According to the report, the global tissue banking market was valued at US$ 162.3 Mn in 2017 and is anticipated to reach US$ 2,903.3 Mn by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 12.0% from 2018 to 2026. Increasing demand for regenerative medicines, advancements in bio banking technology, increasing health care expenditure, and rising awareness are likely to fuel the global tissue banking market from 2018 to 2026.
As visual impairment and blindness emerge as critical public health issues, a number of healthcare professionals and ophthalmologists are opening up to discussions on these aspects. As the world battles these scenarios, the focus remains on vision quality improvement with minimally-invasive procedures, bringing precise surgical instruments into the spotlight. While a lot is said and done about the surgical instruments used in the field of ophthalmology, improving the efficacy of these instruments remains paramount for manufacturers. In case of surgical instruments such as ophthalmic knives, smooth penetration and accurate incision remains paramount requirements that need be to be addressed.
The global cell expansion market depicts a highly consolidated structure to exist in its vendor landscape, owing to the presence of a handful of players, says Transparency Market Research based on a recently published report. Leading players in the market are increasing the rate of investments, thereby cementing their position in the global cell expansion market. The companies are also carrying out extensive research-based activities to develop advanced cell expansion applications. In the next few years, most companies are expected to shift their focus to achieve product differentiation. Presence of a variety of services along with new players regularly making their foray in the market is expected to intensify the competition during the next few years.
Red blood cells are broken down in the reticuloendothelial system, primarily the spleen. The dead cells inside the spleen are converted to bilirubin upon removal of iron. This process accounts for about 80% of the bilirubin formed every day inside a human body. The bilirubin is transferred to liver in the form of indirect or unconjugated bilirubin. Conjugated bilirubin is excreted via the biliary system into the intestine, where it is metabolized by bacteria known collectively as stercobilinogen. The body produces bilirubin in the form of unconjugated and conjugated fractions. The bilirubin is elevated in hepatitis, cirrhosis, hemolytic disorders, several inherited enzyme deficiencies, and conditions causing hepatic obstruction. Rise in incidence of hepatitis in neonates, adults, and liver-related diseases increases the usage of bilirubin assay kits, which in turn drives demand of tests using bilirubin assay kits among the population. Moreover, new developments in analytical method and diagnostic technique approaches are paving the way for early diagnosis and treatment of liver diseases.
Positive end-expiratory pressure valves provide ventilation, wherein airway pressure is maintained above atmospheric pressure at the end of exhalation by means of mechanical impedance. The PEEP valve increases the volume of gas in the lungs at the end of expiration in order to decrease the shunting of blood through the lungs and improve gas exchange. PEEP valves are used along with ventilators for acute respiratory failure syndrome and other respiratory disease patients. The function of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) valves is to provide positive airway pressure to change the blood and fresh inspired gas in the alveoli and the blood of alveolar capillaries. However, new developments in medical device technology for ventilators and methods used to decrease ventilator-induced lung injury is also paving the way for treatment of respiratory disease and quick recovery.
Cryosurgery, also known as cryotherapy, is a medical procedure which uses extreme cold produced by liquid nitrogen (or other gases) to destroy abnormal tissues. Cotton tip applicators and spray devices are used to destroy external tumors, while cryoprobes are widely used to destroy internal tissues. The guidance of MRI or other imaging device is essential to monitor the condition of the tissues. After cryosurgery, the treated tissue thaws, is either absorbed by the body (for internal tumors) or forms scab (for external tumors).
Surgical visualization systems can be defined as devices which provide surgeons with better visualization of the surgical site. These systems include two movable arms and a viewing platform mounted on the distal end of the first moving arm. The camera is configured accordingly to provide a surgical microscopic view of the surgery site which can be viewed by the surgeon at the viewing platform. Additionally, surgical visualization systems include a control system having electronics configured to receive input from the surgeon to adjust the orientation of the camera. Endoscopes are the major products employed for visualization which aid in inspection, examination, diagnosis, and treatment of various gastrointestinal diseases, diseases associated with the bronchial tract, and other organs. It is a minimally invasive procedure enabling the visualization and diagnosis of problems such as cancer, ulceration, and other diseases.
Vitamin D is considered to be a group of fat-soluble secosteroids that aid in increasing the intestinal absorption of calcium, phosphate, and magnesium. The major vitamin D compounds in humans include vitamin D3 (known as cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (known as ergocalciferol). Vitamin D deficiency has been one of the common problems in the past few years owing to less exposure to sun, attributed to sedentary lifestyles. Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include muscle weakness and bone pain. Dietary vitamin D is administered to treat the deficiency. The recommended dosage, according to the Institute of Medicine, is 600 international units (IU) for age group 1 year to 70 years and 800 IU for adults aged over 70 years. Moreover, the safe upper limit of recommended dietary allowance of vitamin D is 4,000 IU.
The global ambulatory services market is anticipated to garner at a healthy pace during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the increase in number of chronic diseases and rise in number of geriatric population.
The global healthcare staffing market is likely to grow at a significant pace, thanks to rise in geriatric population across the globe.
