Summary

Urinary incontinence (UI) is defined as involuntary urinary incontinence. In women with COPD, chronic coughing can often lead to UI. In this patient group, incontinence may be related to functional impairment, concomitant diseases and medications used. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of urinary incontinence in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the factors that may be associated with urinary incontinence. The study included individuals who applied to the Pulmonary Diseases Policlinic of SANKO University Sani Konukoğlu Practice and Research Hospital and followed up with the diagnosis of COPD. The age, sex, height, weight, education level, smoking, exercise habits, fluid intake, medications and accompanying diseases such as heart disease, hypertension and diabetes will be recorded. Any prolapse or surgery will be questioned and noted. The disease severity will be determined by the forced expiratory volume (FEV1) value of the first second obtained from pulmonary function tests. Dyspnea score will also be determined by the Modified British Research Council (MBRC). Symptoms will be evaluated with the COPD Assessment Test (CAT). For urinary incontinence, the ICIQ-SF (International Urinary Incontinence Consultation) Questionnaire and Urinary Distress Inventory will be applied. In addition, the Leicester Cough Questionnaire will be used to assess your coughing functions, and the Activity-Self Assessment will be performed to determine the individual activity adequacy and the value of activities for individuals. All evaluations will be done only once with the help of the physiotherapist and asking the questions and recording the answers of the individual.
