What to buy with WideBand Male External Catheter


How to Use Rochester WideBand Male External Catheter?

  • Sizing:
     Select the proper size by using the attached sizing guide. Place the sizing guide across the shaft of your penis to find the corresponding size. For comfort and effectiveness, choose the size closest to your penis width
  • Gather Your Supplies:
     You will need a catheter, a collection bag with a connecting tube, non-pointed manicure scissors, soap (do not use soaps that leave a cream or greasy residue on the skin), a washcloth, and a towel
  • Trim Pubic Hair:
     Always wash your hands before beginning. Trim hairs on the shaft and base of your penis and any other pubic hair that might interfere with the adhesive on the catheter
  • Cleanse Your Penis:
     In order for the catheter adhesive to perform properly, the skin must be clean and very dry. Wash your penis with mild soap (does not contain artificial fragrance) and warm water. Be sure to allow the area to dry completely before proceeding
  • Application and Positioning:
     Place the rolled self-adhering catheter over the penile tip. Slowly and carefully unroll the catheter, leaving just enough space in the funnel end, so the tip of your penis does not rub against the inside of the funnel. If uncircumcised, be sure to leave the foreskin in place over the head of the penis
  • Squeeze to Set:
     Smooth out any wrinkles in the catheter. Gently squeeze the catheter to seal it to the skin properly. Wear time may be significantly reduced if the adhesive is not properly sealed. Note: Too many wrinkles in the catheter may indicate that an inappropriate size has been selected. A smaller catheter may be more effective
  • Connect to Drainage Device:
     Strap the drainage device to your thigh or calf, depending on your activities and your clothing. Connect one end of the tubing to the catheter and cut the tubing to a comfortable length. Connect the cut end to the leg bag. Always empty your leg bag before it becomes uncomfortably full and pulls on the catheter
  • Wear Time:
     Wear time will vary from user to user. For proper hygiene, it is recommended that a male external catheter be changed every 24 hours
  • Remove the Connections:
     Clamp the connecting tube closed before removing the leg bag. Release the leg straps and disconnect the tubing at the top of the bag
  • Remove the Catheter:
     Gently roll the external catheter forward and off the penis. To help loosen the adhesive before removal, apply a warm wet compress (such as a wet washcloth) around the catheter
