In today’s video, I discuss intermittent catheterization IC and spinal cord injury, and share what I know, as a female, about the proper and clean intermittent catheterization procedure. Intermittent catheterization, also known as IC, involves emptying urine from the bladder, which is done by inserting a tube. When a person cannot empty their bladder naturally on their own, the bladder may leak urine or develop very high pressure. It is very important to avoid urinary tract infections when doing catheterizations, as excess urine in the bladder can accumulate germs and bacteria, and the kidneys can be damaged or result in chronic infections as a result of and high bladder pressure. It is usually recommended to do intermittent catheterization 4 to 6 times each day, or every 4 to 6 hours, and you should always empty your bladder as soon as you wake up, and right before going to sleep for the night.
