Presentation Transcript

  1. Tip Catheter Coude (coo-day) is a French word that means bend or elbow. MTG coude tip catheters have a curved tip that doctors prescribe when a patient has conditions that can make inserting a straight tip catheter difficult. The curved coude catheter can navigate more easily past tight spots, common in the male with enlarged prostate, or strictures along the urethra. Specify if your doctor has prescribed coude tip, or straight tip when requesting MTG Instant Cath® catheters from our Samples Request page. MTG Instant Cath® Coude Tip Catheter Features Curved coude tip makes it easier to navigate catheter past tight spots, strictures, or an enlarged prostate. Pre-lubricated catheter makes it easier and faster to use. Our unique MTG introducer tip can lessen the risk of the recurrence of Urinary Tract Infections. Soft, fire polished, smooth eyelets (drainage holes) allow for comfortable passage through the urethra and into the bladder. Offset eyes, located near the tip of the catheter, provide drainage from two points within the bladder. The catheter bag protects the sterility of the tube and collects the urine. The bag capacity is 1500 ml. The catheter is available in 12, 14 or 16 Fr., 16” length. The enclosed privacy bag allows for discreet disposal of used catheter and supplies. 100% latex-free Benzalkonium chloride (BZK) clear, odor-free, alcohol-free, antiseptic prep Made in the USA Cath-Lean® Urinary Female Catheters Until recently, women were asked to use the same urinary catheter as men, particularly concerning closed system, intermittent catheters. We are proud to introduce MTG Cath-Lean®, the uniquely female closed system, affording infection protection, with discretion. Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) can be life-threatening for some users of intermittent catheters. Know that MTG Cath-Lean® provides UTI defense via the introducer tip, protecting the tube from bacteria located within the distal urethra. Potential contamination is also reduced since

  2. the sterile tube is passed from within the sterile collection bag, and into the bladder without coming in contact with the fingers, gloves, etc. Kiddie-Kath® Kids Urinary Catheters Ever wonder why nearly every pediatric intermittent catheter is in a pouch too big for a pocket? Or, if you are familiar with closed system urinary catheters, why are most pediatric products packaged with same size collection bag as adult versions? After several years of development, and listening to children and parents alike, we’re pleased to introduce MTG Kiddie-Kath®, the first closed system intermittent urinary catheter just for kids. Privacy is a big deal to everyone, especially to children when it comes to their bladder catheterizations. We believe we have addressed each concern a child might raise. MTG Kiddie-Kath® is in a child-friendly “Mini-Pak “ outer container, and easily fits in a pocket or purse. When opening, the wrapper is soft and quiet so the other kids in the restroom won’t wonder what’s going on behind the stall door. We also learned that many children are self- conscious about lubricant spills on their clothes, and discarding used catheter supplies in a school waste can. Pre-lubrication minimizes mess to keep clothes lube-free. We also include our popular privacy bag for discreet disposal of used catheter and supplies. With MTG, your child will realize that cathing can be quick, easy, and they won’t have to explain their bladder program to other curious kids. Urinary Tract Infection Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) have caused serious health problems for people with paraplegia or quadriplegia for many decades, regardless of the bladder management method employed. It is customary procedure for a physician to prescribe antibiotics to treat UTIs when they occur. However, in order to combat future recurrence, some physicians prescribe "prophylactic" antibiotics, or the ongoing use of these medicines even after symptoms have long disappeared, as a preventive measure. Unfortunately, medical research has proven that continued use of antibiotics can cause bacterial resistance, requiring higher doses and/or stronger antibiotics to treat infections. Antibiotic resistance is a widespread problem, prompting the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calling it "one of the world’s most pressing public health problems today." In individuals using intermittent catheterization, clinical tests have proven there is a safer, non-medicinal method of reducing the risk of recurrent Urinary Tract Infections. Since the introduction and popularization of intermittent catheterization in the early 1970s, people with paraplegia, and some with quadriplegia, have enjoyed a much freer and more satisfying lifestyle. Through the 70s and 80s, clean catheterization was promoted. For more information please visit http://www.medtechga.com
