A method is described to record bladder smooth muscle action potential (AP) data and subsequently in digitized form analyze the constitutive elements of the AP. Manipulation of digitized data can give accurate descriptive information on the AP configuration and kinetics. In the future this type of analysis will hopefully lead to more precise, quantitative information on changes in the smooth muscle AP kinetics with disease states and facilitate a clearer understanding of the pathophysiological processes underlying changes in detrusor contractility.
