Advantages of the Modern Condom Catheter

Medical Supplies for a Healthy Lifestyle

What are the advantages of the modern condom catheter?  This item is used for bladder drainage much in the same way a traditional catheter is used.  However, instead of an insertion into the urethra, this catheter simply slips on like a condom.  It is held in place by an adhesive material.  In addition to adhesive tape, you can also opt for a Velcro attachment.  The piece itself, like a condom, is made from latex.

Other parts of the complete condom catheter system include the urine bag, tubing, a sheath holding material, as well as a sterilization supplies, such as soap, towels and a waterproof pad.  It is commonly recommended that you (or the patient you are caring for) shave off the pubic hair near the penis.  When this is done, it is less likely that it will be caught in the attachment. 

When it’s time to attach the condom piece, position the genitalia away from your body at an angle of approximately 90 degrees.  Roll the piece over, in a gentle way, leaving about two inches of the catheter.  The sheath should wrap around at the base.  Be careful that the system is not too tight or is causing any discomfort.  Next, connect the piece of the tube of the urine bag.  Make sure it is not twisted, nor too tightly wound (otherwise, it could be pulled out of place if you walk).  The condom catheter can be worn at night, though in this case it is best to put on a bed sheet.  In general, it is best to position your body (in the day and at night) so that urine always goes downwards.  While sleeping, this may require positioning it below the bed or even under the mattress. 

If you want to learn more about this condition and the solutions you can look into, visit health resources online or, even better, visit a doctor and get a complete physical examination.  You can also start looking around for a medical supply store online.  The advantage of shopping here is that you can receive discreet shipping as well as home delivery.  All in all, modern technology has allowed people to embrace freedom and carry on their lives normally, despite medical obstacles.  Remember that this condition is a symptom, one indicative of something else—and in most cases, it is a problem that can be cured. 

The condom catheter may be just what you need to take your normal life back!
