Patient Warming Devices Market, By Product Type (Surface Warming System, Intravascular Warming System, Patient Warming Accessories), By Application (Acute Care, Perioperative Care, New Born Care, Others), By End User (Hospitals, Clinics, Nursing Facilities, Others) - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026

Patient warming devices are used by healthcare professionals during surgeries and for intra-hospital patient transfer. Severely wounded patients may suffer or die from hypothermia and these patient warming devices have proven to be very effective in such cases. Physiological temperature often drops down during major operations such as cardiovascular and others, where rewarming becomes important so as to avoid any complications during the procedure. Patient warming devices can help to achieve normothermia by preventing any sudden body heat loss, leading to faster recovery.

Patient warming devices include catheters, temperature monitors, and cooling jackets. Hot intravenous fluid is introduced via catheter in the patient’s system, while monitoring the temperature between 50o C and 100o C, avoiding any tissue damage. To avoid any significant entry site and endothelial damage due to hot fluid, the catheter is surrounded by a cooling jacket, which carries unheated fluid between the gaps. Patient warming devices can substantially decrease chances of postoperative wound infection and myocardial infarctions, mortality rates, and ICU time, along with hospital stay. These factors are accelerating growth of the patient warming devices market.

Rising number of surgical procedures is expected to boost the market growth

Anesthesia in surgery procedures causes a perioperative temperature drop in patients and is the main cause of inadvertent perioperative hypothermia (IPH), which requires instant management. According to American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), successful surgery outcomes can be assured with the help of extensive perioperative temperature management within the normothermic range. Furthermore, ASA states that around 50% of the U.S. surgical patients suffer from IPH, which can be reduced by using patient warming devices, in turn, fueling growth of the patient warming devices market.

Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, primarily cardiovascular and cancer conditions, require patients to undergo surgeries in critical cases. According to World Health organization (WHO), around 300 million surgeries were performed in 2012, the number for which has exponentially increased over the recent past, in turn, boosting growth of the patient warming devices market.

Patient Warming Devices Market Taxonomy

The global patient warming devices market is segmented on the basis of product type, application, end user, and geography

On the basis of product type, the global patient warming devices market is segmented into:

  • Surface Warming System
  • Intravascular Warming System
  • Patient Warming Accessories

On the basis of application, the global patient warming devices market is segmented into:
