Step 2 CK: Overflow incontinence mnemonic

Greeting everyone!
In this post, I'll be sharing a mnemonic on overflow incontinence!

The mnemonic is DOC
Causes of overflow incontinence include Denervation (Diabetes mellitus is a cause) and bladder Outlet obstruction (BPH, tumor can cause it). Drugs like anaesthetics can also lead to overflow incontinence. 

This leads to Overdistension of bladder and Dribbling when the bladder can't hold anymore urine. It's also why postvoid urine is increased and the patient feels the symptom of incomplete emptying of the bladder.

Treatment includes intermittent Catheterization and Cholinergics like bethanechol.


That's all! :)
