Market Applications for Medical Connectors
One of the most crucial aspects of modern medicine is its ability to adapt and change as both the methods of disease treatment and the needs of practitioners and patients shift. These changes bring about new medical technology and equipment that increases access to lifesaving techniques and innovative procedures. As a result, the medical interconnects used on such equipment are more important than ever.
Medical Connectors Usability
High-quality medical connectors produced by Amphenol Alden use multiple applications throughout all stages of medical care. From diagnosis through treatment, these are some of the many applications influencing the medical connectors and medical cable assemblies market:
- Emergency defibrillation. When the human heart experiences an emergency, such as ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation, rapid response personnel rely on emergency equipment to re-establish a normal heart rhythm. Custom medical connectors for defibrillators can be used on patient-facing applications to provide the necessary lifesaving response.
- Optical electrosurgery. With a high-frequency, high-powered electrosurgical generator, surgeons can now make more precise incisions than ever before. Practitioners can now desiccate tissue, cauterize wounded tissue, and provide hemostasis by inciting blood coagulation. Surgical cable assemblies and multiple medical connectors for electrosurgical devices continue to aid patients who need it most.
- Medical imaging. When there is a patient with a previously undiagnosed condition or set of symptoms, medical imaging is required. In modern day, there are many different approaches to medical imaging, giving providers a better picture inside of the human body. Custom cable assemblies for imaging devices allow for various types of medical imaging, including:
- Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scan
- Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan
- Endoscopic surgery. Recent advances in the size, quality, and resolution of endoscopy cameras have meant increased patient access to endoscopic surgery. A larger number of surgical applications are less invasive than ever before; thus, patient recovery times have decreased while overall patient outcomes have improved. Endoscopy camera cable assemblies provide clear images that precise surgeries require.
- Electrophysiology (EP). When patients experience abnormal heartbeats or arrhythmia, electrophysiological tests utilize voltage changes and electric currents to assess the issue. EP studies produce an enormous amount of data points vital for pinpointing sources and the proper treatment of these abnormalities. Medical connectors for electrophysiology equipment help surgeons access heart intelligence with superior accuracy.
- Cosmetic surgery. Modern cosmetic surgery applications rely on radiofrequency, ultrasound, or microwave use to alter human appearance. Whether utilized for skin tightening or to remove unsightly blemishes or fat tissue, practitioners require access to an ever-widening variety of energy delivery devices. Medical connectors for cosmetic surgery devices ensure patient safety through a stable delivery of energy.
- Patient monitoring.Throughout many of the above applications, safe and accurate patient monitoring via disposable cable assemblies is crucial for positive patient outcomes. As a result, high-quality patient monitoring cables are both ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing. More importantly, these medical connectors are reliable, secure, and improve patient safety no matter what stage of diagnosis, treatment, or recovery they are experiencing.
