Dataset Overview

Study Purpose: This data was collected while testing bladder function using the Urological Monitor of Conscious Activity (UroMOCA) bladder sensor device. The dataset is for 2 acute pigs implanted with a wireless device (UroMOCA). The UroMOCA measures bladder function wirelessly and catheter-free in conscious ambulating animals.

Data Collection: A wireless, active UroMOCA device was placed in the bladder of 2 subjects. The device was tested for its ability to wirelessly transmit bladder pressure, conductivity and conductance in conscious ambulating animals.

Primary Conclusion: The UroMOCA device was able to measure and transmit bladder function wirelessly and catheter-free in conscious ambulating animals for up to 1 month.

Curator's Notes

Experimental Design: This study used a domestic Yorkshire pig that had a cystotomy, and then had a UroMOCA device placed in the bladder.

Completeness: This dataset is a part of a larger study: "A FitBit for the bladder".

Subjects & Samples: This particular dataset used two 16 week old male domestic Yorkshire pigs (n=2). Measurements were taken in vivo in conscious ambulating animals.

Primary vs derivative data: The primary folder consists of cystometry data as tsv files and CT images as ima files. The derivative folder contains images of the device (jpg file extension), video (avi file extension), and cystometry data (xlsx). This includes testing the pressure and volume (conductance, conductivity and capacitance) in the rectum and bowel using the ColoMOCA.
