The Intermittent Catheter by Mentor is a straight tip catheter meant designed for males to administer efficient self-catheterization. It is ideal for patients needing artificial bladder drainage, patients who are unable to promote natural urine flow or even those with a significant amount of residual urine leakage after a natural urination.
The Mentor Intermittent Straight Tip Catheter is pre-lubricated with microbeads of a hydrogel which render the surface of the catheter incredibly smooth. This helps reduce friction significantly and eliminate discomfort when inserting the catheter for use. The smooth silicone surface of the catheter adds to this comfort and reduction of friction which makes it suitable even for incredibly sensitive patients. These catheters are more firm than standard rubber catheters and hence allow easier insertion without causing pain. The eyelets of these catheters are fire-polished for enhanced smoothness and also contribute to reducing friction during insertion. These polished eyelets ensure no strain is exerted to the urethral tissue or the bladder tissue thereby reducing patient trauma.
Each Self Cath Straight Tip Catheter is sterilized and packed individually to maintain its sterility. These sixteen inch long catheters are made of medical grade PVC and are hence latex-free. They are available in a variety of sizes to suit the individual needs of the users. They are designed for a single use only on male adult or pediatric patients.
