Sippi is a unique, single use, digital urine meter which measures biofilm build-up via non-contact capacitive sensors, delivering high constant throughput, and incorporating hourly diuresis, data storage and automatic emptying.
The most obvious are: Accuracy, time saving and ease of use. More subtle effects are increased safety in terms of bacterial infections.
Nosocomial infection in the urinary tract is a common challenge with catheterized patients. The management of nosocomial infection is not only troublesome for the patient it is also a burden for staff and the hospital’s economy. Positive effects of using Sippi are twofold. Since the Sippi system is automated, manual handling of the system is minimized, as this is itself a source of bacterial infection. Uniquely, Sippi both hinders and detects any early biofilm formation, which is the growth matrix for bacteria. Sippi warns the staff when the disposable unit has to be changed, avoiding the risk of bacteria migrating above the system into the urinary tract of the patient.
Volume measurement is performed using capacitive technology. The sensors are placed in the base unit adjacent to where the disposable unit is attached. Without the need for direct contact, the sensors detect the presence of urine in the disposable units inflow chamber. The Sippi base unit calculates a measurable urine flow from the change in capacity that occurs when liquid enters the disposable unit.
