Welcome to MEDININA and Hemostick®


Hemostick® is a simple measuring instrument that can be used as a treatment and medical decision support for patients with microscopic haematuri. In Vårdhandboken, The Handbook for Healthcare based on the Swedish Health and Medical Service Act (HSL) and Social Services Act (SOL), you can read more (in Swedish only) about the recommendation how to use Hemostick® for classifying heamaturi. It also covers advise and measures on how to reduce and stop bleeding in the urinary tracts.

                                                                           Hemostick® facilitates graduating visible blood in the

                                                                           urine and communicating haematuri between care

                                                                           givers and patients. You will streamline the care taking

                                                                           of the patient and increase patient safety.

              

                                                                           In the past the assessments and classifications of color

                                                                           and consistence of haematuri was made only out of

                                                                           subjective criterias. A need to standardize the

                                                                           assessments of heamaturi has long existed. With

                                                                           Hemostick® you will make the assessments more

                                                                           objective and uncomplicated. It also helps you to

                                                                           roughly estimate the loss of blood in haemoglobin per

                                                                           litre urine.


Hemostick® has been developed by qualified nurses in cooperation with Karolinska University Hospital/Huddinge and Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.
