Fetal and Neonatal Care Equipment Market Strives to Save Preterm BirthsFebruary 07, 2014
February 7, 2014
The Fetal (Labor & Delivery) and Neonatal Care Equipment Market report for 2011-2016 examined the status of fetal and neonatal care services and products in relation to preterm birth. The global report looked into trend analysis and revenue forecasting of the preterm infant care equipment market across 18 countries.
Premature birth or preterm birth is the delivery of a baby prior to its 37 week or 259 days of gestational age. Premature babies experience difficulty maintaining their body temperature, breastfeeding and breathing. The condition can be caused by different factors such as deficient prenatal care, inaccurate labor care, fertility induction and lifestyle preferences. According to the report, the occurrence of preterm birth incidents is approximately 9.6%.
The investment in preterm care equipment including ventilators, intravenous lines, incubators, apnea and cardiopulmonary monitors has been shown to greatly decrease preterm infant fatality rates. These types of equipment provide respiratory, nutritional and temperature support for preterm babies while at the same time offering disease diagnosis and constant monitoring. The National Institute of Health (NIH) explains that a significant survival rate for preterm births is due to increased adoption of fetal and neonatal equipment.
Preterm infants need annual medical care and assistance to survive. Babies who do not receive the extreme care and attention required are faced with multiple health complications that include improper breathing, inconsistent body temperature, severe bleeding and general infections.
Well-serviced, safe and efficient preterm equipment are essential for the survival of premature babies. Browse through AIV’s comprehensive line of fetal monitoring equipment accessories here: http://www.aiv-inc.com/fetal-monitor-transducers.html.
