Caresono Padscan Bladder Scanner (HD3) features real-time, high resolution 3D ultrasound images and measures the urinary bladder volume quickly, safely, and automatically, all in a non-invasive manner.
A bladder scanner is a non-invasive, portable ultrasound device that provides a virtual 3D image of the bladder and the volume of urine retained within the bladder. Retained urine is a reservoir for bacteria and pathogens, which can cause urinary tract infections, leading to damage of the renal structures, pain, and sepsis.
Bladder scans are commonly utilized in acute care, long-term care, and rehabilitation environments, as well as in physicians' offices. Without the use of a bladder scanner, urinary retention is assessed by performing an invasive "in and out" urinary catheterization, which can be uncomfortable and pose a direct risk of introducing more pathogens into the bladder, increasing a patient's risk of infection.
Caresono Padscan Bladder Scanner (HD3) includes an ultrasound transducer, probe cup, docking stand, two batteries, USB data line, AC wall adapter, 14 V power connection line, printer paper, CD (with upper computer software and user manual), charger, screwdriver, and a carry case with two keys.
