Carbon Dioxide Monitors: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2009
The carbon dioxide monitor market is witnessing an increasing trend over the last few years, primarily driven by enhanced requirements in patient monitoring, especially outside the operating rooms. Though majority of capnography applications are in the operating rooms for detecting and identifying the end-tidal CO2 levels, new and emerging applications including critical care units, recovery rooms, labor and delivery rooms, emergency rooms, post-anesthesia care units, and intensive care units are fueling demand for capnography equipment in the recent times.
The use of capnography secured unanimous approval from anesthesiologists worldwide and its scope is attracting physicians in other specialties who are keen to incorporate this reliable monitoring aid and diagnostic tool in their respective clinical procedures. Pediatrics is one such area that is looking at capnography for enhanced results.
The capnography market was re-energized in the late 1990's, with the launch of new self- calibrating, low-volume, inline-sensors, and dual stream capabilities being provided through the microstream technology. Use of microstream capnography gained clear acceptance in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). For years, EtCO2 monitoring remained a tough task in NICU primarily due to high respiratory rates and small tidal volumes of patient. Microstream technology's capability to monitor EtCO2 with low-flow sampling rates supported the success of microstream monitoring in neonate and children patient population.
