Urinary catheterization is one of the most commonly performed procedures in healthcare, to allow the patient's urine to drain freely from the bladder for collection. When placement of a urethral catheter is contraindicated or unsuccessful, suprapubic urinary bladder catheterization is commonly performed, where the catheter is introduced through an incision in the lower abdomen. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers a scenario that tests your ability to perform a suprapubic bladder catheterization. Practice the steps of the procedure as often as you want until you are confident.

If you are not a medical student or physician, you may prefer the other version of this module, which includes all the procedural information needed by professionals in other roles: /shop/clinical/medicinenursing/urinary-bladder-catheterization/suprapubic-catheterization

You’ll learn

  • to practice and perfect your skills in performing a suprapubic catheterization, while maintaining an aseptic technique
  • to visualize the key anatomical structures used during a suprapubic bladder catheterization, with our 3D anatomy model
  • how to insert the introducer into the bladder
  • to identify the proper catheter type and size
  • how to withdraw the cannula
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)

The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
