Bard offers variety of catheter solutions

Catheter urinary

Bard, the distributor of bard catheters and Foley catheters works to refine and enhance such urological devices such as catheters for men and catheters for women. Bard offers the largest portfolio of catheter Foley and catheter collections systems, including urine catheters, hydrophilic catheters and coude catheters in the world.
A catheter foley is a flexible tube that is often passed through the urethra and into the bladder. The tube has two separated channels, or lumens, running down its length. One lumen is open at both ends, and allows urine to drain into a collection bag. Through the use of a valve, the other lumen connects to a balloon filled with sterilized water at the tip. This balloon stops the tip from slipping out. Catheter Foley are commonly made from silicone rubber or natural rubber.
The Coude tip catheter has a slight curve or bend in the insertion tip which makes it easier for some men to thread the catheter past their prostate. This catheter type is also good for anyone with more narrow urethra or those who have urethra blockages.
Hydrophilic catheters have a surface that binds water and helps reduce abrasion upon insertion and use. Because of this, the chances of urinary tract infections are drastically reduced. This type of catheter does not require additional lubricant.
No matter which type of catheter is necessary, from catheter Foley to coude catheters, Bard can provide people with the best products available on the market.
