The funnel end catheter has an insertion tip at one end and a drainage funnel at the other end. The drainage funnel is where the urine comes out. The funnel end catheter comprises three main parts: insertion tip that is used for insertion into the urethra or stoma, catheter tube, and funnel end. When urine drains from the bladder, first it comes to the drainage eyelets on the insertion tip. Then it flows through the catheter tube and finally leaves the catheter through the funnel end. HPFY carries a huge collection of intermittent catheters with funnel ends from various top-selling brands like Rusch, Self-Cath, Kendall, etc.
Not all intermittent catheters feature funnel ends; some have a Luer end or open tube. Choosing a specific catheter end is primarily based on your personal preference or what works best for you.
Luer end catheters are also known as whistle tip catheters. Instead of a funnel, they have tips that are like the ends of an open tube. Sometimes, Luer tip catheters are preferred because they have a smaller and more discreet packaging that becomes easy and convenient to carry along.
On the other hand, funnel end catheters help grip the catheter without touching the tube to prevent any sort of contamination. Funnel ends are also helpful in connecting to the drainage bag.
Catheters are sized using a universal gauge system referred to as French sizes. French size is abbreviated as Fr. The catheter sizes can range from 5Fr to 24Fr, with each catheter funnel color-coded for easy identification. Since everyone has different anatomy, no single catheter will fit all. You may take the help of your medical provider in determining the right size according to your anatomy. Choosing the right catheter size will allow you to catheterize without pain or discomfort.
