Urinary catheterization is a common practice during labor following placement of an epidural for pain control, as this form of anesthesia is known to inhibit normal bladder emptying. There is insufficient evidence to guide clinicians in selection of an indwelling catheter versus intermittent straight catheterization during the course of labor.
The goal of this study is to compare two clinically-relevant bladder drainage techniques. This is a randomized controlled trial with a single primary outcome of time to delivery. The results will inform clinical decisions about method of catheterization during labor.

The investigators goal is to create a better understanding of patient reported outcomes for three bladder management strategies (clean intermittent catheterization (CIC), indwelling cathet...
This is an interventional study examining the effects of closed diurnal indwelling catheterization (CDIC) for neurogenic bladder management.
The clinical study evaluates the safety of a new catheter for Urinary Intermittent Catheterisation in self catheterized patients
The purpose of this study is to compare the differences in central venous catheter insertion time, success rate, and complication between the flexible tip straight guidewire and J-tip guid...
ICU patients are at risk for catheter associated urinary tract infection. Frequently patients can't tell clinicians if they need to void if the catheter is removed. If clinicians know that...
OBJECTIVE To test for an association between indwelling urethral catheter placement in cats with urethral obstruction (UO) and the short-term (30-day) risk of recurrent urethral obstruction (RUO). DES...
Patients who have successfully acquired the intermittent self-catheterization (ISC) technique can be expected to use it on a long-term basis. The aim of the present study is to present a validated eva...
Use of indwelling urinary catheter (IUC) in older adults has negative consequences, including delirium.
Clean intermittent catheterization (IC) of the bladder is one example of advanced medical care required by students with special health care needs. The success of a child's intermittent catheterizatio...
Indwelling urinary catheters (IUCs) are commonly used devices in acute care that may lead to catheter-associated urinary tract infections or noninfectious complications. Responsibilities for IUC are u...
Insertion of a catheter into the urethra to drain the urine from the bladder at intervals as needed.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
Insertion of a catheter into a peripheral artery, vein, or airway for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
Employment or passage of a catheter into the URINARY BLADDER (urethral c.) or kidney (ureteral c.) for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.
Introduction of a tube into a hollow organ to restore or maintain patency if obstructed. It is differentiated from CATHETERIZATION in that the insertion of a catheter is usually performed for the introducing or withdrawing of fluids from the body.

Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
