What is a closed system catheter? Closed system catheters are pre-lubricated and housed inside their own urine collection bags to facilitate no-touch catheterization.
This not only helps prevent UTIs, but it’s also convenient for frequent travelers and folks who use wheelchairs.
Closed system catheters come in a wide variety of styles and brands. Many come with insertion supplies included, such as gloves, an underpad, and antiseptic swabs or wipes. Some brands even include a convenient bag for discreet disposal.
