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:
"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."

"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury lawyers."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."
