Credes maneuver is a way to assist helping someone urinate since this patient can’t urinate on his own. This is due to usually a disease that causes a patient to not be able to urinate without help. The way a nurse can help to do this is by pushing on the bladder. The nurse should have training on this in order to not hurt the patient.

The nurse merely applies pressure to the lower part of the abdomen in order to release the liquid in the bladder. Sometimes, the patient may be able to do this on their own. If a nurse is assisting a client with lower motor neuron damage, then he or she will have difficulty with urination.
