Patient Monitoring

Patient Monitoring Devices

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.

Study Background

Bcc Published Its Last Study Of The Patient Monitoring Market In 2006. At The Time, There Was Little Consensus Among Analysts Regarding The Size Of This Market. Since Then, The Market Has Continued To Evolve, Due To Factors Such As Aging Population, Increased Incidence Of Heart Disease And Other Conditions Requiring Close Patient Monitoring, And Technological Developments Such As Wireless Remote Monitoring.

Thus, It Would Seem That The Time Has Come For A New Review Of The Market's Overall Size And Direction. Such A Study Should Enable Manufacturers As Well As Distributors To Identify The Market Segments With The Highest Growth Potential, And Understand Competitive Conditions As A Guide To Allocating Financial And Human Resources.
