ABSTRACT:
A systematic investigation of urodynamics will provide an explanation and comprehension of various invasive and non invasive investigations involved in urodynamics such as uroflowmetry, post void residual measurement, cystometric test, leak point pressure measurement, pressure flow study, electromyography, video Urodynamic tests. This simple, painless study is a series of tests that allows your physician to evaluate any problems your bladder may have storing or emptying urine. Reasons for these tests may include incontinent (leak urine), bladder may not empty completely, uncomfortable symptoms, such as the frequent need to urinate or a constant urgent need to urinate, urine stream may be intermittent or weak, Client may have persistent urinary tract infections. Bladder and abdominal pressure is measured during filling and voiding. Urodynamic equipment calculates detrusor pressure by subtracting abdominal from pelvic. This pressure measures during filling and voiding of urine. The terminology in this abstract has comply with cooper measure guide, International Continence Society and department of urodynamics standard and quality control.
