Model Number: NH-03847

Brand: Niche Healthcare 

Clear silicone Foley catheters with radiopaque tip are biocompatible, so they have a minimal chance of destroying surrounding tissue or
becoming encrusted and causing irritation and infection.
The clear design of the body and funnel allows you to see potential blockage.
Other features include a balloon, which provides strength, symmetry and elasticity, and a large internal lumen for maximum drainage,
less traumatization and easier expulsion of clots. Catheters are sterile and individually packaged.

Description

A silicone Foley catheter is a type of urinary catheter made from silicone, a flexible and durable material. Foley catheters are used to drain urine from the bladder when normal urine flow is impeded, such as in cases of surgery, injury, or certain medical conditions. The Foley catheter is a hollow tube with an inflatable balloon at one end, which is inserted into the bladder through the urethra.

Key features of silicone Foley catheters include:

Material: Silicone is a type of rubber-like material that is biocompatible and resistant to degradation. Silicone catheters are known for their flexibility and softness, making them more comfortable for patients.

Inflatable Balloon: At the tip of the catheter, there is an inflatable balloon. Once the catheter is properly placed in the bladder, the balloon is inflated with sterile water to anchor the catheter in place, preventing it from slipping out unintentionally.

Drainage Holes: Multiple drainage holes are present along the length of the catheter, allowing urine to flow from the bladder into the catheter and then into a collection bag.

Sizes: Silicone Foley catheters come in various sizes to accommodate different patient needs. The size is typically measured in French units (Fr), with larger numbers indicating larger catheter diameters.

Biocompatibility: Silicone is well-tolerated by the body, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or irritation. This makes silicone catheters suitable for long-term use.

Radiopacity: Some silicone Foley catheters are radiopaque, meaning they can be visualized on X-rays. This feature assists healthcare professionals in confirming the catheter’s correct placement.

Silicone Foley catheters are often preferred in certain clinical situations, such as when a patient has a known latex allergy, as silicone is latex-free. Additionally, they are suitable for patients requiring long-term catheterization due to their durability and resistance to encrustation.

It’s important to note that the use of Foley catheters should be under the guidance of a healthcare professional, and proper care and hygiene are crucial to prevent complications such as infections.
