Are You A Urological Customer?
You are considered a urological customer if you have a permanent impairment of urination & use catheters to remove urine from your body.
The two major reasons for this are:
Permanent Urinary Retention
This is the inability to empty the bladder completely. Urinary retention can be acute or chronic. Acute urinary retention happens suddenly and lasts only a short time. People with acute urinary retention cannot urinate at all, even though they have a full bladder. Chronic urinary retention can be a long-lasting medical condition. People with chronic urinary retention can urinate. However, they do not completely empty all of the urine from their bladders. Often people are not even aware they have this condition until they develop another problem, such as urinary incontinence—loss of bladder control, resulting in the accidental loss of urine—or a urinary tract infection (UTI), an illness caused by harmful bacteria growing in the urinary tract.
Permanent Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is the inability to control urination. It may be temporary or permanent, and can result from a variety of problems in the urinary tract.
Urinary incontinence is generally divided into four types:
- Stress incontinence
- Urge incontinence
- Overflow incontinence
- Functional incontinence
