Care Pathways Involving Urodynamics

Posted by Clark Love on Aug 2, 2021 5:43:50 PM

Urodynamics is a panel of tests relating to the lower urinary tract. It is most commonly used in its entirety; however, it is also possible that one or more of the components will be performed separately if symptoms suggest this is necessary.

Urodynamics is the most reliable way to determine the cause of lower urinary tract symptoms and therefore, the best way to determine which treatment methods are most appropriate.

A Care Pathway is an evidenced-based framework to build a treatment plan upon, beginning with the primary physician, continuing to specialist referrals if necessary, and following the patient through to the end of their treatment (including follow-up care).

They typically follow a common path that starts with patient history, followed by clinical assessment, provisional diagnosis, first line management, specialist management, and follow-up care.

Some examples are listed here:

The Complete Guide to Urodynamics Testing

Posted by Clark Love on Apr 22, 2021 5:30:30 PM

When it comes to diagnosing patients right the first time, urologists, obstetricians, gynecologists, and healthcare professionals who want to improve the services they offer to patients all need to have access to the right testing options for diagnosing specific issues. The same is true when it comes to monitoring the health of the lower urinary system, with urodynamics being the only testing option specifically designed to monitor patient urinary health.

 

What Is Urodynamics?

Urodynamics refers specifically to the study of how the bladder, urethra, and associated sphincters in the body do their job of storing and releasing urine. Urodynamic testing therefore refers to the set of tests that provide healthcare professionals with valuable information on the health and function of a patient’s urinary system.

Water vs Air Charged Transducer Catheter Pressures in The Evaluation of Cystometrogram & Voiding Pressure Studies

Posted by Clark Love on Mar 2, 2018 1:03:17 PM

In the following article we are going to summarize this study. The aim of this research paper is to present facts and data to state that simultaneous pressure measurements with WP and AC in a single catheter will provide analogous pressures for Valsalvas, coughs, and maximum pressures in voiding pressure studies (VPS).
