ICU Medical Launches Neutron™ Needlefree Catheter Patency Device With Constant Neutral Pressure Backed by a $100,000 Guarantee to Reduce Catheter Occlusions

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ICU Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICUI) announced it is launching the Neutron needlefree catheter patency device with constant neutral pressure today at the Association for Vascular Access Annual Scientific Meeting in San Jose, CA.

"This dramatic decrease in occlusions is particularly significant because home infusion patients are going about their daily activities and generate more movement, which can be a primary cause of b
