This Female Catheterisation Simulator allows demonstration and practice in urinary catheterisation without embarrassment or discomfort to the patient or the students.
The Catheter Simulator - Female is constructed with a bladder reservoir, patient urethra and a valve simulating the internal urethral sphincter. The normal feeling of resistance and pressure will be experienced as a catheter is passed through the urethra, past the sphincter and into the bladder.
When the catheter enters the bladder, artificial urine (water) will flow from the catheter. This simulator is the torso of a middle-aged woman with thighs abducted for proper position during catheterisation. The external genitalia and perineum are moulded in lifelike form. The labia minora can be spread apart naturally to reveal the clitoris, urethral opening and vaginal introitus.
Note: Deflate cuff completely before the catheter is removed. Improper use of a Foley catheter can result in damage to the simulator. A Fr. Silicone Foley catheter can be used if extreme care is taken to inflate the cuff only when it is in the proper position.
