Reportlinker Adds Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzers – Global Market Trends

December 8, 2009

NEW YORK, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzers – Global Market Trends

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164354/Blood-Gas-and-Electrolyte-Analyzers—Global-Market-Trends.html

The rapidly aging world population is leading to a rise in the number of patients receiving critical care in intensive care units, emergency departments, and operation rooms. This demographics induced trend is translating into increased market opportunities for blood gas testing, given its indispensability in evaluating pulmonary and respiratory functioning, which are both essential in determining follow-up treatment strategies.

Another distinct trend is the emergence of blood gas analyzers from beyond just central laboratory applications to respiratory therapy and point-of-care diagnostic applications. This is resulting in a shift in demand, away from traditional blood gas testing equipments and towards point-of care testing devices for use in near-patient sites. Technology continues to remain the cornerstone for the success in this market. Technology effervesce in this market manifests itself in the form of device miniaturization and sophistication, which together are leading to the development of sleek, and compact, handheld blood gas analyzers. Expanded test menus are additionally integrating the functionalities of both blood gas and electrolyte analysis to offer multiple testing of electrolytes, blood urea nitrogen, and creatinine, among others, from a single sample.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzers: Global Market Trends” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
