Urinary Drainage Units
Definition : Prepackaged collections of devices and supplies (i.e., kits) intended to facilitate collection of urine from a patient catheterized with an indwelling catheter. These kits typically include urine drainage tubes and containers; some kits may include other components, such as a metered funnel or drip container or pouch, filters, and/or antireflux valves. Urinary drainage kits are available in closed configurations (usually vented) and in open configurations, including two-chamber types. They are used to collect and dispose of urine from the patient while minimizing damage to the patient urinary system and preventing bacteria infection.
