Catheters are never fun to deal with. They are uncomfortable and they can be messy. For the longest time, people had to sterilize their catheters between uses, and this added to the mess that was the catheters. However, there have been advancements in the field of urology and in the production of catheters in particular. The law has also made advancements in the use of catheters and the rights of those patients who must use the catheters and catheter bags.
Catheters are small plastic tubes that are inserted into the body to assist with the removal of urine from the body. This is often needed if there is a problem with the bladder or there are problems with the kidneys. There are a few other conditions that can cause the use of the catheters, but the general reason is due to problems with the bladder and kidneys. No matter what the reason for the use of the catheter, the catheter is necessary for many people.
There used to be a limit on the number of catheters that a person could order at a time. In addition, there were only so many catheters that the insurance companies were willing to cover. This limitation made the use of catheters very expensive, and difficult to obtain at times. This led to the need to sterilize the catheters at home. This was done by boiling water in a large vat or pot. The catheters were then placed in this boiling water for several minutes so that the bacterium would be destroyed.
The new medical news regarding the use of catheters is that the insurance companies are now required to pay for many more catheters than they were previously paying for. This helps to eliminate the need for the individual to consistently sterilize the catheters. This also helps to eliminate the number of infections that one might experience due to the catheter not being properly cleaned.
The other major news about the sterilization of catheters is that the new styles of catheters are far less porous than any of the previous types of catheters before. This makes them easier to clean if the catheters are going to be reused. These less porous catheters are also less expensive than the traditional catheters, making them more affordable for those who do not have insurance. This helps to keep the entire population of people who use catheters healthier.
