Pediatric Catheters are specialized medical devices designed specifically for children to assist in the drainage of urine from the bladder. These catheters are carefully designed to accommodate the unique anatomy and size of pediatric patients. Pediatric urinary catheters play a vital role in managing urinary issues in children, ensuring proper urinary function, and assisting in diagnostic and therapeutic interventions related to the urinary system. Catheters for children come in various sizes and materials to ensure a proper fit and minimize discomfort. They are typically smaller in diameter compared to adult catheters to accommodate the narrower urethra in children. At HPFY, you will get a wide range of pediatric urine catheters from top-selling brands and manufacturers like Bard Inc, Coloplast, Covidien/Medtronic, and more.

Types of Pediatric Catheters

Straight Catheters

Also known as intermittent catheters, these are used for short-term bladder drainage. Straight catheters do not have a balloon and are inserted into the bladder through the urethra to drain urine. They are typically used for single-use and are discarded after each catheterization. It is called "straight" because it does not have a curved or bent tip like some other catheter types.

Hydrophillic Catheter

A hydrophilic catheter is a type of urinary catheter that has a special coating on its surface that becomes slippery when it comes into contact with water or moisture. This hydrophilic coating allows for easier insertion and removal of the catheter, reducing discomfort and the risk of trauma to the urethra. The hydrophilic coating reduces friction between the catheter and the urethra, making it easier and more comfortable to insert.

2-Way Foley Catheter

A pediatric two-way Foley catheter is called "two-way" because it has two lumens or channels that serve different purposes. At the tip of the catheter, there is an inflatable balloon made of a soft, pliable material, usually silicone. The balloon is connected to one of the lumens and is used to secure the catheter in place inside the bladder. Once the catheter is inserted, the balloon is inflated with sterile water to hold it in position. The second lumen, separate from the one connected to the balloon, is used for urine drainage. It allows urine to flow from the bladder, through the catheter, and into a urine collection bag or other suitable receptacle.

How to Perform Pediatric Catheterization?

  1. Gather all the necessary equipment, including a catheter, sterile gloves, sterile lubricant, antiseptic solution, urine collection bag (if necessary).
  2. Place the child on a suitable examination table or bed. The child may need to lie down with their legs spread apart.
  3. Perform hand hygiene and put on sterile gloves to maintain aseptic technique throughout the procedure.
  4. Clean the child's genital area using an antiseptic solution.
  5. Apply a sterile lubricant to the catheter tip to aid insertion and reduce discomfort.
  6. Gently insert the lubricated catheter into the urethral opening and advance it slowly and steadily into the bladder.
  7. The catheter should be inserted until urine flows, confirming that it is in the bladder.
  8. If the purpose of catheterization is to drain urine, attach a urine collection bag to the catheter and allow the urine to drain into the bag.
  9. Once the desired amount of urine is collected or the bladder is emptied, carefully and slowly remove the catheter from the urethra.

It's important to note that pediatric catheterization should ideally be performed by a healthcare professional trained in the procedure to ensure patient safety and minimize discomfort.
