This project’s Medical system is a pioneering bedside Urine Output (UO) Measuring Device for hospitalized patients. Offering a breakthrough solution for robust, accurate and automatic UO measurement- with lower cost, less workload and improved patient safety.
Critical care units are equipped with commercial monitoring devices capable of sensing patients’ physiological parameters and supervising the achievement of the established therapeutic goals. This avoids human errors in this task and considerably decreases the workload of the health-care staff. However, at present there still is a very relevant physiological parameter that is measured and supervised manually by the critical care units’ health-care staff: urine output. And this project is bringing a breakthrough solution for UO automatic measurement.
Urine Output is the early indication for critical alert to major internal, hidden problems. 30% Of ICU patients will develop Acute Kidney Injury, X3 mortality rate, and 3.5 days Increased length of hospital stay, X4 likelihood of hospital readmission. Nurse manually checks urine levels for each patient, each hour; 8% of ICU nurse time is dedicated to measuring and calculating UO. And existing solutions for UO are Urine Meter Drainage Bag, Bard Criticore Monitor etc. They are all gravity dependant, complicated and hard to maintain. Comparing with above solutions, this project’s solution has following advantages and features:
B. Des, with 10 years in industrial design on medical & industrial devices.
M. Sc. EE with 30 years experience in medical device R&D and management.
