The telemetry monitoring device market includes wireless patient worn monitors.

Telemetry monitors have traditionally been used for monitoring one or two parameters. However, recent advancements have enabled these devices to monitor, on average, three or four parameters. The patient worn monitors allow for continuous monitoring of ambulatory patients within the area of coverage. Signals from the patient worn device are transmitted to a central station where nurses can monitor patient vital signs. Wireless ambulatory telemetry is most commonly found in cardiac care areas, including stroke units, coronary care units, step and stepdown units, where the ability for patients to be mobile is especially important.

The total market for wireless ambulatory telemetry monitoring devices consisted of individual patient-worn monitors as well as the associated central stations which collect data from several monitors throughout a department or hospital unit. Typically, new installations will often see a central station accompany between eight and twelve patient-worn monitors; however, as cost-saving initiatives are implemented in the wake of reduced capital equipment expenditures, this number often increases to between 12 to 20 patient-worn units per central station.

The total patient worn monitor market represented the majority of the total market and will remain this way over the forecast period. This is due to the fact that patient-worn units may be purchased separately to replace a broken or misplaced monitor. Over the forecast period, sales of patient-worn telemetry units will grow time times faster than sales of the telemetry central stations.

The total market will continue to see moderate growth driven by a prevalent interest to invest in patient-worn monitors across unmonitored lower-acuity hospital settings. Acute care areas where telemetry is seeing increased adoption include the recovery and general care floors, where continuous monitoring helps to reduce avoidable complications, as well as critical care settings, such as the cardiac care unit (CCU). On the other hand, new efforts to combat excess strain on hospital resources and alarm fatigue are expected to temper future growth. Revenue is thus projected to increase steadily, albeit at a slower rate, towards the end of the forecast period.
