Inflation/Deflation Guidelines

  • Catheter Inflation:
    - Ensure that the Bard Foley catheter balloon is positioned well within the patients bladder. 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 to 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
  • Catheter Deflation:
    - Select a luer slip 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
