While Pomfort (1991) is the only author who discusses securing UUCs at some length, he does not address the issue of deciding how the UUC should be secured.
Pomfort also notes that since adhesive tape may not adhere to and may cause kinking of the catheter, manufacturers of silicone or silicone elastomer-coated UUCs recommend using commercial-securing devices.
All authors agree that the issue of securing catheters and devices should be investigated more fully, as it is unclear whether UUCs should be secured or not, and if they should, what is the best device to use.
Urologic surgery usually requires a postoperative urethral urinary catheter (UUC) for bladder drainage.
The question of securing a UUC is not effectively addressed in the literature.
The decision as to whether or not an UUC requires securing is largely dependent on the clinician (Pomfort, 1991).
The second part of the paper will identify the strength, but also the vulnerability, of the union vision as it has determined the history of UUCs, emphasizing a context of denominational resistance and even opposition.
The challenge (and gift) that the united and uniting churches offer to the rest of the ecumenical movement is, first of all, the witness of ecclesial spiritual conversion, "the change of heart and holiness of life" that is so present in congregations of the UUCs.(1) They model "the need for continuous repentance for our willingness to be divided..."(2) With courage and perseverance they model their conversion to life in union with one another, and with Christ.
As churches which have moved from division and separation into union, the UUCs also call attention to some of the sources of weakness experienced in the ecumenical movement today.
Thus UUCs have a role that is essential to the life of the ecumenical movement.
Living in this tension, UUCs are gifted with resilience.
