What do you think is the better way of performing urethral catheterization?


The previous or the present practice?why do you think it is so?
----------

If you believe in progress and development then, presumably, the present practice would be better than the previous practice. However this is not always the case as present practices are sometimes inferior to previous practices as sometimes the new practice is much faster at the expense of other factors such as risk factors.  (+ info)

How to know if it is UTI or just urethral irritation?


I've been taking these diet pills for 3 days now and it has been acting like a diuretic. I drink lots of water and gatorade to compensate for the water loss. This led to frequent urination, I peed like 10 times today. Just recently, I experienced burning sensation and a trace of blood in the urine. I hope this is nothing serious. I decided to stop using the diet pill.

Is septicemia a probable consequence after urethral operation on a kidney patient stage 5 or is it malpractic?


I have a strong impression that the doctors should have taken particular attention to this type of patient. Please answers from profesionals.
----------

Yes but it will depend on how long after the operation did the "septicemia" occur. Likewise you need to prove that the doctor omitted something that could have caused the infection in the first place. Your question is quite specific but we need a whole lot of details about what happened before it can be labeled as malpractice.  (+ info)

Is it normal for air/bubbles to come out of an urethral catheter after insertion?


I've put a catheter into myself a few times and the past two times I've had air come out of my penis. Once, the air came out after I had removed the catheter and went to urinate regularly. The second time, it came out of the catheter itself when I laid down on my bed to put on a diaper. Is this normal?
----------

Well, absent a very nasty complication which your doctor would be in a position to tell you about, the only way air is going to get into your bladder is through the catheter. And this happens if you position yourself in such a way that your intra-abdominal pressure becomes negative - that is, lower than the air outside your body, and air is sucked in. This may well happen if you lie with your chest lower than your hips.

It is harmless. ("Pneumaturia") It only happens because you used the catheter and all the urine came out (which is of course what you want), leaving space for the air to fill your bladder.  (+ info)

What is the condition for the obstruction of the coronary arteries?


It's a project for medical terminology, and I've looked everywhere and can't find it...please help!
----------

Coronary artery disease is reduced blood flow through the coronary arteries. This is usually due to atherosclerotic plaques, which is usually due to poor diet and aging.

When blood flow is completely obstructed, your heart can't get oxygen and starts to die. You feel a sudden, sharp stabbing pain and yep it's a HEART ATTACK! The med term for heart attack is Myocardial Infarction (infarct = area that dies due to lack of blood; Myocardial = heart muscle).

I'm sure that's what your instructor is looking for. Actually, myocardial infarction is a type of "Acute Coronary Syndrome," which is a phrase doctors use to cover sudden onset chest pain ("unstable angina"), NSTEMI (a type of Myocardial Infarction) and STEMI (a worse type of Myocardial Infarction).  (+ info)

For the past week, Susan has felt a burning sensation in the urethral area when she urinates?


She checks her temperature and finds that she has a low grade fever. What unusual substances are likely to be present in her urine?
----------

Most likely a bacterial infection,,, a urinary tract infection..... go to the doc before it gets worse and may spread to your kidneys. Also drink lots of cranberry juice.
I used to have chronic infections like that. It will require antibiotics and anti-inflammatory meds.  (+ info)

What's the diagnostic tool to find out bowel obstruction in Bariatric Surgery altered people?


The CT Scan it gives a jolt of the equivalent of 5000 X-Rays.

So good to be thin and "healthy" after undergoing frankenstein inspired surgery...
Emily so you know what 5000 X Rays do to your chances of getting Cancer?
----------

I've had bariatric surgery. The first time it was suspected I might have an obstruction they did do a CT scan, however, the second occurrence, they
performed an upper endoscopy. It's painless (you're briefly placed under sedation) and the Doctor examines the esophagus and pouch with an instrument with a light/camera attached. But I believe the common protocol is the CT scan.

*I know X-Ray/Radiation increases chances of Cancer, but if one has a bowel obstruction, what would you reckon your chances are with an Ischemic (dead) bowel?  (+ info)

Can Pepcid (h2 blocker) cause a bowel obstruction or partial bowel obstruction?


Is it possible for an H2 blocker like pepcid to cause a bowel obstruction or even a partial bowel obstruction?

Even if it was only taken a few times?
Thanks for the info Anasthasia, however it doesn't answer my question, lol
----------

hii Lex,
Famotidine (Pepcid AC) is the most potent H2 blocker. The most common side effect of famotidine is headache, which occurs in 4.7% of people who take it. Famotidine is virtually free of drug interactions but the FDA has just issued a warning on its use in patients with kidney problems

Famotidine is excreted primarily by the kidney. This can pose a danger to people with kidney problems. Physicians are now being advised by the US Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada to reduce the dose and increase the time between doses in patients with kidney failure. Use of the drug in those with impaired kidney function can affect the central nervous system and may result in anxiety, depression, insomnia or drowsiness, and mental disturbances.

OK. I hope you will be glad with my answer.
Takecare there.

how many people in the UK have urethral catheters inserted and why? sex and age statistics if possible?


I am undertaking a research paper on the number of people that have catheters inserted over the age of 60 years in the UK and hopefully get figures for local towns or cities.
----------

If you want statistics, Yahoo answers is probably not the place to get them because the data will be skewed.

What you are really asking is:

How many people who own a computer, use it during the day, use Yahoo Answers and just happen to be online now use a catheter. You'll find very limited responses.

Also, if you are looking for people over 60, this age group do not use computers very much.

There must be other ways to collect your data?

BTW my grandmother has a stoma bag. She has it because her bladder was removed due to cancer. Does that help? She's 87.   (+ info)
