External catheters at HPFY

External catheters, also known as condom catheters, are urinary sheaths designed to treat short-term male incontinence. It is shaped like a condom that easily rolls over a man’s penis and is connected via tubing to a bag to collect the urine. At HPFY, we carry a whole variety of external catheters for males. Our range includes all-silicone self-adhering condom catheters, condom catheters with straps, external catheters with short sheath lengths, external male catheters with a watertight adhesive seal, reusable condom catheters, and much more. You can choose from latex and non-latex types and base your selection on properties like hypoallergenic and non-sterile

How do Male External Catheters Work?

  1. An external catheter is slipped onto a male user’s penis and secured using medical adhesive or an inflatable retention ring. Urine from the bladder flows out through the urethra, sheath, and into the attached leg urinary bag or bedside urinary bag.
  2. External condom catheter systems are non-invasive and hence easy to use. Men prefer them with incontinence over the intermittent catheter or indwelling catheter. Since the catheter is not inserted, there are fewer chances of urinary tract infections and reduced trauma.
  3. Condom cath for men is available in several types and sizes. Generally, the usage period is 12-48 hours, and most of these are disposable urinary sheaths. For easy inspection of skin to monitor skin health, a pop-on male catheter is useful with its clear sheath. An example is the Rochester Medical Pop-On male catheter.
  4. The male incontinence sheath is usually connected to a urine bag strapped to the leg or an overnight urine bag to be hung by the bedside. But the Bioderm Liberty 3.0 external catheter has an integral collection chamber that can hold up to 8 fl. oz.
  5. Condom catheters may be self-adhering, such as UltraFlex Male External Catheter. They have an adhesive on the inner ring, while others have adhesive tapes to hold the catheter in place. An inflatable retention ring and foam straps are other options to secure the catheter. The Rochester wide band condom catheter has a 3-inch wide adhesive area that is 70% wider than traditional self-adhering catheters

How do you choose a Condom Catheter?

  • Size: Condom catheter sizing is important because if too small, then applying the catheter will be difficult and can cause irritation, pain, and injury. If too big, then there is a risk of leakage and staying securely in place. Check a sizing guide to determine which device will fit you right. Till you get the size right, keep a lookout for any occurrence of ischemia or restricted blood flow and penile obstruction, which may be the result of too tight a sheath. Any skin irritation can be avoided by using a skin barrier product over the skin before rolling on the condom catheter.
  • Sensitivity: If you have a latex allergy, opt for silicone catheters or latex-free sheath condoms, which are also self-adhering. Conveen Optima is made of PSX silicone material. It has an anti-leakage system of a push ring with sure grip ribs, anti-kink bellow to ensure free flow and balanced adhesive. The Rochester UltraFlex is also a great option that offers a built-in adhesive band in a length and placement typical of traditional male external catheters. Its size and clear, breathable silicone design work well for a wide range of patients.
  • Our atex condom catheter range is huge from manufacturers like Coloplast, Hollister, Rush, Urocare, Bard, and Amsino. The Hollister extended wear latex external catheter has double convolutions to prevent kinking and twisting and an inner flap to minimize urine backflow. The Freedom Clear Advantage male external catheter from Coloplast has aloe in the adhesive to protect the skin and a kink-resistant nozzle to ensure free flow at all times.
