Urine Samples with Peezy Midstream
Pregnancy and the bringing of new life into the world is probably one of the most magical experiences that a woman can have. During the course of the pregnancy, the body will change in many ways – some of which will be more apparent that others. One key element that enables your healthcare provider to monitor these changes is urine and, during the course of your pregnancy, you will be providing many samples.
Urine is a magical liquid and is full of useful information. It’s sometimes described as the window to your health and a clean window, in other words a clean midstream urine (MSU) sample, will lead to a prompt accurate diagnosis and treatment. An accurate MSU can help identify pre-eclampsia, maternal diabetes, UTI and confirm the good health of mother and baby – and this is where the Peezy Midstream comes in.
Research by leading medical organisations has proved that samples collected using Peezy drives down contamination rates from an average 30% to only 1.5% and even more importantly, enables right-first-time diagnosis.
Since Forte Medical introduced Peezy into the market its popularity with both healthcare providers and pregnant women has continued to grow. It’s success in providing clinical accuracy is only enhanced by the fact it is also more hygienic to use and much more dignified. It’s only too easy for germs to spread with spilt urine!
The design of the Peezy Midstream is particularly suitable for pregnant ladies, especially as the bump grows. Its funnel shape fits neatly into the area and as you start to pee it rejects the first-flush of urine, which can carry naturally occurring bacteria that may contaminate your specimen and then captures the information-rich midstream and diverts overflow into the loo. It really couldn’t be easier or cleaner – and your hands and bottle remain dry.
Accurate health screening is never more important than during pregnancy. Now you can request a Peezy Midstream from your midwife or GP, free on prescription. Peezy Midstream – kiss goodbye to hit-and-miss screening.
