Urinary catheterization is the medical procedure of introducing a catheter tube to a person’s bladder in order to drain the urine and gather it in the drainage bag attached to it. This process involves the passing of in and out urinary catheterization system..
When someone cannot fully empty their bladder that is when they seek out for a urinary catheter insertion. If you cannot let go of the waste from your bladder, it will produce unnecessary pressure to the kidneys. This pressure can result in kidney failure or sometimes permanent damage to the kidneys.
So, it is important to retain and rely on the process of urinary catheterization till the time you regain the ability to urinate on your own.
Although most people need urinary catheter care for a short while, yet there are others who depend on the catheters for a lifetime.
Generally, the oldies fall under the second category, where urinary catheter care is of utmost importance and more frequently in prostate enlargement in males.
Urinary Catheter Types
The three main urinary catheter types are as follows:
- INDWELLING CATHETERS
Foley catheter – Indwelling means to reside inside , it comes in different urinary catheter sizes. The urinary catheter insertion can be done both for long and short-term purposes for urinary catheterization in females and males. The at
Suprapubic Catheter – The urinary catheter insertion is done by making a small hole at the lower abdomen/ bladder area also called as Suprapubic Catheter.
At one end of the catheter is fixed an inflated balloon. The balloon is filled with water so that the tube does not slide down and falls from the bladder. The deflating of the balloon is a clear sign that it is time for the catheter to be removed.
- EXTERNAL CATHETERS
Also known as the Condom catheter, the external catheter is kept outside the body. Basically, it is suitable for men or precisely for people suffering from dementia. This type of urinary catheter is like a condom that is put on the penis head and a tube leads from the condom head to the drainage pouch. These catheters also come with various urinary catheter sizes option. Using external catheters are more comfortable and are less infectious.
- SHORT-TERM CATHETERS
It is only after a serious surgery that a short-term catheter is required to empty the bladder. After the emptying of the bladder, it is necessary to remove the catheter. That is why this system is referred to as in and out urinary catheterization.
Intermittent Catheterization– It is also done in Motor Nurone Disease like ALS which develop Neurogenic Bladder in advance stage. This is done to reduce the residual Volume of bladder to prevent bladder discomfort and infection.
Complications Of Urinary Catheterization
The indwelling urinary catheterization process is the root cause of infections in the urinary tract. Therefore, it is important to take urinary catheter care regularly to prevent infections. The symptoms of urinary tract infections include fever, chills, headache, burning in the genital areas, urine leakage from the catheter, foul smell in urine, pain in the lower abdomen and aches.
Some other minor complications of urinary catheterization process too occur, especially for urinary catheterization female. These could be allergic tendencies for using a catheter, stones in the bladder, blood oozing out during urinating, injury in the urethra, damage in the kidneys, and infection in the urinary tract.
Also, in case of intermittent urinary catheterization, where the catheter needs to be inserted and removed several times a day, there are severe chances of infections as well. To avoid such complications, opting for urinary catheter care at home, with the help of a Professional Health Care is the best-chosen option.
