What is Cathing?

Cathing refers to the regular insertion of a hollow plastic tube (a catheter) into the bladder to drain urine. You may also hear it referred to as intermittent catheterization (IC) or intermittent self-catheterization (ISC).

Cathing is done when your bladder is full, and if you are unable to pass urine or to drain any remaining urine if your bladder has not emptied completely. Your bladder needs to be emptied four to six times a day, depending on how much liquid you drink.

  • Urethral Opening: The catheter is inserted into the opening of the urethra (the little hole where urine comes out). 
  • Urethra: The catheter travels through the urethra to the bladder. 
  • Bladder: Once the catheter is in the bladder, it can drain the urine.

What to Buy with ConvaTec Hydrophilic Intermittent Catheter?



How To Use GentleCath Glide Catheter?

Male Intermittent Catheterization:
  • 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.

Female Intermittent Catheterization:
  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Clean the genital area from the front to the back, from the inside to the outside, with soap and water.
  • Choose the position that is most comfortable. Move pelvis forward as much as possible to get a better view. Use a mirror to find the opening of the urethra.
  • Peel open the package.
  • Lubricate the catheter with water-soluble lubricant.
  • Take the catheter out from the package.
  • With one hand, spread the labia (the loose tissue on either side of the urethra) apart and lift it gently upwards. The urethral opening should now be visible.
  • With other hand, slowly push the catheter into urethra until the urine starts to flow. Make sure the funnel end is pointing into a 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 withdraw the catheter slowly.
  • Discard catheter after use.
