A combined monitoring of sleep stages and bladder activity for the evaluation of enuresis is on trial. Polygraphic recordings in 7 patients, comprising the preliminary material, have shown single-event bladder contractions without forewarning or changes in sleep stages. A volume dependency of the enuresis episodes seems so far to be a major mechanism.
