Catheters come in a variety of sizes and they are used differently. All of them are used to manage urinal incontinence for males and females. They are typically available in lengths from 8 Fr to 26 Fr, or 2.7 mm to 8.7 mm. Here is a look at the different types of catheters you are bound to find in the market.
This is a common type of catheter that’s disposable which means they should only be used once. This is the type of catheter that’s recommended for people who frequently have urinary incontinence.
They are placed inside the body through the urethra so that they can help drain the bladder fully. Before, the intermittent catheters used to have small bend at the tip. However, the coude catheter comes with Coude or straight tips.
These types of catheters are used outside the body, just as the name suggests. For men, this catheter works in the same way as a condom and worn in the same way. A condom catheter is easy to place and easy to remove. The male catheter is only for men.
However, for women, the female catheter is like a pouch. You will only have to replace what comes into contact with the body. This makes it an economical solution to your problem.
Patients will also need a urine bag for use with any of our catheters. The catheter bag is disposable and gets delivered every month with your shipment of catheter supplies.
These catheters are also referred to as the Foley catheters. They are different from the intermittent and external. They are not used for a short time like the other catheters. Instead, and indwelling catheter is positioned in place to stay for long and it takes a qualified medical practitioner to insert them. A foley bag will need to be used with the foley cat.
The suprapubic catheter is the other type of indwelling catheter which is connected to the bladder through the abdomen. The insertion of this catheter is normally done during a surgical process.
All of the above types of catheters are used to clear your bladder and keep your urinary system clear from infections. Before you use any, make sure you consult the doctor for advice.
