What does CATH mean or stand for ?
A CATH catheter is a medical rubber tube that is inserted into the genital urinary duct until it reaches the bladder.By doing this urine can be directly emptied in a bag which is mostly hung on the bed hook of the incapacitated person.
People who cannot walk for a variety of reasons or maybe bed ridden in hospital are made to use this CATH to relieve themselves.It is also used in surgery because the patient has to be immobile during the procedure.
