An intermittent catheter is a common solution for urinary retention, or inability to empty urine from the bladder. Intermittent catheters are available in several variations and sizes. There are male catheters, female catheters and pediatric catheters. French catheter size (the outer diameter of the catheter tube) is determined by the clinician, ranging from 6 French (Fr) to 24 Fr.
The bladder's job is to fill, store and empty urine. But when the bladder has trouble storing or emptying urine, or both, intermittent catheterization (IC) may be required. Intermittent catheterization mimics the bladder's natural rhythm allowing the bladder to fill and empty, thereby providing several advantages and health benefits.
Urine naturally fills the bladder when the walls of the bladder relax. When the bladder becomes full, IC is used to completely empty the bladder at regular intervals throughout the day. This prevents urine from remaining in the bladder.
