hi-slip Catheters

hi-slip Hydrophilic Catheters (Intermittent)

Why you should choose hi-slip:

  • Clinical studies show that hydrophilic catheters can reduce the risk of urinary tract infections and urethral damage.
  • Hydrophilic catheters have a specially coated surface that binds water, making the catheters extremely slippery (hi-slip) when water is added.  No lubricating gel is needed.
  • Hydrophilic catheter usage is associated with reduced numbers of UTI's as compared with standard non-hydrophilic catheters.

What is Clean Intermittent Catheterisation (CIC):

CIC is the draining of the bladder of urine at regular intervals using a catheter in order:

  • To prevent leaking of urine
  • To prevent repeated bladder and kidney infections 
  • To prevent reflux (backflow) of urine from the bladder to the kidneys

For patients with urinary retention, CIC is the best solution.

The frequency of CIC varies. Your Doctor, Nurse or a Flaxx Medical Nurse Specialist will determine the frequency of catheterisation suitable for you.
