Evidence regarding technologies for monitoring neuromuscular transmission (NMT) block in various clinical areas has made notable advances. The neuromuscular transmission (NMT) monitor market has been seen new avenues from the adoption of the quantitative monitoring techniques. They have found increase in applications in mechanical ventilation and general anesthesia.
Routine clinical use of NMT monitors has been found to have critical importance in reducing the incidence of residual paralysis in patients, mainly by safely time extubation. A number of neuromuscular blocking agents are usually used to cease NMT. An array of technologies equipped with sensors find use in NMT monitor market in assessing the status of the neuromuscular blockade with precision. Technologies continue to make advances in relation to ease of use and precision to make NMT monitors clinically useful in both adults and pediatrics.
A number of NMT modules have emerged and the system chiefly comprises nerve stimulator, stimulating electrodes and the recording device. A proper module enables the clinician to generate proper current needed for the supramaximal stimulus, where Train-of-four (TOF) has gained popularity.

Need for advances in technologies for monitoring anesthesia progress in critical care has spurred the prospects in the NMT monitor market. Ensuring adequate anesthesia is critical for the success of surgery and post-surgery recovery. The cost of the neuromuscular transmission monitors may have become a demand dampener for manufacturers targeting cost-sensitive markets. Growing number of critical care surgeries in developing economies is bolstering the prospects in the NMT monitor market. Need for nerve location for regionally blocking has also boosted the demand.
A growing number of manufacturers in the NMT monitor market lean on continual technological and design advances in monitors. They are keen on developing ergonomic monitors and those that offer ease of monitoring for clinicians. Some top players are keen on adopting novel sensors, an example being the use of 3D hand sensor. Several manufacturers offer prolonged battery capacity at relatively low cost, and equipment that doesn’t need expensive disposables. Automatic modes of simulation is one of the key features of easy functionality of newly launched products in the NMT monitor market.
In coming years, automatic and hands free modes and integrated NMT measurement in NMT monitor will take center stage for critical care, stimulating new entrants to recalibrate their research of directions.
Some of the key medical equipment manufacturers finding new avenues in the NMT monitor market are IDMED, Organon Laboratories Limited, RGB Medical Devices, CAREstream Medical, Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, and GE Healthcare.
On the regional front, several European nations and North America have witnessed substantial opportunities. The focus of healthcare systems in ensuring the safety of patients in critical care and surgeries has spurred the demand for NMT monitors. The adoption of anesthesia monitoring technologies for fast patient throughput is key to technological advances in these regional markets.
Rising adoption of such monitoring modules in emerging economies in Asia Pacific has spurred new revenue prospects in the regional market. The growth avenue has been bolstered by the adoption of advanced anesthetic agents. Rise in research funding in China and Japan is propelling growth.
