Medical gas analyzers including devices such as concentrators, vacuum systems, monitoring systems, and regulators are a few of devices that are finding increasing applications in the healthcare facilities such as hospitals and clinics. They are used to analyze gas mixtures that are commonly used in healthcare procedures such as oxygen, nitrous oxide, and carbon dioxide to check for the accurate concentrations of the mixture ingredients.

Technological advancements in the field, and new products being released in the market, in addition to the growing awareness about the effect of medical gases on patient safety, are crucial influencers that are propelling the demand for gas analyzers in the medical and healthcare industries.

 Pollution and Smoking Habits Drive the Application of Medical Gas Analyzers

 In the past few years, cardiovascular diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorders have shown a significant rise owing to a larger number of geriatrics, growing air pollution in extremely populations, and poor lifestyle choices such as heavy smoking, which creates a requirement for advanced medical gas analyzers such as medical vacuum pump systems.

Moreover, modernization in healthcare infrastructure, favorable insurance and reimbursement policies, and rapid evolution of new technologies are key trends that are driving the production and use of medical gas analyzers. Also, the growing trend of medical tourism to developing countries such as India and China are also boosting the demand for these devices in these regions.

Technological Innovations Drive the Development of New Products

Major medical gas analyzer manufacturers are increasingly focusing towards innovations to improve on patient care and monitoring functionalities to stay relevant as per the evolving need of the healthcare and medical industries, and to gain an edge over competitors.

For example, the Wishard Memorial Hospital, based in the U.S. makes use of a NASA developed Remote monitoring system that is used to monitor and send alerts about the use of anesthetic gases, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen concentration, to ensure that patients who are going through a surgical procedure have the right environment for breathing. The gas analyzer that is integrated to the system is capable of analyzing and monitoring the intake and exhalation of up to 16 patients at the same time, while giving alarms at adverse irregularities.

U.S. based Meeco has developed a range of medical gas analyzers that specialize in moisture analysis for industries such as hospitals, aviation, and gas supply, with online monitoring functionality, compactness for portability and durability, and rechargeable battery pack, with the aim of enabling on-field gas analysis.

Enmet LLC has also revealed a range of compressed airline and respiratory air analyzers and monitors that are capable of continuous in-line carbon monoxide monitoring, and a three stage air filtration system, for the real time analysis of up to four gases simultaneously, while also being compliant with OSHA standards.

OPTIMedical has introduced a blood gas and electrolyte analyzer that makes use of a proprietary optical fluorescence technology, which eliminates the need for contact points or electrodes that significantly reduces the need for maintenance procedures.

Strategic Expansion and Acquisitions Gain Importance 

Praxair Inc. and Linde Group, two of the world’s leaders in medical gas analyzer production are in the process of being merged, which is expected to improve on shared technologies and market presence. This process has gained the approval of the Chinese Antitrust Authority, which opens new markets for operations of the merged entity.

This deal is to be followed by the acquisition of Linde Group’s gas business assets by Messer Group GmbH and CVC Capital partners to create a global power based in North and South America for industrial and medical gases.
