This catheter is coated with a hydrophilic polymer that reacts with water to create a smooth, slippery coating on the surface of the catheter.

How To Use Hydrophilic Urinary Catheter?

  • Before you begin, gather the following items: catheter, water-based lubricant, washcloth or antiseptic wipe and a receptacle to void into if a toilet is not available.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and then choose the position that is most comfortable for you. Move your pelvis forward as much as possible to get a better view.
  • You may want to use a hand mirror at first so you can see everything and get an idea of insertion placement.
  • 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.
  • Break the sterile water sachet Then let the water run down into the package.
  • To activate the hydrophilic coating, make sure the catheter is soaked in water for at least 15 seconds.
  • Open the package by peeling the tabs on the connector side.
  • 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 the other hand, slowly push the catheter into the 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 a little (one or two cms/half an inch) to make sure that it is fully inside the bladder.
  • To make sure the bladder is emptied completely, remove the catheter slowly and stop if more urine starts to flow.
