How wet is too wet?

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


All continence advisors are aware of clients who report severe
distress about their leakage, use lots of pads or continence
aids, and describe major effects on quality of life; indeed, the
emotional impact of incontinence can be quite significant 1.
However, when objective measures are used, there is sometimes
a mismatch with what has been reported. Patient perception
of how much they leak is greatly influenced by the amount of
urine they feel leaving the urethra and the size of the wet patch
on their clothing. Thus, there can be a discrepancy between
reported incontinence and actual leakage.
