Date:5/25/2009

Oridion today announced that it signed an OEM agreement with a leading global manufacturer of resuscitation devices. With this agreement, Oridion Microstream® capnography solutions will be incorporated into a defibrillator monitoring system at a future date.

Jerusalem/Needham, MA (PRWEB) May 26, 2009 -- Oridion Systems Ltd. (SIX Swiss Exchange: ORIDN) today announced that it signed an OEM agreement with a leading global manufacturer of resuscitation devices. With this agreement, Oridion Microstream® capnography solutions will be incorporated into a defibrillator monitoring system at a future date.

The patented Microstream® end tidal carbon dioxide (etCO2) measurement technologies and proprietary breath sampling (FilterLine®) products improve patient safety by providing the earliest assessment of a patient's ventilatory status in both intubated and non intubated patients.

Researchers have shown that capnography is an important tool during emergency applications. It has, for example, proven far superior in recognizing misplaced endotracheal tubes when compared to traditional clinical subjective evaluations(1). Other studies show that etCO2 levels should be monitored during CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and should be regarded as having important prognostic value in predicting the outcome of resuscitative efforts(2).

Gerry Feldman, President of Oridion Systems Ltd., said: "We are very proud to have entered into this agreement. It demonstrates further recognition of the value Microstream respiratory solutions bring to the emergency care market. This alliance combines our newest partner's formidable strength in defibrillator/monitor products with Oridion global leadership in capnography technology in order to improve patient safety and patient outcomes."
