Urinary catheterization is one of the most commonly performed procedures in healthcare, which allows the patient's urine to drain freely from the bladder. The procedure may be used for diagnostic purposes or therapeutically - for example, to relieve urinary retention, instill medication, or provide lavage. During the catheterization procedure, a latex, polyurethane, or silicone tube known as a urinary catheter is inserted into a patient's bladder via the urethra. While the basic principles underlying urethral catheterization are gender-neutral, this module covers the technique of female bladder catheterization, including certain aspects of the procedure that require attention in the female urethra. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers a scenario that tests your ability to perform a female bladder catheterization. Practice the steps of the procedure as often as you want until you are confident.
