How can a Robinson catheter help me?
Each type of catheter is designed for its own specific purpose. A foley catheter, for example, includes a bulb at one end to help it stay in the bladder for extended periods of time. The Robinson catheter does not. Therefore, it was designed to be used intermittently, as needed. This would be particularly helpful for patients experiencing urine retention. That occurs when either the bladder muscles cannot contract, or the sphincter muscles cannot relax to excrete urine. This type of patient would use the catheter, like this smooth red rubber catheter, at scheduled times of the day to release the urine from their bladder.
