CHANTILLY, VA (June 8, 2012) – First Line Technology, LLC, a small business provider of Out of the Box Solutions, announced that it will begin selling products from Athena GTX® to deliver high-quality, innovative wireless monitors that, along with the AmbuBus®, Bus Stretcher Conversion Kit, and other First Line Disaster Preparedness and Response (DPR) products, will enable municipalities and organizations to better their emergency response capabilities.

“The line of Athena GTX wireless monitors that we will be supplying integrate seamlessly with other DRP products like the AmbuBus and mobile hospitals, and will enable first responders to provide a higher level of care and patient management during mass casualty events or hospital evacuations,” said First Line Technology Vice President Randy Sakowitz. “Athena GTX’s monitors are innovative, reliable, and will no doubt create a higher standard of care during transport and at receiving hospitals. We are proud to be a supplier of the WVSM®.”

The WVSM (Wireless Vital Signs Monitor) from Athena GTX monitors non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP), oxygen saturation (SpO2), and three lead electrocardiogram (ECG). The monitor is small enough to mount onto a blood pressure cuff, making it ideal for point of injury care and use on First Line’s AmbuBus for mass casualty transport and response, which can be used during the evacuation of hospitals, nursing homes, or other mass care facilities during emergencies. The device itself is a small, rugged, highly mobile monitor, and the software used by the WSVM can be used wirelessly with any portable computer or the Apple iPod, and is capable of capturing up to 4.5 hours of patient data and trending for up to 20 patients, then easily transmitted to casualty receiving facilities.

“We at Athena GTX are very pleased that First Line Technology has agreed to distribute the Wireless Vital Signs Monitor® (WVSM),” said Athena GTX Vice President of Business Development Lyn Darrah. “The combination of the AmbuBus, Bus Stretcher Conversion Kit, with the Athena GTX WVSM will give EMS personnel the ability to provide the highest quality of care and transport to patients. We are looking forward to working with an innovative, solution providing company such as First Line.”

Teaming the AmbuBus with the Athena GTX WSVM should provide an opportunity for cities, states, and emergency preparedness and response agencies to better their disaster preparedness plans, something First Line is continually striving for. First Line’s DPR division develops and distributes equipment to aid in evacuation, sheltering, and pandemic operations.
