Oridion Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Capnostream(TM)20 Monitor With Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM)

JERUSALEM and NEEDHAM, Massachusetts, February 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oridion Systems Ltd. (SIX Swiss Exchange: ORIDN). Oridion Systems Ltd. has received an FDA 510(k) clearance for its Capnostream(TM)20 Monitor with Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM).

The Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM), the latest Oridion Smart Capnography(TM) initiative, utilizes sophisticated algorithms to integrate the real time measures and interactions of four complex parameters - end tidal CO2 (EtCO2), respiration rate, pulse rate and SpO2 (oxygen saturation) into a single index value. The result is displayed on a scale from 1-10, where 10 indicates optimal pulmonary status.

By using the Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM), clinicians can quickly and easily assess a patient's ventilation status and monitor a patient's changing condition, thus facilitating more timely interventions to reduce patient risk and improve outcomes.

The Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM) has been clinically validated as evidenced by medical research studies conducted and presented at major conferences in 2008 and 2009. At the recent annual meeting of the Society for Technology in Anesthesia (STA) in San Antonio, Texas, research findings were presented by Dr. David Gozal, MD from Hadassah University Hospital and Prof. Ya'acov Gozal, MD from Shaare Zedek Medical Center, both in Jerusalem, on the validity and application of the Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM) in the pediatric population. The study concluded the Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM) would be "particularly useful for non-expert personnel monitoring patients undergoing procedures requiring sedation or recovering from them". Based on a further study on its reliability in the post-operative setting, Prof. Ya'acov Gozal stated that since the Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM) is displayed as a single value, "it may simplify the monitoring of patients in a busy PACU."

In addition, a study presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) in Orlando, Florida in October, 2008, demonstrated how the Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM) provides an accurate, uncomplicated and inclusive assessment of a patient's ventilatory status.

"We are encouraged and delighted by this FDA clearance," said Gerry Feldman, President of Oridion. "Oridion has worked hard to develop safer and easier patient safety technologies. The Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM) will make sophisticated determinations of pulmonary adequacy far more efficient for the diagnosing clinician. More importantly, it will enable the general floor nurse to confidently decide when to call for help. Our mission is to take risk and cost out of medicine and the Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM) is an important success on that journey."

Oridion is the global leader of capnography monitoring solutions and its Microstream(R) capnography technology is the standard of care in ventilation monitoring.
