Our extensive catalog features a wide selection of French sizes and lengths tailored to pediatric, female, and male anatomies, sourced from reputable manufacturers.

How many catheters can I get a month?

After meeting the intermittent catheterization coverage criteria and confirming that the patient or caregiver can perform the procedure, Medicare extends coverage for up to 200 catheters per month, along with lubricating jelly. Coverage from other insurance providers may vary. If your needs exceed the allocated amount, kindly contact your physician, and we will collaborate with your insurance provider to ensure you receive the appropriate quantity.

Can I get free samples?

Absolutely! We have the capability to provide you with samples from a variety of manufacturers, ensuring that you can find the catheter that best suits your comfort and needs.

How do I use my catheters?

Please refer to one of our comprehensive guides below, tailored to your specific anatomy. Typically, the catheterization process can be completed in less than a minute, involving lubrication if necessary, gentle insertion, and urine expulsion. As soon as the catheter is inserted to the correct point, urine will begin to flow. Once the flow ceases, carefully remove the catheter and dispose of it in accordance with proper procedures. It's important to note that intermittent catheters are designed for single-use only.

How do I reorder my catheters?

How do I travel with catheters?

Traveling with Catheters: Helpful Tips

  • Stash half of your catheter supply in your carry-on bag to be prepared for any lost luggage situations.
  • It's advisable to carry extra catheters when traveling, particularly if you're journeying abroad; having double the supplies you anticipate needing is a wise move.
  • Consider entrusting spare supplies to trusted family members or friends, along with information about your location, so they can ship additional supplies if necessary.

How do I prevent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)?

Preventing UTIs is paramount for maintaining bladder health, especially when practicing catheterization. Ensuring a sterile technique is crucial. Start by thoroughly washing your hands with antibacterial soap before initiating the procedure. Furthermore, when handling the catheter, be meticulous about touching only the parts that won't come into contact with the anatomy. These precautions go a long way in reducing your risk of contracting a UTI. Additionally, remember to stay well-hydrated to flush out potential pathogens, maintain a regular catheterization schedule, and consult a healthcare professional promptly if you experience any signs of a UTI, such as burning during catheterization, cloudy urine, fever, or abdominal pain.

I am using a sterile technique with my straight or coude catheter and still experiencing urinary tract infections. What can I do?

If you're consistently getting urinary tract infections despite using a sterile technique with your catheter, here are some steps to consider:

  1. Consult your healthcare provider for advice and potential alternatives.
  2. Maintain proper catheter hygiene and handwashing.
  3. Stay well-hydrated and empty your bladder regularly.
  4. Discuss dietary changes with your healthcare provider.
  5. Follow any prescribed treatments or antibiotics as recommended.

Seeking professional guidance is crucial to address this issue effectively.

How much will my catheters cost?

The extent of coverage varies based on your specific insurance plan. Our team of experts will offer a comprehensive breakdown of your benefits and will carefully assess any associated costs during the review process.
