Fetal Monitoring Market Emerging Trends,Forecasts 2018-2026 And Major Key Companies

Fetal monitoring devices are used to monitor the heart rate and movement of the fetus and maternal contractions. In medical terms, fetal monitoring is imperative to constantly monitor health of the unborn baby and ensure a safe birth. Fetal monitoring measures the heart rate of the baby. Healthcare providers perform fetal monitoring during late pregnancy and labor, as that process is crucial for keeping the mother and the child safe and healthy. These are also used to monitor chronic mental retardation, hypothermia, lung diseases, neonatal diseases, vision & hearing problems, and jaundice.

Fetal monitoring is usually done using handheld doppler device or an electronic fetal monitor. Fetal monitoring is necessary to avoid complications during labor or if patient gets an epidural or if oxytocin is required to induce or augment labor. Moreover there are two ways to perform fetal monitoring namely, external and internal. Fetal monitoring is especially helpful if the patient is expected to have a high-risk pregnancy, especially women suffering from high blood pressure or diabetes.

Increase in birth rate fuels the growth of fetal monitoring market

The boost in fetal monitoring market is due to increased rate of birth and pre-term births. Various government and nongovernment organizations are actively taking initiatives to provide better maternal and fetal care. However, rise in number of problems during pregnancy due to high-blood pressure, diabetes, pre-term labor medicine affect the fetus. So, fetal monitoring device are used routinely by gynecology and obstetrics interventions to examine fetal health during labor and delivery.

Furthermore, advancement in technology such as wireless or real time analysis also expands the market of fetal monitoring devices. The demand of fetal monitoring device is also increased significantly in past few years to reduce intrapartum stillbirths. According to WHO, annually 15 million babies are born pre-term which leads to death. Pre-term babies live only till approx. 5 years of age which is also responsible for nearly 1 million deaths in 2015.

Regional growth engines for fetal monitoring market

Asia Pacific is an emerging region for fetal monitoring market, as healthcare awareness is on the rise in the region and the region is the most populous. However, according to stats mention in World Population Prospects: 2015 Revision, the total fertility was pegged at 2.5 children per woman globally. However, there is wide regional difference across the globe that is further expected to offer irregular scenario over the forecast period in fetal monitoring industry.

Major acquisitions to support growth of fetal monitoring market

Rise in support from government for enhanced maternal facilities such as subsidies given by government to expand care in rural area to private not-for-profit organization, in countries like Uganda as they have poor healthcare facilities. Whereas, the Government of the Philippines has also placed health and maternal health high on its political agenda of reform.

Moreover, rising investment of company for development of new features for fetal monitoring devices expects to increase the working efficiency of company and broadens its product portfolio.

Reading progress update: I've read 47 out of 592 pages.
Die Menschheit hat den Verstand verloren: Tageb├╝cher 1939-1945 - Astrid Lindgren,Angelika Kutsch,Gabriele Haefs

Sound familiar?

"1940

9 FEBRUARY. What a world, what an existence! Reading the papers is a depressing pastime. Bombs and machine guns hounding women and children in Finland, the oceans full of mines and submarines, neutral sailors dying, or at best being rescued in the nick of time after days and nights of privation on some wretched raft, the behind-the-scenes tragedy of the Polish population (nobody’s supposed to know what’s happening, but some things get into the papers anyway), special sections on trams for “the German master race,” the Poles not allowed out after 8 in the evening, and so on. The Germans talk about their “harsh but just treatment” of the Poles -- so then we know. What hatred it will generate! In the end the world will be so full of hate that it chokes us."

And that's just for starters -- we haven't even gotten to the concentration camps yet, though there has already been much suffering; chiefly in Finland and Poland.

 

I'm reading the book in German; source of the English excerpt quoted above HERE.  Highly recommended, both the book as a whole and (as a taster) the verbatim excerpts provided on HistoryNet and in the Telegraph review.  Lindgren was an astute observer and analyst; she did not miss a single important event and development, and she uncannily distills them down to their essential importance.  E.g., here's the beginning of her final entry, on New Year's Eve 1945 (which I haven't gotten to yet, of course, but which you'll see if you read the excerpts on HistoryNet or in the Telegraph review, and which is referenced verbatim in the introduction of this book -- at least in the German version):

"Nineteen forty-five brought two remarkable things. Peace after the Second World War and the atom bomb. I wonder what the future will have to say about the atom bomb, and whether it will mark a whole new era in human existence, or not. Peace doesn't offer much hope of sanctuary, overshadowed as it is by the atom bomb."*

Almost 50 years of post-WWII world history, acutely foretold in three concise sentences.  What a remarkable woman.

The Bit Dance-Tilmer Wright Jr.

     I very much enjoyed this very near future speculative fiction. The book centres on a family drama, with a work obsessed and emotionally distant father, two teenage children that he generally fails to engage with, and a mum doing her best to hold diverging lives together. Contemporary drama is very much the emotional driver of this work. The other key elements revolve around a dangerous terrorist unit of anti-capitalists and robotic toys that communicate with each other rather too well, when their software is enhanced with a sort of bee hive logic-based application. Perhaps surprisingly, the diverse elements of the story bond together very well.

     The book is well written, adequately edited and paced towards a suspenseful climax. In other words, Wright has produced a rewarding entertainment. As far as my very thin understanding of information technology goes, the artificial intelligence elements are plausible. I am accepting of the scientific understanding that sentience developed naturally through animal evolution. So perhaps that is also a realistic, and possibly even inevitable, ‘evolution’ in computer logic. Certainly, that is the basis of a massive modern outpouring of science fiction and philosophical thought. ‘We think, therefore we are’.

     I have no hesitation in giving this book five stars on those media streams that demand such crude stamp collecting. I greatly enjoyed the development of all of the main characters, including Sherlock, who blossoms late in this worth reading adventure.

RoboDocs- Dr. T 'Gus' Gustafson

What an interesting read, a novel written as imaginary documentary on a near future doctor’s career, following his path from childhood through medical school and training to eventual mixed fortunes as a robotically enhanced family practitioner. There is a depth of humanistic sentimental content, however it is future technology, not human behaviour that drives this book. The author is a retired medic who speculates the future of his profession. Gustafson brings a huge amount of personal experience of medicine and its politics to this fascinating story. His real knowledge gives real bite, a profound credibility and layered plausibility. His future ‘expectation’ is so well constructed that it is difficult at times to keep touch with the fact that we are reading of a future and not a ‘true’ life history. All the medical politics, economic constraints and technologies are already seen today in their infancy, such that very little of the science fiction seems implausible, fantastical, in 2018.

The writing is straight forward and accurate, while the plot is simple in design and yet rich with interesting detail. One might even say the book is predictable, but no less enjoyable for that. This fiction is written with almost a scientific efficiency, like a well written industrial report, with just enough of a veneer of character story to give a richness, a feeling of personal buy-in, of voyeuristic enjoyment, to the reading. I recommend this book to all who wonder about the future of medicine, and where it is taking both our medical practitioners and us all as hopeful patients. This is a fiction brim full of interest, with a backstory centred around the fears and ambitions of one particular doctor and his future long-suffering, wife; one particular doctor who may even now be considering a medical career. Gustafson has the skill to write speculation that reads as a medical future that is already established hard fact. Does this doctor actual exist, one who might possibly retire in say 2068?

Outdated Part 2 (DNF)
The Future Factor: The Five Forces Transforming Our Lives and Shaping Human Destiny - Michael G. Zey

The Future Factor: The Five Forces Transforming our Lives and Shaping Human Destiny by Michael G. Zey talks about the advent of social, economic, and technological innovations which have shaped us as a species and how these and others will continue to help us evolve.The problem was that it is so outdated that there was little point in me reading beyond page 20. This book was written in 2000 but from the first page made reference to events and situations which considering how fast technology changes made this book (and its many references) obsolete. That's the problem with books about the future...once you reach a certain point they hold no relevance or accuracy beyond a certain window of time.
