What are Hydrophilic Compact Urinary Catheters?

Compact Catheters, Hydrophilic Intermittent Catheters What is a urinary catheter? A urinary catheter is a tube that is inserted into the urethra until it reaches the bladder to drain and/or collect urine. What is an intermittent catheter? An intermittent catheter is a urinary catheter that is inserted into the urethra and then once the bladder is drained it is immediately removed from the body and discarded. Are all intermittent catheters the same? No, there are many differences between intermittent catheters. The materials they are made of vary. Intermittent catheters can be latex, silicone, or red rubber. Intermittent catheters can come with a straight tip which is considered standard or they can be made with a bent tip which is called a "coude tip". The coude tip helps to go around obstructions such as an enlarged prostate. Intermittent catheters can also be made pre-lubricated which is called, hydrophillic.

3M Nexcare - Needed in Your First Aid Kit

3M Nexcare First Aid First Aid kits are needed in every home and business. It is a simple thing to buy a pre-built first aid kit and call it a day. The first aid kits that are sold as a package are great for most situations. I think it is always nice to add a few items to them that fit you and your situation specifically. For instance, my son won't leave bandages alone so whenever possible I prefer to use the liquid bandage by 3M. It protects the cut or scrape allowing it to heal but my son can't peel it off. 3M Nexcare doesn't seem to come standard in a lot of first aid kits and that is a shame. Nexcare makes great products that are perfect for work and home. I am going to highlight some of the ones that I use often and have become standard in our personal first aid kits.
