Bardex Uncoated All Silicone Foley Catheter
2-Way, 30cc Balloon
The Bardex Uncoated Silicone Foley Catheters is a perfect latex-free alternative for indwelling catheters. It is easy to use, and available in a variety of sizes.
- Ensure that the Bard Foley catheter balloon is positioned well within the patient's bladder.
- Slowly, with a gentle, constant force, inflate the Bard Foley catheter balloon with the volume prescribed on the package.
- Note that a 30cc balloon must be inflated with 35cc of sterile water.
- Improperly inflated Bard Foley catheter balloons may cause drainage and deflation difficulties.
- Select a luer slip syringe.
- Slide the plunger of the syringe up and down the barrel of the syringe several times to "loosen it up."
- Compress the plunger all the way and then pull back the plunger slightly so that it does not adhere to the front of the syringe barrel.
- Gently insert the syringe in the catheter valve.
- Do not use more force than is required to make the syringe "stick" in the valve.
- Allow the pressure within the balloon to force the plunger back and fill the syringe with water.
- If you notice slow or no deflation, re-seat the syringe gently.
- Once again, allow the balloon to deflate slowly on its own.
- If the balloon does not deflate, reposition the patient.
- Ensure that the catheter is not in traction-the proximal end of the catheter is not compressed within the bladder neck.
- Ensure that urine flows freely.
- Attempt to deflate the balloon by using the pressure in the balloon to force water into the syringe as described above.
- If the balloon still fails to deflate, apply very gentle, slow aspiration. Aspiration that is too rapid, or too forceful, may cause the inflation lumen within the Foley catheter to collapse.
- If permitted by hospital protocol, the valve arm may be severed.
- If this fails, contact an adequately trained professional for assistance, as directed by hospital protocol.
