IRVINE, Calif., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SurgiCount Medical, Inc., the wholly-owned operating subsidiary of Patient Safety Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: PSTX), today announced it is introducing a new proprietary surgical sponge at the upcoming Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) 60th Congress March 3-7 in San Diego, California. The patent protected SAFE-T Lap is designed to allow for improved visibility during surgery and enhanced X-ray detectability.

"The SAFE-T Lap is a simple, innovative product designed to provide users of the Safety-Sponge® System an added layer of protection and improved ease of use," stated Brian E. Stewart , President and Chief Executive Officer of Patient Safety Technologies, Inc. "Based on customer insight and demand for a surgical sponge that is more visible both during use and on X-ray, we look forward to introducing this line of lap sponges."

The SurgiCount Safety-Sponge® System is clinically proven to help eliminate retained surgical sponges[1] and decrease the occurrences of misplaced and miscounted sponges[2], enabling hospitals to perform fewer X-rays related to this issue. The SAFE-T Lap is designed to provide a more easily visible lap sponge both during use in surgery and for those times when the established clinical standard of an X-ray is the best course of action for the safety of the patient.
