What are Catheters?
A catheter is a little tube that is inserted into the urethra to help the bladder empty of urine. There are three primary types of catheters since they are essential supplies for patients with urine incontinence: Intermittent catheters are withdrawn as soon as the bladder is drained, whereas external catheters sheath the genitals for simple protection. Foley catheters, also known as indwelling catheters, remain in the urethra for extended periods of time.
What is the Need for Catheters?
Catheters are used if patients have difficulty urinating on their own. They can be used to drain urine before or after surgery, run certain tests, or provide long-term relief for patients with conditions affecting their ability to urinate. It is important to maintain a regular supply of catheters as they need to be changed regularly.
