How to Inflate and Deflate Foley Catheters?

How to Inflate Catheter?

  • Ensure that the Bardia 2-way silicone-elastomer coated Foley catheter balloon is positioned well within the bladder of the patient.
  • Slowly, with a gentle, constant force, inflate the catheter balloon with the volume prescribed on the package.
  • Note that the 5cc balloon must be inflated with 10cc of sterile water.
  • Improperly inflated Bard Foley catheter balloons may cause drainage and deflation difficulties.
  • Using fluid other than sterile water may cause the balloon not to empty properly, especially after long dwell times.

How to deflate Catheter?

  • Choose a luer lock or slip-tip syringe.
  • Gently slide the plunger up and down to loosen it.
  • Fully compress the plunger, then slightly pull it back to prevent adherence.
  • Carefully insert the syringe into the catheter valve.
  • Avoid excessive force, allowing the syringe to stick in the valve.
  • Let the balloon's pressure refill the syringe with water.
  • If deflation is slow or absent, gently re-seat the syringe.
  • If deflation still doesn't occur, reposition the patient and ensure unrestricted urine flow.
  • Attempt gentle aspiration to deflate the balloon.
  • In extreme cases, consult a trained professional or follow hospital protocol.

Things to remember while using Bard Bardia 2-Way Silicone Foley Catheter

  • Do not use ointments or lubricants having a petrolatum base. They will damage the catheter.
  • Visually inspect the product for any imperfections or surface deterioration prior to use.
  • Inflate the balloon with sterile water to the volume stated on the inflation lumen of the catheter by using a water-filled Luer tip syringe.
  • Do not use needle.
  • Do not exceed recommended capacities.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of a Foley catheter?

A Foley catheter is used to drain urine from the bladder when a patient is unable to do so naturally. It can be utilized for various medical conditions, surgeries, or for long-term management of urinary retention.

What's the difference between a luer lock and a slip tip syringe for catheterization?

A luer lock syringe has a screw-on tip for secure attachment, while a slip tip syringe simply slides onto the catheter. The choice depends on personal preference and healthcare provider recommendations.

How can I ensure the balloon of the Foley catheter deflates properly?

To ensure proper deflation, insert the syringe gently, avoid excessive force, and follow the recommended steps for balloon deflation. If issues persist, consult a healthcare professional.

What should I do if the Foley catheter balloon does not deflate as expected?

If the balloon fails to deflate, try repositioning the patient and checking for urine flow obstructions. Gentle aspiration may be attempted, but it's essential to follow proper protocol and consult a healthcare professional as needed.

Is it safe to sever the valve arm if other methods fail to deflate the balloon?

Severing the valve arm should only be done if permitted by hospital protocol and under the guidance of a healthcare professional. It is typically considered a last resort solution.
