When would you use a straight catheter?
A straight catheter is a device that is inserted into the urethra to drain urine from the bladder. Men and women who can use a catheter themselves, and who are able, may be prescribed a straight catheter. Straight catheters are used by those who cannot use a flexible catheter due to medical conditions such as spinal injuries or prostate obstructions.
How often do you change a straight catheter?
The catheter needs to be removed and replaced every 3 months. This is typically done under local anesthesia in the surgeon’s office with a local anesthetic. The procedure takes about 10 minutes to perform, then the patient leaves the office to recover after they are discharged from care. The procedure can also be performed at home if preferred by the patient.
Why would you use a straight catheter?
A straight catheter can be used when there is difficulty inserting a curved catheter. It's often easier to use the straight catheter because it does not require the person to push on their stomach during insertion, which can cause discomfort. Straight catheters are available in different shapes and sizes to accommodate different needs.
Many patients that have been diagnosed with a urinary tract infection or other urinary problems have been prescribed catheter insertion into their bladder in order to relieve the pressure in their bladder and reduce any unwanted leakage. When a male patient is in need of a catheter, the Coloplast Catheters Male Straight Catheter is an excellent choice among these products.
