Medline Silvertouch Two-Way 100% Silicone Straight Tip Foley Catheter incorporates the power of silver through a process that binds silver ions to the catheters lubricious coating. The hydrophilic coating is covalently bonded to the catheter surface, hydrates quickly, and maintains its lubricity, helping to reduce friction and irritation. The brilliant green color is visual evidence of the silver hydrophilic coating on each catheter.

Medline Silvertouch 100% Silicone Foley Catheter Features:

  • Not made with natural rubber latex
  • Sterile
  • Single use only

What to buy with Medline 100% Silicone Catheter


What are the Causes of Urinary Tract Infection?

  • It occurs when bacteria gets into your bladder or kidneys, causing symptoms such as painful urination, more frequent urination, lower abdominal pain or pressure, blood in your urine, or fever
  • Because you empty your bladder by intermittent catheterization, you are more likely to get bacteria enter in your urinary tract.
  • When a catheter is passed through the urethra, it can pick up bacteria from the skin and push it into the bladder where it can grow and multiply, especially if the urine remains in the bladder for a prolonged amount of time (more than four to eight hours)

What are the Preventive measures to deal with UTI?

Although it is very difficult to prevent all urinary tract infections, a large number can be avoided by practicing good preventive measures:

  • Hand hygiene remains the first and most important preventive measure. Be diligent about cleaning your hands with soap and water or alcohol - based hand cleanser before and after catheter insertion
  • Empty your bladder at least once every six hours
  • Drink enough fluids to keep the urine volume between 300-400 ml (about 1-1/2 cups) at each catheterization
  • Avoid bubble baths

What do the experts say about Medline SilverTouch Silicone Foley Catheter?

“We initiated exclusive use of the Silvertouch Foley catheter for all of our patients requiring catheterization. We were very excited after two months of use – when we saw no catheter associated urinary tract infections in our patients using the Silvertouch. As the months progressed – we continued to see fantastic results. At the end of five months – we saw a consistent pattern of zero catheter associated urinary tract infections.”
