Bard Uncoated Silicone Foley Catheter

Key Features:

How does a Foley Catheter work?

  • Foley catheter acts as a drain to empty the bladder
  • It is a thin, hollow tube made of soft, flexible material
  • It is passed through the urethra into the bladder
  • The catheter is held in place by a small water-filled balloon which is inflated in the bladder to keep the catheter from falling out while one goes about his normal activities
  • Urine will automatically drain out of the bladder into the bag which is attached to the catheter

Catheter Inflation:

    Bard Two Way Uncoated Silicone Foley Catheter With 5cc Balloon Capacity

  • 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
