What is a catheter?
A urinary catheter is a flexible tube that is inserted into the bladder to collect urine in a drainage bag. A catheter can be inserted either through the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the bladder) or through a small opening made in the lower stomach.
Why is a catheter used?
A catheter is used when someone has difficulty passing urine naturally. This could be for many reasons such as if you have an obstruction in your urethra, if you have bladder weakness or nerve damage that affects your ability to pass urine naturally, to deliver medicine directly to the bladder (such as chemotherapy for bladder cancer) as a last resort when other treatments for incontinence haven’t worked.
Intermittent Catheter – Temporarily inserted to the bladder and removed once the bladder is empty
Indwelling Catheter – This is a more long-term catheter and is held in place by an inflated balloon within the bladder.
If you find you need help with your catheter care at home, our highly qualified carers can provide this. We can help ensure the catheter is kept clean and keep an eye out for any infections, doing our best to avoid these along the way by keeping the catheter and area around it clean, reducing the risk of contamination. We can also ensure drainage bags are emptied regularly and that they and the catheters themselves are worn in a comfortable position. As well as the medical side of catheter care, we will also be on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have, and support you with any side effects of your condition. If you need other services such as a live-in carer, we can sort this too.
