It measures:</p><ul><li>what is happening to your <a href="https://pie.med.utoronto.ca/htbw/module.html?module=bladder-child">bladder as it is filling</a> </li><li>how much urine the bladder can hold </li><li>bladder sensation (feeling) </li><li>changes in bladder pressure </li><li>how much stretch (contractility) the bladder has while filling </li></ul><p>The information on this page will help you and your child get ready for the procedure. After reading it, please explain it to your child, using words they can understand. If you have questions, please speak with your child's doctor or the urodynamics nurse. </p> <figure><span class="asset-image-title">Urinary system (female)</span><img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/Urinary_female_MED_ILL_EN.jpg" alt="" /> </figure><h2>Key points</h2> <ul> <li>A full urodynamics procedure tests how well your child's bladder is working. </li> <li>The test will be less uncomfortable if your child is relaxed. To make sure your child is comfortable during the test, tell them what to expect and help them practice relaxation exercises. </li> <li>If your child has a urinary tract infection, you will need to reschedule the test. </li> <li>If your child feels stinging or burning for more than 48 hours after the test or your child develops a fever, contact your family doctor. </li> </ul><h2>Your child's appointment</h2> <p>Please arrive 15 minutes before the time of your child's appointment. The procedure will take about 1.5 hours (90 minutes).</p><h2>What happens during the test</h2> <p>During the procedure, a nurse will put a small tube called a urinary catheter into your child's urethra (urinary passage). Your child's bladder will be filled with water through this tube. This tube also monitors pressure in the bladder. </p> <p>Another small tube will be put into your child's rectum. This measures rectal pressure during the test. The rectum pushes on the bladder and this can affect bladder pressure.</p> <p>Having these tubes inserted can be uncomfortable, but it should not hurt. The nurses are very experienced and will help your child relax during the test. </p> <p>Your child will also have stickers called electrodes gently stuck to the buttocks and hip. The electrodes let us assess your child's pelvic floor muscles when the bladder is being filled.</p> <p>During the test, your child may have a feeling of fullness or pressure, similar to what they would feel before urinating with a full bladder. There may be some discomfort when the urinary and rectal tubes are put in and taken out. Your child may have the urge to urinate or have a bowel movement. These feelings will be less if your child is more relaxed. You or the child life specialist can help your child with the relaxation strategies you practiced. </p> <h3>Sedation</h3> <p>Some children may need mild sedation to help them relax and have a positive experience during the test.</p><h2>After the test</h2> <p>Your child may feel stinging or burning when urinating the first few times after the test. Encourage your child to drink a lot after the test. If the discomfort lasts for more than 48 hours (two days) or your child develops a fever, contact your family doctor. </p><h2>Helping your child get ready for the test</h2> <p>The test will be easier and less uncomfortable if your child is relaxed. Before you come to the hospital, explain to your child what will happen. You can help practice relaxing by having your child breathe in and out with slow, deep breaths. </p> <p>To make your child feel more comfortable during the test, please bring their favourite toy, a movie or books. Babies can have a pacifier or a bottle during the test.</p> <p>A <a href="/Article?contentid=1153&language=English">child life specialist</a> can help your child get ready for the test by teaching your child to relax and distract themselves. If you and your child would like to meet with a child life specialist, please ask. </p> <h2>Before the test</h2> <p>Your child can eat and drink as usual before the test.</p> <p>If possible, please encourage your child to have a bowel movement on the morning of the test. If your child follows a bowel routine, please do this the evening before or the morning of the test. </p> <p>If your child has a heart condition, please check with your family doctor to see if your child will need antibiotics before the test. If antibiotics are needed, your family doctor will write a prescription. </p> <p>Please do not use lotion on your child's skin on the day of the test.</p> <h3>Urinary tract infection</h3> <p>Please be aware that the test will not be done if your child has a urinary tract infection and is showing symptoms. Signs and symptoms of a urinary tract infection include: </p> <ul> <li>burning or stinging with urination </li> <li>foul-smelling or cloudy urine </li> <li>abdominal (belly) pain </li> <li><a href="/Article?contentid=30&language=English">fever</a></li> <li>blood in the urine </li> </ul> <p>If your child has any of these symptoms, please go to your family doctor to check for a urinary tract infection. If your child has an infection, please call to reschedule your appointment. </p><h2>At SickKids</h2> <p>If your child has been to the hospital before, go directly to 5D. Please check in with the receptionist at the front desk on 5D to register.</p> <p>If this is your first visit to the hospital, please check in at the registration desk on the main floor before coming to 5D. When you arrive on 5D, you will need to check in with the receptionist at the front desk.</p> <p>If you have questions or concerns about this test, please contact the urodynamics nurse by calling the urology clinic at 416-813-6661.</p>

Les tests mesurent :</p> <ul> <li>ce qui se passe dans la vessie de votre enfant quand elle se remplit;</li> <li>la quantité d’urine que la vessie peut contenir;</li> <li>la sensation associée à la vessie;</li> <li>les changements de pression dans la vessie;</li> <li>l’étirement (contractilité) de la vessie quand elle se remplit. </li> </ul> <p>Les renseignements de cette page vous aideront ainsi que votre enfant à vous préparer pour l’intervention. Après l’avoir lue, expliquez-la à votre enfant en vous servant de mots qu’il peut comprendre. Si vous avez des questions, parlez-en au médecin de votre enfant ou à l’infirmier de dynamique urinaire. </p> <figure> <span class="asset-image-title">Système urinaire (féminin)</span> <img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/Urinary_female_MED_ILL_FR.jpg" /> </figure><h2>À retenir</h2> <ul> <li>Des tests de dynamique urinaire complets montrent le fonctionnement de la vessie de votre enfant.</li> <li>Le test sera moins inconfortable si votre enfant est détendu. Pour faire en sorte que l’enfant soit détendu pendant le test, dites-lui à quoi s’attendre et aidez-le à s’exercer à relaxer.</li> <li>Si votre enfant a une infection urinaire, vous devrez reporter le test.</li> <li>Si votre enfant ressent un pincement ou une sensation de brûlure plus de 48 heures après le test, ou s’il a de la fièvre, communiquez avec votre médecin de famille.</li> </ul><h2>Le rendez-vous de votre enfant</h2> <p>Arrivez 15 minutes avant le rendez-vous. La procédure pendra environ une heure et demie (90 minutes).</p><h2>Ce qui se passe pendant le test</h2> <p>Pendant l’intervention, un infirmier placera un petit tube appelé cathéter urinaire dans l’urètre de votre enfant (canal par où s'évacue l’urine). La vessie de votre enfant sera remplie d’eau au moyen de ce tube. Cela permet aussi de mesurer la pression dans la vessie.</p> <p>Un autre petit tube sera inséré dans le rectum de votre enfant. Cela mesure la pression rectale pendant le test. Le rectum pousse en effet sur la vessie, ce qui peut en modifier la pression.</p> <p>L’insertion de ces tubes peut être inconfortable, mais elle ne devrait pas être douloureuse. </p> <p>Les infirmiers sont très expérimentes et aideront votre enfant à se détendre pendant le test.</p> <p>On collera aussi des timbres appelés électrodes sur les fesses et les hanches de votre enfant. Les électrodes permettent d’évaluer la force des muscles du pelvis pendant que la vessie se remplit.</p> <p>Pendant le test, votre enfant pourrait avoir la sensation d'être « plein » ou ressentir une sensation de pression, semblable à la sensation d’une vessie pleine. Il pourrait ressentir un inconfort quand les tubes urinaire et rectal seront retirés. Votre enfant pourrait avoir envie d’uriner ou d’aller à la selle. Ces sensations seront amoindries si votre enfant est détendu. L'éducateur en milieu pédiatrique ou vous-mêmes pouvez aider votre enfant au moyen des stratégies de relaxation que vous avez répétées.</p> <h3>Sédation</h3> <p>Certains enfants auront besoin d’un léger sédatif pour relaxer et avoir une meilleure expérience pendant le test.</p><h2>Après le test</h2> <p>Votre enfant pourrait ressentir un pincement ou une sensation de brûlure quand il urinera pour les premières fois après le test. Encouragez votre enfant à boire beaucoup après le test. Si l’inconfort dure plus de 48 heures (deux jours), ou si votre enfant a de la fièvre, communiquez avec votre médecin de famille. </p><h2>Aider votre enfant à se préparer pour le test</h2> <p>Le test sera plus facile et moins inconfortable si votre enfant est détendu. Avant de venir à l’hôpital, expliquez à votre enfant ce qui se passera. Vous pouvez vous exercer à vous détendre en demandant à votre enfant d’inspirer et d’expirer lentement et profondément.</p> <p>Pour rendre votre enfant plus confortable pendant le test, vous pouvez lui apporter son jouet préféré, un film ou des livres. Les bébés peuvent avoir une suce ou un biberon pendant le test.</p> <p>Un spécialiste des enfants peut vous aider à préparer votre enfant pour le test en lui enseignant à se détendre et à se distraire. Si votre enfant et vous voulez rencontrer un spécialiste, vous n’avez qu’à le demander.</p> <h2>Avant l'examen</h2> <p>Votre enfant peut manger et boire comme à l’habitude avant le test.</p> <p>Dans la mesure du possible, encouragez votre enfant à aller à la selle avant le test. Si votre enfant suit un horaire, il doit aller à la selle la veille au soir ou le matin de l'examen.</p> <p>Si votre enfant a une maladie cardiaque, veuillez demander à votre médecin de famille si votre enfant aura besoin d’antibiotiques avant le test. Si c’est le cas, votre médecin de famille vous donnera une prescription.</p> <p>N’appliquez pas de lotion sur la peau de votre enfant le jour du test.</p> <h3>Infection urinaire</h3> <p>Veuillez noter que le test n’aura pas lieu si votre enfant a une infection urinaire et s’il a des symptômes. Voici les signes et symptômes d’une infection :</p> <ul> <li>brûlement ou pincement au moment de la miction;</li> <li>urine trouble ou nauséabonde;</li> <li>douleur abdominale (ventre);</li> <li>fièvre;</li> <li>sang dans les urines. </li> </ul> <p>Si votre enfant présente l’un ou l’autre de ces symptômes, rendez-vous chez votre médecin de famille. Si votre enfant a une infection, veuillez appeler pour reporter le rendez-vous. </p><h2>À l'hôpital SickKids</h2> <p>Si votre enfant est déjà venu à l’hôpital, rendez-vous directement au département 5D. Enregistrez-vous à la réception auprès de la réceptionniste du 5D.</p> <p>Si c’est votre première visite à l’hôpital, enregistrez-vous à la réception de l’étage principal avant de venir au 5D. Quand vous arriverez au 5D, enregistrez-vous à la réception auprès de la réceptionniste du 5D.</p> <p>Si vous avez des questions au sujet du test, communiquez avec l’infirmier de l’unité de dynamique urinaire en appelant la clinique d’urologie, au 416-813-6661.</p>
