Vous pourrez lire des directives étape par étape pour effectuer un test de résidus post-mictionnels.</p><h2>Qu’est-ce qu’une mesure de résidus post-mictionnels?</h2> <p>Mesurer le volume des résidus post-mictionnels a pour objectif de voir si la vessie de votre enfant se vide bien après une opération. Le terme « post-mictionnel » signifie après avoir uriné (fait pipi). Le terme « résidus » signifie « ce qu’il reste ». Les résidus post-mictionnels sont donc la quantité d’urine qui demeure dans la vessie après que votre enfant a fini d’uriner.</p> <p>Ces directives expliquent comment vérifier les résidus post-mictionnels à la maison. Elles s’appliquent à un enfant qui porte un cathéter sus-pubien.</p> <p>Chaque fois que votre enfant urine, vous devrez mesurer la quantité d’urine que votre enfant évacue. Quand il aura fini, vous devrez aussi retirer l’urine qui demeure dans la vessie avec un cathéter et mesurer cette quantité également. </p> <p>On recommande habituellement de le faire chaque fois que votre enfant urine jusqu’à sa prochaine visite en clinique. Selon les mesures, le cathéter sus-pubien pourrait être retiré pendant la visite.</p><h2>À retenir</h2> <ul><li>Le test de résidu post-mictionnel évalue si un enfant vide bien sa vessie après une opération lorsqu’il porte un cathéter sus-pubien.</li><li>Le test mesure la quantité d’urine que votre enfant évacue, puis la quantité d’urine qui reste dans la vessie est mesurée à l’aide du cathéter sus-pubien.</li><li>Vous devrez effectuer ces mesures chaque fois que votre enfant urinera jusqu’à sa prochaine visite à la clinique.</li></ul><h2>Directives étape par étape pour le test de résidus post-mictionnels</h2><p>Avant de commencer, vous devez rassembler le matériel suivant :</p><ul><li>un « chapeau » pour mesurer l’urine dans la cuvette des toilettes.
