Express Medical Supply carries a wide variety of Bard Catheters, including red rubber catheters and foley catheters. A red rubber catheter is a type of intermittent catheter, meaning it is only inserted while the bladder is draining. A foley catheter is a type of indwelling catheter that is kept in the body for a longer period of time. Bard also makes other products that are used in conjunction with catheters, such as insertion trays, catheter kits, and catheter stabilization devices. Rochester Medical is now a part of the Bard Catheter brand.
A red rubber catheter is a soft, flexible intermittent catheter with a funnel-shaped end. There are small holes on the other end of the catheter, known as eyelets, that allow urine to drain. Red rubber catheters are available in several French sizes so you can find the best fit. They are made of a sterile latex material and are available with a straight tip or coude tip. The tip of the Coude Catheter is slightly slanted, making it ideal for those with urethral obstructions or for men with an enlarged prostate. Both tip styles are smooth and rounded for easy insertion. You can purchase Bard red rubber catheters individually or as part of a kit.
Foley Catheters are also known as indwelling catheters that are available in various French sizes. A foley catheter has a balloon on one end that is filled with sterile water after it is inserted in the body. This helps keep the foley catheter in the proper position. These catheters have an antimicrobial coating to reduce irritation and make insertion more comfortable. Foley catheters can be made of silicone, latex, or latex with a silicone coating. Bard Bardex also makes a foley catheter that contains silver to help control infection. We carry foley catheters with a straight tip and a coude tip to meet your needs.
A Foley Catheter Kit contains the necessary supplies you need to safely and correctly insert your foley catheter. Common items found in insertion trays include gloves, sterile lubricant, and BZK wipes to disinfect the skin. Other supplies include a collection tray and a disposable waterproof underpad. The catheter kits also contain a syringe of sterile water, which will be used to fill the foley balloon. Some insertion trays also include one foley catheter. All of the supplies included in the insertion trays can be purchased individually on our website.
Using a Foley Catheter Securement Device will ensure that your catheter stays in the proper place and will also increase comfort. A securement device prevents the catheter from shifting, which could lead to bladder spasms and urethral damage. Catheter tube holders come in the form of an adhesive foam pad or a leg band. The adhesive pad has a small retainer on the top that the catheter tube sits below. This retainer portion swivels to allow for body movement. The leg bands are available in adhesive styles as well as a cotton strap. The cotton strap is ideal for those with adhesive allergies. All of the catheter holders we carry can be used with latex and silicone Foley catheters.
