How to use ConvaTec GentleCath Urinary Catheter?

  • Check the catheters integrity prior to insertion. 
  • Select a replacement catheter if required. 
  • Do not use if package has been previously opened or damaged.
  • Do not touch the catheter tip before insertion. 
  • If there is no urine flow or other complications occur (e.g. pain, difficult insertion or removal, bleeding, signs of urinary tract infection or discharge) please consult a healthcare professional. 
  • After incorrect insertion, catheters must be discarded and not re-used. A new catheter should be selected. Used catheters should always be discarded

Instructions for Use:
  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water 
  • Clean the genital area from the front to the back, from the inside to the outside, with soap and water. 
  • Choose the position that is most comfortable. Move pelvis forward as much as possible to get a better view. Use a mirror to find the opening of the urethra
  • Peel open the package. 
  • Lubricate the catheter with water-soluble lubricant.
  • Take the catheter out from the package. 
  • With one hand, spread the labia (the loose tissue on either side of the urethra) apart and lift it gently upwards. The urethra opening should now be visible
    With other hand, slowly push the catheter into urethra until the urine starts to flow. Make sure the funnel end is pointing into a container. 
  • When the urine starts to flow, push the catheter in one or two cm to make sure that it is fully inside the bladder. 
  • To make sure bladder is emptied completely, remove the catheter slowly and stop if more urine starts to flow.
  • When the bladder is empty withdraw the catheter slowly. 
  • Discard catheter after use. 
  • Wash hands.
    NOTE: Healthcare professionals use aseptic technique
