By James Aldridge, San Antonio Business Journal

BiO2 Medical has sold the company's first triple lumen Angel Catheter in the European Union.

The device is used to prevent pulmonary embolism in critically ill patients. A hospital in the United Kingdom is currently using the catheter. Hospital employees have already used the device to help save the life of one female patient in ICU.

Bi02 officials say more than 25,000 people die annually from hospital-related blood clots. In the United States, between 200,000 and 300,000 people die annually from pulmonary embolism.

Bi02 Medical has corporate offices in San Antonio and R&D and manufacturing operations in Golden, Colo.
