Catheter care

With initial catheterization of a distended bladder, never allow more than 750cc to drain at one time.  Clamp for 20-30 minutes and continue drainage (prevents patient from going into simulated hypovolemic shock).

Catheter tubing should be over the patient's leg, not under.

Catheter must always be stabilized by taping or using company prepared velcro leg straps to attach to leg. In male may also be attached to abdomen

FOR MALE, REMBEMBER TO CONSIDER POSSIBLE REFLEX ERECTION THAT MAY PULL ON CATHETER – LEAVE ADDITIONAL LENGTH BEFORE TAPING.
