Flashcard 2 - Basic Care and Comfort Flashcard Set for the NCLEX-RN Exam


The correct answer is:

urinary tract infection (UTI)


Micturition is also known as urinary elimination. In addition to UTIs, patients may have problems related to too little urine (anuria, oliguria), too much urine (polyuria), urinary retention, urgency (the strong, sudden and uncontrollable urge to urinate), and dysuria (difficult or painful urination), among others.
