North Bristol NHS Trust – New Biocon 700 Bladder Scanner

The Accident & Emergency Team at Southmead Hospital has been presented with a brand new Cubescan Biocon 700 Bladder Scanner, supplied by de Smit Medical Systems, courtesy of the Bristol Area Cardiac Support Group.

The scanner enables staff to closely monitor and assess patients with cardiac failure to see if they have urine retention. Previously, as a precaution, if staff were concerned patients would be catheterised which is an invasive, and sometimes, painful procedure.
