bladder compliance

blad·der com·pli·ance

change in volume of bladder for a given change in pressure; can be calculated from a cytometrogram's pressure volume curve.

bladder compliance

A general term for the relationship between changes in the bladder volume and changes in pressure on the detrusor muscle; the ability of the bladder to stretch in response to an increase in volume of urine.

bladder compliance
