    medical device tax

    1) I'm pretty sure it does not apply to exports and they constitute 42% of Atrion sales
    2) Short run effect is hard to judge since like any other input cost, it may take time to pass on (I would have thought it would be a simple pass through but that is not what Zimmer (ZMH) thinks). Complicating things is that it does not apply to end of year inventory based on a Zimmer CC.
    3) The whole rationale of the new health law is that access to care will improve, which should boost demand longer term and therefore should be a positive - unless ATRION products are being used for procedures data mining, etc. suggests are not cost effective, and this aspect of the law actually gets implemented.
