Frequency Volume Chart
Before starting to fill in the chart you will need a small plastic measuring
jug, with millilitres marked on it. It is best to choose 2 or 3 days when
you know you will not be particularly busy (eg, over a weekend). They
do not need to be consecutive days.
Type of drink - please write what sort of drink you had in this column
(eg, tea, coffee, water).
Amount of drink - before you start, and to avoid having to measure
every drink you have, please use the jug to measure the volume (amount
of liquid it holds) of your usual cup/mug/glass and keep a note of these
figures in the table below. Please then enter the appropriate volume in
the column overleaf when you have a drink. The jug can then be used
to measure the volume of urine passed.
Amount of urine passed - every time you pass urine, measure the
amount in the measuring jug and record the amount in mls (millilitres).
It is important to record the amount of urine passed during the night
time as well as the day time and enter it in the appropriate column.
Wet/pads changed - please write wet every time you are wet and pad
every time you changed a pad in the corresponding column, if this
applies to you.
Please also note on the chart at what
hour you woke up (by writing woke)
and when you went to bed
(by writing bed).
Complete the chart for 3 full days
and bring it to your next
