Non-invasive Wearable Sensors to Expand Clinical Scope of Respiratory Monitoring Devices

A range of sensors are integrated with respiratory monitoring devices, notably polysomnography, capnographs, and pulse oximeters, help in monitoring sleep patterns and in managing chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs), mainly through respiration rate (RR).

Adoption of machine learning in such devices help in automated diagnosis of sleep-related events and respiratory conditions.

The popularity of non-invasive methods has helped the pulse oximeters segment climb to valuation of ~US$ 3.4 Bn by 2027.

The global respiratory monitoring devices market is expected to garner ~6% CAGR during 2019 to 2027.

Research analysts at TMR assert that manufacturers in the respiratory monitoring devices market should focus on improving the effectiveness, convenience, and reliability of sensors in spirometry and capnometry. In particular, focus on innovation on flow and pressure sensors to improve management of respiratory diseases in all clinical settings.
