Avoiding Infections With Urinary Catheters

There are some people who are more prone to urinary tract, bladder and kidney infections than other people. These causes for these different infections are typically varied, although an infection of E. Coli is often seen in these infections. However, the urinary catheter can help to prevent these infections. This is because the catheter helps to remove urine from the bladder immediately after it enters the bladder, preventing a build up in infectious material.

There are many different causes for urinary tract, bladder and kidney infections. Overall, the primary cause is due to the presence of E. coli in the body. This often appears in the body if the individual fails to wipe appropriately. It also occurs if one engages in oral intercourse and the partner pushes the bacteria into the body accidentally. While the body would normally simply push the bacterium out, there are some factors that might make the presence of these bacteria a serious concern.

A lot of people have a tendency to hold their urine and wait to void until they find a more convenient time. This gives the bacterium a lot of time to reproduce and imbed itself into the tissue, creating pockets of infectious material. The act of holding one’s urine also causes the urine to increase in acidity. This damages the tissue that encloses the urine and opens it up to the bacterium. In the worst case scenarios, the urine can run back up to the kidneys and cause these to become infected as well.

With the use of the catheter, the chances for the bacterium to find its way into the body is limited. As well are the chances that the tissue will become infected due to the damage that the urine can do to the tissues because the urine does not sit in the bladder or kidneys. This can help to make a person’s life far less painful and uncomfortable as the infection is very painful and the antibiotics can make people very sick.

With the latest medical news in catheters being how easy they are to use and how one does not have to worry about reusing catheters, this makes the process of using these catheters significantly easier and less stressful. Now one does not have to choose between the potential discomfort of an infection and the constant discomfort of a catheter. Now one can truly live in comfort and experience a truly normal life.
