A Foley is a catheter with two channels and one tube. The first channel drains urine into a collection
bag, while the other channel has a valve on the outside end and connects to a balloon at the inside tip.
The balloon is inflated with sterile water when it lies inside the bladder to prevent the catheter from
slipping out. A Foley is meant to be in place for no longer than three months.
Traditional straight catheters are inserted once and discarded when the bladder has been emptied. McKesson 2-Way 100% Silicone Foley is ideal for patients with latex allergies and longer-term catheterization. Silicone provides chemical and thermal stability, low surface tension
