Now this slide, I listed the five things
that should not be present in your urine.
I'm going to give you two categories
to loop them in,
but let's go through the five nitrites
ketones, leukocyte, ester, ace.
That's an enzyme produced by leukocytes
or white cells,
bacteria or yeast.
that's in a category all by itself.
If this is a diabetic client,
we've got a problem.
This is they're ripping through
fat for energy
instead of being able
to use the glucose in their body.
So that's its own category.
But these other four nitrites
leukocyte esterase bacteria
and yeast are all four signs that we've
got a problem with a possible infection.
So we definitely need
a microscopic analysis.
not usually a big fan of multiple lists,
but these are five things
you need to know.
I'll walk you through each one, but
these are really important that you know
what each one of these five things
can tell you about your patient's health.
