MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., September 20, 2010

Nonin Medical, Inc., a leading innovator of noninvasive physiological monitoring solutions, today introduced new pulse oximetry products, a new clinical guidebook and a new European sales, distribution and customer service center at the European Respiratory Society (ERS) 2010 Annual Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

Commenting on the company's presence at ERS 2010, Kevin McGowan, vice president, sales, said,
"This year, Nonin Medical will focus on providing clinicians with highly versatile pulse oximetry and capnography solutions, which can help them better assess and manage patients with respiratory disorders in diverse settings ranging from the lab to the hospital to the home. Nonin is able to offer this degree of versatility because our industry-leading PureSAT® technology delivers proven accuracy in the widest range of patient populations and clinical settings. In addition, we are pleased to make available the ‘Clinical Use of Pulse Oximetry’ pocket reference guide, which can help clinicians better recognize patients with chronic lung disease symptoms. Finally, we are excited to announce the opening of Nonin Medical AB, our new sales, distribution and service center, which is designed to provide our European customers with more efficient and cost-effective support.”

Products and technologies will be on display at Nonin Medical’s booth #C.100 at the Fira Barcelona, from Sunday, September 19, to Tuesday, September 21, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Wednesday, September 22, 8:30 a.m. to noon. Highlights include:

New versatile wrist-worn pulse oximeter for European distribution:
WristOx2, Model 3150

Engineered with Nonin Medical’s PureSAT® SpO2 technology, the WristOx2, Model 3150 is the most versatile wrist-worn pulse oximeter available with proven performance in the widest range of patient populations and settings. Built on a cross-functional platform, the WristOx2, Model 3150 will replace both the WristOx® 3100 and 4100 models and features performance upgrades such as increased connectivity with both Bluetooth® wireless and USB technologies, enhanced memory and longer battery life. Also featuring a new sensor line, new WristOx2 sensors are exclusively designed for use with the new WristOx2, Model 3150 for added convenience during spot check and long-term monitoring applications.

New disposable sensor lines: 6500 Durafoam, 7000 Flexi-Form® III, 6000 Cloth

Nonin Medical will unveil the revolutionary extended-life Durafoam disposable sensor designed for maximum comfort and secure positioning during extended-wear situations. Nonin will also feature the recently released 6000 cloth series and 7000 Flexi-Form III series disposable sensors. The 6000 series consists of a stretch, tear-resistant cloth that’s convenient for positioning on hard-to-fit patients, while the soft, highly conformable material of the 7000 series provides patient comfort.

New clinical guidebook: “Clinical Use of Pulse Oximetry: Pocket Reference 2010”

One of the main differentiators between Nonin Medical and other fingertip oximeter manufacturers is disease-state knowledge and commitment to patient/clinician partnerships. Developed by an expert panel consisting of members from World Family Doctors (Wonca) and the International COPD Coalition (ICC), “Clinical Use of Pulse Oximetry: Pocket Reference 2010” provides guidance for the use of pulse oximetry in patient care.
