Implantable Cardioverter-defibrillators Market – Global Industry Insights, Trend

Posted by Rajkumar on April 10th, 2019

An ICD or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator is a battery-operated device that is placed under the skin of the patient to monitor the user’s heart rate. ICDs are connected to the heart by thin wires. In cases where an abnormal heart beat is detected, implantable cardioverter-defibrillator deliver an electric shock to reinstate a normal heart rhythm if the patient’s heart is beating too fast. Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators have been useful in thwarting sudden deaths in patients with fibrillation or sustained ventricular tachycardia. Various studies have shown that they may prevent cardiac arrest in patients who are at a high risk of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. An implantable cardioverter -defibrillator senses when the heart rhythm is not normal and it tries to make the heart rhythm normal. If the device has a pacemaker feature incorporated, it works as a pacemaker when the heartbeat is slow, and transmit tiny electric signals to the heart. However, when the heartbeat is very chaotic or fast, the device gives defibrillation shocks in order to restrain the abnormal rhythm. Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators work for 24 hours a day.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is estimated that around 2.7–6.1 million individuals in the U.S. suffered from atrial fibrillation in 2015. The report suggests that the number of occurrences is likely to increase with the increase in number of aging of the population in this region. Roughly 2% of the population who are younger than 65 years of age suffers from AF. However, around 9% of the population with 65 years of age or more suffers from AF. Increasing cases of AF among the global population coupled with advancement in technology will drive the implantable cardioverter-defibrillators market during the forecast period.

The subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) is inserted without placing the leads into the heart. The device is inserted below the left axilla, or armpit in line with the rib cage. The lead connected to the device is laired under the skin more willingly than inside the heart. Some of the advantages of the S-ICD are the lack of immediate or long-term complications caused by inserting a lead into the heart, such as collapse of the lung and perforation of the heart. Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators are the main driver for the global ICD market due to the aforementioned reasons. The rise in adoption of S-ICDs will propel the overall implantable cardioverter-defibrillators market in the forecast period.
