Male external urine management device that employs suction to divert urine output in real time.
Nurses know that indwelling urinary catheters such as Foley catheter are associated with high incidence of CAUTI, urethral damage and stenosis.
Are you looking for an external urine management device that is more versatile and easier to use than a condom catheter or a sheath catheter?
Condom catheters do not work on patients with a large abdominal pannus or retracted anatomy (penile shaft). External urine devices are not ‘closed’ management device and could cause spread of infections, IAD and medical device related pressure injuries (MDRPI).
QiVi – Male External urine management device (MEC) is a closed device, which employs suction to divert urine output in real-time. It provides 99.6% accurate output measurement, keeps the anatomy dry, and has a universal fit design – works even on retracted anatomy.
Nurses clip the hair follicles, clean the supra-pubic region, with a cleansing towelette provided in the device, and apply the adhesive around the base of the penile shaft and over the scrotum. Unlike wicking, absorbent material present in other external catheters, QiVi’s pouch is hydrophobic in nature and optimized for flow. Any urine that comes out of the urethral opening flows to a pre-determined area of the urine pouch.
The urine pouch has two suction tubes that divert all the fluid from the pouch in under 60 seconds. Since there is no wicking or absorbent material in the pouch, there is no volume loss (99.6% accurate output) and no risk of dermatitis or skin breakdown. The suction tubes also activate the flow of air inside the pouch, which helps in maintaining a micro-climate keeping the patient’s anatomy dry and comfortable.
