Collection: Catheter Passports
A urinary catheter is a flexible tube used to empty the bladder and collect urine in a drainage bag.
Urinary catheters are usually inserted by a doctor or nurse.
They can either be inserted through the tube that carries urine out of the bladder (urethral catheter) or through a small opening made in your lower tummy (suprapubic catheter).
The catheter usually remains in the bladder, allowing urine to flow through it and into a drainage bag.
