What Is An Intermittent Urinary Catheter?
An Intermittent Urinary Catheter is a medical device that is used to empty the bladder. The use of an intermittent catheter is designed for patients that are unable to urinate naturally. Intermittent Catheters typically have a drainage bag to capture urine.

Straight Catheters are part of the intermittent catheterization. Intermittent Catheterization entails the periodic emptying of the bladder with a sterile catheter each time a person caths. This allows catheter users to prevent dangerous UTI’s.
How Intermittent Catheters Work
Usually a catheter is inserted with the help of a trained professional. A member of your healthcare team will insert the sterilized catheter, or tube into the urethra which connects your genitals to your bladder.
A healthcare team member will explain how to use and care for your catheter.
Benefits From Using Intermittent Catheters
