Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1:How do you use a hydrophilic intermittent catheter?

A1:Using a hydrophilic intermittent catheter involves several steps. First, wash your hands thoroughly. Prepare the catheter by activating the hydrophilic coating, usually by soaking it in water or breaking a water sachet included with the catheter. Then, gently insert the lubricated catheter into the urethra until it reaches the bladder and urine begins to flow. Once the bladder is empty, slowly withdraw the catheter. It's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and any guidance provided by healthcare professionals.

Q2:What are the benefits of a hydrophilic catheter?

A2:Hydrophilic catheters offer several benefits: they reduce friction during insertion and removal, minimizing discomfort and the risk of urethral trauma. The smooth, lubricated surface helps prevent urinary tract infections. These catheters are also convenient, as they eliminate the need for separate lubrication. Additionally, they are often preferred for their ease of use, making the self-catheterization process more manageable for patients with limited dexterity.

Q3:Can hydrophilic catheters be reused?

A3:Hydrophilic catheters are designed for single use and should not be reused. Reusing a catheter increases the risk of infection, including urinary tract infections, and can compromise the effectiveness of the hydrophilic coating. Each use requires a new, sterile catheter to maintain hygiene and safety standards. It's crucial to follow the guidelines provided by healthcare professionals and manufacturers regarding the proper use and disposal of these catheters.

Q4:Can the CathVantage™ catheter be used by both men and women?

A4:The CathVantage™ catheter is suitable for use by both men and women. It's available in different sizes to accommodate various anatomical needs, ensuring a comfortable fit for all users.
