What to buy with Bard Foley Catheters

How is a Bard Urinary Catheter inflated and deflated?

How to Inflate Bardia Catheter?

  • Ensure that the Bardia 2-way silicone-elastomer coated Foley catheter balloon is positioned well within the bladder of the patient.
  • Slowly inflate the catheter balloon with the volume prescribed on the package with a gentle, constant force.
  • Note that the 5cc balloon must be inflated with 10cc sterile water.
  • Improperly inflated Bard Foley catheter balloons may cause drainage and deflation difficulties.
  • Using fluid other than sterile water may cause the balloon not to empty properly, especially after long dwell times.

How to deflate Bard Foley Catheter?

  • Select a Luer lock or slip tip syringe
  • Slide the plunger of the syringe up and down the barrel of the syringe several times to "loosen it up"
  • Compress the plunger all the way and then pull back the plunger slightly so that it does not adhere to the front of the syringe barrel
  • Gently insert the syringe into the catheter valve
  • Do not use more force than is required to make the syringe "stick" in the valve
  • Allow the pressure within the balloon to force the plunger back and fill the syringe with water
  • If you notice slow or no deflation, re-seat the syringe gently. Once again, allow the balloon to deflate slowly on its own.
  • If the balloon does not deflate, reposition the patient
  • Ensure that the Bardia 2-way silicone-elastomer coated Foley catheter is not traction—the proximal end of the catheter is not compressed within the bladder neck.
  • Ensure that urine flows freely
  • Attempt to deflate the balloon by using the pressure in the balloon to force water into the syringe as described above
  • If the balloon fails to deflate, apply very gentle slow aspiration. An aspiration that is too rapid or too forceful may cause the inflation lumen within the Foley catheter to collapse.
  • If permitted by hospital protocol, the valve arm may be severed
  • If this fails, contact an adequately trained professional for assistance, as directed by hospital protocol


  • Do not use ointments or lubricants having a petrolatum base. They will damage the catheter.
  • Visually inspect the product for any imperfections or surface deterioration prior to use
  • Inflate the balloon with sterile water to the volume stated on the inflation lumen of the catheter by using a water-filled Luer tip syringe
  • Do not use needle
  • Do not exceed recommended capacities
