How can one prevent UTIs Associated with Intermittent Catheterization?
Joseph - 8/14/2014 12:17:43 AM

  • Maintenance of hygiene, particularly of the hands and perineum
    a. Hands should be thoroughly washed before attempting catheterization.
    b. The genitalia should be washed daily with soap and water and always cleansed from front to back.
    c. Preferable to perform catheterization before bowel program to minimize E. coli bacteria contamination of the urethra.
    d. Immediate perineal hygiene is recommended after vaginal intercourse because the act of intercourse may push anal bacteria into the urethra.
    e. Avoid spermicidal lubricants in sexually active females because these products may alter normal vaginal and lower urethral flora.
  • Teach male patients the correct positioning of the male urethra during insertion of the catheter to minimize trauma as the catheter passes through curved portions of the urethra.
  • Be careful to avoid touching the tip of the catheter and/or letting it touch other surfaces.
  • Use a generous amount of lubricant along the length of the catheter (especially males) since dry catheters may cause excoriations in the urethra, leading to an entry point for bacteria contamination.
  • Keep bladder as empty as possible by having patients catheterize at least four to six times a day or to maintain bladder urine volume less than or equal to 400 ml.
  • Keeping the bladder as empty as possible will prevent over-distension of the bladder and increases in intravesical pressure that can lead to inadequate blood supply to the bladder wall.
  • Encourage use of a new catheter each time performing intermittent catheterization. Most catheters are manufactured and packaged for single-sterile use.

What are the Indications for Intermittent Catheterization?
Donald - 8/8/2014 12:35:54 AM
answer image
  • Intermittent catheterization is the preferred method of catheterization in patients who have bladder dysfunction, specifically neurogenic bladder. Lower urinary tract symptoms of neurogenic bladder include either UI or incomplete bladder emptying and urinary retention caused by outlet obstruction, poor detrusor contraction, or compliance.
  • In patients with a spinal cord injury, intermittent catheterization preserves renal function, reduces UI, improves bladder emptying, and reduces the incidence of UTI, leading to a better prognosis and improved quality of life.
  • Intermittent catheterization should be considered in children with myelomeningocele and neurogenic bladder to reduce the risk of urinary tract deterioration.
