Catheters are used to drain the bladder of individuals whose bladder does not drain normally. Catheter supplies are catheters and the products that are used to insert or remove a catheter, and maintain catheter function. Catheter supplies for home use are divided into Intermittent Catheters, Male External Catheters,and Foley Catheters. Each type has different instructions for use and uses different supplies to accomplish catheterization. The goal of each type catheter is to accomplish adequate bladder drainage while maintaining skin integrity and minimizing urinary tract infections. Intermittent catheters are designed to insert, drain the bladder, and be removed several times a day, so the catheter does not stay in the bladder. Foley catheters are designed to remain in the bladder for up to a month for continual drainage. External catheters are not inserted through the urethra. They are securely attached to the skin and remain in place for up to 24 hours of bladder drainage. Urinary catheter drainage bags, catheter lubricants, antiseptic wipes, skin protection wipes, and other urological supplies are used to support catheter drainage of the bladder.
