In patients who are treated in the intensive care unit (ICU), an accurate fluid balance is an important tool to assess their hydration status. In most ICUs, intake of fluid is monitored precisely by sophisticated volumetric infusion and feeding pumps.
Conventional urinary output measurement with ordinary urine-meters constitutes a simple and accurate method for measuring urine volume in the ICU.
