  • The Significance And Market Prominence Of Blood Flow Measurement Devices 0 comments
    Apr 1, 2014 2:26 AM

    The blood circulation inside our body takes place under specific conditions such as pressure and velocity, and is also dependent on our cardiac health, as well as physical activities. Blood pressure is defined as the pressure that is pumped out of the heart and taken into the arterial vessels. Typically, the velocity of blood flowing in our body is a measurable factor and can be determined using an appropriate blood pressure monitor. It is important to keep a check on our blood pressure level, whether in the hospital or at home. A blood pressure gauge meter is a simple way to measure the blood flow and performance of the pumps and the pipes in a human body.

    Read through this comprehensive article below that gives you all the information about a variety of blood flow measurement devices available on the market and its significance in various applications and health conditions.

    Blood Flow Measurement Devices - An Overview

    An accurate measurement of the blood pressure inside the body is highly essential to ascertain the individuals of the blood pressure-related risks, symptoms, and to guide them in taking precautionary measures and management.

    A blood flow measurement device precisely serves the same purpose. These devices are implemented for measuring the volume rate of blood circulation in the blood vessels of the body system. In medical terms, the volume rate of blood flow is defined as the amount of blood flowing and passing through a specific cross section of a blood vessel in per unit time.

    Blood flow measurement devices are an extremely significant use for diagnosing different clinical vascular conditions including peripheral vascular diseases, arterial occlusion and diabetic micro and macro vascular problems. They are most sought after in applications such as cerebral blood flow measurement, skin testing, burn assessment, and more. These devices also record the vascular assessment data of the patients and help the physicians to maintain a balance between the demand of tissue oxygen and supply of those same patients.

    Different Techniques to Measure Blood Pressure

    The measuring of the amount of blood pressure does not pertain to a typical spot in the body, but can be performed anywhere along the entire blood circulation. It can be inside an artery, a heart chamber, within a vein, or within a capillary. There are two numbers in a blood pressure reading namely; systolic and diastolic with a typical reading of 120/80.

    Unlike the primitive form of determining blood pressure using a catheter coupled with a closed chamber, now-a-days, clinicians are more concerned in performing a direct approach for measurement of pressure that is typically done by inserting a needle or a catheter into a blood vessel and record the data. In clinical practice, one can adopt an indirect method of measuring arterial pressure with the help of a manual sphygmomanometer. Some other methods include oscillometric technique, auscultatory method, ultrasound techniques, and the finger cuff method of Penaz.

    Blood Flow Measurement Devices - Product Types

    Considering the rise in geriatric population across the globe for minimally invasive procedures, a wide growth of the global blood flow measurement devices market has triggered the healthcare market. Today, the market for blood flow measurement devices includes a list of modern technical devices such as ultrasonic Doppler, laser Doppler, and electromagnetic blood flow measurement devices that caters services such as monitoring dermatology, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes, tumor monitoring, , intracranial monitoring (stroke & brain injury), and angiogenesis.

    Amongst the various diseases, the peripheral vascular disease accounts to be one of the biggest applications of blood flow measurement devices.

    Market Status

    The use of blood flow measurement devices spreads across major regions such as Europe, North America, Asia and ROW (Rest of World). According to the transparency market research data regarding the end of the forecast period: Market Revenue for 2019 (NYSEARCA:USD) the proposed figure for the Blood Flow Measurement Devices market is stated to be 506.1 Million, with a CAGR of 8.7% for 2013-2019.


    This article is intently written to explain the user the purpose and importance of using blood flow measurement devices in various healthcare conditions, and should not be used as a primary source for expert medical advice.
