Objectives To evaluate the effects of Q-syte separating film needleless closed transfusion connector in flushing chamber of three-cavity urethral catheter.Methods To retrospectively analyze the patients who underwent transurethral resection of bladder tumor for non muscle-invasive bladder cancer from January 2015 to July 2016 in Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University. After terminating the continuous bladder irrigation, the observed group used Q-syte separating film needleless closed transfusion connector to seal the flushing chamber of three-cavity urethral catheter, and control group used conditional approach to connect drainage bag. The degree of comfort and satisfaction of patients, urinary tract infection, time of stopping bladder irrigation and bladder perfusion time between two groups were assessed.Results A total of 88 patients were included involving 63 (72%) males and 25 (28%) females with a mean age of 60.2±4.7 years. There were no significant differences between two groups in age, gender, BMI, and complications (P>0.05). Compared to control group, case group had higher level of comfort degree (mild discomfort: 86.4% vs. 25.0%, P<0.001; moderate discomfort: 13.6% vs. 52.3%, P<0.001; severe discomfort: 0.0% vs. 22.7%, P=0.001), satisfaction degree (97.9±2.1 vs. 84.5±3.9, P<0.001), and lower rates of urinary tract infection (11.4% vs. 29.5%, P=0.034). In addition, the case group spent shorter time in terminating bladder irrigation (50.48±1.78 vs. 207.74±5.41, P<0.001) and bladder perfusion (141.47±3.25 vs. 205.35±5.17, P<0.001). All differences were statistical significance.Conclusions Application of Q-syte separating film needleless closed transfusion connector for sealing flushing chamber of three-cavity urethral catheter after continuous bladder irrigation could promote the degree of comfort and satisfaction of patients, and decrease the rate of urinary tract infection, as well as the working efficiency of health care professionals.
