Catheterization Of The Urinary Bladder (Foley Catheterization), A Primer on Critical Care for Patients and Their Families Critical Care Assembly of the American Thoracic Society:"A "Foley" catheter (or thin hollow tube) is placed in the bladder to let urine drain from the bladder. The Foley catheter can help patients who are too ill to pass water on their own. It also helps make sure that all urine is measured in patients who need very careful fluid balance. Common reasons for its use and benefits: Measurement of urine - In many critical illnesses, the amount of urine that patients make every hour provides an important measure of how they are doing. Even in a patient who is able to pass water, sometimes a Foley catheter is used when it is important to know exactly how much urine that a patient is making every hour."

eMedicine - Foley Catheter : Article by Arasi Thangavelu-Veluswamy, MD:"Foley Catheter - In use since 1937, a Foley catheter is a thin, sterile tube inserted into your bladder to drain urine. Because it can be left in place in the bladder for a period of time, it is also called an indwelling catheter. It is held in place with a balloon at the end, which is filled with sterile water.

Veterinary (animal) Catheterizations:

Small Animal Diagnostic and Therapeutic Techniques, urinary Catheterization of the dog (pictures, photographs included):"There are several types of urinary catheters available. The top catheter is a stainless steel catheter used only in female dogs. It is sometimes called a "bitch" catheter. The second catheter from the top of the screen is a Foley catheter. Foley catheters have an inflatable bulb at the end that can be filled with air or fluid (~3-5 ml) to retain the tip of the catheter within the bladder. Foley catheters are too short to reach the bladder of male dogs. The third catheter is a semi-rigid plastic (polypropylene) urinary catheter. This catheter type can be used in either sex. The bottom catheter is a red rubber feeding tube that can be used as a urinary catheter in either sex dog. The smaller diameter red rubber catheters (10 Fr)may not be long enough to reach the bladder of large male dogs."
