am-SafeX eliminates urethral injury
The design of a Foley catheter has not changed in the last 80 years. Urethral injury due to inadvertent inflation of the Bulb in the urethra instead of in the bladder is still an issue to be solved, which gives an additional disease to the patient.
As per data, 7-14 male patients out of 1000 catheterizations in the hospitals may suffer this fate. Real-life data may be more alarming.
Every procedure should aim for zero percent of complications.
Am-SafeX is a newly designed Foley Catheter that will provide healthcare professionals with markers for the right time to inflate bulbs, eliminating the risk of urethral injury caused by inadvertent inflation of the bulb in the urethra.
