Pilot trial of Midstream Urine Collection device verses Transurethral Catheter
17th May 2020
Baylor Scott and White in Temple, Texas, is a healthcare provider with an eye on innovation and improvement to patient health and experience.
When scientific researcher Rachel High expressed an interest in comparing the quality of a Peezy Midstream urine sample to the transurethral catheter method often used in Urology Clinic, we agreed to provide the 60 kits required.
The results show that Peezy Midstream samples detected 7 out of 8 uropathogens, with no detectable difference in microscopic urinalysis and confirms that patients prefer this novel collection device to catheterisation.
Further research on contamination rates is recommended.
