Closed system catheters are excellent for people on the move or just looking for general ease-of-use in their intermittent catheters. However, it’s important to know that a “closed system” catheter does not include the self-insertion medical catheter supplies needed for a sterile insertion. The good news is: We’ve got you covered with our extensive inventory of self-catheterization supplies.
Closed System Catheters with Insertion Supplies
What Self-Insertion Medical Catheter Supplies Do I Need?
The self-insertion medical catheter supplies for a closed system intermittent catheter are relatively simple, and if you have inserted a catheter yourself at home before, you likely have these items stocked up. If not, we have plenty to choose from in our store above!
The basics of the self-insertion medical catheter supplies include:
- Gloves – to maintain a sterilized barrier between the hands and the catheter equipment.
- Underpads – to provide a clean place to set your self-insertion medical catheter supplies down.
- BZK Antiseptic Towelettes or “BZK wipes” – to cleanse and sterilize the hands and areas of insertion.
- Providone-Iodine Swabsticks / Wipes – to further sterilize the insertion area.
- Additional Lubrication – to provide extra lubrication if necessary.
While some of the above items aren’t explicitly necessary and self-catheterization is possible without them, the risk for contamination and a urinary tract or other infection is far greater without this protective equipment.
On the other hand, say you stocked up on protective gloves a while back and have more than you could likely use. In this case, we have modified kits available without gloves, additional lubrication jelly, or other self-insertion catheter supplies, so you can get what you need without being wasteful.
