Use of Ultrasonic Therapeutic Devices with Catheters Help Prevent COVID-19 Exposure

Critically ill patients are at a greater risk of exposure to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) infection. Hence, med-tech companies in the indwelling catheters market are increasing awareness about therapeutic devices that prevent the spread of COVID-19 in patients. For instance, NanoVibronix— a med-tech company specializing in therapeutic ultrasound technology is increasing awareness about its UroShield® Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Portable Ultra Sonic therapeutic device, which is used in combination with indwelling catheters and holds promising potentials in preventing exposure toward COVID-19. This is expected to drive the indwelling catheters market.

Providing utmost care to critically ill patients has become crucial during the ongoing pandemic. Ultrasonic therapeutic devices are being highly preferred by healthcare professionals to avoid issues such as pain and blockages for patients who rely on indwelling catheters. Since hospitals are being already compromised economically, patients in low acuity care settings are demanding ultrasonic therapeutic devices.

Evidence-based Healthcare Practices Improve Medical Outcomes in Care Facilities

The demand for high quality patient care is surging in the U.S. healthcare landscape. This is evident since the global indwelling catheters market is expected to climb a revenue growth from ~US$ 1 Bn in 2019 to over US$ 1.9 Bn by 2030. There is a growing need to bridge the knowledge gap between evidence and practice followed for indwelling catheters. In order to achieve this, healthcare professionals are educating nurses about evidence-based healthcare practices to improve medical outcomes of patients with bladder issues.

Evidence-based healthcare practices involve interacting with patients, which ultimately results in building the long-term nursing experience of caregivers in hospitals and other medical facilities. Companies in the indwelling catheters market are increasing efforts to obtain hands-on over primary research data, which emphasizes on catheter change frequency, types of indwelling catheters for specific patients, and catheter washouts.

Catheter Selection and Patient Assessment Crucial for Avoiding CAUTIs

An alarmingly high number of patients in the U.S. are suffering from bladder problems. It has been found that the number of community caseloads are surging with every passing day. This has triggered the demand for indwelling catheters in hospital settings. However, significant complications such as catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) and tissue damage are highly undesirable for patients and their caretakers. Hence, companies in the indwelling catheters market are creating awareness about catheter selection parameters to avoid complications in patients.

Healthcare professionals have become cautious about the use of materials, external coatings, and balloon sizes in indwelling catheters that help to improve patient quality of life. They are carrying out patient assessment to identify any allergy or sensitivity toward catheters.

Manufacturers in the indwelling catheters market are educating caretakers to monitor renal function and are recommending the smallest size gauge so that the catheter is easily concealed.

TUC Safety Valves in Indwelling Catheters Prevent Urethral Trauma in Patients

Urinary catheterization yields iatrogenic injuries in patients, which result in short and long-term complications involving substantial morbidity, financial, and medico-legal implications. Since healthcare systems want to be away from such expenditure burdens, manufacturers in the indwelling catheters market are designing devices with trans-urethral catheterization (TUC) safety valves to avoid risks of morbidity and mortality in patients.

Patients receiving an indwelling catheter tend to sustain urethral trauma during the insertion process. In order to avoid these complications, med-tech companies in the indwelling catheters market are introducing trans-urethral catheterization (TUC) safety valves in devices to prevent urethral trauma in patients. Such innovative devices are contributing toward a favorable CAGR of ~6% for the market during the assessment period. The TUC safety valve helps to prevent the inadvertent inflation of the foley catheter retention balloon. This aids in avoiding urethral trauma in patients.

Winning Imperative: Low Friction While Inserting Indwelling Catheters Driving Sales

Manufacturers in the indwelling catheters market are experimenting with different catheter materials such as latex, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and hydrogel-coated catheters, among others. They are increasing their production capabilities to manufacture antimicrobial-coated catheters that are clinically effective in containing bacterial activities. As such, latex is considered as the gold standard for manufacturing indwelling catheters. However, manufacturers need to adhere to the guidelines issued by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) to innovate in latex catheters.

PTFE-coated indwelling catheters are also being highly publicized in the indwelling catheters market. These catheters have an advantage over latex catheters, owing to their smoothness and design. Innovative designs in PTFE-coated catheters help to protect the urethra/suprapubic site from damage while insertion. Hydrogel-coated catheters are gaining popularity for reducing friction and trauma during insertion.

Adhering to NHS Guidelines for Urinary Catheter Care Boosts Credibility of Healthcare Facilities

The Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust is creating awareness about urinary catheter care guidelines in order to improve patient care. Companies in the indwelling catheters market are taking cues from the NHS and are becoming conscious about standard infection prevention precautions. As such, evidence-based healthcare practices have become a recurring trend in the realm of urinary catheter care. Healthcare professionals are creating increased stress over hand hygiene and other sanitization practices to avoid incidence of CAUTIs in patients.

Medical facilities are providing appropriate staff training and are following documented competency procedures in order to boost their credibility in the local and regional healthcare landscape. Companies in the indwelling catheters market are increasing efforts to conduct clinical trials of devices to ensure proper functioning and maintenance of catheters. Caregivers are focusing on the consent of patient to conduct trans-urethral catheterization procedures.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Urologists have had to reduce or halt their routine clinical practices to assist COVID-19 patients, which has led to lack of evidence pertaining to the care given to urological patients during the pandemic. Evidence-based clinical practices are being highly emphasized by manufacturers in the indwelling catheters market as well as by various healthcare institutions. However, urethral trauma and tissue damage are major drawbacks of indwelling catheters that have concerned caretakers. Hence, companies should experiment with different materials and coatings such as silver-alloy coated catheters, hydrogel-coated catheters, and antimicrobial-coated catheters to reduce friction and urethral trauma while inserting urinary catheter.
