 Energy storage is a vital component of the Smart Grids that are currently being built around the world.   These grids are designed to improve the reliability of electricity transmission and distribution, facilitate the integration of renewable energy generators, and allow long-distance trading of electricity supplies.  All of these functions require the grid to offer buffers where electricity can be stored locally.  
   
 However, for the most part the technologies up to this task have not been available.  To the extent that grids have incorporated storage it has either been through the use of conventional batteries originally targeted towards the automotive industry and which are not optimal for grid storage or through major engineering projects such as...

Capnography Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Capnography is the measurement of exhaled carbon dioxide concentration in the breath of a patient. It plays an important role in identifying respiratory and basic circulatory distress and impairment by enabling information about CO2 production, perfusion, alveolar ventilation and respiratory pattern. It is based on the principle of carbon dioxide’s ability to absorb infra-red radiation. Due to its rapid assessment ability and accuracy, capnography has become an indispensable part of operating room, emergency room, intensive care unit and delivery room in most hospitals...
