    IME there's often urine in the leg bag extension tubing. Looks like the linked stuff has a device at the end of the tubing where it connects to the catheter. I can see how a one-way valve to...

    The opening pressure of the one-way valves is normally tiny. Virtually any liquid present will empty into the bag. A six? inch water column in the tubing should rush right through and down. Something...

    I don't know any bags that are vented. Colostomy bags, yes, but urinary bags? Show me one please. And I can't imagine why they would be vented or how they could discriminate between gas and liquids.

    There is no way to measure volume short of draining into a graduated container, but unless you're logging urine output, it's a non-issue.

    The bag empties pretty completely when I drain it.
    It holds a hell of a lot when it gets spherical but it's like a bomb to drain:) At least it's good to know that it will hold that much because I've...
