Capnography device is a monitoring device used to measure the concentration of carbon dioxide in respiratory gas. It helps to monitor the real-time status of ventilation of a patient. Moreover, it provides data about CO2 production, alveolar ventilation, respiratory patterns pulmonary perfusion, and elimination of CO2 from the anesthesia circuit and ventilator. The global capnography device market is growing at a significant rate, due to the development of portable/point-of-care capnography devices, and the mounting number of surgeries.
Different products such as capnometers and capnography accessories contributed to the capnography device market size. The market has witnessed high demand for capnography accessories due to escalating adoption of capnography device in surgeries, and mounting number serious and complicated surgical procedures and post-operative monitoring, and obtainability of medical compensation.
