Bardia 3-way Foley Catheter (30cc balloon)18FR, 123418,Box of 10
The BARDIA, continuous irrigation foley catheter - A 3 way latex foley catheter with silicone elastomer coating for more efficient continuous irrigation.
A specially formulated silicone elastomer coating is bonded to the inner and outer surfaces of the catheter, and remains on the catheter. The BARDIA silicone elastomer coating will not peel or weep. It minimizes encrustation, protects against irritation and enhances overall patient comfort.
Tip and Eye:
Round smooth tip facilitates insertion and helps reduce irrigation of the urethral mucosa. multiple dipped latex construction helps inhibit tip buckle, with two large drainage eyes to promote efficient drainage and one irrigation eye positioned to reduce the risk of kinking.
Individually made and pretested to ensure strength and symmetry, the balloon is manufactured separately to minimize potential for occlusion of the inflation eye, a problem associalted with the use of masking compounds in the manufacturing process. Bard foley balloons hold the catheter tip upright to facilitate drainage.
Shaft and Drainage Lumen:
Special latex formulation and multiple dip process provide flexibility with strong walls to resist kinking and collapse. The three lumen multi - dipped shaft reduces potential for drainage lumen collapse under the pressure of aspiration by the syringe. Round, silicone elastomer coated drainage lumen, enhances flow rate and resists encrustation.
Drainage and Irrigation Funnels/inflation Valve:
Drainage funnel is designed with thick tapered walls to provide secure cnection to drainage tube and to help eliminate kinking and collapse during aspiration. Irrigation funnel is thick walled to provide dependable, snug fit for irrigation syringe or fluid connectors. Inflation valve accomodates a leur tip or luer lock syringe. Self - sealing for confidence and color coded for visualisation of the French size.
