2004 (English)In: Scandinavian Journal of Urology and Nephrology, ISSN 0036-5599, E-ISSN 1651-2065, Vol. 38, no 2, p. 136-142Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Objective: To establish normal ranges for timed micturition, i.e. the time to void the first 100 ml, study its dependency on voided volume and age and compare it to maximum flow rate. Material and Methods: Randomly selected men from the National Register without voiding symptoms were investigated. These 58 men (aged 30-75 years) registered 1286 voidings (median 21 per person) at home with the aid of a portable uroflowmeter. Timed micturition and maximum flow rate were obtained from the same voidings. Results: An increase in timed micturition with an increase in age was confirmed. When estimating normal ranges it was sufficient to use the age groups ≤55 years and ≥56 years. Maximum flow rate is shown in nomograms with voided volume. Timed micturition had less dependency on voided volume than maximum flow rate. The normal ranges of timed micturition are ≤9 s for men aged ≤55 years and ≤15 s for those aged ≥56 years. The true median of timed micturition for men aged ≥56 years may be 6 s lower or 2.5 s higher than the value of a single measurement. Corresponding figures for maximum flow rate are 5 and 6 ml/s. Conclusions: Timed micturition has a low dependency on volume and values of ≤9 s and ≤15 s are normal for men aged ≤55 years and ≥56 years, respectively.

Abstract [en]

Objective: To compare and evaluate manually performed timed micturition in a domestic setting with registrations made using a home flowmeter. Material and Methods: Forty-six randomly selected men without voiding symptoms performed timed micturition at home both by hand and with a Da CapoTM home flowmeter. Statistical comparison using the Wilcoxon signed-rank test and regression analysis of the differences was performed to evaluate whether the two methods were comparable. Results: In two cases, there was a large discrepancy between the two methods. For the remaining 44 men, there were no statistically significant differences between the two methods. The median (range) timed micturition was 7 s (3-35 s) for manual measurements and 6.5 s (3.5-28 s) for electronic measurements. For each individual, the difference between the manually and electronically obtained medians was calculated. The average individual difference was 0.06 s (SD 1.6 s). Conclusion: Approximately 95% of men are able to measure timed micturition at home manually without statistically or clinically significant differences from electronically obtained measurements. One has to be aware that in a small proportion of cases timed micturition measured at home may be falsely long.
