What Is a Urine Leg Bag?
The urine leg bag is used to hold the urine that drains from the urinary tube. It suits your clothes and allows you to do your daily activities.
How do I use the urine leg bag?
Wash your hands before and after touching the catheter, tubing, or drainage bag. Use soap and water. This reduces the risk of infection.
Tie the leg bag on the thighs or calves. Make sure the shoulder straps are comfortable. If the strap is too tight, it can cause blood flow problems in the legs.
Before connecting the drainage tube to the catheter, clean the tip of the drainage tube with alcohol. This helps prevent bacteria from entering the catheter.
The connecting tube should not pull on the catheter. If you keep pulling on the catheter, the skin will break.
Check the tube frequently to make sure it is not kinked or twisted. Blocked pipes can cause urine to flow back into the bladder. Your urine must flow directly into your leg bag through the tube.
Always put the leg bag under the bladder. This prevents urine from the bag from entering the bladder, which may cause infection.
When the leg bag is half full, or emptied every 3 hours. The full bag may rupture or disconnect from the catheter.
Change it to your bedside bag before going to bed. Your bedside bag can hold more urine. Do not use your leg bag at night because it may become too full or crack.
Wash the leg bag after each use. Fill the bag with 2 parts vinegar and 3 parts water. Soak for 20 minutes, then rinse and dry. Follow the instructions of the medical service provider to replace the leg bag with a new one.
