Royal Bahrain Hospital has the latest Urodynamic Testing Machine. This machine allows doctors to test how well the bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine.
Urodynamic testing is a minimally invasive test. This test helps understand the behavior of a person’s bladder. It will look at how well the bladder stores urine and how it gets rid of it. The test can help find out what is causing bladder problems. These problems include urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is when urine leaks out of the bladder unintentionally. This can happen when a person coughs, sneezes, laughs or exercises. Meanwhile urgency incontinence when you have a strong, sudden urge to pass urine but can’t get to the toilet in time or in some cases a mix of both types of incontinence. Urodynamic testing can help to find out a weak bladder in diabetic patients. This machine at Royal Bahrain Hospital will be very helpful to the department and community.
