What is catheter care?

Catheter care helps people who have trouble passing urine. A urinary catheter is a flexible tube that is inserted into the bladder to collect urine in a drainage bag. Catheter care services help to drain the bladder for long and short term periods.

Catheter care refers to the assistance provided to patients that require a catheter. This can be support administering and removing a catheter, receiving treatments through a catheter, catheter changes, etc.

Why is a catheter used?

A catheter is used when someone has difficulty passing urine naturally. This can be due to health issues, bladder weakness, nerve damage, etc. A catheter can also be used to deliver medicine directly to the bladder when other treatments haven’t worked.

Intermittent catheter – Temporarily inserted to the bladder and removed once the bladder is empty

Indwelling catheter – A long term catheter that is held in place by an inflated balloon within the bladder.
