During the quarter ended May 30, 2008, the Company continued its commitment to invest in the Myotech Circulatory Support System (CSS) and entered into the next stage of development, with a sharpened focus on the acute resuscitation market segment, where there is a large patient population not adequately served by existing technologies.
