Blood samples from infants can be obtained from either an indwelling catheter or a heel puncture. Puncturing a newborn's heel for blood collection is a crucial step in the process of detecting potentially fatal, congenital diseases. Heel incision devices are safe, gentle, and effective to collect blood from babies. Heel incision device provides a precise incision for adequate blood sampling with less re-sticking. Heel incision devices are available for newborn, preemie, micro-preemie, and toddler. North America dominated the global heel incision devices market in 2019. The trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Mandatory newborn screening under the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2007 across North America propels the demand for heel incision devices.
Mandatory Newborn Testing Policy Adopted in Several Countries to Drive Heel Incision Devices Market
Premature babies, especially those born very early, often have complicated medical issues. Typically, complications of prematurity vary; however, earlier the baby is born, the higher the risk of complications. Therefore, dozens of new tests are presently available, which can offer insights into the health condition of newborns. High birth rate of preterm babies leads to complications and even to death of babies within one month of birth, which is a global concern, especially in underdeveloped and developing countries of Africa and South Asia. Consequently, several countries, such as the U.S., Australia, Germany, and the U.K., have introduced numerous health policies under which newborn screening is mandatory, which, in turn, propels the heel incision devices market.
