Urodynamic Catheters - Urethral Pressure Profile
Product Information - Urodynamic Catheters - Urethral Pressure Profile
Single & Double Lumen UPP Catheters
Mediplus Urodynamics single lumen UPP catheter, designed for the Brown-Wickham Test, features diametrically-opposing holes 7cm from the tip for perfusion and simultaneous pressure measurement, centimetre markings for UPP, and winged luers for secure connections.
The Mediplus urodynamic double lumen UPP catheters enable ease of patient catheterisation, with a fast filling rate followed by simultaneous accurate UPP and cystometry measurement.
The design is such that only 30% of the lumen cross-sectional area is devoted to cystometry measurement, with the remaining 70% dedicated to filling and sequential UPP.
This ensures a maximum fill rate of 100ml per minute (sizes Ch.8 and Ch.10 only) with a catheter diameter smaller than would otherwise be needed: hence greater convenience and patient comfort.
The pressure lines on codes 5704Y and 5724Y are 130cm in length to ensure direct connection of the patient's bladder to the pressure transducer without the need for additional extension tubing, so offering an accurate, cost-saving and convenient catheter.
Double Lumen UPP Catheter - Product Code 5704Y
Triple Lumen UPP Catheters
The three lumen design enables cystometry and UPP with simultaneous perfusion to be performed. The three lumen section of the catheter has a urethral pressure profile cross sectional area showing 50% apportioned to filling for improved filling rates, 25% to cystometry and 25% to UPP. The two colour-coded Ch.4.5 pressure lines (red and blue on the Ch.9 catheters and yellow and blue on the Ch.7 catheter) are an additional 130cm long to enable direct bladder-transducer connection without the need for extension tubing.
The PVC Ch.9 triple lumen catheter is available in two variants, code 5331 with 130cm pressure lines, and codes 5332 and 5335 with shorter 15cm pressure lines.
The polyurethane Ch.7 triple lumen catheter, code 5333, has a low profile collar placed on either side of the urethral pressure measuring eye. This creates a 360° ring of fluid around the circumference of the catheter whilst measuring the urethral pressure. This means that the variation of pressure in the urethra is averaged, which improves the accuracy of the test.
These products are supplied sterile.
The Urodynamics Circuit
Many different configurations of urodynamics "circuit" are used throughout the world. This illustration shows a typical UK/European configuration but whatever your requirements, Mediplus can supply all the components to suit your needs.
