VITAL HEART SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES RAPID ACCEPTANCE OF ITS VITAL HEART CHECKPOINT CENTERS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

 BEVERLY, Mass./LA JOLLA, Calif., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Vital Heart Systems (NASDAQ: VHRTC) announced placement of the Variance Cardiograph(TM) in multiple fitness center locations in the greater San Diego area. These sites have been designated as official Vital Heart CheckPoint(TM) centers, which utilize the Variance Cardiograph instrument in expanded services to their clientele.
 The four fitness centers involved in the agreement are: The San Diego Athletic Club, the Bonita Athletic Club, Del Mar Workout, and the Escondido Athletic Club. The Vital Heart CheckPoint program has expanded rapidly after Vital Heart Systems' July 6, 1993 announcement that Personalized Workout of La Jolla would be the first fitness center in the nation to make the Variance Cardiograph available to the general public. Cardiologists at the University of California Medical School, Department of Cardiology, at San Diego are providing physician over-read and patient recommendations for Personalized Workout.
 The SV-4000 Variance Cardiograph is a non-invasive instrument which is designed to accurately detect coronary artery disease (CAD) while the patient is at rest, in addition to providing reduced cost of care. A cardiologist is associated with each fitness center to provide medical expertise required in reviewing the results. G. Robert Tatum III, president and CEO of Vital Heart Systems, Inc., stated, "We believe California will be one of our strongest markets because of the rapid changes taking place in the health care delivery system towards providing faster, more cost effective diagnosis and care."
 Vital Heart Systems, Inc., with headquarters in Beverly, develops and markets the Variance Cardiograph, a non-invasive, stress-free, diagnostic instrument to aid physicians in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. The stock of Vital Heart Systems, Inc. is traded on the over-the-counter market under the NASDAQ symbol VHRTC.
