Bardia Latex Foley Catheters, manufactured by Bard, are rigid latex catheters that are coated in a silicone elastic polymer that serves as a hydrophobic material that rejects moisture, reducing irritation to the urethra. Latex Foley Catheters are made with 2 way design and opposing eyes for drainage. Indwelling urinary catheters are sterile and designed for single use. This catheter may provide continuous use for up to 2 weeks.
It is indicated for use in the drainage and/or collection and/ or measurement of urine. Generally drainage is accomplished by inserting the catheter through the urethra and into the bladder. However, drainage is sometimes accomplished by suprapubic or other placement of the catheter, such as a nephrostomy tract.
