Intermittent catheters are recommended for short-term use when urological disorders prevent the bladder from emptying properly or completely. Proper use of an intermittent catheter will result in a completely emptied bladder, lower bladder pressure, and a reduced risk of complications and urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Male catheters, which can also be called condom catheters, work similarly to traditional catheters. They are designed for those with urological disorders but tend to be more convenient to use. A male catheter fits directly over the penis and is designed similar to a condom. This type of catheter is available in five separate sizes for the perfect fit.
Intermittent self-catheterization can help individuals who suffer from urological issues such as incontinence or urinary retention to safely control their urinary symptoms. By regularly emptying their bladders and relieving excess bladder pressure they are able to reduce their risk of urinary tract infections, kidney damage, and bladder distention.
