More On Hollister Apogee HC Hydrophilic Intermittent Catheter

Self-Intermittent Catheterization (SIC):

When the bladder does not empty on its own, SIC may be recommended. It involves using a catheter to drain urine from your bladder via the urethra. Urine should be expelled on a regular basis throughout the day to keep the body healthy.

Application Instructions For Female:
- The Apogee HC hydrophilic intermittent catheter from Hollister becomes slippery when activated with water. For added convenience, the catheter package includes a pack of sterile water
  • Release the water: Without opening the package, fold the water pack in half. Apply pressure to the water pack to release the water (burst pack) either by squeezing the folded pack between your thumb and forefinger or pressing it down against a firm surface
  • Wet the catheter: Holding the package, use a seesaw motion to tip the package up and down 6 times to wet the catheter. Wait at least 30 seconds from when you wet the catheter to use it.
  • Wash your hands with mild soap and water.
  • Open the package: using the finger holes on the package, peel the package about halfway open. If necessary, use adhesive tab on the package, to affix package to a surface while preparing to catheterize.
  • Spread the labia and cleanse around opening of urethra with mild, unscented soap or a non-alcohol wet wipe. 
  • Remove the catheter from the package gripping the funnel and/or the sliding sleeve. 
  • Hold the inner labia apart and insert the catheter tip into the urethral opening. Direct funnel end of catheter into appropriate receptacle. Holding only the sliding sleeve, advance the catheter forward until the urine starts to flow, moving the sliding sleeve towards the funnel as needed.
  • When the urine has stopped flowing, slowly withdraw the catheter to ensure bladder is completely empty. Then gently remove catheter completely. Dispose of catheter and package. Do not flush down the toilet. Wash your hands

Application Instructions For Male:
  • Release the water: Without opening the package, fold the water pack in half. Apply pressure to the water pack to release the water (burst pack) either by squeezing the folded pack between your thumb and forefinger or pressing it down against a firm surface 
  • Wet the catheter: Holding the package, use a seesaw motion to tip the package up and down 6 times to wet the catheter. Wait at least 30 seconds from when you wet the catheter to use it. 
  • Wash your hands with mild soap and water. 
  • Open the package: using the finger holes on the package, peel the package about halfway open. If necessary, use adhesive tab on the package, to affix package to a surface while preparing to catheterize.
  • Hold the penis. Pull back foreskin (if present) and cleanse the opening of the urethra and glans with mild, unscented soap or non-alcohol wet wipe. 
  • Remove the catheter from the package gripping the funnel and/or the sliding sleeve. 
  • Hold the penis in an upright position and insert the catheter tip in to the urethral opening. Direct the funnel end of the catheter into an appropriate receptacle. Holding only the sliding sleeve, advance the catheter until urine starts to flow, moving the sliding sleeve towards the funnel as needed. 
  • When the urine has stopped flowing, slowly withdraw the catheter to ensure bladder is completely empty. Then gently remove catheter completely. Dispose of catheter and package. Do not flush down the toilet.
