SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., April 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ICU Medical, Inc., (Nasdaq:ICUI), a leader in the development, manufacture and sale of innovative medical devices used in infusion therapy, oncology and critical care applications, announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.
