Covidien : 07 August, 2008  (Company News)
Covidien has acquired the technology assets from CardioDigital, a company specialising in the development of advanced signal processing techniques for patient monitoring.
The technology, which will be used by Covidien’s Respiratory and Monitoring Solutions business unit, reflects the company’s commitment to making investments in clinically relevant product innovations designed to improve patient outcomes.

“The acquisition of CardioDigital’s technology is an exciting opportunity for us to strengthen our patient monitoring business as we partner with our customers to improve outcomes. We believe that the technology will enable significant improvements in current patient monitoring techniques, resulting in enhanced patient care and safety,” said Joe Almeida, president, medical devices, Covidien.

CardioDigital’s innovative technology will complement Respiratory and Monitoring Solution’s market-leading Nellcor pulse oximetry platform. In addition, Almeida said, “This acquisition sets the stage for more of these types of growth opportunities in the future.”
