The O’Neil Sterile Field Intermittent Urinary Catheter (ONS) is a single use disposable device used to catheterize the patient without the need for an extensive sterile field. The catheter has been designed with an introducer tip, which is able to bypass the majority of organisms that exist at the opening of the urethra and therefore greatly reduce the risk of urinary tract infections (UTI) due to catheterization.
The ONS has a silicon tip which is inserted into the urethra. The pre-lubricated nelaton catheter is then able to pass through the tip, thus bypassing the organisms that exist at the opening of the urethra. The nelaton catheter is sealed in a polyethylene drainage bag to collect the urine thus providing a closed collection system. Volume markings exist on the drainage bag as a guide to the amount of urine collected. The entire device is packaged individually and sold as a sterile single use device. The device is intended to be used in the hospital or home environment by either medical staff or self administration.
The principles of using intermittent catheterization are based on regular and complete emptying of the bladder to maintain a low bladder pressure and minimal residual urine volumes, consequently securing bladder and renal health. Correctly performed intermittent catheterization is a safe method suitable for long-term use, minimizing the risk of urological complications (e.g. those relating to bladder and kidney dysfunction, UTI, urethral strictures and male infertility) and improving a person’s quality of life.
Intermittent catheterization is the preferred method of catheterization in patients who have bladder dysfunction, specifically neurogenic neurogenic (spinal cord injury, spina bifida and multiple sclerosis) and non-neurogenic bladder disorders (infravesical obstruction due to prostate enlargement, urethral strictures and post-operative urinary retention). Lower urinary tract symptoms of neurogenic bladder include either urinary incontinence or incomplete bladder emptying and urinary retention caused by outlet obstruction, poor detrusor contraction, or compliance.
Patient who have bladder dysfunction, specifically neurogenic neurogenic (spinal cord injury, spina bifida and multiple sclerosis) and non-neurogenic bladder disorders (infravesical obstruction due to prostate enlargement, urethral strictures and post-operative urinary retention).
Safety and Performance Claims Made for Device
- Introducer tip provides a sterile field for the pre-lubricated catheter to bypass the uretha, thereby reducing the risk UTI.
- Pre-lubricated Nelaton catheter is easier to use.
