Components of Closed System Intermittent Catheter

There will be some variance between the brands, but the majority of closed system catheter kits contain some basic components described below:

  • Pre-Lubricated Catheter: Provides a touch-free and smooth insertion into the bladder for draining urine.

  • Introducer Tip: Helps in bypassing the first few millimeters of urethra where maximum concentration of bacteria is found.

  • Catheter Cap: Covers and protects the introducer tip until you are ready for catheter use.

  • Measured Urine Bag: Used to hold and measure urine output.

  • Additional Features: Many closed urinary catheter systems also include povidone-iodine or BZK wipes for disinfecting hands and the area of insertion, lubricating jelly for smooth catheter insertion, gloves for covering hands and reducing the risk of infection, and an underpad for protection from residual liquid.
