Date:10/31/2008

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., a leading innovator of physiological monitoring solutions, successfully demonstrated the first Continua pre-certified pulse oximeter at the 5th Annual Connected Health Symposium in Boston, Massachusetts. By meeting Continua's comprehensive Version One guidelines, Nonin Medical's innovative pulse oximeters along with products from over 170 companies worldwide, will enable a simple "plug and play" integration -- resulting in streamlined communications to help consumers and healthcare providers better manage personal health and wellness.

Nonin Medical collaborated with other leading companies in recent months to successfully complete the international connectivity standard for the interoperability of pulse oximeters, ISO/IEEE 11073-10404. "This is a significant step toward eliminating proprietary interfaces, allowing pulse oximetry equipment to communicate freely with other devices," says Kurt Kermes, Standards Architect at Nonin Medical. "It will serve as a great benefit to all areas of healthcare."

Envisioning the shift of healthcare, Nonin Medical has implemented technologies throughout its product offering to ensure adherence to these new open standards. "Nonin has made its vision of streamlined interoperable solutions and information exchange a reality by playing an integral role in the development of new open standards," says Jayant Parthasarathy, Ph.D., Technology Program Manager for Nonin Medical and Vice Chair of Continua's Technical Working Group. "These cross industry efforts in Continua, Bluetooth, USB and IEEE will enable interoperability among medical and consumer devices and ultimately empower individuals to better manage their health.
