Removal of Foley Catheter (Female) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Please watch this entire video before removing your catheter. This video will teach you how to empty your Foley bag, and remove your Foley catheter. A Foley catheter is a thin rubber tube that runs from your bladder to a Foley bag that collects urine. A balloon filled with water holds the catheter in place. A syringe removes water from the balloon through the balloon port. Removing your Foley catheter involves emptying your Foley bag, deflating the balloon, and removing your catheter. You will need: disposable gloves; a syringe for removing the water from the balloon; and a clean cloth, or paper towels, to clean up spills. Be sure to keep the Foley bag lower than your hips to allow the urine to drain out of your bladder and into the bag. Step 1: Wash your hands with soap and water, and then dry them. Step 2: Hold the bottom of the Foley bag over a toilet. Step 3: Open the drain valve. Urine will begin draining from the bag. Empty the urine from the bag. Step 4: Close the valve. Now you will begin removing the catheter. Step 5: Wash your hands with soap and water again, and then dry them. Step 6: Put on disposable gloves. Step 7: Unclip the catheter from your leg. Step 8: Hold the balloon port tubing in one hand. Firmly push the end of the syringe into the balloon port and twist until you make a tight connection. Water from the balloon begins filling the syringe. Step 9: When the balloon is empty, relax take a deep breath, and gently pull on the calculator to remove it. Do not pull hard. If gentle pulling does not remove the catheter, contact your health care provider. After you remove the catheter, drink plenty of water to create the urge to urinate and ease burning when passing urine. Contact your surgeon if: you have any questions about your Foley catheter; your temperature is 101 degrees Fahrenheit or higher; your bladder feels full but you see no urine draining into the Foley bag; you cannot remove your catheter with gentle pulling; your urine is cloudy, has a foul odor; or you see a lot of blood in urine. it is normal to see a small amount of blood in your urine after removing a Foley catheter. Also contact your surgeon if: you cannot urinate within eight hours after removing the Foley catheter; you feel burning, or pain, when urinating that lasts longer than 24 hours; your stomach feels bloated or painful; you feel the need to urinate more often than normal; or your bladder doesn't feel empty after urinating.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

Karen M. Talbot
Silverman Bernheim & Vogel, P.C.
Philadeplphia, PA

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
