Urinary Catheters

A urinary catheter is a long, hollow, rubber drainage tube that is inserted into the body. It can be made of either plastic, silicone, or rubber. It enters where you urinate and goes into the bladder. A small balloon is inflated at the tip of the tube once it is in your bladder. The balloon helps to keep the catheter in place. The other end of the tube is connected to a collection bag. The purpose of the catheter is to drain urine from the bladder. Your health care provider may recommend that you use a catheter if you have:

  • Urinary Incontinence (leaking urine or being unable to control when you urinate)
  • Urinary Retention (being unable to empty your bladder when you need to)
  • Surgery on The Prostate or Genitals
  • Other Medical Conditions Such as Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury, Or Dementia

Various Types of Catheters Include:

  • Indwelling or Foley Catheter - A catheter that resides in the bladder
  • External or Condom Catheter - A catheter placed outside the body. It’s typically necessary for men who don’t have urinary retention problems but have serious functional or mental disabilities, such as dementia.
  • Intermittent Catheter - A catheter that is only needed for a short period of time after surgery until the bladder empties
