Questions: What is the source of the water? sterile, tap water ?? 2 Answers
Question By: bob on Sep 11 2027 7:10 PM
I like using Modudose Unit Dose Saline 15ml, especially for when I'm away from home. They're easy to carry and a lot cleaner than tap water.

I use sterile water to lubricate this catheter. The reason is because I have had frequent bladder infections, as well as a kidney infection within the past 15 months. I try to keep the exposure to bacteria during catheterization to a minimum. In an emergency situation, I would use tap water and cross my fingers/pray! If you have access to sterile water, that would be my recommendation, just based on what I have experienced.

Questions: Is the straight tip rigid or does it soften and bend when warm? If it does, can you recommend one that does not? 2 Answers

I've tried several of the Hydrophilic caths, and I understand how you feel about these. The best ones I've found are: Coloplast Self-Cath Plus Straight Hydrophilic Intermittent Catheter. They are more flexible, but not so bendy that they're difficult to insert, or fold over. Give them a try. I think you'll really like them.

It is straight tip, but it is not very flexible. I don't know if you have used any other clear, non-latex catheters before, but it is kind of like a straw. The main difference is the lubrication.
