Incontinence Device Application, Male

Incontinence Device Application, Male

Many patients don’t require an indwelling urinary catheter to manage their incontinence. For male patients, a male incontinence device, also known as a condom catheter or penile sheath, reduces the risk of urinary tract infection from catheterization, promotes bladder retraining when possible, helps prevent skin breakdown, and improves the patient’s self-image. The device consists of a condom catheter secured to the shaft of the penis and connected to a leg bag or drainage bag. It has no contraindications but can cause skin irritation and edema.

Preparation of Equipment

Fill the basin with lukewarm water. Then, bring the basin and the remaining equipment to the patient’s bedside.
