class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left: 0.2in;"> style="">Syllabus for Meditech

The syllabus in this can only be formulated by books published by international publishers on the subject. All the books are available to buy from:

The growth in the domestic health care sector is expected to be more than 17 per cent a year in view of the rising per capita spending on health care products, greater exposure to international products in this area, importance and awareness of health care insurance and medical tourism.

The health care industry is fragmented into corporate and small hospitals and nursing homes. The note says, “health care industry generates $17 billion of business a year in India”.

The textile industry largely depends on this sector to speed up growth.

The share of meditech, a part of the healthcare sector in the Indian technical textiles market, is around 5 per cent.

A wide range of medical textile products and healthcare and hygiene products – including sanitary napkins (35 per cent market share), surgical dressings (30 per cent), sutures (20 per cent) and diapers and orthopaedic implants – contributes considerably to the meditech market in India.Including disposable textile Disposable Protective Clothing for Use in Medicine and Medical Labs Our medical scrubs and other protective clothing provide a safety barrier by helping to impede the spread of viruses and infections to medical personnel and patients. Choosing Your Protective Clothing: Spun-bonded polypropylene, SMS, and Tyvek produce quality medical garments intended for limited wear. These medical garments offer the comfort of a breathable fabric and protection against germs and other impurities. Our lab coats and covers are excellent for both light outpatient surgery procedures and the intense demands in the labs. If you need extra protection against wetness, chemical dust, or solid airborne dust, we recommend PP/PE, CPE, SMS, Micromax, and Tyvek products. You will retain the advantages of wearing breathable disposable garments at very reasonable prices. Coveralls Our non-woven coveralls are made of spun bonded polypropylene (PP), PP coated with PE, CPE, SMS, Micromax, and Tyvek. These products are disposable, lightweight, low-cost, and breathable, and also work very well as protection for professionals in labs and hospitals. Available in most colors and weights. Lab Coat Choose PP, enjoy the comfort of 3-ply SMS materials, or select the maximum protection of Tyvek. Lab coats offer secure protection against cross-contamination. Available in most colors and weights. Isolation and Lab Gowns Choose from the following selection: PP, PP/PE, SMS, SMS with PE, or Tyvek. These garments offer excellent barrier properties, are highly fluid repellent, and lightweight. The lab gown has knitted cuffs. Available in most colors and weights. Shoe Covers Our variety of shoe covers includes PP, PE/PP, CPE, SMS, SMS with PE, and Tyvek. Shoe covers are made from fluid repellent material and have increased tear strength. Shoe covers are available with regular and non-skid soles. Elastic around the perimeter makes one size fit most shoes. Available in white or blue.used in Medical and other uses.

The other avenue where the importance of technical textiles is growing is in the field of cardiology, where, according to government estimates, 35,000 open heart surgeries are done every year, thereby increasing the need in volumes for filters in operations. Till date, about 60 per cent of the need is met by imports.

The course basically stresses on how to meet the rising demand of the medical sector, where technical textiles are used to the maximum. We should also search other avenues to reduce dependence on imports”.
