Market Report Description

The Global Hospital-Acquired Infection Diagnostics Market size is expected to reach $5.6 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 7.8% CAGR during the forecast period.

Infections acquired in hospitals are associated with viral, bacterial, or fungal pathogens. Numerous infections can be obtained in clinical settings such as nursing homes, rehabilitation center, outpatient clinics, or other therapeutic settings. It can be acquired from an infected patient, the surrounding environment, or the facility's staff. All patients are at risk for infections acquired in the hospital.

People that had surgery, the children and the elderly, are more likely to get hospital-acquired infections. The most common infections are surgical-site infections, respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal infections, cardiovascular system infections, bloodstream infections, and bone and joint infections. Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are a leading cause of death among hospitalized patients in both developed and emerging countries.

All across the world, the amount of surgical procedures conducted each year has been steadily increasing, and by the end of the decade, it is predicted to hit a new high. As the need for surgical instruments grows along with the number of surgical procedures performed, the risk of healthcare-associated infections is expected to rise. A growing understanding of the value of sterilized and disinfected medical tools and devices would help drive demand for nosocomial infection control equipment. Other factors driving sales of hospital obtained infection control systems include the increased frequency of chronic diseases and advances in surgical equipment.

Many clinicians can identify a HAI (Hospital acquired infection) based just on appearance and symptoms. Inflammation and/or a rash at the infection site might also be signs. HAIs do not include infections that develop complex prior to the stay. However, any additional symptoms should be reported to the doctor during the stay. The treatment for various illnesses is determined by the type of infection. Antibiotics and bed rest are likely to be prescribed by the doctor. It will also remove any foreign devices like catheters as soon as it's medically necessary.
