Side-view diagram of male urinary tract with Foley catheter in place to drain urine. The Foley catheter consists of two tubes for fluids flowing in and out of the bladder. A balloon near the tip of the catheter holds the catheter in place in the bladder. A tube entering the urethra at the tip of the penis allows water to flow into the bladder from the hanging bottle. An arrow shows the direction of the water flow. Arrows emerging away from the tip of the catheter in the bladder show water flowing out of the catheter. A tube emerging out of the urethra allows fluids to drain into a sterile bag. An arrow shows the direction of flow toward the sterile bag.
