MTG Instant Cath Deluxe
This is a new catheter by Medical Technologies of Georgia, Inc., a family-owned, medical manufacturing company based in Georgia. MTG is owned and operated by the same people who pioneered and marketed closed system intermittent catheters under the company name MMG Healthcare. These products became famous as “the” intermittent catheters proven to reduce recurrent urinary tract infections for people who use IC as their primary method of bladder control.
Since Medical Technologies of Georgia, Inc. (MTG) is wholly devoted to improving the quality of life for those who use intermittent catheterization, MTG has significantly improved the former catheter to make it easier to use. Thus the production of the MTG Instant Cath™ Deluxe vinyl catheter came to be. The production of this product, from assembly, packaging and sterilization, is done entirely within the United States.
The soft, silicone, introducer tip of the MTG Instant Cath™ Deluxe, Closed System Intermittent Catheter is designed to shield the catheter from contact with bacteria located within the first 1.5cm (about ½”) of the distal urethra. Most urethral bacteria are located in the distal urethra, so if the catheter is passed beyond this region without coming in contact with these potential pathogens, they will not be pushed further into the urethra or to the bladder. To greatly enhance ease of use, each MTG Instant Cath™ Deluxe catheter includes the added benefit of the patented EZ-Advancer™ valve. This means that as you pass the catheter to the bladder, the catheter does not retract into the bag, providing effortless catheterization. There’s no need to clamp down to stabilize, or to ever straighten the bag. Simply, advance the catheter – instantly!
When voiding is complete, and the catheter has been removed from the body, here’s a tip to easily empty the bag:
With one hand, grasp the firm plastic tube, at the top of the bag, and hold the bag upright, so the urine collects at the bottom of the bag.
With your other hand, use the gauze pad provided, or a tissue, and hold the tip-eye holes end of the catheter. The gauze or tissue should be used to cover the eye holes.
While continuing to hold the bag with one hand, extend the catheter to the top of the bag. When the flared end of the catheter reaches the firm plastic tube it will catch.
Now, give a slight tug on the catheter and the tube, EZ-Advancer™ valve and introducer tip will be removed from the bag and you can pour the urine into the toilet.
