The comprehensive range of versatile urine collection systems offers reliable care in instrumental urinary drainage or when using condom urinals.
All urine bags within the Urimed® bag range are equipped with a non-return valve and an universal connector.
Micturition is a natural consequence of hydration.
Persons who are not able to control the act of micturition (e.g. patients during/after surgical procedures or paraplegics) need to be supported by medical products which allow for hygienic drainage and collection of urine.
For urine drainage of > 3 days, a closed urine drainage system with anti-reflux valve, sampling port and vented drip chamber must be used to reduce the risk of retrograde bacterial infection. If the quantity of urine has to be measured to monitor the fluid balance of an ICU patient urine measurement systems have to be applied which consist of a rigid measuring container adapted to a flexible collection bag. Accessories are needed to combine the different catheters and collection containers or to fix the containers to the bed frames.
Intermittent self-catheterisation is the act of passing a catheter into the bladder to drain urine. It is a technique that may be carried out by the individual himself or by health care professionals.
The bladder must have the capacity to store urine adequately between catheterisations. Regular and timely catheterisation prevents over-distension of the bladder and helps reduce infection. In the context of chronic urinary retention, Intermittent Catheterisation is a safe and effective procedure.
