India Market Report for Pulse Oximetry 2017

Pulse oximetry, being the most common measurement in healthcare, will stand to benefit. Pulse oximetry can be used across all levels of care in hospital, alternate and home environments. Within the hospital environment, patients with respiratory and cardiac complications are continuously monitored with pulse oximeters. Measurements can also be taken at select intervals (5 to 15 minutes) depending on the condition of the patient. In the alternate market, which includes homecare, it is common for patients to be monitored less routinely; perhaps as little as two to three times per day.

The market for peripheral pulse oximetry includes stand-alone bedside, handheld and fingertip monitors, as well as reusable and disposable sensors, and OEM device boards. Elements from the venous and tissue saturation markets are not explored in the scope of this report.

The level of oxygen present within the body is vital to its function. Monitoring of oxygen saturation within the body consists of measuring the percentage of hemoglobin binding sites in the bloodstream occupied by oxygen. As oxygen travels around the body it is consumed and the levels decrease. Functionality can be affected, and complications can result when cells do not have an adequate supply.

Pulse oximetry devices are used for measuring the oxygen content bound to hemoglobin within a patient’s blood stream. The measurement is taken non-invasively by attaching the device to an adult patient’s finger or earlobe, whereas in neonatal patients, the device can be attached to the foot due to the patient’s smaller size. A light containing both red and infrared wavelengths is passed through this part of the body. A measure of oxygenation can be made based on the ratio of changing absorbance of the red and infrared light caused by the difference in color between oxygen-bound and oxygen unbound blood hemoglobin.
