Transcutaneous monitor, commonly, is a non-invasive monitoring system which is continuously used to monitor the oxygenation and ventilation. These transcutaneous monitoring systems comprise of a sensor that detects and estimates the amount of blood gases diffused through the skin. Currently, transcutaneous monitoring is considered as the most trending tool that has been used to monitor oxygenation status and ventilation status by non-invasive means. These monitoring systems provide real-time information and enables a physician to take an instant action for patient safety, thereby generating a strong hold in transcutaneous monitors market. Any unusual changes in oxygen uptake and carbon dioxide washout is reported by these transcutaneous monitoring systems in terms of partial pressure of transcutaneous oxygen (tcpO2) and partial pressure of transcutaneous carbon dioxide (tcpCO2) respectively. Usually, the skin-surface partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) and carbon dioxide (PCO2) is measured by transcutaneous monitors. Transcutaneous monitors are small and compact and are easy portable devices. They are capable to support patient monitoring during transport as they have in-built battery on the account of which they can be used anywhere. Transcutaneous monitors have installed integrated data memory that enables a user to download patient’s measurement of oxygen uptake and carbon dioxide washout on a computer system. Transcutaneous monitors are indicated for the patients who requires continuous monitoring of the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels via non-invasive means. These monitors find intensive applications in wound care, prolonged laparoscopic surgery, Apnea testing, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and evaluation of tissue perfusion which drives the growth for transcutaneous monitors market. Generally, transcutaneous monitors are indicated for the patients who have poor skin integrity.
A transcutaneous oxygen index is largely used as a marker for early detection of hypoperfusion and mortality. The transcutaneous oxygen monitor on whole is comprised of a platinum and silver electrodes. These electrodes are covered with hydrophobic oxygen-permeable membrane, and comprises chamber wherein phosphate buffer and potassium chloride are present. Hyperfusion is induced in the patient skin under transcutaneous monitoring system by elevating the temperature of skin at sensor site. The sensor site where transcutaneous oxygen sensor is placed is heated till it reaches a temperature of 44°C. In order to avoid any tissue damage, the sensor site to measure oxygen level is changed after regular intervals of time. The electrodes used in transcutaneous oxygen sensor should be calibrated as per manufacturer’s protocol in almost eight hours. The growing demand for transcutaneous monitoring systems, especially in neonatal care and adults & pediatric care is projecting the growth of transcutaneous monitors market. It continuously monitors the oxygenation status in neonatal intensive care units and thus prevents severe complications by monitoring abrupt changes in oxygenation and ventilation levels. Transcutaneous monitoring system finds various applications in sleep diagnostics, diabetes, respiratory care, wound healing, and thus propels transcutaneous monitors market growth. Currently, wound healing monitors and baby monitors are the leading product type segments in transcutaneous monitors market. Also, transcutaneous monitors market is registering immense growth owing to their increased application in neonatal intensive care, measurement of amputation level, and clinical diagnostics. Major end users for transcutaneous monitors market involves hospitals & clinics, diagnostic centers, ambulatory surgical centers, neonatal intensive care units and others.
