What causes fall injuries? A report by Bernar Bauschert
Why patients may faint when they have to urinate.
The patient lies in bed. She gets up and all of a sudden, blood rushes from within her head downward. Mainly to the legs. By now, the full bladder has compressed the circumjacent venous plexus. By urinating, the bladder collapses and the veins are filled with blood again.
Because the patient stands up at this point, even more blood rushes from within the head downward – now directly into the venous plexus around the bladder, which can lead to the patient fainting. The greatest danger is when the patient sits up after urinating. This danger is even greater for old people because the pumping capacity of the heart is weaker and therefore the loss of blood within the head cannot be easily compensated.
At the worst, the patients can actually feel the oncoming faint, then they fret causing the heart to pound, something that old age people’s hearts can hardly take. This can even lead to heart attack.
A further important observation connected to the fear of the bedpan is that the patients don’t drink enough liquid towards the evening because they try avoid the pot as much as they can.
Due to Pibella , patients can drink enough liquid and therefore they don’t try and stagger to the toilet too early and on their own in order to avoid using the bedpan. Along with its enormous efficiency, Pibella also helps to massively cut the costs of fall injuries.

Also at home, Pibella Comfort manages to prevent many falls!
