San Jose, CA (Vocus) September 23, 2010
Electrodes are used in medical industry in electronic devices for detection of electrical signals in patients’ muscle and nerve cells that are created by chemical reactions. These electronic devices are used for the diagnosis of medical conditions. Electrodes are used in a wide range of medical devices such as blood gas analyzers, defibrillators, ECG, EEG, EMG, ENG, electrosurgical devices, fetal scalp monitoring, nasopharyngeal devices, neurological devices, pacemakers, and TENS. Owing to lower initial costs, reduction in lengthy sterilization process, and elimination of chances of cross contamination between patients, the market is veering towards disposable electrodes as compared to reusable electrodes.
