catheter associated UTI
- A catheter associated urinary tract infection (UTI) is an inflammation or infection of the bladder. This type of UTI is caused by using a urinary catheter. A urinary catheter is a thin tube that is placed through the urethra to drain urine from the bladder.
asymptomatic bacteriuria
- Asymptomatic bacteruiria is the presence of bacteria in the urine, without any symptoms.
decreased urination
- Decreased urination is often caused by dehydration, but sometimes it may indicate serious disease.
blood in the urine
- Blood in the urine can be visible, or it may only be noticed when the urine is tested.
kidney removal
- Kidney removal, or nephrectomy, is a surgery to remove a diseased or damaged kidney.
blood in the semen
- Blood in the semen is uncommon. Seeing it can make people quite anxious, but it is rarely serious.
acid phosphatase test
- The acid phosphatase test measures the level of acid phosphatase in the blood. Acid phosphatase is an enzyme found in the prostate gland, semen, liver, spleen, blood cells, and bone marrow. If these organs and tissues are not functioning right, they may release acid phosphatase into the bloodstream.
- A chill is a sensation of cold. When chills occur at an unexpected time, they may be due to a fever-causing illness.

urinary incontinence
- Urinary incontinence is the uncontrollable loss of urine. The six main types of urinary incontinence are: urge incontinence, which is an urgent need to urinate followed by urine leakage stress incontinence, which is the leakage of urine when laughing, coughing, sneezing, or lifting heavy objects overflow incontinence, which occurs when small amounts of urine leak from a full bladder total incontinence, or a constant dripping of urine day and night psychological incontinence, which has an emotional rather than a physical cause mixed incontinence, which is a mixture of the causes listedWhat is going on in the body?
analgesic nephropathy
- Analgesic nephropathy refers to kidney damage caused by regular, long-term use of analgesics. Short-term, occasional use of these medications does not seem to cause kidney damage.
spinal cord injury
- Spinal cord trauma is an injury to the spinal cord. The spinal cord is the part of the nervous system that runs down from the brain through a canal in the spine. It sends signals between the nerves in the body, called the peripheral nerves, and the brain. Signals from sensations like pain or position are sent up the peripheral nerves from organs like skin and muscle. Commands to move the body are known as motor impulses. These impulses begin in the brain and travel down the spinal cord. They then travel through the peripheral nerves into tissues such as muscle to produce movement. When signals travel to or from the brain, they cross over to the other side. The left side of the brain receives sensation from, and sends motor signals to, the right side of the body and vice versa.
interstitial cystitis
- Interstitial cystitis is a term that refers to a type of chronic inflammation of the bladder of unknown cause.
urine protein
- Normal body temperature is often defined as 37 degrees Celsius (C). Whenever a person is ill or feels hot or cold to the touch, it is important to take their temperature. If a doctor is called during an illness, he or she will often ask for the temperature of the ill person.
urethral stricture
- A urethral stricture is a scar in or around the urethra, which is the tube that drains urine from the bladder. A stricture can block the flow of urine.
- Lithotripsy is a procedure used to break kidney stones or bladder stones into small pieces. That makes it easier to pass them in the urine. Renal stones, a term that includes both kidney and bladder stones, are small, hard mineral deposits that build up in the urinary tract. These stones are usually about the size of a pea. Most kidney stones pass through the ureters, the tubes leading from the kidneys to the bladder, into the bladder. But sometimes stones get stuck in the ureter or bladder and cause a painful obstruction. Obstruction can lead to infection, and serious kidney damage can result.
anaerobic bacteria, blood culture for
- A test called a blood culture is done to see if there is an infection of the blood. There are different types of blood culture tests. One of these tests checks for a type of organism called anaerobic bacteria.
urge incontinence
- Urge incontinence is an urgent desire to urinate followed by uncontrolled loss of urine.
