Importance of Urology Videos

Overview

Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on surgical and medical diseases and also deals with the diagnoses, treatment, and management of the female urinary tract system and male reproductive system. Urology deals with several organs in the body such as:

  • Importance of Urology VideosThe bladder
  • Kidneys
  • Adrenal glands
  • Ureters
  • Urethra
  • Testes
  • Epididymis
  • Vas deferens
  • Seminal Vesicles
  • Prostate gland
  • Penis

The urinary and reproductive tracts are closely linked, and disorders of one often affect the other. Thus, a major spectrum of the conditions managed in urology exists under the domain of genitourinary disorders. Urology combines the management of medical or non-surgical conditions, such as urinary tract infections and benign prostatic hyperplasia, with the management of surgical conditions such as bladder or prostate cancer, kidney stones, congenital abnormalities, traumatic injury, and stress incontinence.

Healthcare practitioners who specialize in urology are known as urologists. It is often seen that a urinary tract infection, commonly known as UTI, is one of the most common urinary problems and is an infection that occurs in the urinary tract. This infection is most often caused by microbes such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses and involves the kidneys, ureters, urethra, or bladder. Symptoms that can help in recognizing a urinary tract infection are as follows:

  • A frequent urge to urinate
  • Foul-smelling urine
  • Pain or burning sensation while you urinate
  • Cloudy, dark, or bloody urine
  • Fever or chills
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Muscle aches
  • Vomiting
  • Pelvic pain in women, particularly in the center of the pelvis and the area around the pubic bone.
  • Pressure or cramping in the lower back or the lower abdomen.

As we know that urinary problems often occur when the urinary tract is infected by microbes such as fungi, bacteria, or viruses. Here are a few causes of urinary problems:

  • A weak immune system
  • An enlarged prostate in men
  • Using a contraceptive diaphragm or condoms that are coated in spermicide.
  • Diabetes
  • Conditions like kidney stones obstruct the urinary tract.

It is often seen that patients collect information about their issues through the internet which results in lethal outcomes since the information has no basis whatsoever. Providing Health, disease or any medical treatment-related information is the responsibility of a doctor, to ensure that the patient understands what the procedure is for and the patient agrees to it. The hindrance of providing clear information can easily be solved via high-quality Videos and Animations which acts as a common bridge between a doctor and their patients. It is proven that Visuals are a more efficient way to convey health or disease-related information by a practitioner to their patients.

What is the importance of Urology Videos?

A Urologist is a specialist with excellence in the diagnosis, treatment, and proper functioning of the female urinary tract system and male reproductive system. Not only do urologists have expertise on diseases that specifically affect the Female urinary tract, but they’re also very knowledgeable about male reproductive issues or dysfunction that can affect other parts of the body.

While consultation, it is often seen that the practitioner and the patient tend to be not on the same page, meaning the information that the practitioner provides is often misunderstood by the patients which creates a knowledge barrier between the both.

Many conditions require a urologist who suggests various procedures to treat the same and surgeries if required. Some of the common conditions are as follows:

  1. Conditions
    • Urinary Incontinence – Urinary incontinence is a condition in which a person loses his bladder control. While it’s not harmful to the heath, it’s burdensome to daily life and can lead to embarrassing moments. There are a variety of things that cause urinary incontinence, some of them are:
      1. diabetes
      2. childbirth
  • weakened bladder muscles or sphincter muscles
  1. spinal cord injury
  2. certain diseases
  3. severe constipation.
  • Overactive Bladder – it occurs when the bladder can’t store urine properly and leads to an involuntary loss of urine due to an intense and sudden urge to urinate. The muscles of the bladder may start to contract involuntarily, almost like spasms. There are a few causes of overactive bladder, including neurological disorders, diabetes, UTIs, bladder stones, tumors, or simply getting older. The best ways to prevent overactive bladder include staying active, maintaining a healthy weight, and taking a proactive approach to managing chronic conditions like diabetes.
  • Urinary Tract Infection – Urinary tract infections are the most common type of urologic problem and occur much more frequently in women. The main symptom of UTI is a burning sensation or feeling a frequent need to urinate. To properly diagnose a UTI, a urine culture is done by the doctor. It is important to treat UTIs as soon as possible as it increases the chance of getting infected in the kidneys.
  • Kidney or Ureteral Stone – Kidney stones and ureteral stones occur when crystal-like particles in the urine develop and small particles grow around the crystals. The stones get blocked in the urinary tract system and make it painful to urinate. While most stones can be passed naturally, larger stones often require surgery or specific procedures to break them.
  • Female Specific Urology Problems – Women have a naturally shorter urethra, which contributes to an increase in the frequency of urological problems. In addition to increased urinary tract infections, women are prone to a few specific urological problems.
  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia – Benign prostatic hyperplasia or also known as enlarged prostate, commonly occurs in older men and while it’s not directly related to prostate cancer, it still means that the prostate gland has increased in its size. Men are at an increased risk for BPH if they have a family history, erectile dysfunction, or other health conditions. The increase in size exerts extra pressure on the urethra, which leads to a more intense need to urinate frequently. If emptying the bladder is not achieved, a person might be at a risk for developing urinary tract infections. The best way to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia is through medications, consistent monitoring, and, depending on the severity, surgery.

Consultation done via urology videos or animations about various conditions increases patient engagement and knowledge about what can be expected during a medical procedure. Patients feel embarrassed about asking questions like how the procedure will be done, what it will look like, what are the precautions to be taken, why medicine has been prescribed, what side effects to look out for, and what to do if you are experiencing problems. At the time of consultation, important and yet complex medical-related information may take time to understand fully, even for patients with good health literacy.

Good communication with a practitioner makes it more understandable for patients to benefit from their treatment and helps to ensure the best-suited treatment for them which can be done by consulting via urology education videos.
