CAUTIs
Bladder Scan

Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs)

BladderScan can help reduce CAUTIs in your facility

Urinary catheters are associated with higher UTI rates, longer hospital stays, and increased costs.1,2 And up to 80% of nosocomial UTIs come from indwelling urinary catheter use.3

CDC Guidelines (II-H) updated in 2009 indicate, “Consider using a portable ultrasound device…to reduce unnecessary catheter insertions.” Further information on this guideline is available at CDC Website.

BladderScan® ultrasound instruments noninvasively measure bladder volume accurately and reliably. They are easy for staff to use and no sonographer is required. They can help reduce catheterizations, the rate of catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and the complications that can result.
