OBJECTIVE To develop and test a simple and rapid method for quantifying the urine loss resulting from three deep coughs using an ordinary brown paper towel. METHODS A brown paper towel is held lightly against the perineum during three single coughs performed in the upright stance. The resulting wetted area was calculated using simple geometry; if desired, leakage volume can be interpolated from a calibration curve, which demonstrates the relationship between wetted area (cm2) and volume (mL… CONTINUE READING
