Procedure trays are used in several hospital procedures. These trays contain different types of disposable products needed during a particular procedure. Procedure trays provides the user with various single-use components, thereby improving convenience of managing surgical interventions. The components in the procedure trays differ from procedure to procedure. Usage of these trays ensures reduced waste generation and more procedures in less time.
Custom procedure trays are resourceful, as these provide health care professionals with all the sterile instruments, disposable products, and tools required for specific procedures. The use of pre-packed or custom procedure trays eliminates the requirement to stock individual components in bulk separately. Custom procedure trays or pre-packed procedure trays reduce the setup time, decrease patient wait time, and improve the overall efficiency of work and overall inventory management system.
Introduction of various rules and regulations in the past to implement better facilities, inventories and certain practices led to improved and efficient procedure and several healthcare services. For instance, in 2006, the U.S. implemented the Health Act, which makes it mandatory for health care establishments to implement certain practices to prevent and control infections associated with treatments. This has made the usage of custom procedure trays and other health care related equipment imperative in medical practices.
These regulations further ensure increased emphasis on measures to control infections, thereby directly promoting the use of custom procedure trays to negate the chances of any form of infection. According to National Center for Health Statistics, in 2009, the number of inpatient surgeries performed in the U.S. was estimated to be 48 million. Additionally, rise in preference for minimally invasive surgeries across the globe has triggered the growth of the Procedure Trays Market. Every year more patients are undergoing minimally invasive surgeries owing to lower associated risks compared to conventional surgeries. However, absence of standardization at a global level is anticipated to restrain the global procedure trays market in the next few years.
