The umbilical catheters are generally of two kinds: umbilical artery catheter and umbilical vein catheter. 

  • An umbilical artery catheter is a soft, hollow, and a long tube. A UAC enables blood to be taken from a baby at different intervals, without having to insert needle sticks. It can likewise be utilized to consistently monitor an infant's pulse and blood pressure. 
  • A vein and two arteries in an umbilical cord are responsible for carrying blood back and forth. In case, if an infant is sick just after birth, a catheter might be required. Thus, the catheter which is connected to vein is known as umbilical vein catheter. It helps in administering the medicines and fluids to be given frequently without changing the IV.

Umbilical vessel catheter are the thin flexible tube made of medical grade material which is used to place in the blood vessel in the stump of a newborn’s umbilical cord. Umbilical vessel catheter are used for the treatment of new born premature babies. Umbilical vessel catheter act as an open passage which allows doctors to perform the treatment more easily. These catheters are used to provide special medication, fluids, and nutrition to the neonatal. Umbilical vessel catheters are basically of two types, viz. Umbilical artery catheter (UAC) and umbilical venous catheter (UVC). Umbilical artery catheter is inserted into the artery of the umbilical cord to withdraw the blood sample and monitoring the blood pressure. Umbilical artery catheter requires fewer needle sticks to withdraw the blood sample. The umbilical venous catheter is inserted into the vein of the umbilical cord to provide the fluid and medication to the neonatal. Umbilical venous catheter requires deep insertion to deliver the medication and fluid to the neonatal. As per FDA guidelines, the umbilical vessel catheter can be used for only 7 or less days, if the further treatment requires then doctors need to insert the peripheral catheter through leg or arm.

Umbilical Vessel Catheters Infection Market: Drivers and Restraints

The increase in the number of premature deliveries throughout the globe and rise in the number of neonatal care center are the primary factors driving the growth of umbilical vessel catheter market.

Moreover, umbilical vessel catheter requires fewer needle sticks during the treatment. This factors will increase the demand of umbilical vessel catheter for the treatment of premature neonatal. The increased focus of medical devices manufacturers for the research and development on the neonatal products will boost the growth of this market. Continuous blood pressure monitoring and sample collection of blood gases can be done easily by using the umbilical vesselcatheter which will again upsurge the demand for this market. The risk of infection and blood clotting during the treatment by using umbilical vessel catheter will sluggish the growth of this market. Besides that lack of skilled professionals to handle umbilical vessel catheters and high cost of product will hamper the growth of this market over the forecast period.
