Catheter Placement or Replacement

Placement or replacement of a catheter are common medical procedures performed to ensure proper fluid flow or facilitate medical interventions. A catheter is a thin tube inserted into the body through a natural opening or incision to provide access to internal organs.

When is catheter placement performed? 

Catheter placement is typically performed when continuous drainage of urine or other fluids from the body is necessary, such as in individuals who are immobile or have certain medical conditions. Additionally, a catheter may be used to empty the bladder before surgery or other medical procedures.

When is catheter replacement performed? 

Catheter replacement is carried out when there are signs of infection, blockage, or other complications that require changing the catheter. Regular catheter replacement is important for reducing the risk of infections and maintaining optimal hygiene.
