Condom Catheter

A condom catheter, also known as an external catheter or male external urinary catheter, is used to manage urinary incontinence in men. It is a sheath-like device that fits over the penis and collects urine into a bag or drainage system without inserting it into the urethra, as with traditional internal catheters. It is designed to treat short-term male incontinence. Shaped like a condom that easily rolls over the penis, it is typically made of soft, flexible materials, such as latex or silicone, and is designed to be comfortable and discreet. Depending on the individual's needs, they are attached to a drainage bag that collects urine and can be worn throughout the day or night. External male catheters are typically recommended for men with urinary incontinence due to various conditions, such as prostate problems, neurological disorders, or other medical conditions affecting urinary function.

At HPFY, we carry a variety of external catheters for men. In addition, you can choose from latex and non-latex condom catheters, depending on your needs.

How do you Size a Male External Catheter?

  • Make sure the penis is clean and dry: Before measuring, ensure that the penis is clean and dry to get an accurate measurement.
  • Place the stencil on the penis: Position the stencil over the penis with the opening of the stencil at the tip of the penis. The stencil should fit snugly around the shaft of the penis.
  • Choose the appropriate size: The stencil typically has multiple size options labeled mm. Select the size that best fits the circumference of the penis without being too tight or loose.
  • Check for proper fit: After selecting the size, check that the stencil fits comfortably around the penis without causing any discomfort, gaps, or constriction. The condom catheter should fit securely without slipping off or causing skin irritation.
  • Trial and error: Finding the right size using the stencil may take some trial and error. Monitor the comfort and effectiveness of the condom catheter during use and make adjustments as needed.

Female External Catheter

The PureWick Urinary Catheter is an innovative, non-invasive urine management continence aid designed for the female anatomy. The BD PureWick uses a low-pressure suction design to pull the urine into a container. Continuous use of adult diapers and pads makes the skin prone to damage due to constant exposure to urine. However, the Purewick female urinary catheter alternatively wicks the urine away and keeps the skin dry and soft. The PureWick female catheter gives women a new and simple way to manage urinary incontinence. Interestingly, it looks like a banana, hence the name banana catheter.

  • The unique non-invasive device for female

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. When is an external catheter used?

    These types of catheters are used when we cannot use an indwelling catheter. They are used externally, fit across the glans penis, and direct voided urine into a collecting device.

    Indications:

    • Limited access to the toilet due to dementia, impaired vision, or decreased mobility
    • Urinary tract infection
    • Safety concerns with unassisted toilet use
    • Uncontrollable urinary frequency
    • Reflexive voiding from spinal cord injuries
    • Damage to sphincter from prostatectomy
    • Urethral trauma
  2. What is the wear time of a Condom Catheter?

    What type of catheter is used largely depends on the patient's skin sensitivity; the wear time of the catheter may also vary. The average wear time is between 12 to 72 hours and should be re-evaluated periodically to ensure successful use.

  3. How to remove an external male condom catheter?

    The removal of the catheter is essential for the cleaning and inspection of the skin. It should be done every day unless the manufacturer specifies otherwise.

    • Use a warm towel to remove the male condom urinary catheters with adhesive. 
    • Gently lift a bit of catheter from the skin.
    • Pull the catheter material gently toward the skin. Avoid pinching on it; just a bit of thumb pressure and pull towards the body.
    • Cleaning with hot water prevents the catheter from getting contaminated.
  4. How do I know what size condom catheter I need?

    Measure around the shaft of the penis and divide that number by 3.14 (pie) to get the diameter. The condom catheters are sized in millimeters and are based on the diameter of your penis, not the circumference.

  5. What is a male condom catheter used for?

    An external condom catheter is a urinary catheter that allows urine flow that users can wear outside the penis instead of inside the urethra, a natural tube inside the penis. It collects urine for people who have difficulty holding it or cannot walk to the bathroom.

  6. How do you know what size male catheter to use?

    All manufacturers of condom urine catheters have a measuring guide to help you select the proper size. With a condom catheter sizing guide, put the notch area behind the glans and pick the size that fits most. If you measure between two sizes, choose the bigger of the two.

  7. When should I make an appointment with my doctor?

    Consult a doctor if -

    • Your urine is pink or red.
    • No pee has emptied through the catheter in the last 6 to 8 hours.
    • Your urine has a distinct odor.
    • Urine is heavy, cloudy, or contains mucous.
    • You have urethral, bladder, or abdominal pain or burning.
    • Your penis becomes bloated, red, or purple.

FAQ's

Frequently asked questions

External catheter systems also called condom catheters are used by men. This catheter fits over the penis and connects to a drainage bag. They are safer to use than internal catheters because it does not require a tube to be placed in the bladder.

External catheters are made from either latex rubber, polyvinyl, or silicone and are attached on the shaft of the penis by a double-sided adhesive, latex inflatable cuff, jockey's type strap, or foam strap. They are then joined to urine drainage bags by a tube.

External catheters are used for 24 to 48 hours and both disposable and reusable condom catheters are available.
