Bladder Catheters and Accessories for Indwelling Catheterisation
Bladder catheters are often used in postoperative patient treatment or a balloon catheter can also be used in a care facility for micturition disturbances. The application of transurethral catheterisation must be weighed against the risk of urinary tract infections. The sterile insertion of the bladder catheter carries an especially important meaning next to the careful monitoring of the applied catheter. Therefore, a professional, hygienic work method is enormously important when inserting a bladder catheter.
Indication for the Application of a Transurethral Bladder Catheter
The indications for the suprapubic and transurethral application of a bladder catheter differ, whereas the common principle of the shortest possible indwelling time applies to minimise the risk of infections in the urinary tract or bladder. For example, the use of indwelling catheters for balancing purposes is justified with chronically-ill patients, whereas urine diversion via a balloon catheter is not indicated for incontinent patients unless the catheterisation is done for healing wounds within the perineal area. Preferably, the determination for bladder catheterisation should be examined by a doctor.
Catheter sets offer the ability to insert a bladder catheter in a structured, sterile and time-saving manner. We offer you complete sets with a catheter, as well as sets with diverse compositions for transurethral bladder catheterisation. Our pragmatically optimised sets for micturition can be purchased at reasonable prices.
Catheter bags for hygienically collecting the diverted urine can be found in various sizes within our shop. In addition to urine drainage systems for bed-ridden or immobile patients, we offer catheter bags for the legs and hips. With less fill volume and the ability to fasten them to the body, these hanging bags increase the mobility of the person wearing the indwelling catheter.
The indwelling catheter must justifiably have high material standards, as it should be mucosa friendly, anti-infectious, easy to insert into the urinary tract and have stable openings. These are made of silicone or siloconised latex and available with various specifications, which can also be applied for men with difficult urinary passages. Our indwelling catheters can be simply and conveniently ordered at good prices. If you were not able to find the correct product, simply speak to us and we will attempt to help.
