When you are unable to empty your bladder naturally, a catheter can safely and effectively drain your bladder. Aeroflow Healthcare carries all major brands for catheters and catheter supplies. Whether using an intermittent or indwelling, catheter supplies such as an insertion kit, lubricant, or drainage bags will help your cath experience.
Using an intermittent catheter is an easy process. One of the biggest risks is a urinary tract infection, but an insertion kit reduces the risk. Using a catheter insertion kit is a convenient way to ensure you have a safe and comfortable catheter experience. These kits contain a range of catheter supplies specific to your needs and catheter type.
If you have an indwelling catheter, you will need a catheter drainage bag. There are two types of drainage bags: a leg bag and a large bag. You might want to use both depending on the time of day and what you are doing.
Leg bags are most useful during the day when you are out and about. They are smaller, more discreet, and you can easily attach it to your leg with straps. They can comfortably fit under your pants or dress, making them virtually invisible.
Large drainage bags cover a wider array of bag types including night drainage bags, bedside bags, and wheelchair bags. Because the bags are bigger, you can sleep through the night without worrying about your bag overfilling.
