How To Use Hydrophilic Urinary Catheter?

  • Before you begin, gather the following items: catheter, water based lubricant, washcloth or antiseptic wipe and a receptacle to void into if a toilet is not available.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and then choose the position that is most comfortable for you.
  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Withdraw the foreskin and wash the penis with water.
  • Break the sterile water sachet Then let the water run down into the package.
  • To activate the hydrophilic coating, make sure the catheter is soaked in water for at least 15 seconds. Open the package by peeling the tabs on the connector side.
  • Hold your penis upward towards your stomach. This will make it easier to guide the catheter into your bladder.
  • Do not squeeze your penis too hard as this can block the opening of the urethra.
  • Using the no touch blue handling strip, slide the catheter slowly and smoothly into the opening of your urethra and into your bladder until the urine starts to flow.
  • Make sure the funnel end is pointing into a container.
  • When the urine starts to flow, push the catheter in a little (one or two cms/half an inch) to make sure that it is fully inside the bladder.
  • To make sure the bladder is emptied completely, remove the catheter slowly and stop if more urine starts to flow. When the bladder is empty withdraw the catheter slowly.
  • Discard the catheter after use. Wash your hands.
