Accuryn Urine Output

Accuryn Urine Output2018-12-06T15:09:16+00:00

Tighter urine output monitoring can help save lives.

There are an estimated 300,000 deaths from acute kidney injury (AKI) annually in the U.S.1 In a recent study published in CHEST, the official publication of the American College of Chest Physicians, researchers determined intensive monitoring of urine output is associated with increased detection of acute kidney injury and improved outcomes, including reduced 30-day mortality in patients developing AKI and reduced fluid overload for all patients. Yet, only 26% of patients are receiving intensive urinary output monitoring.2

Until now, urgent demands may have prevented timely readings. Compounding things, airlocks and dependent loops cause urinary retention and false measurements.3 In a multi-center randomized clinical study, compared to the Bard Criticore urine monitor, the Accuryn critical care monitoring system with active drain line clearance reduced airlocks and periods of false oliguria.3

Urine-Output Monitoring Accuryn Medline

Intensive monitoring of urine output is associated with increased detection of acute kidney injury and improved outcomes.2

Active drain line clearance is designed to reduce urine retention.

Urine drainage issues are common with indwelling urinary catheters (IUCs). If urine can’t drain within the IUC system, the bladder isn’t able to empty. This can cause unreliable UO and IAP measurements.

Using active drain line clearance, the Accuryn monitor automatically clears the drainage line as needed.

This pioneering technology:

  • Early detection of renal function and AKI risk, leading to better outcomes
  • Enhanced staff efficiency and performance
  • Helps prevent retained urine4
  • Minimizes false oliguria4
