Poiesis Duette Dual balloon Catheter is crafted entirely from silicone and functions as a self-retaining balloon catheter, ensuring a secure and comfortable method for catheterization. This inventive dual-balloon configuration offers distinct advantages compared to conventional Foley catheters, as it mitigates the risk of bladder trauma associated with their uncoated tips and drainage aspiration.

Why choose Poiesis Duette Foley Catheter?

  • Drainage eyes located between two balloons minimize aspiration damage
  • Second distal balloon, positioned on the tip of the catheter, adds another layer of comprehensive infection control
  • Subsumed Tip is inserted and removed just like a standard Foley catheter

Features of Poiesis Duette Dual balloon Catheter

  • 10cc Retention Balloon and 5cc Bladder Protection Balloon for ultimate in comfort and safety.
  • An additional layer of comprehensive care is added by the second distal balloon, which is placed on the catheter tip.
  • This design reduces the incidences of CAUTI (catheter-associated urinary tract infection) by cushioning the tip to prevent trauma to the defensive bladder wall lining.
  • The position of the drainage eyes is between the two balloons that reduce aspiration damage to the bladder’s defensive lining.
  • The Duette is designed to be inserted and removed similar to a standard Foley catheter. Also, it requires little new training of medical personnel.


How is Duette Catheter Better than Traditional Foley Catheters?

  • Mechanical irritation of Foley catheter damages the healthy bladder wall that is made up of layers with anti-bacterial properties for resisting infection, thereby disrupting these innate defenses
  • Emptying bladder collapsing on the Foley tip results in such a trauma that breaks down the protective lining of the bladder wall
  • Duette 2 Way Foley Catheter is manufactured with new, flexible materials
  • Fashioned with 2 inflatable balloons that secure the catheter within the bladder
  • Built with two lumens, where the first allows for the balloon to be inflated with sterile water while the second allows for the drainage of urine from the bladder
  • Designed to reduce the adverse events from Foley urinary catheters, resulting in improved outcomes and better patient care with reduced health care costs


When to use Poiesis Duette Dual balloon catheter?

Duette Catheter reduces incidences of many catheter-related problems like:

  • Cystitis (inflammation of the bladder lining)
  • Chronic irritation of the bladder, which has been shown to increase the risk of bladder cancer between 8-10 percent
  • CAUTI and UTIs
  • Blockage of urine
  • Penetration and perforation of the bladder wall
  • Hematuria (blood in the urine)
  • Patient pain levels during catheterization
  • Painful bladder spasms
  • Urine leakage around the Foley catheter
  • Increased degree of sepsis


Duette Closed System Structural Design

Duette closed system architecture is essential. You should report any kinks or leaks in the tubing. If the bag becomes full do notify the caregiver or nurse. Do not let the bag or draw-off outlet tube touch the floor at any time. The closed system comprises of:

  • Anchor balloon inflated with sterile water succeeding insertion preserves proper position of the catheter
  • Protection balloon inflated with sterile water succeeding insertion safeguards the bladder wall from the catheter tip
  • Catheter drainage tube requiring down-hill flow of urine
  • Inflation ports
  • Draw-off outlet tube
  • Urine collection bag

How to remove Duette Two-Way Foley Catheter?

  • Deflate balloon by inserting a luer slip syringe gently into the Size Color Coded Non-BLACK inflation/deflation port, allowing water to flow into the syringe barrel. Do not apply more force than required to make the syringe stick in the valve. If slow or no deflation occurs, gentle aspiration may be necessary
  • Empty the syringe and insert into BLACK inflation/ deflation port. Repeat deflation process
  • Remove catheter according to Institution guidelines

Precautions while using Duette Catheter

  • Vigorous aspiration may collapse the inflation lumen and prevent balloon deflation. If no deflation occurs, the valve arm may be severed if permitted by institution protocol. If this fails, qualified personnel should be contacted for assistance
  • Do not try to aspirate urine through the drainage funnel wall. Inflate balloons using luer slip-adapter syringe
  • Do not use needles. Maximum catheter inflation capacity with sterile water: 10 ml/cc per balloon
  • This product may be a potential biohazard after use
  • Handle and dispose of in accordance with acceptable medical practice and applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations
  • Never pull, twist, or disconnect your catheter or drainage bag tubing.
  • Immediately notify your caregiver if you notice any leakage in the system.
  • Drainage bag must remain below the level of your bladder.
  • Do not place bag on its side always keep drainage bag in an upright position
  • Notify the nurse if the drainage bag becomes full. Do not empty the drainage bag yourself.

Seek for medical help immediately if:

  • If your urine is cloudy, foul smelling, or has bright red blood in it
