Catheter Inflation Instructions:

  • Ensure that the Bard Foley Catheter balloon is positioned well within the bladder of the patient.
  • Slowly, with a gentle, constant force, inflate the Bard Foley catheter balloon with the volume prescribed on the package.
  • Note that the 5cc balloon must be inflated with between 9cc and 10cc of sterile water.
  • Improperly inflated Bard Foley catheter balloons may cause drainage and deflation difficulties.
  • Using fluid other than sterile water may cause the balloon not to empty properly, especially after long dwell times.

  • Properly Inflated

Catheter Deflation Instructions:

  • Select a luer lock or slip tip syringe.
  • Slide the plunger of the syringe up and down the barrel of the syringe several times to “loosen it up”.
  • Compress the plunger all the way and then pull back the plunger slightly so that it does not adhere to the front of the syringe barrel.
  • Gently insert the syringe in the catheter valve.
  • Do not use more force than is required to make the syringe “stick” in the valve.
  • Allow the pressure within the balloon to force the plunger back and fill the syringe with water.
  • If you notice slow or no deflation, re-seat the syringe gently. Once again, allow the balloon to deflate slowly on its own.
  • If the balloon does not deflate, reposition the patient.
  • Ensure that the catheter is not in traction—the proximal end of the catheter is not compressed within the bladder neck.
  • Ensure that urine flows freely.
  • Attempt to deflate the balloon by using the pressure in the balloon to force water into the syringe as described above.
  • If the balloon stills fails to deflate, apply very gentle slow aspiration. Aspiration that is too rapid, or too forceful, may cause the inflation lumen within the Foley catheter to collapse.
  • If permitted by hospital protocol, the valve arm may be severed.
  • If this fails, contact an adequately trained professional for assistance, as directed by hospital protocol.


  • Do not use ointments or lubricants having a petrolatum base. They will damage the catheter.
  • Visually inspect the product for any imperfections or surface deterioration prior to use.
  • Inflate the balloon with sterile water to the volume stated on the inflation lumen of the catheter by using a water-filled Luer tip syringe.
  • Do not use needle.
  • Do not exceed recommended capacities.
