Bard Catheters are thin, hollow tubes that are needed by people who need to manage urinary leakage, have problems urinating, have recently had a surgery that made using a catheter necessary, or have prostate problems. Bard Catheters allow people to drain urine out of their bladder by inserting the tube into the urethra. Before inserting the catheter, it is very important to remember to wash your hands. After you wash your hands, gather the supplies. If it feels weird to use your bare hands, you can always use gloves to insert the catheter.

bard cathetersFor men, if you are not circumcised, then you must move back the foreskin on your penis. Clean the tip of your penis with an antiseptic cleaner, or however your doctor showed you. Apply the gel you were given to the tip and the top two inches of the catheter. Then with one hand, hold your penis and with the other insert the catheter gently. Do not try to force it in. Try and breathe deeply.

For women, you also must wash your hands and collect your supplies. The option of gloves instead of bare hands is still valid. Then, gently open the labia and find the urinary opening. It may be helpful to use a mirror at first. Wash your labia front to back, up and down and down the middle three times. Remember to either use an antiseptic towelette, baby wipe, or cotton balls with soap and water. If you choose to use soap and water, remember to rinse and dry thoroughly. Then apply whatever gel you were provided to the tip and the top two inches of the catheter. While you hold your labia, gently insert the catheter in the urinary opening. Do not force it. After using the catheter, clean your labia and urinary opening again like you did before you inserted the catheter. Lastly, wash your hands again.

Typically, external catheters are made for men. They can also be known as condom catheters. Men wear these catheters as they would a condom, by covering the penis. The external catheter is made of silicone. At the tip of the penis, the catheter has a hole so the urine can pour into a collection device. Bard now has created a female external catheter. Female external catheters are very different from a male external catheter. The female catheter low pressure vacuums the urine out into a vinyl tubing, then the urine enters the collection device. The tube is placed between the labia and gluteus muscles. This device does not ever enter the vagina. It is replaced at least every 8 to 12 hours.

A foley catheter, also known as an indwelling catheter, is a sterile tube that is inserted into the bladder to drain the urine from your body. Urine that is drained from the catheter ends up in a bag. This bag is emptied when full. A foley catheter is held in place by a balloon at the bottom of it. The balloon is filled with sterile water to prevent the catheter from moving from the bladder. Before inserting the indwelling catheter you must keep your genital area clean. Do not use chemical irritants in genital area before you insert the catheter. It might be more comfortable to wear loose-fitting cotton clothing.
Intermittent catheters are used when the patient need either short-term management or when this is a daily habit of the patient’s life. Intermittent catheterization is for inserting and removing the catheter various times a day. This type of catheter eliminates the need to wear a catheter that is draining constantly and continuously.

A general way to clean catheters is to wash the catheter with soap and water or an antiseptic solution. Rinse it inside and out. Then dry the catheter and put it on a clean towel. Once the catheter is dry, place it in a plastic bag.

Bard Coated Latex Catheter

Patient Care Medical carries the best catheter products on the market. One of the top catheters we provide is the Bard Coated Latex Foley Catheter.

Bard Coated Latex Foley CatheterBard Foley Catheters are a great catheter to use to reduce the risk of urethral irritation and infection. Bard Coated Latex Foley Catheter has a hydrogel coating that is proven to reduce friction and irritation. They are also known to prevent bacterial adherence and encrustation. The hydrogel coating penetrates the inner latex substrate to create a lubricious barrier that enhances user safety and remains intact throughout the course of the day.

Bard Coated Latex Foley Catheter consistently outperform silicone catheters. They demonstrate superior balloon water retention to keep the catheter optimally positioned within the bladder.

With superior strength, the Foley catheter guards against premature deflation or collapse, maintains balloon integrity, resists tears and collapse during clot aspiration and resists rupture.

Do you have a latex allergy? The latex sensitivity risk in the general population has been estimated at less than 1% with some as little as 0.12%. Bard coated latex has the lowest allergen levels in the industry. In the last 70 years, there have been no confirmed allergic reactions to the Bard coated latex Foley catheters.

Silicone Foley Catheter Bard

What does a Bard Coated Latex Foley Catheter do?

A Bard Coated Latex Foley catheter is a thin, sterile tube inserted into the bladder to drain urine. It can be left in place in the bladder for a period of time, so it is also called an indwelling catheter. It is held in place in the bladder with a balloon at the end, which is filled with sterile water to prevent the catheter from being removed from the bladder. The urine drains through the catheter tube into a bag, which is emptied when full. The procedure to insert a catheter is called catheterization.

A Bard Coated Latex Foley catheter is used in many cases, such as disorders, procedures, or problems:

  • Urine Retention: leading to urinary hesitancy, straining to urinate, decrease in size and force of the urinary stream, interruption of urinary stream, and sensation of incomplete emptying of the bladder.
  • Urethra Obstruction: by an anatomical condition that makes it difficult for one to urinate such as:
    prostate hypertrophy
    prostate cancer
    narrowing of the urethra
  • Urine Monitoring: output monitoring in a critically ill or injured person
  • Collection: of a sterile urine specimen for diagnostic purposes
  • Nerve-related Bladder Dysfunction: such as after spinal trauma, regular use of a catheter
  • Image Study: of the lower urinary tract
  • After Surgery

Important things to know:

  • Always wash your hands before and after
  • Follow your physicians instructions
  • Keep the tubing straight and not twisted or kinked
  • Check to make sure the urine is flowing into the collection bag
  • Always keep the urine bag below the level of your bladder
  • Don’t let the collection bag pull on the catheter tubing
  • Check for signs of inflammation or infection, areas may be swollen or tender
  • Keep area clean.  Clean area around catheter twice a day using soap and water and towel dry.
  • Do not use powder or lotion around the catheter area
  • Never pull or tug on the catheter
  • Do not have sexual intercourse while wearing the catheter
  • You will need to empty the urine bag regularly, when it gets to half full and at bedtime
  • Make your measurements before emptying the urine
  • Wash your hands and wear gloves if you prefer, remove the drain spout from it’s sleeve at the bottom of the collection back and then open the valve on the spout
  • Don’t let the tubing or drain spout touch anything when draining
  • Make sure when completely drained to wipe off any liquid on the drain spout, close the valve and put the drain spout back into it’s sleeve, then wash your hands with soap and water
