POUR - Postoperative Urinary Retention

BladderScan bladder volume instruments can help in the PACU.

Among the concerns in the PACU is managing postoperative urinary retention (POUR).

New evidence-based guidelines suggest that patient care may be improved and POUR may be alleviated by recommending appropriate catheter removal combined with ultrasound bladder monitoring.1

BladderScan® ultrasound bladder volume instruments help diagnose and monitor urinary retention. They are quick, accurate, easy to use-no sonographer is required. They can help manage POUR and improve patient outcomes by reducing the duration of urinary catheterization, or avoiding it altogether.2
