Accelerated Increase in Military Demand for FAST1 Expected in Coming Months

RICHMOND, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 6, 2005 -- Pyng Medical Corp. (TSX-V: PYT) (OTC BB: PYNGF) is pleased to announce that the F.A.S.T.1 System Training has now become the standard in the US Army.

The recently released Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3) course is now a standard element of training for all US Army medics. With the publication of 50,000 copies of the Combat Medic Field Reference manual, all Active-Duty, Reserve and National Guard medics will have TC3 materials in hand. . The release of the TC3 course follows on the previous strong endorsement of the FAST1 from the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC).

It is notable that the material in the TC3 Field Medic Field Reference and the audiovisual materials utilized in the TC3 training were all supplied to the United States Army by Pyng Medical. Significant for Pyng Medical Corp. is the fact that the FAST1 Intraosseous device is the prescribed intraosseous device to be utilized in the event that a medic cannot establish a peripheral intravenous line by other means.

The roll-out of the TC3 training program will standardize the FAST1 throughout the US Army and is anticipated to lead to a significant increase in FAST1 orders. In addition, the US Air Force and the US Navy Corpsmen working with the US Marine Corps will be exposed to and utilizing the identical training scheme and thus standardizing on the FAST1.

With over 40,000 medics in the US Army and 20,000 medics in the other services being exposed to TC3, Pyng should see significant increases in FAST1 orders from the military, according to Dr. Richard Clinchy, Director of Business Development for Pyng Medical. In addition, there should be a commensurate increase in training supplies and supplies of FAST1 removal tools to the military for Forward Surgical Teams, Combat Support Hospitals, Battalion Aid Stations and other rear echelon care facilities.

With the FAST1 now firmly entrenched as the standard Intraosseous device for the US military, Pyng Medical expects to see significant accelerated adoption of the FAST1 in both the domestic US civilian EMS community as well as adoption by foreign military services as they recognize the standardization being taken by the United States Department of Defense.
