Antibacterial intermittent catheters are urinary catheters that are sterile and coated with an antibacterial coating called Nitrofurazone. It is meant to help prevent urinary tract infections and other irritations. These sterile catheters are straight tipped with eyelets to drain fluid away. Antibacterial intermittent catheters can be used by both men and women.
Self-Lubricated Catheters are pre lubricated catheters that have a hyrdophilic coating for easy insertion. They are individually packaged in sterile water or saline solution, so no additional lubricant is needed. SpeediCaths are used for male urinary catheterization or female urinary catheterization and are compact enough to fit in a purse or pocket.
