Artificial Urine Preparation For Teaching
Urine is composed of water, salts, and waste products. The specific gravity of urine is generally 1.002 to 1.028. The typical pH range is 4.5 to 8.0. The dissolved oxygen content of fresh urine is generally around 6 ppm.
One of the main uses of artificial urine is in teaching. It can be used to demonstrate the principles of testing and analysis in a variety of settings including nursing, medical, and veterinary schools. Artificial urine can also be used by firefighters, EMTs, and others who need to know how to properly collect and analyze a urine sample.
What is Artificial Urine?
Artificial urine is a solution that mimics the chemical composition of real urine. It is typically made from water, salts, urea, and creatinine. Fake urine kit can be purchased online or in some medical supply stores.
How to Prepare Artificial Urine for Teaching
To create a realistic teaching experience, it is important to make sure that the artificial urine you use closely resembles real urine. This can be accomplished by using distilled water and adding the appropriate amount of salt, urea, and creatinine. If you are using store-bought artificial urine, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for preparation.
Once the artificial urine has been prepared, it can be used in a number of ways to teach students about testing and analysis. For example, it can be used to demonstrate how to properly collect a urine sample or how to test a sample for specific gravity, pH levels, or dissolved oxygen content. By following steps you can prepare it.
- Collect all of the materials you will need. This includes a container to hold the urine, a funnel, gloves, and a heat pad.
- Sterilize the container by boiling it in water for two minutes.
- Boil two cups of water and add one cup of powdered milk to the water. Stir until the milk is fully dissolved.
- Add one teaspoon of salt and one tablespoon of sugar to the milk mixture and stir until dissolved.
- Cool the mixture to body temperature (98 degrees Fahrenheit) by running it under cold water or placing it in the refrigerator for several minutes.
- Add one teaspoon of Urea (a nitrogen-containing compound found in mammal feces) to the mixture and stir until dissolved.
- 10 drops of yellow food coloring to the mixture and stir until evenly distributed.
8 Pour the mixture into the container using the funnel. Put on the gloves and carefully swirl the urine around so that it mixes completely with the Urea & food coloring solution
9 Place the container in the heat pad and wrap it securely so that it stays warm throughout your teaching period.”
10 Keep an eye on the temperature of the urine mixture during your teaching period, adding more hot water to the heat pad as needed to maintain 98 degrees Fahrenheit.
Artificial urine can be an invaluable tool for teaching students about testing and analysis procedures. By making sure that the artificial urine you use closely resembles real urine, you can create a realistic teaching experience for your students. Once the artificial urine has been prepared, it can be used in a number of ways to teach students about testing and analysis procedures such as proper sample collection or testing for specific gravity, pH levels, or dissolved oxygen content.”
