OPTIFLO® Irrigation Solution - Bard Care

OPTIFLO® Irrigation Solution

Up to 50% of catheterised patients may experience blockage of their Foley Catheter.1 Once the cause of catheter blockage has been confirmed as encrustation due to crystal formation or debris then treatment with OPTIFLO® Irrigation Solution can be planned to coincide wherever possible with leg bag changes. OPTIFLO® Irrigation Solution is individually packed for a choice of single or sequential use and is available in three key solutions:

  • OPTIFLO® G (Suby G - 3.23% citric acid)
  • OPTIFLO® R (Solution R - 6% citric acid)
  • OPTIFLO® S (0.9% saline)


  • More effective in dissolving encrustation2
  • Reduces nursing time
  • Less potential damage to bladder mucosa
