Catheter kits and trays are sets of tools used to successfully perform urinary intermittent catheterization. They typically come with an intermittent catheter, collection bag, gloves, and antiseptic wipes. This allows for the most safe and sanitary catheter insertion process.
A Foley Catheter Tray makes urinary catheter insertion easy because all of your needed supplies are in one package. They can be purchased with a catheter for convenience purposes or without a catheter to allow you to choose the best type for you. A catheter tray includes gloves, swab sticks, underpad, and pre-filled syringes.
If you are looking to buy a catheter separately from a catheter tray, Express Medical Supply carries several brands of Foley Catheters. They are indwelling urinary catheters that are long, flexible tubes that are inserted through the urethra and into the bladder for easy urinary draining. Foley catheters contain silver, which is helpful in preventing urinary tract infections.
Hydrophilic Catheters are also known as self-lubricated catheters because there is no need for additional lube. They are the preferred method for people who experience pain, pressure, or discomfort while inserting a catheter. If you have limited dexterity, a coude catheter could be helpful.
When it comes to hydrophilic catheters, one popular brand is Cure Catheters. This company manufactures intermittent catheters with coude tip and straight tip, as well as catheter insertion kits. They have a selection of compact and latex-free catheters for men and women to suit many needs.
