What is Antibacterial Catheter?

Antibacterial catheters are designed to protect catheter users from urinary tract infections. They come coated with an antibacterial coating like nitrofurazone or silver. These antibacterial agents help curbing a variety of pathogens associated with urinary tract infections.

Benefits of Antibacterial Catheters

How do Antibacterial Catheters help reduce the risk of CAUTI?

Patients using urinary catheters are at an increased risk of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). Although extreme care is taken to avoid contamination and subsequent infections, catheters are still susceptible to the accumulation of microbes. Furthermore, the body’s natural ability to clean the urinary tract of microorganisms is decreased when a urinary catheter is in place. This increases the risk of microorganisms entering the bladder

through the external or internal surfaces of the catheter. Bacteria can colonize into biofilms and attach to the catheter surface and may cause catheter blockage. Biofilms develop resistance to antibiotics, so reducing biofilm formation is critical in reducing CAUTI. Antibacterial agents like silver alloys and nitrofurazone reduce biofilm formations and colonization in the urinary tract, thus reducing the chances of infection.

Types of Antibacterial Catheters at HPFY

Silver Coated Foley Catheter

Silver is known for its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and has been used in healthcare for centuries. Silver-coated Foley catheters are used to protect against urinary tract infections. The silver coating on the catheter effectively kills bacteria in the urethra. Bard Lubri-Sil Two-Way I.C. Infection Control Foley Catheter incorporates an advanced formulation consisting of bacti-guard silver alloy coating and hydrogel, which help reduce adhesion of the bacteria that causes CAUTIs.

Nitrofurazone-impregnated intermittent catheter

Nitrofurazone is an antibacterial agent and has proven effective against various pathogens known to cause bladder infections. Rochester Antibacterial Hydro Personal Male Intermittent Catheter has nitrofurazone that provides urinary antiseptic to the intermittent catheter boundary during catheterization.
