​Intra-abdominal Pressure monitoring

Clinical evidence suggests that intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) will become a vital sign in critical care​

Intra-abdominal Pressure Monitoring

Holtech Medical´s mission is to provide easy-to-use, safe, and cost effective products for IAP monitoring.

Our FoleyManometer LV monitoring kit is a surprisingly simple, reliable, and cost-effective clinical tool, providing a closed sterile circuit which connects between the patient´s Foley catheter and the urine collection device.​

Each IAP determination takes about 10-15 sec., and no subsequent correction of urine output is required.

FoleyManometer LV features:

  • Low bladder infusion volume (ref. 5)
  • IAP measurement time 10-15 sec.
  • Instant needle-free urine sampling
  • IAP range 0 - 40 mmHg

Urine drainage

The urine fills the Foley-Manometer and flows on to the urine collection device.​

Measure intra-versical pressure

The urine in the vertical manometer tube returns to the bladder when the vent clamp is opened. Hold the “0 mmHg” mark of the manometer tube at the midaxillary line/iliac crest, and read Pvesical at the position of the meniscus.​
