Urinary catheters are used to drain the bladder for reasons such as incontinence, urinary retention, surgery or other medical conditions that prohibit normal function. Careful handling and cleaning is required since catheters can introduce bacteria to the body. Check with your doctor or healthcare professional for proper care and use of irrigation, insertion trays and other supplies.

There are three main types of catheters:

Indwelling or Foley Catheter – Left in place in the bladder, can be used for long or short periods of time. They have a small balloon on the end that is inflated once it is in the bladder prevent it from sliding out of the body. The catheter is attached to a drainage bag which collects the urine.

Condom Catheter – A condom type catheter is placed over the penis, similar to a condom, and has a tube that leads from the device to a drainage bag to collect urine. These need to be changed every day.

Intermittent Catheter – These catheters are used intermittently or occasionally. They are inserted to drain the bladder and removed after the flow of urine stops.

There are two types of Drainage Bags:

Leg Bag – A smaller collection device that attaches to the leg with leg straps. Usually worn during the daytime.

Night Bag – Also known as a drain bag, overnight bag or bedside bag. It is larger than the leg bag, holds more fluid and us mostly used at night or while in bed, you can hang it on the bed or place it on the floor.
