Nocturia : When assessing nocturia it is important to know the volume a person is voiding. If a person is evacuating a completely full bladder, i.e. high volume nocturia, there is no bladder issue, there is a fluid issues. Fluid issues can be from excessive intake, from recumbent position related fluid shifts, as well as renal, endocrine or cardiac issues. Low volume nocturia is related to bladder storage.
