Airway Catheters Market

Airway Catheters Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013-2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

Market Overview

The breathing passage or airway is the path through which the flow of air takes place into the lung. The pathway includes; nose, mouth, throat, windpipe and lungs. Airway management is required for emergency trauma patients. According to a report by World Health Organization, airway mismanagement and hypoxia contribute to approximately 34% of pre-hospital trauma road accident deaths. Airway management involves evaluating, planning and making use of medical devices and procedures for restoring as well as maintaining ventilation in a patient. Airway catheters are highly required in these emergency trauma cases where breathing is a problem. Airway catheters are used to remove unwanted foreign objects and debris from the air pathway to allow free and open access of oxygen to distal endobronchial tree. Airway catheters are flexible tube like devices that ensure appropriate ventilation and oxygenation through the airway. Airway catheters come in different exclusive sizes for different preferences and needs of a patient.

Airway Catheters Market: Drivers and Restraints-

Growing incidence of trauma emergency cases are expected to contribute to the growth of airway catheters market during the forecast period.
