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 demonstrated a significant link between intensive urine output monitoring and improved detection of acute kidney injury (AKI), reduced 30-day mortality in patients developing AKI, and reduced fluid overload for all patients. Yet only 26% of patients are getting timely U/O readings. Learn more.
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, (3) Accuryn demonstrated measurement superiority against a competitive UO monitoring system. Learn more
Active Drain Line Clearance Is Designed to Reduce Urine Retention.
Urine drainage issues are common with 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.
- Early detection of renal function and AKI risk, leading to better outcomes
- Enhanced staff efficiency and performance
- Helps prevent retained urine (4)
- Minimizes false oliguria (4)
