Catheter – guide to problem solving in primary care

Problems with the urinary catheter are frequently encountered by the on-call GP and OOH clinicians. This trouble shooting guide from the Bristol Urological Institute can help you resolve some common issues with catheter-related problems.

Most catheter problems can be resolved by washing out or changing the catheter. Any other
problems may require referral. Suprapubic catheters, if they fall out, must be replaced as a
matter of urgency to prevent the tract from closing up.
This guide aims to give simple information for the management of many of the
catheter related problems the urology service are contacted about daily that can be
managed very simply.
