The Company reported $103,327 in revenues from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to revenues of $21,505 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase in revenues is primarily attributable to an increase in product sales to customers both in the United States and internationally.

The decrease in interest expense is primarily attributable to a decrease in interest expense related to convertible notes.

The decrease in net loss per share is primarily due to the cumulative effect of an increase in revenues, a decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses and a decrease in interest expense.

The Company expanded its distribution channel by signing several new distributors, including AED Professionals, a significant AED distributor in the United States;
