How to care For your condom drainage What is a condom drainage? A condom drainage or external sheath is a urine drainage system for men. You can use a condom drainage to prevent bladder accidents or to help with draining your bladder. How to choose the right condom drainage? It’s important to choose a size that fits properly. Please use the detachable size guide provided by Independence Australia which can be found in this chart. Place the measuring guide at the base of the penis. If between sizes select the larger size. Preparation 1. 2. 3. Application Wash and dry the penis before applying the condom drainage. Before applying the condom drainage, trim pubic hair. Alternatively, use a paper towel or piece of fabric with a hole in the middle as a guard to keep pubic hair away. Don’t use lotions, oils or talc as they may prevent a secure seal against the skin. 1. 2. 3. Gently roll the condom drainage over your penis. If not circumcised ensure the foreskin is pulled forward over the head of the penis before applying. When applying the condom drainage, leave a gap of 5cm from the tip to allow for free flow of urine. The condom drainage should not touch the tip of the penis. Make sure the condom is fitted correctly then connect to the tube of the urine bag. Aftercare Tips on how to prevent infection • Use a new condom drainage every day. • Wash your hands with soap and water before and after doing catheter care. • Remove the condom drainage and wash your penis at least once a day. • Empty the urine bag when it is 75% full. If you have a full sized bag, empty it at least every 8 hours. If you have a smaller leg bag, empty it every 3 to 4 hours. • Remove the sheath whilst showering. (Adding a few drops of shampoo/conditioner may make removal easier) • If there is a problem with the sheath coming off when using an overnight drainage bag, check the bag tubing width. If too small (HB pencil size – S2 bag) it will create backflow and the sheath may come off. Try a bag with a wider tube instead (chalk size - S4 bag) The above information is only a guide. Please consult a medical professional for more detailed continence advice.
