Rising Number of Road Accidents Uphold Need for Tourniquet Systems in Emergency Healthcare Services
Besides industrial accidents, slips, and falls, road accidents are one of the most common causes of serious limb injuries across the world. The WHO states that in 2013, nearly 1.24 mn people died worldwide due to road accidents. Moreover, several millions suffer serious fractures and limb injuries from road accidents every year across the world. The WHO also mentions in a report that only 28 countries in the world, accounting for a mere 7% of the world’s population, have comprehensive and well defined road safety laws.
Lenient countries are thus highly susceptible to witnessing an increased number of accidents triggered by risk factors such as drinking and driving, speeding, and failure to use motorcycle helmets. The rising numbers of consumer vehicles entering the roads every year, especially in developing countries, also leverage the risk of road accidents in the absence of proper traffic rules and regulations.
As tourniquets form one of the first lines of treatment for emergency orthopedic injuries and accident patients, the rising numbers of road accidents will require an increased number of tourniquets in hospitals and other healthcare settings over the future. Developing countries in Asia Pacific, in a bid to improve their healthcare infrastructures and enhance the management of accident cases, will be the leading consumers of tourniquets.
Rising Healthcare Expenditures to Boost Increased Inclusion of Tourniquets at Healthcare Facilities
Rising healthcare expenditures across developed and developing countries is also boosting the demand for tourniquets across hospitals and trauma centers. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services revealed that healthcare spending in the U.S. increased from 3.6% in 2013 to 5% in 2014.
