    The response the nurse should give to a client who responds that he gets up at night to void frequently should be;

    that there is dependent edema which results from water and sodium reabsorption though kidney leads to extracellular expansion.

    The increased frequency of nocturia results for redistribution of fluid at night which forces the client to get up at night and use the bathroom.
