Comparison of Body and Room Temperature Saline in Urodynamics
The purpose of this study is to compare first urge, strong urge, and maximum capacity, and perception of discomfort during urodynamic testing between room temperature and body temperate saline. Twenty-four non-pregnant females referred to the urogynecology clinic for bladder testing will be enrolled into the study. Each patient will serve as her own control, undergoing the bladder testing with both room temperature and body temperature saline.
This is a prospective observational study. Patient scheduled to undergo evaluation of urinary incontinence by urodynamics in the gynecology clinic will be asked to participate. Patients will be counseled and consent forms signed. The nurse will open the envelope which randomizes the order of instillation and set up the first fluid. Normal saline in 1000ml bags are used for instillation. The bags being used for body temperature fluid will be heated using an Olympic Warmette to between 98 and 99 degrees as determined by 3M Tempadot Thermometers. Urodynamics will be performed using standard clinic protocol recording first sensation, first urge, and maximum capacity. The patient will ask to comment on the discomfort of the test using a 5 point Lickert scale for both pain and urgency (see attached questions). Patients will be allowed to void. The bladder will be filled again with the second solution with identical questions used to determine first sensation, first urge and maximum capacity. During each filling the patient will be tested for stress incontinence at 200 and 300 mls as per our protocol. Following the instillation of the second solution the patient will again be asked her perception of pain and urgency an identical scale. Maximum bladder capacities from each temperature saline tested will then be compared against maximum bladder capacity as estimated from the patients’ bladder diary. The patient will then be managed as is appropriate for her test results.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Involuntary loss of URINE, such as leaking of urine. It is a symptom of various underlying pathological processes. Major types of incontinence include URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE and URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.
A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.
Urinary Bladder, Overactive
Symptom of overactive detrusor muscle of the URINARY BLADDER that contracts with abnormally high frequency and urgency. Overactive bladder is characterized by the frequent feeling of needing to urinate during the day, during the night, or both. URINARY INCONTINENCE may or may not be present.
Support structures, made from natural or synthetic materials, that are implanted below the URETHRA to treat URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.
