ECG Telemetry Devices: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 05, 2011
ECG telemetry devices are highly useful in addressing the needs of patients who are most prone to cardiac problems during ambulation. ECG telemetry devices offer excellent utility by monitoring the patients for cardio-respiratory dysfunction, and at the same time, allowing the patients to be ambulatory in the hospital before they are discharged. The technology is used to obtain clear, uninterrupted transmission from the patient to the monitoring station. ECG telemetry is frequently utilized in hospital units such as post-coronary care units, and for uninterrupted monitoring of cardiac arrhythmias patients. In addition to the transmission of ECG data, telemetric monitoring devices also relay data associated with blood pressure, and hemoglobin oxygen saturation. Such comprehensive data facilitates physicians to determine vital physiological changes in the patient, and take appropriate treatment measures.
As with other industries, the economic turmoil impacted medical equipment industry during 2008 and 2009. However, the impact was more or less moderate on the ECG telemetry devices market. Aging population and growing cases of cardiovascular diseases are expected to play a major role in the growth of the market. With growing opportunities, telemetry device manufacturers are adopting several techniques to develop the next-generation devices.
The United States represents the largest regional market for ECG telemetry devices worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on ECG Telemetry Devices. With growing number of US citizens receiving home care, the market for ECG telemetry devices holds high potential for growth in the home care monitoring devices and telemetry devices segments. Rising expenditure and scarcity of alternative home care resources and services are further expected to add to the growing demand for home telemetry monitoring devices in the country. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market for ECG telemetry devices with market projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 5.0% over the analysis period. Central Display/Control/Recording Station segment constitutes the largest product segment of ECG telemetry devices. The stations typically are installed with a computer to display, control and record the patient’s information. Electrical Leads represents the fastest growing product segment of the market. Electrical leads are connected to the digital transmitter and to the patient and aid in collecting information about the patient.
Most of the larger hospitals are moving towards computerization for maintaining Electrocardiogram (ECG) records and investing heavily in data management systems to allow physicians to assess the comparative analysis of patients’ histories. The data management system offers hospitals with increased efficiency, reduces data loss, and provides accurate billing for medical procedures. This method of data assembly offers operational and administrative advantages to healthcare institutions justifying its expense.
