Reproductive System Disorders Q 12

Nurse Gil is aware that the following statements describing urinary incontinence in the elderly is true?
    A. Urinary incontinence is a normal part of aging.
    B. Urinary incontinence isn’t a disease.
    C. Urinary incontinence in the elderly can’t be treated.
    D. Urinary Incontinence is a disease.

Correct Answer: B. Urinary incontinence isn’t a disease.

Urinary incontinence isn’t a normal part of aging nor is it a disease. It may be caused by confusion, dehydration, fecal impaction, restricted mobility, or other causes. Certain medications, including diuretics, hypnotics, sedatives, anticholinergics, and antihypertensives, may trigger urinary incontinence. Most clients with urinary incontinence can be treated; some can be cured.

Option A: Urinary incontinence means a person leaks urine by accident. While it may happen to anyone, urinary incontinence is more common in older people, especially women. Most incontinence in men is related to the prostate gland.
Option C: Today, there are more treatments for urinary incontinence than ever be­fore. The choice of treatment depends on the type of bladder control problem the client has, how serious it is, and what best fits the client’s lifestyle.
Option D: The body stores urine in the bladder. During urination, muscles in the bladder tighten to move urine into a tube called the urethra. At the same time, the muscles around the urethra relax and let the urine pass out of the body. When the muscles in and around the bladder don’t work the way they should, urine can leak. Incontinence typically occurs if the muscles relax without warning.
