Digital innovations are transforming medicine, with hemodynamic monitoring being no exception. A decade down the line, a world can be envisioned where clinicians will be learning hemodynamics with serious games and stimulators, monitoring patients with implantable or wearable sensors and post-discharge will be using medical devices that is capable of communicating and integrating the biological, physiologic, clinic, and historical information necessary for predicting adverse events, proposing a rationale therapy, and ensuring the same is delivered with precision. Considerable financial and intellectual investments are presently made for ensuring these new products and ideas soon turn into reality.
Trend Towards Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitoring Systems
The downside with invasive hemodynamic monitoring is along with causing discomfort to patients undergoing a pulmonary artery catheter inserted to monitor the heart; the cost associated with it is compounded via the risks of complications. Technological advancements, however, are transforming the clinical landscapes both in the intensive care unit and emergency department from dependence on invasive methods to an increased usage of monitoring devices that are non-invasive. With less invasive hemodynamic monitoring technologies, inserting the catheter can be completed outside the ICU by a nurse, thereby needing less time and saving money. Various factors are propelling the Hemodynamic Monitoring Systems Market share, such as increasing innovation, increasing research and development activities, rapid diagnosis as well as fast intervention through doctors, and proper and timely treatment at an early phase, among others. On the contrary, the presence of several cost-effective invasive lines of monitoring and diagnostic devices may have a negative impact on the Hemodynamic Monitoring Systems Market size. Capstesia is a truly innovative smartphone application and one of the latest Hemodynamic Monitoring Systems Market trends that can help in measuring the cardiac index, pulse pressure change, and cardiac output. This application can also be used in monitoring and patient care both in intensive care units and in the operating room.
Two Main Techniques
Recent advancement in blood pressure monitoring is the constant improvement in the noninvasive blood pressure measurement. Such devices help in real-time blood pressure measurement and patient assessment. There are two methods used to measure blood pressure- volume clamp method and applanation tonometry.
Applanation Tonometry- This method allows constant measurement of carbon dioxide through a transducer that is strapped to the artery via a bone underneath. Then the artery is flattened, which makes the transmural pressure zero, thereby helping to obtain the arterial pulse wave. This enables detailed measurement both of the diastolic and systolic arterial pressures as well as the central vascular pressure assessment. The effectiveness of this method has been shown during the brachial artery blood pressure measurement to manage hypertension, measure radial artery pressure for optimum obstructive sleep apnea management, measure pulse pressure, identity coronary artery disease along with its severity, and identify people at the risk of diastolic dysfunction. The latest line of applanation tonometry devices offers increasingly better measurements compared to earlier models. With more awareness and widespread usage of such devices, its utilization can result in better outcomes with regards to managing chronic conditions, especially high blood pressure and heart failure.
VC Method- This is a non-invasive method to measure blood pressure. The VC method uses an inflatable cuff that automatically adjusts for measuring the waveform of the arterial blood pressure. The cuff has a light detector and an infrared photodiode, which helps in measuring the finger artery’s diameter. It absorbs infrared through the finger, which is used for measuring the arterial volume, thus the pressure. The pressure of the cuff rapidly adjusts for clamping the arterial volume all through the pulse for measuring the pulse contour and the waveform pressure. The pressure in the cuff is adjusted constantly at the time of the cardiac cycle for keeping the volume constant in the finger, and over time such adjustments are used for analyzing the pulse wave and creating the blood pressure waveform. Hence, different pathological changes impact the arterial resistance and compliance, thus the waveform.
The various technological advancements in the Hemodynamic Monitoring Systems Market over the years are predominantly driving its growth and is likely to maintain the same in the years to come.
