Global Tracheal Tube and Airway Products Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns in various countries across the globe have impacted the financial status of businesses across all sectors, including the private healthcare sector. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the entire supply chain of the healthcare industry, mainly due to strict lockdown in several regions. Private healthcare is one such sector that has been impacted significantly by the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the global tracheal tube and airway products market, owing to its possible association with the COVID-19 infection and increasing research and development for the tracheal tube and airway products market. For instance, according to an article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, a series of databases relevant to biotechnology and biomedicine, in November 2021, in the COVID 19 patients the use of tracheal tube and airway products was increased to cure and clear the obstruction in the throat and insufficient oxygen supply to the lungs. Timing of tracheostomy varied from 3 to less than 21 days, with over 90% of protocols recommending 14 days of intubation prior to tracheostomy. Most protocols advocated delaying tracheostomy until COVID-19 testing was negative. Timing of tracheostomy changes ranged from 5 to less than 30 days postoperatively, sometimes contingent on negative COVID-19 test results. Hence, demand of the tracheal tube and airway products increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.
