Nocturnal Enuresis and Alarm Treatment
Alarm treatment is a behavioural treatment of nocturnal enuresis based on sleep conditioning. It can be combined with overlearning, i.e. the consumption of additional fluid before sleep. Various types of alarm devices are available. They include a humidity sensor which activates an acoustic or vibrating signal, trying to awake the child (for sure the parents) when it wets the bed. In this section, the articles focus on the outcome using the alarm treatment. The success rates of alarm treatment are high, both for initial therapy and treatment after relapse, but outmost important is the guidance of the treatment.
