Anesthesia is a temporary loss of sensation that includes loss of pain or unconsciousness. It suppresses nervous system activity resulting in unconsciousness. Anesthesia machines are designed to provide continues supply of medical gases. These have an electronic sensor, which indicates when oxygen pressure has reached 38 psi. It is mounted on antistatic wheels for convenient transportation. It has unidirectional valves that suck in air which can be enriched with oxygen from a cylinder with the help of a set of bellows. Oxygen is automatically added to the fresh gas flow even if the anesthetist attempts to deliver 100% nitrous oxide. Ratio controller usually operates on the pneumatic principle. It interlocks between the vaporizers preventing inadvertent administration of more than one agent concurrently. An anesthesia cart holds an extra IV push meds anesthesia. Its pipeline gas hoses have non-interchangeable valve connectors, which prevents plugging into the wrong wall socket. Anesthesia machines are used to support the administration of anesthetic drug. With the help of this machine, anesthetists administer mild inhalation sedation with oxygen and nitrous oxide to keep patients in a conscious state.
Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, aging population, and technological advancement are likely to drive the anesthesia machines market. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce (2012), global population reached 7 billion, out of which 562 million were aged 65 and above. In 2015, the geriatric population rose by 55 million and the proportion of the population reached 8.5% of the total population. Increase in minimal invasive surgeries, rising health care expenditure, and medical tourism are other factors propelling the global anesthesia machines market. On the other hand, lack of skilled and trained anesthesiologists is expected to hamper market growth.
