Urine Collection Cup Will have Starring Role At Oscars⁠
At the Academy Awards in February, some big Hollywood stars are going to receive a novel urine collection device in their Oscars gift bags.⁠
Yes, you read that correctly. ⁠
The modified urine cups are going into the gift bags of this year's 25 acting and directing nominees. ⁠
The device, a modified plastic cone that captures only the middle of the urine stream in a standard 10- or 30-mL tube, is called the Peezy Midstream. ⁠
It is claimed to fix many of the problems with #UTI testing. But physicians say the research behind the device may not yet have caught up with the promotion.⁠
Without a clean sample providers may have to reorder tests, or they may receive inaccurate results that lead to improper treatment, delayed treatment, or the prescribing of unnecessary antibiotics, the company says. ⁠
Not all physicians are convinced this problem is widespread though. ⁠
"Medically speaking, I'm not convinced we have the problem that's being cited, nor is this device the answer to the purported problem being cited by the manufacturer," said Richard Colgan, MD, professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore.⁠
Whatever the answer they're in the gift bag. Would you be excited to receive it in YOUR gift bag?⁠
