Intermittent Catheters: single-use catheters that are meant to be used each time you urinate throughout the day.
External Catheters: rubber sheaths that can be placed over the penis to drain urine. They are also known as “condom caths.” Many people who are using a catheter for the first time will opt for an External Catheter.
Indwelling Catheters: often called “foley” catheters, these remain in the body for extended periods of time. Once the catheter is inserted and reaches your bladder, a balloon near the tip inflates, anchoring the catheter inside. Many people will opt to use an indwelling catheter at night.
No, urinary incontinence, a loss of control of one’s bladder that can lead to unexpected or unintended urination, can often be addressed without the need for catheter use. While it is typically recommended to speak to a healthcare provider about your specific circumstances before coming to a decision regarding treatment, lifestyle modifications alone can often dramatically improve discomfort many feel due to urinary incontinence. These modifications include planning ahead when consuming large volumes of fluids, scheduling bathroom breaks, or performing kegels to strengthen your pelvic muscles.
Coated vs. uncoated: Hydrophilic catheters have a hydrophilic coating over the catheter material that helps the catheter not to stick to the lining of the urethra, making them more comfortable to insert and pull out.
Lubrication: Some catheters will come with a lubricant that has been pre-applied that allows the catheter to be inserted more easily and comfortably. If a catheter is not coated or pre-lubricated, you will need to apply lubrication prior to inserting it.
Material: The stiffer the catheter material is, the easier it is to push in. While more stiffness makes a catheter easier to insert, it can also rougher on the lining of the urethra. Latex and Rubber are very flexible, latex coated in silicone is a bit stiffer, and silicone is the stiffest.Size: Catheters come in various sizes, usually referred to as “French sizes.” Your doctor will help you find the correct size for your needs. If your catheter is too big, it will feel uncomfortable; if it is too small, you will experience leakage.
Coudé vs. Straight Tip: Most catheters have straight tips, but coudé catheters have an angled or curved tip that helps with insertion for people who have an enlarged prostate or scar tissue.
Closed System: Closed system catheters are made for increased sterility. They contain a pre-lubricated straight catheter attached to a urine collection bag, and the catheter comes in a sheath that allows the user to empty the bladder into a collection bag without directly touching the catheter, helping to reduce infection. This catheter is ideal for those with limited mobility or with problems with dexterity. Some people use this type of catheter when they are traveling or do not have direct access to a toilet.
Depending on your lifestyle and needs, you may also want to consider getting some of the following accessories.
Drainage bags: smaller "leg" bags or larger "night" bags that collect urine. These are often used with indwelling or foley catheters.
Extension tubing: extends the length of tubing between the catheter and the bag, allowing for more freedom of movement without uncomfortable pulling.
Leg bag straps: help to keep leg bags in place if you have a more active lifestyle.
No, you can pay without insurance although it is much more expensive. We suggest people speak with their primary care doctor before considering catheter use.
