Catheter lubricant is an important addition to users of intermittent catheters and pediatric catheters. Sometimes called “catheter lube” or “catheter jelly”, the purpose of catheter lubricant is to reduce discomfort and pain on catheter insertion, as the urethra is prone to trauma on the insertion of the catheter. Most catheter lubes contain water soluble lubricants and gels that are also sterile, further reducing the risk of a urinary tract infection (UTI).
At Home Medical features a variety of catheter lubricants with features such as caps that screw on, caps that flip open, or catheter lubricant that comes in disposable jelly lubricants packets.
