What is a straight catheter?

A straight catheter is a hollow tube that is inserted into the urethra or a stoma in order to drain the bladder.

Straight intermittent catheters are uncoated, which means they must be lubricated before using them. 180 Medical can provide insurance-covered sterile lubricating jelly with your order.
