CASMED Announces 9 Scientific Abstracts Demonstrating The Benefits Of FORE-SIGHT Absolute Oximetry
BRANFORD, Conn., Oct. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CAS Medical Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CASM) today announced that nine new scientific abstracts demonstrating the use of the Company's FORE-SIGHT® Absolute Oximeter were presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care (SNACC) this past week in San Diego, CA. These meetings draw over 13,000 anesthesiologists from around the world.
The abstracts demonstrate the value of FORE-SIGHT Absolute Oximetry to help assess cerebral tissue oxygenation levels in a variety of clinical applications including carotid endarterectomy, orthopedic and spinal surgeries, and during cardiac arrest. Researchers showed how cerebral tissue oxygenation can be compromised in these various clinical settings and the importance of monitoring this parameter.
Robert Kopotic, Senior Director of Clinical Affairs of CASMED, stated, "Worldwide research continues to demonstrate the efficacy and utility of FORE-SIGHT technology to monitor cerebral tissue oxygenation in a range of clinical situations. It is our intent to promote cerebral oximetry as a standard of care during surgery, and to make evident the superiority of our FORE-SIGHT absolute oximetry technology in the marketplace."Abstracts Phenylepherine Bolus Given to Treat Hypotension Decreases Cerebral Oxygen Saturation.

(SNACC #81) About CASMED ® - Monitoring What's Vital CAS Medical Systems, Inc. is a leading developer and manufacturer of medical devices for non-invasive patient monitoring. The Company's FORE-SIGHT Absolute Cerebral Oximeter is the first cerebral oximeter available with FDA clearance for non-invasive, continuous measurement of absolute cerebral tissue oxygen saturation for neonates, infants, children and adults. This information helps avert brain damage or death during surgery and in critical care situations by allowing clinicians to identify patients with dangerously low levels of cerebral oxygen and intervene to reverse the condition.
