CIC catheter




Clean intermittent cathetering (CIC) is a technique for draining urine from the bladder in regular intervals. It can be used to prevent urinary tract infections and wetting by patients that have difficulty emptying the bladder completely.  When the bladder remains filled with urine for long periods of time, it can provide an ideal setting for rapid bacterial growth.

CIC empties the bladder before bacteria can multiply sufficiently to cause an infection. CIC also prevents wetting by patients with an overflow incontinence, a condition in which urine leaks from the full bladder and dribbles out.  MEDpro CIC Catheters are supplied in sterile, peel-open packages. They are intended for one time use only. The catheters are made of transparent PVC.
