TYPES OF CATHETERS FOR WOMEN
Catheters to use for management of urinary incontinence in females include:
Straight Female Catheter: Considered the original technology, female length straight intermittent catheters are uncoated and must be manually lubricated prior to insertion. Usually, this is done with individual packets of sterile lubricant, although some prefer using the flip-top tubes of lubricant.
Hydrophilic Female Catheter: Hydrophilic female catheters are similar to straight catheters in many ways, but there’s one key feature that makes hydrophilic catheters stand apart from other types. Female hydrophilic catheters have a coating that is activated by water to become slippery, smooth, and ready to use. This coating acts in place of lubricant, so you don’t have to worry about carrying along a tube or packets of lubricant with you.
Closed System Female Catheter: Closed system female catheters are a convenient option because it is an all-in-one system. The catheter itself is pre-lubricated and sterile inside its self-contained collection bag, which eliminates the need to carry additional lubricant, and many brands also have insertion supplies packaged with it as well, such as sterile gloves, an underpad, and antiseptic wipes. Most closed systems also have a pre-lubricated introducer tip that helps to bypass the majority of bacteria in the first few millimeters of the urethra, which further minimizes the risk of infection.
