Anesthesiologists use anesthesia devices to support the administration of anesthetic and medical gas. The commonly used device is the continuous-flow anesthetic machine that provides a continuous flow of air with a regulated supply of gas. The advanced modern anesthesia devices are monitor and touch screen display that helps in monitoring the patient’s heartbeat. Anesthesia devices market is segmented into various types of products such as anesthesia machines, anesthesia accessories, anesthesia information systems, and anesthesia monitoring devices. Anesthesia devices market is highly competitive due to the presence of several companies. Advanced technology is the key factor that increases the competition among the anesthesia devices manufacturers. North American leading vendors in the anesthesia devices market are Covidien Plc, Draeger Safety Diagnostics Inc., LEON, GE Healthcare, Royal Medicine, Phillips Healthcare, Heyer Medical AG, Becton Dickinson and Company, Smith’s Group Plc., Ambu S/A, Teleflex Incorporated, Koninklijke Philips NV, Penlon, and Spacelabs. The major factors affecting the anesthesia devices market are rise in number of surgical procedures, lack of trained anaesthesiologists and improving economic conditions.
According to “Health Care Market Research Reports”, stand-alone anesthesia monitoring devices, integrated anesthesia monitoring devices, anesthesia machines and breathing circuits are the major types of devices used in the medical field. Anesthesia monitoring devices are used in measuring the various vital signs including ECG, saturated oxygen, and optional temperature measurements, blood pressure, and multigas. Advanced technologies in MRI’s enabled anesthesia monitoring devices in setting alarms, provided with colour LCD monitor, three wireless sensors, and autonomous battery options that increased the adoption of health monitoring devices in North America. The increasing number of hospitals and surgical care has driven the growth of anesthesia monitoring devices market. Hospital staff is trained about how to use anesthesia devices which has increased the presence of skilled anesthesia professionals that improved the surgical care techniques in North America. This trend has led to adoption of more anesthesia gas monitoring devices over the recent years.
Integrated anesthesia monitoring devices help in monitoring the depth of anesthesia, vital parameters such as blood pressure, heart rate, pulse oximetry, respiration rate, and body temperature after anesthesia is administration in a patient’s body. With increasing number of general anesthesia cases there will be an increase in the adoption rates of integrated anesthesia monitoring devices. The introduction of anesthesia machines with special features like advanced ventilators, additional and new modes of ventilation, graphical screens, and electronic ventilators are driven by medical software and is very useful for the patients with chronic diseases. Breathing circuits provide gas and vapour delivery with a constant fresh gas flow (FGF) and convert the continuous steady flow into physiologic cyclic ventilation flow.
Ken Research “Health Care Industry Research and Market Reports” discuss in detail all t he factors associated with the sector and their impact such as Population aged 60 and above are vulnerable to age-related conditions like COPD, arthritis, and heart disorders which help to understand need of the equipments and devices in the industry. Rise in individuals with such diseases has demanded for user-friendly surgical equipment for treatment. Traumatic accidents and injuries are other conditions that lead to emergency surgical procedures which need the use of anesthesia devices. Growing awareness in medical safety has contributed to the growth of anesthesia devices market in North America. The government agencies are conduct training programs for anesthetists and anaesthesiologists to facilitate best practices for anesthesia treatment that helps to increase the number of skilled professionals. These trends in the anesthesia devices market will continue growing over the next few years and North America will witness a drastic growth in this sector.
