We understand that women have specific concerns when it comes to using catheters. That’s why 180 Medical provides helpful, step-by-step information on how to use closed system catheters, hydrophilic catheters, and intermittent straight catheters.

Please click on the type of catheter below that you want to learn how to use.

Pick one of the following:
Closed system catheters are self-contained, pre-lubricated catheters housed within their own sterile collection bags.
Hydrophilic catheters stay optimally hydrated to promote excellent gliding properties during catheterization.
Straight catheters are uncoated catheters, which means you must manually add lubrication before insertion.

Please note that this is intended to provide a general understanding of self-catheterization. It should not be used in place of a visit, call, or consultation with a physician or other healthcare provider.
