Bardex is a brand of foley catheters manufactured by Bard. Catheters are designed to drain urine from the body for those who cannot control their bladder function. A foley catheter is kept in place using a balloon that fills with sterile water after it is inserted. This type of catheter is also called an indwelling catheter because it can remain in place for a longer period of time. Bardex offers foley catheters made of latex as well as silicone. A silicone foley catheter is ideal for those that are sensitive to latex. Bardex also makes an infection control catheter that has an antimicrobial coating to protect against UTIs.
