October 5th, 2010

Global Information Inc. presents a new market research report, "U.S. Markets for Cardiac Rhythm Management Products" by Medtech Insight.

Acute and chronic arrhythmias afflict an estimated 8 million people in the U.S. This number accounts for more than 20% of all medical conditions treated by cardiologists. Each year, approximately $35 billion in direct and indirect healthcare costs result from cardiac rhythm disorders in the U.S. According to a new report from Medtech Insight, "The U.S. Cardiac Rhythm Management Products Market totaled more than $7.9 billion in 2009 and despite prevailing economic conditions is expected to grow at a healthy 4.8% compound annual rate, reaching more than $10.0 billion in 2014."

Cardiac rhythm disorders  also referred to as dysrhythmias or arrhythmias  include a range of relatively common chronic conditions, which are characterized by recurrent distortions in the contractile and electrical activity of the heart. These conditions may cause clinically significant and progressive hemodynamic deficits and cardiopulmonary impairment, consequentially leading to the onset of catastrophic events like cardiac arrest or stroke.

This report includes analyses of markets, products, competitors, emerging technology and opportunities. It covers critical device-based arrhythmia diagnostic and therapeutic systems that are routinely employed in the management of patients with conditions such as debilitating bradycardia and heart block, life-threatening atrial and ventricular tachyarrhythmia, cardiac asynchrony associated with progressing heart failure, arrhythmias-induced cardiogenic shock and sudden cardiac arrest.
