Interested in keeping up with the latest catheter and ostomy products available on the market? 180 Medical is always ready to share the scoop on the newest supplies with you, and today, we’d like to introduce you to ConvaTec’s new line of GentleCath™ Pro Closed-System Intermittent Catheters.
What are the features of the GentleCath™ Pro?
The GentleCath™ Pro Closed-System was designed to minimize risk of infection and allow easier and more sterile catheterization. The system has an introducer tip as well as an all-in-one collection bag, which allows for “no touch” catheterization in a more portable system that is convenient for use both at home or away from home and traveling. Because you only touch the system’s outer collection bag, not the catheter tube itself, this helps to reduce the risk of infection that can sometimes occur when bacteria from hands transfers to the catheter.
Breakdown of the main features:
- Collection bag which allows you to measure and see the amount of urine drained
- Portable system allows for easy catheterization away from home or when a restroom is not easily accessible
- Pre-lubricated introducer tip, which allows the catheter itself to bypass the first few millimeters of the urethra, where bacteria is most highly concentrated
- Also includes an underpad, gloves, non-staining antiseptic pad, and additional lubricating jelly
