  Purpose

This will be a descriptive study measuring the post—void residual of patients in the third trimester and postpartum. Also, bladder scan values will be compared to the amount of urine obtained from a Foley catheter to determine the accuracy of the bladder scanner in the third trimester and postpartum.

Further study details as provided by West Virginia University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Define normal post-void residual volume in third trimester pregnancy and post-partum. [ Time Frame: 12-24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Calculate the validity of measurements form the bladder scanner ultrasound for bladder volumes during the third trimester of pregnancy and post-partum. [ Time Frame: 12-24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 35
Study Start Date: October 2008
Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
Bladder Scan Group
Patients who agree to enroll in the trial and allow their known bladder volumes and residual bladder volumes to be measured by actual volumes retrograde instilled, and also by bladder scanner ultrasound.
