SonoSite Highlights New Patient Safety Technology And Other Advances For Vascular Access Applications

BOTHELL, WA - September 14, 2009 - SonoSite, Inc. (Nasdaq:SONO), the world leader and specialist in hand-carried and point-of-care ultrasound, announced today new patient safety technology, mobile power solutions and image quality advances for vascular access applications. The company will be showcasing the new products and capabilities at the annual scientific meeting of the Association for Vascular Access (AVA) being held in Las Vegas September 14th - 18th, 2009.

SonoSite will be showing the 6-pound NanoMaxx ultrasound tool1, the latest addition to its suite of specialized products for point-of-care visualization in medicine. Combining one-button optimization technology with a fluid resistant touch screen user interface, the NanoMaxx system is highly sophisticated, easy to use and easy to disinfect. While other touch screens require a stylet to activate system controls, the sensitivity of the NanoMaxx touch screen allows the user to operate the system with the touch of a finger while wearing sterile gloves. The image quality and color flow mapping on the NanoMaxx provide increased utility versus alternatives by giving users the ability to identify nerve bundles and distinguish veins from arteries, delivering the visualization needed for safe and effective line placements.
