    urodynamics test
    spring1115 posted:
    I had a urodynamics test done but will not get results for a week, but i noticed in part of the test called uroflow my avearage was 3 and the highest was 6 does anyone know what that means?
    Diane K Newman, RN-C, MSN, ANP responded:
    Uroflow tests the quantity of urine passed per unit time (expressed in mL/sec). It measures voided urine volume and flow pattern (should be a smooth, bell-shaped curve). Poor bladder function with any obstruction to urine flow (when voiding) will cause a reduction in flow rate. Whether you flow results mean anything depends on your symptoms and whether you are a man or woman. Speak with the doctor who did the tests.
