WideMed's sleep apnea monitor was to identify cardiology events

WideMed Ltd. (TASE:WDMD) today reported success in a clinical trial of its Morpheu automated device for monitoring and documenting sleep apnea and cardiology variables.

WideMed already has FDA clearance for the diagnosis of sleep apnea and cardiology events in intensive care units, and the company signed a marketing agreement with GE Healthcare two years ago. In its financial report for the first quarter, WideMed said that joint marketing of Morpheus would begin in a few months.
