Researchers evaluate noninvasive clean-catch urine method in infants

AAP SmartBrief | Aug 22, 2016

A study in Pediatrics found that a novel noninvasive bladder stimulation method effectively obtained clean-catch urine in 49% of babies, with a median time of 45 seconds, with those ages 0 to 29 days, 30 to 59 days, and 60 to 89 days having odds ratios of technique success of 4.3, 3.2 and 4.44, respectively, compared with those older than 89 days. The findings, based on data involving 126 infants younger than 6 months, also showed a 16% contamination rate among those who underwent the CCU technique, compared with 6% among those who received the invasive method.
