Oridion Introduces New Smart Capnography System for Improved Patient Safety
Date:10/11/2007

NEEDHAM, Massachusetts, October 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oridion Systems, Ltd. - (SWX: ORIDN) introduces Smart Capnography(TM), a major step forward in improving patient safety.

This new launch takes place at this week's American Society of Anesthesiologists in San Francisco, CA.

Smart Capnography combines Oridion's most advanced Microstream(R) technology with its new SARA(TM) software for improved alarm management. Microstream allows the clinician to simultaneously monitor ventilation with end tidal carbon dioxide as well as monitor the patient's true respiratory rate. New clinical studies show that SARA, which stands for Smart Alarm Respiratory Analysis, safely reduces alarms by 55%.

Smart Capnography is being launched in response to last year's call from the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) for improved patient monitoring, including continuous carbon dioxide monitoring for patients receiving patient controlled anesthesia (PCA). Numerous clinical studies such as have demonstrated conclusively that carbon dioxide monitoring provides the earliest indication of a change in a patient's breathing status. In fact much precious minutes earlier than traditional pulse oximetry monitoring alone.

In October 2006 the APSF conference set as a goal that no patient should be harmed by opioid-induced ventilatory depression in the postoperative period. To address this goal, healthcare professionals were urged to consider improvements to patient safety with continuous monitoring of both oxygenation and ventilation in patients receiving PCA or neuraxial opioids in the postoperative period.

Oridion is the global leader of innovative capnography monitoring solutions in the critical care, pain management, procedural sedation and emergency medicine settings. Oridion's innovative Microstream technology continues to be the industry gold standard for monitoring patient ventilation in this broad range of clinical settings.

Gerry Feldman, Oridion President states: "Smart Capnography is yet another step in our on-going process of innovation to improve patient safety. Ventilation monitoring is critical to improved patient safety, especially in the PCA setting. Our Smart Capnography Microstream System is the most reliable ventilation monitoring system on the market today because it relies on our uniquely sensitive detection of carbon dioxide - the only parameter that directly measures gas exchange, true ventilation and the earliest indicator of respiratory distress."

Mr. Feldman went on to say that there is a growing body of scientific and clinical evidence that indicates there is a significant risk of serious injury from patient controlled analgesia (PCA) and other opioids in the post-operative period. " Not only has the Joint Commission included recommendations on the use of improved monitoring of ventilation, the APSF has recently released its view that: ...the recognition of patients at increased risk for ventilatory depression and utilization of appropriate continuous monitors such as end tidal carbon dioxide and pulse oximetry, would improve patient safety during pain management in the post-op period."

Currently the new SARA software is pending FDA 510 (k) clearance.
