Market Research Report by Aarkstore Patient Monitoring Markets
Posted May 19 2011 10:38am
Patient monitoring is vital to care in operating rooms, emergency rooms, intensive care units and critical care units. It has proven invaluable for respiratory therapy, recovery rooms, outpatient care, transport, radiology, catheterization laboratories and gastroenterology departments, as well as for ambulatory, home and sleep screening applications. Patient monitoring can reduce the risk of infection and other complications, and it can assist in providing for patient comfort. Moreover, patient monitoring products measure, display and document physiological information obtained at regular intervals over time from sensors attached to the patient or other input devices. The qualifier “at regular intervals over time” is used to distinguish patient monitoring devices from diagnostic kits and devices, which are typically used once or a few times to diagnose a patient’s condition and/or plan a course of therapy. Measured parameters include electrocardiogram (ECG), invasive and noninvasive blood pressure, pulse rate, pulse oximetry, body temperature, respiration rate, end-tidal CO2 and other specialized parameters. Products vary from specialized single-parameter instruments to monitors with the ability to measure multiple parameters and interface with other instruments.
