Frequently Asked Questions

What is a catheter?

A catheter is a medical device inserted into the bladder to drain urine. It is used for individuals who have difficulty urinating naturally.

What is an intermittent catheter?

An intermittent catheter is a device used to empty the bladder temporarily. It is inserted, used to drain urine, and then removed. This type is ideal for patients who do not need continuous catheterization.

What are Foley catheters used for?

Foley catheters are for long-term catheterization use. They have an inflatable balloon at the end to keep them in the bladder. This feature makes them suitable for patients needing continuous drainage.

What are the benefits of external catheters?

External catheters, also known as condom catheters for men, are non-invasive and reduce the risk of urinary tract infections. They are worn like a condom and are connected to a drainage bag, making them a comfortable option for many patients.

How can I prevent infections while using a catheter?

To prevent infections, maintain strict hygiene practices, use sterilized products, and follow your healthcare provider's instructions for cleaning and replacing the catheter. Consultation with your healthcare provider and regular monitoring are vital for managing your catheter use safely.
