The North America intraoperative neuromonitoring market is expected to reach US$ 1,874. 02 million by 2027 from US$ 1,029. 17 million in 2019; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7. 9% from 2019 to 2027.New York, Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "North America Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Product ; Source ; Application ; Modality ; and End User, and Country" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05978901/?utm_source=GNW The intraoperative neuromonitoring market in North America grows primarily due to rising incidences of neurological disorders and increasing technological advancements in the field of neuromonitoring; however, the lack of skilled professionals restrains the growth of the market. Additionally, increasing research activities in nerve monitoring field and integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technology with neuromonitoring are expected to fuel the growth of the intraoperative neuromonitoring market during the forecast period.Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM), an integral part of most of the surgical procedures, prevents the neurological damage that may cause during surgeries.It also identifies the neural structures, thereby preventing the post-operative impairments.IOM employs a wide range of modalities such as motor evoked potentials (MEPs), somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs), electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography, brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs), and visual evoked potentials (VEPs).Neuromonitoring provides real-time alerts during the surgery and helps the surgeon make informed decisions to avoid neural injuries; also, many integrated technologies enhance the patient outcome. Many studies demonstrate that a combination of advanced optical imaging with an AI algorithm generate an accurate, real-time intraoperative diagnosis of brain tumors.For instance, Nervio has developed an innovative, autonomous, and intraoperative neuromonitoring solution by using AI technology.The system offers real-time alerts and clinical recommendations during the surgery.The company aims to make neuromonitoring accessible and affordable.Moreover, Al is increasingly being utilized in treating neurological disorders.For example, in October 2019, Henry Ford Health System and Mon4t launched a pilot study related to AI and Parkinson’s disease. Thus, these innovations drive the growth of the market.The patients who go through critical surgeries such as spinal surgery, neurosurgery, or ENT surgery need physical attention and are required to undergo a few procedures in clinics/hospitals.The procedures include intraoperative neuromonitoring by systems, services, and accessories.During surgical treatments and other procedures, doctors and healthcare specialists are in direct contact with patients.Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation in North America, it is crucial to maintain social distancing in order to avoid direct exposure to body fluids.Considering these facts, many hospitals and clinics are hesitating to schedule these surgeries unless it is critical. Therefore, this scenario affects the growth of the intraoperative neuromonitoring market in North America.In 2019, the systems segment accounted for the largest share of the North America intraoperative neuromonitoring market.Systems in intraoperative monitoring have become a crucial factor in neurosurgery as these offer an early warning concerning motor and sensory functions during surgery, thus it yields better results and avoids post-operative neurophysiological deficits.Moreover, market players are continuously developing advanced products to gain high market share.A few major secondary sources referred to while preparing the North America intraoperative neuromonitoring market report are World Health Organization (WHO), Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Orthopaedic Research Society, Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI), and American Association of Neurological Surgeons.Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p05978901/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.

The results highlight the United States as the sector's biggest prize but Afterpay faces intense competition there from the likes of Sweden's Klarna and more established financial firms such as PayPal Holdings. Arguably Australia's hottest stock this year, Afterpay now has 11.2 million active customers as of the end of September, 1.3 million more than three months ago.

San Francisco leaders voted to crack down on so-called "Karens" who use 911 calls to discriminate against minorities. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed the Caution Against Racially and Exploitative Non-Emergencies, or CAREN, Act on Tuesday, which amends the city's police code and allows anyone harmed by such calls to sue. Supervisor Shamann Walton, who introduced the bill in July, said in a statement that the act should make residents think twice before calling the police on their Black or minority neighbors over a non-emergency.
(Bloomberg) -- Callaway Golf Co. plans to buy the remainder of driving-range chain Topgolf Entertainment Group, providing the golf-club giant with a new source of growth.The deal values closely held Topgolf at about $2 billion, the companies said in a statement after Tuesday’s market close. Callaway, the maker of Big Bertha drivers and other equipment, already owns 14% of Topgolf. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier Tuesday that the acquisition was in the works.Topgolf driving ranges -- which feature food, drinks and electronic games -- are seen as a way to bring younger players to golf, which has suffered from aging demographics and the closing of hundreds of courses in recent years. They also have held up during the pandemic because golfers can practice their swing while remaining socially distant.With the merger, Callaway hopes to acquire new customers and add a stronger digital component to golfing, Chief Executive Officer Chip Brewer said in an interview.“We have thoughts about being the Peloton of golf,” Brewer said. He added that the company could offer more microtransactions in the future, charging for personalized golf content.The companies said they expect pro forma revenue of about $2.8 billion and see it growing to $3.2 billion by 2022, projecting 10% annual growth thereafter. They predict that the deal will close early next year.Callaway shares closed down 3.1% after briefly climbing as much as 8.9%. They’re down 9% this year through Tuesday’s close.Callaway, located in Carlsbad, California, first invested in Dallas-based Topgolf in 2006.Topgolf CEO Dolf Berle, meanwhile, plans to leave the company to start his own business after the transition period, he said in an interview.(Updates with executive comments starting in third paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
