Breathing circuit bags are also called anesthesia breathing systems. They temporarily assist patients for breathing. The basic function of breathing circuit bags is to deliver oxygenated air to the patient and remove carbon dioxide. Breathing systems receive three types of gases, i.e. fresh gas, exhaled dead space gas and exhaled gas. Breathing circuit bags are connected to face masks that are placed over the mouth and the nose of the patient. Oxygen is delivered to patients during inhalation and atmospheric pressure during exaltation. Squeezed breathing bags push the oxygen into the lungs of the patient. The breathing system is connected to the anesthesia machine. In the breathing system, the reservoir bag and the Adjustable Pressure Limiting (APL) valve are connected to a tube for separation. The bags are thin and durable and are made of different sizes depending upon the requirement and needs.
Breathing Circuit Bags Market Dynamics
The breathing circuit bags market is primarily driven by an increase in the number of surgeries and anesthesia usage. Moreover, due to the shortage of doctors, manufactures have developed breathing circuit bags that are attached to the anesthesia machine. The machine monitors the breathing activity of patients. The growth of the breathing circuit bags market can be attributed to powerful regulations and patient safety. Also, breathing circuit bags are used in case of emergencies during traumas or in the ambulances to save the lives of patients. This has created a ray of hope among people, which is responsible for propelling the market over the forecast period. Increase in the number of patient procedures, along with hi-tech and integrated hospital environment, is driving the market of breathing circuit bags. The need for complex procedures and techniques with increased patient needs are also boosting the breathing circuit bags market. If the patient is asleep, he is not likely to sense the flow of oxygen in the lungs. However, lack of skilled people and the risk of cross-contaminations are among factors likely to hamper the growth of the market.
