Protecting kids. Helping bedridden adults. Alerting caregivers. For peace of mind, you can trust the Code Blue Bed Wetting Alarm Kit from GIVER™
In the U.S., about 5 to 7 million children aged 6 years or older suffer from primary nocturnal enuresis also called nighttime bed-wetting or the involuntary loss of urine at night when they could reasonably be expected to stay dry.
According to an NIH article, enuresis alarms are the most commonly prescribed conditioning regime recommended by the medical community for correction of nocturnal enuresis.** GIVER™ Code Blue alarms are not only part of a caregiver solution for adolescent bed wetting, but they're equally applicable as part of a patient dignity management plan to make sure that your non-ambulatory patients are comfortable, dry and well cared for. The same quality of care used in hospitals and care facilities nationwide is now available for home caregiver use.
The same Nocturnal Enuresis Caregiver Bed Wetting Urine Alarm Sensor Pad Mat Kits that work for kids also work for non-ambulatory patients of all ages where liquid bed detection is part of the caregiver tools. GIVER™ Code Blue products focus on patient dignity and caregiver assistance. This alarm alerts caregivers the moment accidents happen, allowing for instant response to minimize patient contact time with the urine. No longer do patients have to embarrassingly alert staff themselves or worse - ignore it completely until noticed.
The GIVER™ Code Blue nocturnal enuresis bed wetting urine alarm sensor pad is coated with a thin layer of plastic, making the pad suitable for use after use. In the event that the pad gets soiled, simply disconnect it from the alarm for cleaning. Spray the pad with an disinfectant spray or use a disinfectant wipe to rub down the entire pad and allow the pad to completely air dry. Please note that by definition, the pad is extremely sensitive to even a single drop of liquid (as you would want it to be!) so ensure the pad is completely dry before placing it in use again.
The pad slips comfortably underneath the bottom bed sheet and the soft flexible plastic makes the sensor pad unnoticeable by the user. The pad attaches to the alarm by a single cord. In the event that the patient is prone to night sweats, putting one additional layer of fabric (such as a mattress pad) may help mitigate accidental alarms caused by sweat. Since liquid spreads, the placement of the pad isn't critical although centering the pad around the midsection of the prone position of the patient is optimal. The larger the pad, the more likely you are to hit the target. However, even the smallest pad properly placed will be effective in most situations.
