Background Clean catch urine (CCU) collection in precontinent children is often time-consuming, with associated collection failure. We hypothesise that stimulating cutaneous reflexes hastens voiding for CCU.
Methods 40 children aged 1–24 months in the ED. Standard CCU was augmented with gentle suprapubic cutaneous stimulation using saline-soaked gauze (Quick-Wee method).
Results 12/40 (30%) children voided within 5 min for successful CCU. Parental and clinician satisfaction was high.
Conclusions Quick-Wee appears to be a simple method to speed CCU in young children.
