Urine flow measurement for the prevention of acute kidney failure

Continuous urine flow measurement with high-precision fluid flow sensors over an extended period of time enables early detection of acute kidney failure in critically ill patients in intensive care.

Automatic measurement of urine flow with Sensirion's sensor technology reduces the workload of ICU staff, ensures more reliable diagnosis of ANV and thus improves patient safety.
