Global Infection Control Market: Infection Control an Effective Way to Decrease the Worldwide Death Rate

Global Infection Control Market

Infection control is used to prevent the spreading of infections in any healthcare settings. These infections can be caused due bacteria and viruses which can spread through human interactions, air borne transmissions, by food or water and other. The patients in the hospitals have weak immune system which makes them more responsive toward these infections. Many different anti- infective agents such as anti- fungal, anti- bacterial and others are used so that these infections can be controlled. Invasive nature of many modern medical procedures is the factor which develops many unrelated infections in hospitals and healthcare facilities. Some of the common infection control measurements are washing hand regularly, following the infection control standards, control of the vectors of infection, quarantine of contacts and others.

Some of the factor responsible for the growth of this market:

  • Increasing Occurrence of Hospital-Acquired Infections: Hospital-acquired infection or nosocomial infections are those infections which are usually acquired in hospitals or healthcare facility. They mainly occur due to bacteria, fungi, virus and others pathogens. These infections are mainly acquired in hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers and other healthcare facilities. People with weak immune systems are more likely to get an infection. They can mainly cause problems such as hospital acquired pneumonia, puerperal fever, central line associated blood stream infection, urinary tract infections and others
  • Growing Number of Surgical Procedures: Today different surgeries are done to treat different diseases and can be done at any age.

Some of the launches by the prominent players in the market are as follows:

  • In February 2019, Royal Philips announced the launch of their IntelliSpace Epidemiology which is specially designed for the detection of healthcare associated infections (HAIs) in the hospital. It is a combination of genomic sequencing information and clinical informatics from pathogenic bacteria so that they can help the infection control teams to identify the infection. The main aim of this launch is to increase the patient safety by providing them all the necessary information so that they can identify the healthcare associated infections
  • In February 2015, Jhpiego announced the launch of their new infection prevention project Comprehensive Approach to Strengthening Essential Infection Prevention and Control Practices for Ebola Virus Disease in Liberia, so that they can strengthen the health services during the Ebola crisis. They will provide all the necessary information and skills to all the care workers and other facilities
