    Hollister Advance Plus Straight Tipped Catheter FAQ's

    Q: Is the gel totally water soluble?
    A:
    Yes.

    Q: Does the gel have any ingredients that could cause allergic reactions?
    A:
    Hollister Incorporated has undertaken both biocompatibility and latex testing in an effort to reduce any potential risk of an allergic reaction; however, even this extent of testing cannot completely eliminate all possible reactions.

    Q: What is the purpose of the gel reservoir?
    A:
    People have different needs with regard to the amount of gel they need. With the gel reservoir, the users have the possibility to individually regulate the amount of gel.

    Q: Does the catheter leave gel in the urethra?
    A:
    Some gel can remain in the urethra, although the amount of gel that could remain is insignificant. The gel has been tested for use both on the skin and mucosal tissue and approved for use with no adverse effects identified from testing.

    Q: How much gel is in the gel reservoir? Is it enough for a catheterization?
    A:
    The French 6-8 size reservoirs hold 2.3 grams of gel while the French size 10-18 reservoirs hold 4.0 grams. All reservoirs have been tested and have been shown to coat the catheters adequately. The French 6-8 size does not contain as much gel as the other sizes due to the smaller catheter surface area. The concept of the gel reservoir is to coat the catheter fully vs. other means of applying lubrication. This process significantly reduces the amount of gel required to ensure the catheter is coated and is easier for the user, as the gel is applied automatically and reduces the risk of spilling.

    Q: Do Advance Plus intermittent catheters contain phthalates?
    A:
    No DEHP or any other phthalates are used in the manufacturing of the catheter tubing.

    Q: Do the components leave any spots on clothes?
    A:
    The gel will stain clothing if left untreated. To remove a gel stain, dab or rub with a wet cloth or wash as per instructions on the clothing.

    Q: What are the advantages of the protective tip?
    A:
    The protective tip helps to reduce the introduction of bacteria into the urinary system by bypassing the first 15 mm of the distal urethra.

    Q: What material is used to make the Advance Plus intermittent catheters?
    A:
    The catheter tubing is made from PVC — polyvinyl chloride.
