FRISCO, Texas and PALATINE, Ill., Sept. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OxySure® Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:OXYS) ("OxySure") and AED Professionals ("AED Professionals") today announced they have signed a distribution agreement for AED Professionals to market and promote OxySure's flagship product, the OxySure Model 615 portable emergency oxygen device, and all related accessories. AED Professionals will offer OxySure as an add-on product to their existing installed base of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), and as a companion product for new AED sales. AED Professionals, General Medical Devices, Inc. company is one of the largest distributors of AEDs in the United States.
Ms. Kanchan K. Lall, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of General Medical Devices, Inc./AED Professionals stated: "The accepted clinical protocols require the application of supplemental oxygen as soon as possible – post-resuscitation, in cardiac emergencies and cardiac arrest in particular. OxySure provides a proven, safe and easy to use solution that allows a lay rescuer to administer the oxygen, while waiting for first responders to arrive. We are pleased to partner with OxySure, as this will make us a single source supplier of AEDs and first-aid emergency oxygen equipment to meet the needs of our customers."
"We are pleased about the opportunity to work with AED Professionals," said Julian Ross, CEO of OxySure." "We believe OxySure's Model 615 is a natural complement to AEDs, which is why this partnership makes so much sense," he added.
