ST. PAUL, Minn. -- August 14, 2013

Smiths Medical, a leading global medical device manufacturer, announced today
that the United States Navy awarded the company with a contract to expand the
inventory of its Level 1^® H-1200 Fast Flow Fluid Warmers aboard the USNS
Mercy medical treatment facility hospital ship.

When lives are at stake from significant blood loss due to trauma or major
surgery, the Level 1^® Fast Flow fluid warmer provides a rapid flow of
normothermic blood and I.V. fluids. Even a small drop in body temperature can
be detrimental, delaying recovery or allowing infection to set in. Level 1^®
H-1200 Fast Flow fluid warmers allow rapid infusion of blood or I.V. fluids at
body temperature.

"Serving the men and women of the USNS Mercy, and those who find care aboard
her, with the highest quality medical equipment is an honor and a privilege
for Smiths Medical," said Srini Seshadri, President, Smiths Medical. "Our
Level 1^® convective and fluid warming devices have long been known for
outstanding dependability and performance, important qualities to all
caregivers and patients, but particularly vital to those in remote locations.”
