The specialist recommended, only, to put into practice some countermeasures, able to maintain a stable disorder or, in the best cases, combat it. The recommended main remedy is the constant practice of Kegel exercises, which serve to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. The other remedies consist in the reduction of body weight, in the case of women overweight, and in avoiding the lifting of heavy objects.

Urinary incontinence, the loss of bladder control, can also be called enuresis is a problem with many different age groups. This is caused by sympathetic dysfunction. Sympathetic dysfunction affects many systems of the body such as the the cardiovascular, reproductive, and even urinary. Enuresis is a medical term used more towards children meaning involuntary urination, referred to bedwetting most of the time (Silverthorn, 2013).

During my clinical preceptorship at New York Presbyterian Hospital, many patients that came into the hospital with urinary retention a catheter was inserted to determine the amount of urine in their bladder or post-void residual (PVR). Many patients later developed pain and a urinary tract infection or Community Acquired Infection secondary to frequent cauterization.

I write on behalf of my patient, Phil Robins, who is a sixty-five-year-old male facing acute urinary retention. Phil Robins shows several medical symptoms, including an inability to urinate, severe pain and discomfort in the lower abdomen, and bloating of the lower abdomen. My patient has been previously diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia which has been obstructing his urinary tract. Because of this, he frequently has to use a catheter to empty his bladder. My main concern for Mr. Robins is the prevention of infections commonly associated with catheter use.
I will also discuss the treatment and management of the disease based on the appropriate clinical guidelines. Lastly, I will explain strategies for educating the patient on the disorder. Case Study The case study I chose is that of a 28-year old Caucasian female that presents with three episodes of urinary incontinence

The Home Health Aide and the Overactive Bladder According to Mayo Clinic, an overactive bladder is just that: a bladder-storage problem resulting in sudden and frequent urges to urinate. Often these "urges" may be so strong that they cannot be stopped leading to incontinence. The amount of urine released may be a small trickle, or it may be a complete emptying of the bladder. The National Library of Medicine notes that the number of seniors with an overactive bladder continues to grow.
For the first time I saw a rectaltube, is something very similar to the Foley Catheter. I felt a little bad when I could not hear the heart and lungs sounds of this patient while we were making him a head
The suprapubic catheter is placed through a small incision in the abdomen and directly into the bladder, this is to help avoid using the urethrae. This type of catheter is held in place by a body seal system, sutures and tape. When caring for a patient with this type you want to make sure that you don’t use or put any kind of tension of the catheter. You want to make sure to keep bag below their bladder level and to keep things clean. The condom catheter is used for male patients and is a soft sheath made of rubber and is used for patients that are comatose, incontinent and for any who’s bladder empties continuously.
The paramedic reports a moderate amount of dark red vaginal bleeding, blood pressure 84/46, heart rate of 130, and respiratory rate of 26. The patient complains of severe abdominal pain rating it a 9/10. When the abdomen is palpated by the nurse there is localized uterine tenderness in the upper right quadrant and it is boardlike. Upon observation a large blood clot is seen on the patient’s pad. She is experiencing contractions every 2 minutes.
