Removal of Foley Catheter (Male) - 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 one. Wash your hands with soap and water and then dry them. Step two. Hold the bottom of the Foley bag over a toilet. Step three. Open the drain valve. Urine will begin draining from the bag. Empty the urine from the bag. Step four. Close the valve. Now you will begin removing the catheter. Step five. Wash your hands with soap and water again and then dry them. Step six. Put on disposable gloves. Step seven. Unclip the catheter from your leg. Step eight. 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 nine. When the balloon is empty, relax, take a deep breath, and gently pull on the catheter 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 your 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:
"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C.
Bridgeport, CT

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."

David J. Dean
Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo, P.C.
New York, NY

"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."
