Neuro critical care is an emerging field that combines the specialties that link neurology, neurosurgery, and critical care. Just as the field has evolved from primary focus on post-operative care to elective neurosurgical patients, the focus towards the resuscitation of neurological emergency cases such as traumatic brain injury or subarachnoid hemorrhage, which remain a clinical challenge. The neuro critical care market is strongly driven by the increasing focus, awareness, and prevalence of neurological impediments such as ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, aneurysm, and other neurological disorders. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 1.7 million persons sustain a traumatic brain injury every year, and around 120,000 have long-standing and substantial loss of function.
There are a number of equipment used for the diagnosis and monitoring of neurological injuries and disorders. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) are some of the diagnostic equipment used in neuro critical care centers. A CT scan is generally used to locate or determine the location of the brain injury, while an MRI is used for further in-depth brain imaging for better assessment and diagnosis. Most equipment used in neuro critical care centers consist of life support and emergency devices, which includes monitoring systems such as CNS monitors, CNS video cameras, CNS readers, ventilators, and other accessories such as infusion pumps and catheters.
Advanced monitoring techniques used in neuro critical care allows the early identification of neurological injuries before permanent brain damage occurs. Neuro critical care also offers patients with specialized therapeutic and management options to achieve favorable outcomes. In North America, there are around 25 academic neuro critical care centers that cater to the needs of neurological patients.
Neuro Critical Care Market: Drivers and Restraints
The rising incidences of stroke and head trauma will boost the growth of the market. Increasing advances in neurosurgical techniques owing to the rising need for neuro critical care is expected to be a major factor driving the growth of the neuro critical care market over the forecast period. The rise in the incidences of brain tumors is another strong driving force in the industry, to provide more neuro critical care centers, thereby driving the growth of the neuro critical care market. Increasing advancements in technology on the neurosurgical front owing to the rising need of neuro critical care is expected to boost its market growth considerably during the forecast period. However, insufficient staff and need for specially trained professionals hinder the growth of the market substantially. The high cost involved in the establishment of a neuro critical care unit and the increased cost of in-patient in a neuro critical care center may hinder the growth of the neuro critical care market over the forecast period.
