The BIP Foley Catheter is an indwelling urinary catheter with Bactiguard coating which is proven to signifcantly reduce bacteriuria, symptomatic urinary tract infections and the use of antibiotics
The Bactiguard Infection Protection (BIP) technology is based on the application of a very thin noble metal coating consisting of gold palladium and silver to medical devices
The 3 way foley catheters are available in latex material
These foley catheters are also coated with hydrogel to reduce friction between the catheter surface and urethra both at insertion and during use
The coating is firmly bound to the surface of the device and reduces the adhesion and growth of microbes
The catheter can be used through the urethra or suprapubically, for up to 90 days
The catheter is available in multiple sizes: ◦ 16 FR with balloon capacity of 30 ml ◦ 18 FR with balloon capacity of 30 ml ◦ 20 FR with balloon capacity of 30 ml ◦ 22 FR with balloon capacity of 30 ml ◦ 24 FR with balloon capacity of 30 ml ◦ 26 FR with balloon capacity of 30 ml
These foley catheters come in a standard packing of 10 units per box
A Foley catheter is a thin, flexible and sterile tube which is passed through the urethra into the urinary bladder. Urine drains from the bladder into a bag which is attached to one of the lumens of the catheter. The catheter is held in its place with a balloon at one end which is filled with sterile water. A drainage system thus consists of the catheter and a urine collection bag. It is an indwelling catheter (it remains in the body for a considerable amount of time).
These urinary catheters are most commonly used to assist people who cannot urinate on their own and are used to drain the bladder. These foley catheters are recommend for the patients who are suffering from Urinary incontinence (leaking urine or being unable to control when you urinate) Urinary retention (being unable to empty your bladder when you need to). These catheters are a perfect pick for the patients whose mobility is hindered due to paralysis or injury and toilet facilities cannot be used
Empty the drainage bag before it is fully filled or in every 4 to 8 hours. Do not let the drain tube touch the container the urine is draining into, when emptying the bag.
