Compumedics Home Sleep Testing System Selected for Use in US National Institute of Health (NIH)-Sponsored Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) Sleep Study
Date:12/6/2010

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Compumedics USA, Inc. (CMP.ASX) today announced its new Somte® PSG portable sleep-testing systems were chosen as part of a major new study to further investigate the link between sleep disorders and cardio-vascular disease in various ethnic and racial populations.  Somte® PSG was chosen because of its ability to record complex sleep studies in the home environment with acceptable participant burden, according to Dr. Susan Redline, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and the senior investigator for the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) Sleep Study.

The contract is worth approximately US $300 thousand and continues a long record of success for Compumedics in supplying NIH-funded studies.  Importantly it supports Compumedics' technology and product offering for the relatively new home sleep study (HST) market, which is undergoing double digit growth with global HST revenues already exceeding US $20 million.  Patients enrolled in the MESA Sleep Study will be monitored from the Reading Center located at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass.

"The Compumedics Somte® PSG systems allow us to record all of the parameters of sleep and breathing that we need to evaluate and quantify abnormal sleep patterns but in the more natural environment of the patients' homes," said Prof. Susan Redline, M.D., M.P.H.  "The Somte® PSG systems also have the ability to capture and analyze heart rhythm data related to the sleep and breathing patterns, which is very important in studying this population."

Dr. David Burton, chairman and chief executive officer of Compumedics noted, "The NIH MESA Sleep Study holds special significance to Compumedics.  It was Professor Redline's team who led the original Sleep Heart Health Study (SHHS), during their important investigation into the cardio-vascular consequences of sleep-disordered breathing.  It is on
