A Different Way to Study Frequency Volume Charts in Patients with Nocturia Book Description :

Abstract : Background: Nocturia results from a mismatch between bladder capacity and nocturnal urine production (NUP), which is determined with a frequency volume charts (FVC). Aim: This is the first study that aimed to describe variations in nocturia severity and its associated factors by evaluating FVCs per single 24 h‐period. Methods: This was a post‐hoc analysis of patients who completed a 72 h‐FVC in prospective, observational studies. The nocturnal polyuria index (NPi ) was defined as the ratio of nocturnal and 24 h urine output. Subgroups were defined according to variations in nocturia frequency during the three 24 h‐periods of the FVC (fluctuating/consistent) and to the number of nocturia episodes during a single night (0/1/≥2). Results: We analyzed 504 24 h‐FVC, collected by 168 subjects (58% female) with a median age of 60 (50‐68) years. Nocturia frequency fluctuated in 69 (41%) subjects. For the same number of nocturnal voids, we found no differences in NPi and maximum voided volume (MVV) between consistent and fluctuating nocturia frequency. Increasing numbers of nocturnal voids were associated with an increasing NPi in subjects with fluctuating nocturia, while for consistent nocturia, it was linked to an increase in NPi and a decrease in MVV. For both subjects with fluctuating and consistent nocturia, increasing nocturia severity was associated with increasing daytime fluid intake. Conclusion: For the same number of nocturnal voids, bladder capacity, and NUP were similar between patients with consistent and fluctuating nocturia. An increasing number of nocturnal voids in subjects with fluctuating nocturia was linked to more NUP and more daytime fluid intake.

The articles appearing in this geriatrics-focused issue are consistent with the collaborative and translational concepts held by a life course perspective. Each supports interprofessional collaboration and some are either authored or coauthored by interdisciplinary colleagues. Three goals are reflected in these articles: keeping community-dwelling older adults safe, sensible, and secure with solutions that will enable them to stay healthy, wise, and aware. Topics include maintaining physical functions, benefits and consequences of weight-bearing exercise on foot health; cancer prevention; managing nocturia’s effect on sleep quality and safety; protection from financial exploitation; and providing safe and affordable living environments. Several articles address physical or cognitive challenges that include monitoring medication adherence, threat of anxiety and stigma in dementia, and approaches to managing self-care in the home for persons with dementia. These evidence-based articles address emerging and best practices to support targeted interventions for persons in community-dwelling home settings. They provide a frame-work of person-centered approaches that foster good health in older age, a central tenet of aging in place and the global response to population aging.

Therapeutic Management of Incontinence and Pelvic Pain Book Description :

As medical knowledge advances we tend to compartmentalise our specialties into smaller units; but, hand in hand with this, there is a growing understanding between the different disciplines within the caring professions. Thus we are able to share our special skills to the benefit of patients. This book is an excellent example of the advantage of interdisciplinary communication and demonstrates a refreshing holistic approach to the problems of incontinence and pelvic pain. Written with physiotherapists in mind, the editors have invited contributions from many distinguished experts in their own field. These have been compiled into a comprehensive book, which will appeal to many healthcare professionals. I have had great pleasure in reading this book. During the time that I have been involved with 'pelvic dysfunction' there have been many exciting advances. These are all included in a most readable sequence, some presented with a refreshing new twist. In particular, I would like to bring to your attention the section on 'pelvic pain'. Because of our lack of understanding it has been a problem that is too often ignored and here at last are some practical ideas for therapeutic management. There is still much progress to be made in the field of incontinence and pelvic pain and as yet, no editors can be expected to produce a definitive work. However, I would like to recommend this book most strongly. It has a new approach to this topic, which is still a major problem for many people.

Geriatric Medicine an evidence based approach Book Description :

People are living longer and the population over the age of 60 is burgeoning, with repercussions for health services and healthcare expenditure in developed countries. Crucially, disease aetiology, diagnosis, and treatment in older people differ from the general adult population. Older people often have complicated co-morbidities and respond to treatment in different ways compared to younger people. Evidence of efficacy of different treatments is often lacking because older people are under-represented in clinical trials, and the specific needs of older people are rarely discussed specifically in more general texts. Geriatric medicine: an evidence based approach is a clinical reference for health care professionals who manage older patients, and summarizes up-to-date research literature in a style that can be directly applied by busy healthcare professionals and provide a useful resource for reference.

The Female Pelvic Floor Book Description :

The initial objective of this work was to reduce stress incontinence surgery from a major surgical procedure (requiring up to ten days in hospital) to a minor day-care operation. From the beginning it was clear that the two major impediments to achieving this goal were post operative pain and urinary retention. Addressing these problems became a long and winding road and culminated in the Integral Theory. The IVS 'tension-free' tape operation was inspired by Dr Robert Zacharin's anatomical studies. Though Zacharin suggested that the ligaments and muscles around the urethra were important for urinary continence control, he did not say how. The observation that implanted foreign materials created scar tissue led to the hypothesis that a plastic tape inserted in the position of the pubourethrallig ament, would leave behind sufficient scar tissue to reinforce that ligament, which would then anchor the muscles for urethral closure. In September 1986, two prototype Intravaginal Sling operations were per formed. A Mersilene tape was inserted with neither tension nor elevation, in the position of the pubourethral ligament. Restoration of continence was immediate and both patients were discharged on the day following surgery without require ment for catheterization. There was minimal pain, and immediate restoration of continence. After six weeks the tapes were removed. Both patients were still conti nent at last review 10 years later. The results appeared to confirm the importance of a midurethral anchoring point.
