The Aggravating Need for Early CHD Detection
MRI-compatible pulse oximeters – designed using non-magnetic components to enable safe and accurate monitoring of patients’ vital signs during MRI scans – have garnered considerable traction in in-depth analysis of diseases. Apart from using in connection with congenital heart defects (CHD), MRI pulse oximeters are increasingly used as a standard diagnostic measure in the area of anesthetics, intensive care, and emergency care. These devices continue to gain momentum as a viable screening tool to detect clinical and subclinical levels of hypoxemia that could raise suspicions for critical CHD. As CCHD remains one of the common birth defects with high risk of mortality, MRI pulse oximeters are smart pulse oximeters creating a new era for the diagnosis of such diseases at the initial level that can effectively initiate necessary treatments.
Considering the rapid shifts towards quality-based healthcare models, key manufacturers of MRI pulse oximeters are incorporating fiber optic SpO2 sensor and intelligent pulse-by-pulse filtering technology in their products that can provide a wide variety of display indicators to ensure reliable readings. However, in most cases, healthcare professionals do not prefer pulse oximetry testing during MRI scans in the view of time-consuming procedures, which continue to limit the sales of MRI pulse oximeters.
Tracking Market Landscape across Geographies
Demand for MRI pulse oximeters is currently based on high prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases along with an increase in the adoption of radiological technologies for accurate diagnosis of diseases. The future of MRI pulse oximeters, however, can be disruptive with the emergence of cost-effective alternatives including wireless and wrist-worn pulse oximeters which provide precise SpO2 measurements and are not restricted to MRI environments. While the U.S. and EU5 continue to offer greater opportunities due to strong presence of key stakeholders, market consolidation in East Asia will remain a key to acquiring distinct competitive edge, backed by favorable government initiatives for the expansion of healthcare sector.
Advancements in MRI Machines to Dictate Stakeholders’ Strategies
With a massive shift taking place in global healthcare sectors, R&D spending continues to represent high percentage of market stakeholders’ expenditure. While existing MRI pulse oximeters work efficiently with 5T MRI scanners, developing and introducing products that are compatible with both 5T and 7T Magnetic Resonance Imaging machines should be an important strategy for the manufacturers, considering a CE and FDA approval of 7T MRI scanner in 2017. Realizing an increased production of better alternatives, manufacturers will need to differentiate their products through innovations and incorporation of user-friendly sensors. Additionally, it is important for MRI pulse oximeters to efficiently operate without interference by the electromagnetic fields used for MRI procedures. Manufacturers are thus leveraging fiber optic technology to avoid conductive pathways formed by any metallic materials.
As the current MRI pulse oximeters are organ specific, requiring different sensors for different organs, manufacturers investing in the development of products that are not organ specific and provide accurate SpO2 readings equally in all sensor locations are likely to be rewarded in the long run.
Wireless device remains top selling category
Wired device to witness slow adoption
MRI pulse oximeters without monitor remain preferred
Demand for MRI pulse oximeters with monitor sluggish
Hospitals remain top end user
Diagnostic laboratories generating strong demand
How Growth will Unfold
