The BARDEX® I.C. Infection Control Foley Catheters are clinically proven to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections. By incorporating a technologically-advanced formulation consisting of BACTI-GUARD® silver alloy coating and BARD® hydrogel, the BARDEX® I.C. Foley catheter dramatically reduces bacterial adherence and minimizes biofilm formation. We highly recommend these foley catheters to midwives as they provide additional anti-bacterial properties to help prevent the development of bacteria causing infections.
Foley catheters have often been used for labor induction as a means of rippening and dilating the cervix. In order to achieve this, the tip is placed into the opening of the cervix, and the balloon is gently inflated. The balloon places an even amount of pressure on the cervix with the intetion of releasing local prostaglandins that can ripen the cervix. For some women, the catheter will induce contractions and in other situations it may dilate the cervix anywhere from 3 cm to 4 cm.
