What is A Uroflow
More than 12 million new BPH patients are diagnosed annually, putting the U.S. health system under stress.
More than 40 millions of Americans experience lower
urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) including urinary
incontinence, urinary frequency, urgency, nocturia,
bladder pain and voiding difficulties.
Doctors use uroflometry (uroflow tests) to measure the amount of urine
voided and the speed of urination. Uroflometry can help your doctor
identify the causes of certain urinary difficulties and early detection of chronic urinary disease, including:
The uroflowmeter calculates the amount of urine you pass, the flow rate in
milliliters per second, and the length of time it takes to empty your bladder
completly. It will record this information in a chart.
