Esophageal stethoscope is a device which has a thin elastic tube attached to a regular stethoscope mostly by a small plastic adaptor and is used for evaluating and monitoring heart sound or respiratory sound during surgeries.  Esophageal stethoscopes are harmless to patients and can be easily introduced in the body of patients.

  • With the help of esophageal stethoscope the displacement of the endotracheal tube, a tube used to provide oxygen to the lungs, can be rapidly detected of the patient under observation
  • Esophageal stethoscopes are combined with temperature sensors that makes surgeon easy to monitor temperature of a patient during surgeries.
  • Esophageal stethoscopes are exact and dependable products which are suitable for use in multiple clinical locations, including the operating room, emergency department, intensive care areas, post anesthesia care units, and the general care floor.
  • Esophageal stethoscope offers features such as
  • The long lead wire keeps the connector away from the surgical area of the patient
  • The temperature probe rapidly and accurately reflects changes in core body temperature during surgeries

Global Esophageal Stethoscope Market - Impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to hamper growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market, owing to disruption in supply of pharmaceuticals materials due to quarantine and lack of labor and raw materials. As the connection between regional warehouses is not smooth, the transportation of raw materials between regions cannot be carried out successfully. Therefore, shortage of raw materials has affected the supply chain of the global esophageal stethoscope market.

Decline in surgeries such as cardiac surgeries during COVID-19 pandemic is expected to hamper growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market, For instance, according to an article published In March, 2020 by National Center of Biotechnology Information, many surgical procedures were canceled or postponed to make space in hospitals for COVID-19 patients during the COVID – 19 pandemic. During COVID-19 pandemic preference were given to patients suffering from coronavirus disease. This is expected to hamper growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market.

Global esophageal stethoscope market is estimated to be valued at US$ 21.25 Mn in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.1% over the forecast period (2022-2030)

Increasing research and development activities by researchers for the development in esophageal stethoscope is expected to drive the growth of global esophageal stethoscope market, over the forecast period.

Research and development activities is projected to increase the production of new esophageal stethoscope, which is expected to drive the global esophageal stethoscope market growth. For instance, according to an article published in National Center for Biotechnology Information on March 7, 2020, a researcher has developed a wireless electronic esophageal stethoscope aimed for continued listening of heart and lung sounds in anesthetized patients during operation. The device consists of a transmitter which amplifies and transmits the developed sound signals via a frequency modulation transmitter and receiver demodulates, amplifies, and delivers the received signal to a headphone to be heard by the anesthesiologist.

Global Esophageal Stethoscope Market – Restraints

Complications in the use of Esophageal Stethoscope are expected to hamper the global esophageal stethoscope market growth. For instance, according to an article published by Anaesth Pain & Intensive care, an international journal, in December, 2019, by esophageal stethoscope heart and breath sounds can be constantly monitored and any obstruction of endotracheal tube (ETT) can be readily detected. But, the detection of one lung ventilation due to incidental endobronchial ETT placement during surgical positioning and tissue handling may be difficult. Esophageal stethoscope placement also shows complications such as incidental tracheal and bronchial insertion causing hypoxia, hoarseness, oropharyngeal trauma or bleeding.

Global Esophageal Stethoscope Market – Regional Analysis

On the basis of region, the global esophageal stethoscope market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

Among regions, North America esophageal stethoscope market is expected to hold a dominant position during the forecast period, owing to increasing prevalence of eye disorders. For instance, according to data updated on June 9, 2020 by Center for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 12 million people of 40 years and above in the U.S. have vision impairment. For the eye surgery, to monitor the heart or breathe sound esophageal stethoscope is used by the anesthesiologist during surgery, hence increase prevalence in eye disorders is expected to drive market of esophageal stethoscope in North America.

Furthermore, Europe is also estimated to witness significant growth in the global esophageal stethoscope market, owing to increasing prevalence of doctors in the country. For instance, according to Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Health Statistics 2020, between 2008 and 2018, the number of doctors has increased in all European countries, the number increased from 3.3 doctors per 1000 population in 2008 to 3.8 in 2018. The increase in doctors such as surgeons, dermatologists, etc. is expected to increase the use of esophageal stethoscope for different operating procedures.

Esophageal stethoscope is used to detect cardiac problem, wheezing, airway obstacle, larynugospasm, decline in blood pressure, etc. Esophageal stethoscopes, are mostly joined with a temperature probe and are supplanted with precordial stethoscopes as cardiothoracic monitors. These probes are preferably sited in a retrocardiac manner by passing the probes down the esophagus till the volume of the auscultated heart sounds is maximized.

Moreover, esophageal stethoscope is used to listen to the tone of pulse oximeter, heart tones and breath sounds that gives immediate and continuous feedback about pulse oximeter, heart rate and rhythm and an impression of the changes in intensity of heart sounds, which are useful in diagnosing arrhythmias, hypovolemia, anesthetic overdose, and airway obstruction. Esophageal stethoscope is used to monitor venous air embolism along with devices such as precordial doppler, a right-heart catheter, capnography, pulse oximetry, etc.

Market Dynamics

Diagnosis of different types of cardiac disease such as cardiac arrhythmias is expected to drive growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market, over the forecast period. For instance, according to data published in the book “A Practice of Anesthesia in Infants and Children, 6th Edition” in 2019,a esophageal stethoscope is used to detect cardiac arrhythmias in patients. Esophageal stethoscope is used to record heart and lung sound of the patients.

Guidelines from U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for marketing of the class I, II and III medical device, are expected to drive growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market, over the forecast period. For instance, according to data updated on March 29, 2022 by the U.S. FDA esophageal stethoscope is classified into Class II Diagnostic. FDA guidelines stated that Premarket Approval Application (PMA) is not required for marketing of medical device coming under class I, II, and III projected for human use, only need to submit a 510(k) to FDA. For marketing of class II device a market player should receive an order in the form of letter from the Food and Drug Administration which says that the device to be substantially equivalent and the new device is as safe and effective as the legally marketed device and states that the device can be marketed in the U.S
