Wide Range of Catheter Bags for Bladder Catheters
The catheter bag serves to collect urine that is delivered from a bladder catheter. Catheter bags are often equipped with sample taking points, so that the collected urine can be examined for infections. In order to prevent the urine from backing up, catheter bags are also equipped with a base discharge valve, which regularly drains the the urine.
Furthermore, modern urine drainage systems also include a special, anti-reflex valve. The drip chambers (available in many models) ensure that the bladder catheter and the catheter bag remain as a separated system, so as to prevent consequential infections. For monitoring the collected urine amount, most catheter bags are partially or completely transparent and include graduation marks.
Catheter Bags of Different Sizes for Hospitals & Healthcare
Depending on need, catheter bags are available with varying volumes and hose lengths. Catheter bags not only come into use in hospitals, but also in home healthcare, especially when caring for incontinent patients. Independent of the type of indwelling cathether set up, catheter bags are available as sterile or non-sterile.
There are different types and specifications of catheter bags, based on the patients' mobility:
Bed Bags are the Standard Catheter Bags for Immobile Patients
Bed bags are standard, when using indwelling catheters for immobile patients. As opposed to leg bags, bed bags are usually equipped with a drip chamber and designed to hold larger amounts of urine; therefore allowing these catheter bags to be used for up to 14 days.
Leg Bags are Great for Urine Catheters in Mobile Patients
The leg bag is predominantly for treatment of mobile patients, as it fastens to the body, thus making it easy to walk with. As a rule, leg bags come into use with an indwelling catheter, and seldom also with a urinal condom. Leg bags are either changed daily, or once every few days.
Hip Bags Allow for High Patient Mobility
These catheter bags can be fastened onto the patients' hips, using a special fastening strap, and provide the leg bag with a high standard of patient mobility.
