1. Pull hard on the sensor so that it separates from the head of your pH Meter.

2. Unscrew the old sensor from cup "C".

3. Pour the contents of a fresh bottle of calibration solution into cup "C".

4. Insert the new sensor into the calibration solution and screw it into beaker "C". Remember that at least 8 hours must elapse before it can be used (first time only).

What is urinary pH?

Urinary pH is an indicator of the acidity or alkalinity of urine and provides information about the general state of health of our body. The average pH value is around 6.2. However, due to its oscillating behaviour, it can range from 4.5 to 8, depending largely on diet, waste products, metabolic disturbances, and other causes.

How is urinary pH currently monitored?

Apart from the pH Meter, there are two options for monitoring urinary pH: by test strip or by laboratory pH meter. The former are widely questioned by the medical community for their low accuracy and fiability for clinical decision making; while the latter lacks the portability necessary for urinary pH measurement to be made in freshly voided urine, which has physiological value.

How can urinary pH affect kidney stone formation?

• If crystals are present in the urine and the urinary pH is above 6.2, the conditions are right for the formation of infectious or calcium phosphate or calcium phosphate-induced calcium oxalate stones.

• If crystals are present in the urine and the urinary pH is below 5.5, conditions are suitable for the formation of cystine or uric acid or uric acid-induced calcium oxalate stones.

• On certain occasions, or without pH alteration, the simple existence of crystals and the lack of physiological inhibitors of this crystallisation can favour the formation of kidney stones.

Correct control of urinary pH will reduce the risk of kidney stone formation.

How can urinary pH affect urinary catheters and urinary catheters?

After placement of a urinary catheter or double j catheter, urinary tract infection tends to occur and can lead in most cases to alkaline urine.

If the infection persists due to, among other things, the presence of crystals in the urine and an alkaline pH, it may lead to calcification of the catheter or catheter, even causing blockage and in some cases making it difficult to remove.
