Urinary incontinence presentations can be divided into acute ("transient") or chronic. Sudden onset of incontinence by potentially reversible and treatable conditions is referred to as acute urinary incontinence. Conditions contributing to acute incontinence include lower urinary tract conditions, stool impaction, delirium, fluid imbalance, impaired mobility, and medications (Table 4-15). These conditions not only precipitate acute urinary incontinence, but can also contribute to chronic incontinence.

Chronic incontinence can be divided into five types: urge, stress, overflow, functional, and mixed (Table 4-16).
