Barry Fact

“Did you know that for more than 3500 years urinary catheters have been used?”

Lower you risk of developing urinary tract infections, otherwise known as UTIs.

Make sure you learn how to insert your catheters correctly. It can take time to learn, but make sure you review the correct method with your doctor or nurse. Ask questions if you are having difficulty. Advocate for yourself and make sure you learn properly.

Using insertion kits can help. Insertion kits include products that help keep a clean environment.

If you suspect you maybe developing a UTI, reach out to your physician’s office right away.

Tips on Using Your Catheters

  1. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds thoroughly using warm water and antibacterial soap before and after inserting your catheter.
  2. Make sure you stay hydrated! Unless your physician recommends otherwise, drink plenty of fluids during the day. This promotes good bladder and kidney function.
  3. Avoid caffeine if possible. If you must drink your coffee, who doesn’t? Try to limit yourself to two cups a day.
  4. Take a deep breath and relax before inserting your catheter.
