Female Urinary Catherization Simulator
The Female Urinary Catheterization Simulator allows learners to perform bladder catheterization just as they would on a real patient. The normal feeling of resistance and pressure will be experienced as a lubricated catheter is passed through the urethra, past the sphincter, and into the bladder. When the catheter enters the bladder, artificial urine (colored water) will flow from the catheter as it would with a real patient. This simulator is the torso of a middle-aged woman with thighs abducted for proper position during catheterization. The external genitalia and perineum are molded in lifelike form. The labia minora can be spread apart naturally to reveal the clitoris, urethral opening, and vaginal introitus.
A Foley catheter can be used if extreme care is taken to inflate the cuff only when it is in the proper position. Just as in a real patient, the cuff must be completely deflated before the catheter is removed. Improper use of a Foley can result in damage to the simulator, just as when using a Foley catheter with a real patient.
