Emergency Medical Services (EMS) require specialized equipment to aid in the provision of emergency care. The rapid development of medical technology has transformed the international EMS systems with introduction of multifunctional compact monitoring systems. These equipment are making the task of monitoring patients manageable in an uncontrolled environment of pre-hospital settings.
Increasing geriatric population prone to various medical emergencies such as cardiac arrest, respiratory disorders, and other medical urgency and rising incidences of natural calamities require advanced emergency medical care. According to American Heart Association 2016 report, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for around 17.3 million deaths annually and is expected to reach over 23.6 million by 2030.
According to GRID-Arendal, an official United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) 2018, with the growing population and infrastructures, the world’s exposure to natural hazards is increasing inevitably. Therefore, all these factors are collectively rising the demand for emergency medical services eventually driving the emergency medical equipment market revenue.
Despite the increasing demand, the emergency medical services varies drastically from developed to developing countries.
For instance, according to the Journal of Emergency Medical Services, in 2019, India will host the Asian Conference on Emergency Medicine, which is expected to be attended by major industry players, and India is a good entry point for the entire subcontinent.
