The BARDEX® I.C. anti-infective latex Foley catheter is clinically proven to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections. Incorporating a technologically-advanced formulation consisting of Bacti-Guard®* silver alloy coating and BARD® hydrogel, the BARDEX® I.C. Foley catheter dramatically reduces bacterial adherence and minimizes biofilm formation.
Tiemann - Coude-tipped catheters are used to navigate the male urethra, particularly when a stricture is present. The Olive coude of this model features a slightly larger bulb at the tip to assist in negotiation of restrictions. (0102SI, 0103SI)
Carson - Coude-tipped catheters are used to navigate the male urethra, particularly when a stricture is present. The Olive coude of this model features a slightly larger bulb at the tip to assist in negotiation of restrictions. (0168SI)
Councill - Most often used to treat acute retention in emergency situations. The unique feature is the reinforced hole at the tip of the catheter. The tip designed to accommodate the standard Councill tip stylet (#000437) or the Heyman System Councill stylet (#042900). Once dilated, the stricture or prostate often will not stay open, continuing to restrict or stop flow. A Councill Foley catheter solves this problem until a surgical intervention can be performed.
