To help gather specific date about how a bladder is functioning, the Urodynamics service provides several tests that may suggest treatment plans for.
Urinary biofeedback; Biofeedback training
How biofeedback can help
Biofeedback is effective in many patients with different bladder control problems such as those:
- Who do not empty their bladders completely
- Who strain in order to urinate
- Who get recurrent urinary tract infections
- Who experience periods of urgency to urinate
- Who continue to wet despite other therapies
How biofeedback is performed
A set of sensors (sticky patches) that detect muscle activity is placed on your buttocks near the sphincter area. The sensors are attached to a small computer that records the signals from the sensors and presents them on the computer screen for you to see. The signals change as you contracts and relaxes the sphincter muscle. In this way, the process of isolating the sphincter muscle and understanding how to properly relax this muscle begins.
The procedure is not painful
The placement of the sensors and the recordings into the computer are not painful. No electric shocks pass to the patient.
Other testing may be performed during biofeedback
In order to better assess the way in which you empties bladder, an ultrasound of the bladder is performed to measure the volume of urine at the beginning of the session and the amount left inside after she urinates. Also, a uroflow (voiding into a special commode) is performed to evaluate her voiding pattern.
Therefore, it is important that your child arrives for the biofeedback session with a full bladder. To do this, have you drink clear liquid for one hour prior to the session.
Some foods can affect the results of biofeedback
Bowelhabits also can affect biofeedback
All of your questions concerning biofeedback are welcome. The more you understand, the better you can help your bladder control problem.
