Children's Palliative Care in Africa

This chapter provides an assessment of the urinary system, urinary retention, catheterization in children, irritable bladder, and haematuria. Urinary symptoms tend to come together in groups and diagnosis is usually made on history alone. Most urinary symptoms are exacerbated and can be caused by anxiety. Catheterization may be necessary, but can be traumatic. The use of special techniques and drugs can reduce this trauma.

Keywords:   catheterization, urinary system, irritable bladder, haematuria
