Bed Wetting Alarms
Brain is the most powerful organ of the body and has helped us rule over other species. It takes notes of things in a conscious or subconscious state that forms dreams. Now, there are few people who have bed-wetting problem. Mainly, this concerns old people (those above 70) or kids (those below 9). Of course, you may have urethral problems or enuresis. You may suffer from light to heavy incontinence or worse are immobile so you cannot move to the bathroom. In any case, you won’t like sleeping on soiled bed with soiled clothes. Therefore, bed-wetting alarms play a great role in countering that. Incontinence bed wetting alarms come with sound and vibration instrument with wires attached to your pajama bottom or your brief. The alarm goes as soon as you wet your brief and bed and the care giver knows you need to have the clothes changed. It is better to use absorbent bed wetting sheets over the mattress in such case that transmits urine into its core (micro-beads present there are heavily absorbent and polymers suppress urinary odor). Some adult bed wetting products come with a sensational sensor pad that catches and reacts to wetness at the release of first few drops. Old people wake up on hearing the alarm and can resume urination in bathroom. It also slowly engenders the kids not to wet the bed, as they are better in acquiring reflex. People should also do Kegel exercises to strengthen penile muscles and gain some control over the sphincter. A unique exercise is to overload oneself at day time with liquid (water preferably) and trying to suppress urinary urge for as long as he can. This helps in reducing bed wetting tendency. Another method is to change the alarm times and inculcate the habit in people to urinate when the alarm goes on. Different alarm times will make the subconscious confused, bed wetting will not be a problem any longer. Bed wetting is a problem even with otherwise healthy fellows. In earlier days, girls suffering from the problem were placed naked over an oven and the emerging fumes will help in eradicating the problem. It was a bit disconcerting, so thankfully, adult bed-wetting products have put ancient ideas and actions to a rest. In case bed wetting is caused by a serious problem such as Diabetes or renal problem, alarm may not be of great help and using a catheter is the preferred venture. However, bet wetting alarms are known to have shown great and repeated success stories. In case a person suffers from incontinence, he can also use male external catheters or absorbent pads on his groins for ensuring dry groin area. Bed wetting products of the alarm variety are only induced because they don’t make any insertion into the body. It must however be mentioned that attaching the wire to brief creates a natural pressure on the mind that the patient is suspected to again do bed wetting. This can of course affect his natural sleep. Patients ambulate quickly when they have proper sleep and so alarms are not the best idea during peak ambulation time. Vibration or sensor pads are preferred as they indicate wetness to the caregiver, who can remove the brief by tearing the seams and re-positioning it without necessarily waking the patient. His therapy bed should be ventilated enough and accord no friction and sustained pressure on the body. Otherwise, bed-ridden patients are susceptible to bed sores. Yes, incontinence bed-wetting alarms do show some positive results when the patient suffers from light incontinence and has some control over their sphincters. You should of course get bed wetting products from reputed stores and online portals for guaranteed quality. The wires should not be sharp and be properly insulated so there is no electrical shock to the sleeping patient. Remember, there are cases when indwelling catheter or intermittent catheter gives better results and should be resorted to instead of bed wetting alarms.
