The O’Neil Sterile Field Intermittent Urinary Catheter is a single use device suitable for catheterisation without the need for an extensive sterile field.
It is clinically proven in reducing urinary tract infections (UTIs) due to clever design.
The catheter has an introducer tip which is inserted into the urethra, through which the pre-lubricated nelaton catheter is then passed. This bypasses the organisms present at the opening of the urethra, greatly reducing the risk of UTIs due to catheterisation.
The nelaton catheter is sealed in a polyethylene drainage bag with volume markings to collect the urine. The device is packaged individually and sold as a sterile single use device, intended for hospital or home use.
The principles of intermittent catheterisation are based on regular and complete emptying of the bladder to maintain a low bladder pressure and minimal residual urine volumes. This helps to secure bladder and renal health. Correctly performed intermittent catheterisation is a safe method suitable for long-term use, minimising the risk of urological complications.
Intermittent catheterisation is the preferred method of catheterisation in patients who have bladder dysfunction, specifically 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).
