Cannula is a hollow tube with a retractable inner core injected into a body cavity to draw fluid, assist breathing, or to introduce medication. The term intubation is used to refer to the placement of a tube into a patient’s body. Intubation is also known as tracheal incubation. Intubation cannulae are medical devices that assist in maintaining proper respiration cycle for patients who are unable to breathe on their own. Intubation cannulae are connected to a ventilator system or respirator or breathing machine to supply proper air pressure into the patient’s lungs. Intubation is generally a necessity in patients who are seriously ill, injured, or are under effect of anesthesia during surgery. An intubation cannula is gently pushed into a patient’s trachea to maintain an open air passage and positive respiratory pressure in the lungs or to administer certain drugs. Generally, intubation cannulae are made of soft, flexible, sterile PVC or silicon, with smooth surface to prevent any injury or trauma during insertion.
Report Overview @
The global intubation cannulae market is anticipated to witness strong growth during the forecast period due to increase in usage in emergency conditions significantly reducing overall procedure time and quicker recovery. With the recent advancement in technology, intubation cannulae are now available with various features such as pressure ports to monitor pressure, suction ports, and X-ray detection marks. The global intubation cannulae market is also driven by the increase in incidence and prevalence rates of various chronic diseases and rise in rate of trauma and accident cases across the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 395,000 coronary artery bypass graft surgeries were performed in 2013 in the U.S. alone. Increase in the geriatric population vulnerable to chronic illnesses propels demand for surgical procedures globally, which in turn is likely to drive the intubation cannulae market. However, the intubation cannulae market is expected to face some restraints during the forecast period. Lack of skilled professionals in the developing countries and unstable reimbursement regulations are likely to hamper the growth of the intubation cannulae market in developing countries.
