The technology is also used for the diagnosis of respiratory diseases. Stakeholders for this report include the companies engaged in manufacturing, distribution and marketing of capnography equipment and new entrants, who are planning to invest in the capnography equipment market.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2016 -- Capnography is a technique used to monitor the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the respiratory gases. It is majorly used as a monitoring tool during procedural sedation, anesthetics, and in intensive care. The analysis is presented in a form of graph known as capnogram, which depicts expiratory CO2 measured in terms of mmHg, plotted against time or expired volume of air. Irregular curve formation signifies some form of lung disease or obstructive conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. High demand for plastic surgeries in Latin America, rise in the prevalence of respiratory diseases, and technological advancements in the field of capnography are the major factors driving the capnography market in Latin America. According to a survey conducted by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), an organization for board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeons, Brazil accounted for 9.1% share of the total number of procedures conducted in Latin America, followed by Mexico with only 3.8% share of the total procedures. Procedural sedation, one of the important procedures in plastic surgery, has increased the usage of capnography equipment in this region.
