Increasing prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases and rising number of surgeries: a major market driver
Pulse oximetry is used for a number of indications such as endotracheal intubation, cardiac arrests, procedural sedation, asthma/COPD, respiratory complaints, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), sleep disorders/sleep apnea, and shunts in cyanotic heart diseases. Chronic respiratory disorders such as COPD, asthma, and OSA are increasing at an alarming rate in both developed and developing countries.
Asthma is the most common disorder accounting for six to seven in every 1000 deaths annually, worldwide. In the APAC region, asthma is increasing rapidly in low and middle-income countries. Such increase in respiratory disorders can be attributed to the high prevalence of smoking and increased exposure to risk factors such as indoor and outdoor air pollution, occupational dust and fumes. These factors are increasing the demand for pulse oximeters, which, in turn, is driving the growth of the global pulse oximetry market.
