001IC - Nocturia: Advances in Diagnosis & Management

Friday, May 18
7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Location: MCC WEST, 2010

Case-based course is intended to present a scheme for evaluation of the patient with bothersome nocturia. Designed to allow for rational treatment based upon correct diagnosis. The use of sound general medicine concepts added to the standard urologic armamentarium, along with detailed analysis of the micturition diary, will result in an understanding of the multifactorial etiologies and metabolic/sleep consequences of nocturia, facilitating their stratification appropriate to a therapeutic strategy. New information will be presented regarding effects of various therapies on nocturia outcomes. Objectives: After attending this course, participants should be able to: identify the multiple causes and consequences of nocturia in terms of its morbidity, mortality and economic costs to society; utilize the voiding diary to categorize nocturia and generate a roster of underlying medical conditions, treatment of which may result in summative improvement; review the pathophysiologic causes of nocturia and how they may be reversed with cause-specific therapy; appraise available data describing outcomes of nocturia treatment with targeted pharmacotherapy; apply concepts learned to real-life case studies describing diagnosis and treatment of nocturia.
