Bard PureWick Female External Catheter is designed to provide a simple, noninvasive option for women’s urine management. This flexible and contoured catheter positions between the labia and gluteal muscles to maintain an entirely external method, making things easier for caregivers and providing more comfort for the patient. Bard External Female Catheter is simple and intuitive for the user, comfortable and contoured for the patient, and can be used while the patient is lying down, seated, and even asleep. The Purewick catheter one-size-fits-most design makes this a great choice for hospital use.
How PureWick Works
PureWick Female External Catheter by Bard works with a low-pressure vacuum, such as DeVilbiss Suction Aspirator Machines, that pulls the urine. The urine makes its way through the vinyl tubing and eventually arrives at the storage container that keeps the urine away from the body. The wicks are comfortably positioned between the labia and gluteus muscles noninvasively.
