Assessment of Third Trimester Post-Void Residual and Validation of Bladder Scanner in Pregnancy and Post-Partum
Recruitment status was Active, not recruiting
This will be a descriptive study measuring the post—void residual of patients in the third trimester and postpartum. Also, bladder scan values will be compared to the amount of urine obtained from a Foley catheter to determine the accuracy of the bladder scanner in the third trimester and postpartum.
|Study Design:||Time Perspective: Prospective|
|Official Title:||Assessment of Third Trimester Post-Void Residual Along With Determining Validity of the Bladder Scanner in the Third Trimester of Pregnancy and Postpartum|
- Define normal post-void residual volume in third trimester pregnancy and post-partum. [ Time Frame: 12-24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Calculate the validity of measurements form the bladder scanner ultrasound for bladder volumes during the third trimester of pregnancy and post-partum. [ Time Frame: 12-24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||October 2008|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Bladder Scan Group
Patients who agree to enroll in the trial and allow their known bladder volumes and residual bladder volumes to be measured by actual volumes retrograde instilled, and also by bladder scanner ultrasound.
