Foley Catheter Insertion

A Foley catheter or urinary catheter is used to gain access to the bladder in order to drain its contents, remove urine and decompress the bladder, obtain a specimen for diagnosis, and introduce a passage into the GU tract. This will allow you to treat urinary retention, and bladder outlet obstruction.
