PVC intermittent catheters are intended to be used to provide an intermittent pathway for short term drainage of fluids from the bladder for either male (Nelaton and Tiemann) and female (rounded end like this example) or for intravesical instillation. Products are designed for transient use only, i.e. max. 10-20 minutes. The product is intended for single use only. The moulded inscription LoFric stands for low friction.
