Foley Catheter

A Foley catheter is a rubber pipe used to drain urine from the bladder when a patient is unable to do so naturally. It consists of a soft, plastic, flexible rubber tube with an inflatable balloon at the end and is inserted into the bladder through the urethra. The balloon is inflated with sterile water to secure the catheter in place and prevent leakage. Foley catheters are commonly used in hospitals, clinics, and home care settings to manage urinary retention, facilitate accurate urine output measurements, or assist in certain medical procedures. At Akhil Health and Home Care, trained professionals provide Foley catheter insertion and management services with utmost care, ensuring patient comfort and safety.
