The bladders job is to fill, store and empty out urine throughout the day. But when the bladder has trouble storing urine, emptying urine from the bladder, or both, intermittent catheterization (IC) may be required. IC mimics the bladder's natural rhythm allowing the bladder to fill and empty, thereby providing several advantages and health benefits.

Urine naturally fills the bladder when the walls of the bladder relax. When the bladder becomes full, IC is used to completely empty the bladder at regular intervals throughout the day. This prevents urine remaining in the bladder.

What is a Straight Catheter?

Straight catheters are part of intermittent catheterization, the periodic emptying of the bladder with a sterile catheter each time a person caths.

Straight Catheters are gentle, with smooth, fire-polished eyelets to prevent urethral trauma that can cause the formation of scar tissue.

These catheters are designed for users with chronic bladder problems who are able to perform the catheterization themselves. Additionally, they’re generally used for a quick “in-n-out,” which also means they can only be used one time.

What are urinary catheters?

Urinary catheters are made for people who cannot empty their bladder – either for a short period of time or permanently.

A dysfunctional bladder can lead to urine build up, which can cause pressure in the kidneys, ultimately, damaging them. A Urinary catheter can solve this problem by conveniently emptying the bladder.

A urinary catheter is a tube used to collect urine from the bladder. It’s hollow, partially flexible, and comes in many types, sizes and materials such as rubber, plastic, and silicone.

Urinary catheters have been around for a long time

Using catheters for the treatment and relief of urinary disorders was invented many years ago. Ancient text actually describes how Egyptians, Romans, Hindus, and Greeks used tubes of wood and metal as catheters.

However, the first flexible silver coil catheter was developed in 1752 by Benjamin Franklin, one of America’s Founding Fathers. Franklin created the catheter to help his brother, who suffered from bladder stones .

Nowadays, millions of people all over the world have been enabled to manage clean intermittent catheterization themselves, gaining control, freedom, and a higher quality of life.
