BVI 9400 Applications

Urology

BladderScan instruments assist in:

  • Measuring post-void residual (PVR) bladder volume
  • Assessing urinary retention

 

Diagnosing:

  • Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO)
  • Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS)
  • Overactive bladder (OAB)
  • Monitoring postoperative recovery

 

Primary Care (Internal Medicine/Family Practice)

BladderScan instruments aid in the diagnosis and treatment of:

  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
  • Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO)
  • Overactive bladder (OAB)

BladderScan instruments provide information to more easily evaluate urological conditions, and prescribe appropriate treatment sooner, often during the same office visit.

 

Acute Care

In the acute care setting, BladderScan instruments assist in diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of postoperative urinary retention (POUR) and help prevent catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).

For Healthcare Providers:

BladderScan instruments help:

  • Assess urinary retention 
  • Evaluate post-op urinary retention (POUR)
  • Reduce unnecessary catheterisation
  • Reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs)
  • Identify a blocked Foley catheter*
  • Evaluate need to catheterise after Foley catheter removal
  • Evaluate need to catheterise during intermittent catheterisation
  • Assist in bladder retraining (biofeedback)
  • Verify empty bladder

 

Extended Care

When utilised as part of a comprehensive incontinence management program, BladderScan instruments help:

  • Maximise urinary continence
  • Reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs)
  • Improve residents’ quality of life
  • Save staff time and increase job satisfaction
  • Reduce the cost of care

*If you scan a patient with a catheter in his/her bladder, the catheter may affect measurement accuracy. However, the information obtained from the measurement could still be clinically useful for detecting problems such as a blocked catheter.

 

Radiation Therapy

It is essential to have a constant, known bladder volume for planning and treating men with prostate cancer using high dose conformal radiation. BladderScan® is a well-recognised and proven device for this application with regard to:

  • Aiding with bladder filling protocols
  • Simple, fast and consistent bladder volume measurement throughout treatment
  • Eliminates need for primary and/or additional CT scans or X-ray
  • Portable, to assist clinical process
  • No sonographer required
  • Helps reduce the cost of care
