"Oridion has been the prime mover in establishing capnography and, in particular, Microstream® as the leader in ventilation monitoring,” Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Zachary Bujnoch
Jerusalem/Needham (PRWEB) February 17, 2010
Oridion Systems Ltd. (SIX Swiss Exchange: ORIDN) the creator of Smart CapnographyTM - announced today that it was selected as the recipient of the North American “2010 Customer Value Enhancement Award” by Frost & Sullivan, a leading global consulting company. The Award recognizes Oridion’s focus on enhancing the value it delivers to its customers, its ability to understand and recognize the ventilation monitoring market’s dynamic needs, and its unparalleled technology leadership, all of which have enabled Oridion to effect major improvements in ventilation monitoring.
The award by Frost & Sullivan recognizes Oridion’s approach to enhance customer value and its efforts in advancing ventilation monitoring technology to improve patient safety and care. Oridion demonstrates that capnography monitoring is exceptionally useful to assure patient safety in intensive care units, emergency response, procedural sedation and pain management. It has expanded the growing and evolving capnography market and succeeded in accelerating capnography’s penetration into existing and new clinical environments in which it fulfills important, previously unmet clinical needs.
“Oridion has enhanced perceived value within the capnography market through three key elements – (1) by promoting the improved safety and necessity of capnography monitoring, (2) through well-executed targeting of key environments in the healthcare system, and (3) through the continuing innovation and quality of its products and services”, says Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Zachary Bujnoch. “These interweaving factors have allowed Oridion to not only enhance customer value within the capnography market, but also further penetrate the market as a whole. Oridion has been the prime mover in establishing capnography and, in particular, Microstream® as the leader in ventilation monitoring.”
Frost & Sullivan also recognizes the potential contribution of Oridion’s new key Smart Capnography offering, the Integrated Pulmonary Index™ (IPI). IPI integrates four parameters (end-tidal CO2, respiration rate, pulse rate and oxygen saturation SpO2) into a single index value. This value holds the promise of a quicker and more complete evaluation of a patient’s respiratory status at a single glance. It also has the potential to increase the perceived value of capnography and ventilation monitoring in the eyes of customers and end users. This is especially the case in environments in which the caregivers are not specialists in anesthesia and ventilation, such as general floor nurses or procedural sedation personnel. And, by trending the new index, hospital personnel will be provided with even more actionable decision-support data.
“Our mission at Oridion is to improve medicine and save lives. We do this by always being focused on bringing the best solutions to the market and delivering major improvements in value to our partners, customers and end-users. A measure of our success is that, despite the current economic constraints, more and more health care systems have embraced Oridion Microstream capnography as their life saving solution wherever patients at risk of ventilatory depression are treated. We are honored that our approach and results have been recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the selection of Oridion for this fine Award,” commented Gerry Feldman, President of Oridion.
