In this clinical case study, learn how Grady Health in Atlanta GA, utilized a novel remote monitoring tablet, directly connected to the Accuryn Monitor System to decrease the burden of PPE resource utilization and save precious time.
Compared to other urine monitors, Accuryn’s automated drainage provided more accurate and continuous data.
There are an estimated 300,000 deaths from Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) annually in the U.S. The COVID-19 Setting is rampant with patient instability and obstacles that make timely urine output monitoring difficult to combat AKI.
The Accuryn® Monitoring system overcomes standard, inadequate, draining systems, and helps prevent urine retention due to airlocks, and reduce false oliguria readings.
Implementing the AccuTab outside COVID-19 rooms, decreased PPE usage and improved their efficiency by having the data they needed outside the room.
