It is hard to fathom what goes into the mind of an immobile patient who suffers from light, moderate or heavy incontinence. The flood of urine around and related lack of hygiene breeds depressive thoughts as well. It is extremely necessary to keep such a patient in the best of hygienic conditions, so much so that he doesn't come in contact with urine. That is effectively done through catheter, tube and urinary drainage bags. Now, earlier these bags were preferred in latex, but since people have realized that leads to infection, vinyl bags began to be preferred. These drainage systems have gone quite a bit of innovation. They have universal adapters to connect with all types of catheters and have significant luer lock tips for effective clipping. They can either be clipped to the bed or connected to metal stands and shafts through Velcro closures. Some come with adherent straps to secure the fastening. This is necessary to keep the patients away from their own urine. Of course, the propylene composition suppresses urinary odor with aplomb and these drainage bags are extremely splash-resistant. It has connector tubing as well and is extremely elastic so it can store more urine than declared. Generally, it contains 1-2 liters of urine; enough for even those with heavy incontinence. These come with flanges for manipulation and two or more closures so you don’t have to handle the same closure again and again. The urine is drained completely and effectively, but still these drainage bags should be disposed after the patient is treated. A bedside drainage bag helps immensely, as patients get the urinary urge more often at night during sleeping. If the system is closed, it means that there is no scope for contamination of any form and that is great for an ambulatory patient is vulnerable to external influences. It may also come with Y-connectors for two-sided drainage at the same time. You also get a sampling port and a flask basin so you know where to drain and you can test-check the process before hand. These bags are coated in vinyl or propylene so it is secure on the outside and has a soft feeling whenever the body comes in contact. The catheter should meanwhile be lubricated so there is minimal pain during insertion. The usage of drainage bags comes later than the voiding one that comes through catheter. There are different sizes of urinary drainage bags to account for patients with different requirements. The tubing length should also be suggestive so that the fluid pathway is not affronted. Catheter should have staggered eyes so there is no vacuum or obstruction in the urinary flow. The drainage may come through twisted closures or sliding bottoms. There are drainage systems available that require only a gentle tap. The bag should ideally have anti-re-flux valve so there is no reversion of fluid, which can be dangerous typically when you deal with indwelling catheters. There are clamp and tube holders connected with drainage bags and it also comes with universal hanger so you know there is no problem for leakage or setting up. What drainage bags effectively do is keep the patient’s adjoining area dry enough; something that catheter does with patient’s skin. Nowadays, some sleek urinary drainage bags are also available so the patient doesn't feel awkward with the bag around him.
