Cardiac Science Introduces MTWA Module for Stress Testing

BOTHELL, Wash., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardiac Science Corporation (Nasdaq: CSCX), a global leader in automated external defibrillator (AED) and diagnostic cardiac monitoring devices, today announced the launch of a Microvolt T-Wave Alternans (MTWA) module that integrates with its industry-leading Quinton Q-Stress cardiac stress systems.



"Physicians that have Q-Stress systems can add the MTWA module to their existing Q-Stress systems, or order it as an option with new systems," said Tony Titus, Cardiac Science vice president of marketing. "The MTWA test is a clinically proven test for assessing the risk of sudden cardiac arrest and it can be performed during a standard stress test session. It is the only test of its kind that Medicare will reimburse."

Cardiac Science teamed with Tewksbury, MA-based Cambridge Heart (OTC Bulletin Board: CAMH), a developer of noninvasive diagnostic tests for cardiac disease, to create the MTWA module that has been integrated into the Q-Stress systems.

"We are pleased to have reached this key milestone, and look forward to working with Cardiac Science to support the sales and marketing phase of our partnership," said Ali Haghighi-Mood, Cambridge Heart's President and CEO. "The launch of the MTWA module for the Q-Stress system marks an important step in making our technology accessible to a much broader segment of physicians and patients."
