? Crede' of the Bladder

  1. I recently went out to a home vent case and the plan of treatment included a procedure that I have never heard of and I would like to know if any of you have experience with this.

    It was explained to me that if I push manually on the bladder area that it will expell urine. This patient is semicomatose, & experiences no pain during this procedure. She is place on the bedapin then the crede procedure. I have tries to search this on line and can't find any information on this procedure.

    Please reply if you know anything related to this.

    Thank you,

    Hello Callinurse:
    It is a method used for removing urine through a flaccid or atonic bladder, one without muscle tone. Developed by a physician named Crede, I believe.
    Google or go to ask.com and type in Crede Method

    It's not a painful procedure. If you place your fingertips above the level of the pubic bone and massage inward and down, urine will drain out. I learned to do that to empty a bladder during catheterization. Try it on yourself when you urinate, that will give you an idea of what you need to do.
