Potrero Medical, a San Francisco firm, landed FDA clearance for its Accuryn monitor that uses a sensor-equipped catheter to provide real time data on patient urine output, intra-abdominal pressure, and temperature. Filtering the intra-abdominal pressure data can provide the patient’s heart rate, respiratory rate, and relative stroke volume.

Potrero-Medical-AccurynThe system features automatic clearing of the drain line to prevent backups and the associated catheter-borne urinary tract infections, as well as reduce the workload on nurses.

The device also connects to in-hospital electronic medical records systems to store data on every patient.

Some of the features according to the product page:

  • Urimeter with proprietary airlock-prevention technology overcomes urine drainage issues and provides accurate, real-time continuous urine output measurement
  • Designed to  decrease urinary retention and suction trauma – known risk factors for Catheter associated urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI)
  • EMR Integration, improves system-wide access to trending data, or can be used as a stand-alone critical care monitor outside the ICU
  • Machine-learning algorithms continuously monitor and trend measurements, enabling potential early detection of sepsis, acute kidney injury & cardiac difficulty.
