    I was asked by a colleague if I clamped the foley.? I seem to be getting a mix feedback regarding when to clamp . Any thoughts on this ?

    I've heard to clamp after 500cc, after 1000cc, due to chance of bladder spasms and hypotension. I never clamp it, and have never had a pt suffer any negative effects from it.
