BRANFORD, Conn., March 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CAS Medical Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CASM) (CASMED), a leader in medical devices for non-invasive patient monitoring, today announced that the worldwide cumulative net shipment total of FORE-SIGHT Cerebral Oximeters reached 1,000 as of last week. This total includes monitors installed at nine of the top 20 adult cardiac surgery centers and three of the top ten pediatric centers in the U.S. The Company had previously disclosed a net cumulative total of 935 units as of December 31, 2013.
"Reaching this significant milestone is a sign of the continued strong market acceptance of the FORE-SIGHT ELITE™ monitor, which was introduced in September," said Tom Patton, CASMED's President and CEO. "Most importantly, cumulative sales of our disposable oximetry sensors have surpassed 300,000, meaning more than 150,000 adult, child, and newborn patients have benefited from the use of FORE-SIGHT technology. Improving patient care is one of CASMED's core values, and it is rewarding to know that with FORE-SIGHT oximetry we have enabled clinicians around the world to provide better outcomes for so many people.
"In response to the growing interest in cerebral oximetry and the demand for our products, we recently added four direct sales representatives in the U.S. to handle territories where we had been under-represented by independent distributors, bringing our U.S. distribution to nine direct reps plus three manufacturer's rep organizations."
