MINNEAPOLIS, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., a leading innovator of noninvasive physiological monitoring solutions, announced today that it is a named supplier for a 2010 Medical Design Excellence Award winning product—the Philips Respironics Alice© PDx™ Diagnostic System.

The Alice© PDx™ portable diagnostic recording device is intended for Obstructive Sleep Apnea screening, follow-up and diagnostic assessment of cardio-respiratory sleep disorders. It enables patients to be tested outside of the lab without compromising study results and helps clinicians avoid the costs associated with retesting. Incorporating Nonin Medical's proven PureSAT® pulse oximetry (SpO2) technology, the Alice PDx system uses Nonin's OEM III SpO2 module. An easy-to-integrate oximetry solution, the OEM III module's compact design, power efficiency and expanded output capabilities provides manufacturers with dependable, accurate performance and maximum flexibility.

"Nonin Medical's OEM III module was the ideal choice for the Philips Respironics Alice© PDx™ device. The OEM III module bundled Nonin's PureSAT® SpO2 technology in a form factor right for our device.  Beyond the technical merits of the OEM III, Philips Respironics developers enjoyed professional guidance and support from Nonin Medical along the way," said John Liston, Project Manager Diagnostics & Clinical Software Applications, Home Healthcare Solutions.
