bladder irrigation
May 09, 2018

Bladder irrigation is the use of catheters to infuse the solution into the bladder, and then drains the poured fluid using the siphon principle.


1. For patients with indwelling catheters, keep their urine drained.

2. Clear the blood clots, mucous, bacteria and other foreign bodies in the bladder.

3. Treatment of certain bladder conditions, such as cystitis, bladder tumors.

Common method editing

(1) Closed flushing method: the infusion bottle is rinsed, rinsed with liquid or in an infusion bottle, and hung on the infusion stand beside the bed. The height of the bottle is about 1 meter from the patient's pelvis, followed by the infusion tube, followed by the three links. Connected with the urinary catheter and the drainage tube, the three-way height is slightly lower than that of the pubic symphysis plane, so as to facilitate the emptying of the bladder fluid. During flushing, the drainage tube was first clipped, and the irrigation solution was infused at a rate of 60 drops/minute. After each injection of 100 ml, the infusion tube was opened and the drainage tube was opened. The flushing fluid flowed out, and the flushing was repeated 3-4 times.

(2) Open flushing method: Use a bladder flusher or a large syringe. Separate the indwelling urethra or cystostomy tube joints during each flush, and use a sterile gauze to wrap the distal drainage tube aside for catheterization. After sterilizing the end of the tube or bladder fistula catheter, place it on a sterile gauze pad, attach the rinse device to the end of the catheter, slowly infuse the rinse solution, and then let it flow naturally or slowly. This is repeated until the effluent is clear. After the flushing is completed, the distal drainage tube is flushed once, and then the catheter or cystostomy is continued to drain.
