(PRWEB) February 15, 2013
Catheters are used in a number of processes, such as: cardiovascular, urological, intravenous, oximetry, thermodilution, suction and wound drainage processes, that involve the administration or drainage of fluids from the body. The global market for catheters is vibrant and continually evolving with significant investments to improve the capabilities of existing catheters, improve safety features and identify new medical applications.
The growing number of aged people undergoing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures is driving increases in catheter sales. Government regulations also play a key role, mainly in the urological catheter segment, as regulations attempt to promote fewer infections among hospitalized patients through more frequent use of catheterization.
