How to use ConvaTec GentleCath Urinary Catheter?

  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Withdraw the foreskin and wash the penis with soap and water.
  • Peel open the package.
  • Lubricate the catheter with water-soluble lubricant.
  • Take the pre-lubricated catheter out from the package.
  • Choose the position that is most comfortable.
  • Hold penis up toward your stomach. Do not squeeze penis, as this can block the opening. 
  • Straight Tip: Slide catheter slowly into the opening of urethra and into bladder until urine starts to flow.
  • Point penis and the funnel end of the catheter down towards container.
  • When the urine starts to flow, push the catheter in one or two cm to make sure that it is fully inside the bladder.
  • To make sure bladder is emptied completely, remove the catheter slowly and stop if more urine starts to flow.
  • When the bladder is empty, hold penis up toward stomach again and withdraw the catheter slowly. If uncircumsized, pull foreskin forward.
  • Discard catheter after use.
  • Wash hands.
    NOTE: Healthcare professionals use aseptic technique

  • Check the catheters integrity prior to insertion.
  • Select a replacement catheter if required.
  • Do not use if package has been previously opened or damaged.
  • Do not touch the catheter tip before insertion.
  • If there is no urine flow or other complications occur (e.g. pain, difficult insertion or removal, bleeding, signs of urinary tract infection or discharge) please consult a healthcare professional.
  • After incorrect insertion, catheters must be discarded and not re-used. A new catheter should be selected. Used catheters should always be discarded

What does the CH stand for in 16 CH/FR

The French scale or French gauge system is commonly used to measure the size of a catheter. It is most often abbreviated as Fr, but can often be seen abbreviated as Fg, FR or F. It may also be abbreviated as CH or Ch (for Charrière, its inventor). However, simply gauge, G or GA generally refers to Birmingham gauge.
