Nelaton Catheter

Nelaton catheters are some of the most commonly used catheters for peritoneal dialysis. They are soft, rounded, closed-tip catheters that come in two varieties: atraumatic and mechanical. Atraumatic catheters have a soft, rounded tip that makes them gentle on your tissue and they have two lateral eyes that help with efficient drainage. Mechanical catheters have a more pointed tip and are less likely to cause pain or inflammation when inserted.

What is a Nelaton Catheter?

A Nelaton catheter is a soft, rounded, closed-tip catheter designed to efficiently drain fluid and blood from the bladder. The two lateral eyes on the tip help to ensure accurate drainage.

Advantages of a Nelaton Catheter

There are many advantages to using a Nelaton catheter. The soft, rounded design makes it easy to handle and prevents irritation during drainage. The two lateral eyes provide efficient drainage, and the closed tip minimizes the risk of infection.

How to Use a Nelaton Catheter

If you are looking for a catheter that is gentle on your bladder and easy to use, the Nelaton Atraumatic Catheter may be the right choice for you. The soft, rounded design helps to minimizes pain and discomfort while drainage is taking place, and the two lateral eyes provide efficient drainage. This catheter is also closed-tip, meaning that it stops short of the urethra in order to minimize the risk of infection.

Disadvantages of a Nelaton Catheter

A nelaton catheter is a soft, rounded, closed-tip catheter that is atraumatic. It has two lateral eyes for efficient drainage. However, there are a few disadvantages of this type of catheter. First, it is difficult to remove and can be painful if it becomes stuck in the bladder. Second, it can be difficult to track down where the drainage is taking place, since the tip is closed. Third, because the catheter is atraumatic, it can cause damage to the bladder if it is forced into the bladder too forcefully.

Hydrophilic Catheters

Nelaton catheters are similar to straight catheters in terms of length and insertion tip options. The main difference is that hydrophilic catheters have a unique coating that activates with water, making them lubricated and ready to use. These don’t require additional catheter lubricating jelly so you can use these with less mess and less effort.

Closed System Catheters

Nelaton catheter catheters are all-in-one sterile options that come in a self-contained collection bag. Frequent travelers and people in wheelchairs often prefer closed system catheter kits, thanks to their ease of use. Plus, these pre-lubricated catheters often come with additional insertion supplies like gloves, an underpad, and antiseptic wipes to minimize the risk of infection. In addition, closed systems feature introducer tips, which help bypass the highest concentrations of bacteria in the urethra. All of the above-mentioned types of intermittent catheters are typically available in a variety of options, depending on the brand you choose, including:
  • straight tip catheters
  • coudé tip catheters
  • male length catheters
  • female length catheters
  • pediatric length catheters
  • pocket catheters

Indwelling Foley Catheters

If intermittent catheters are not an option, then your doctor may determine you should have an indwelling Foley catheter. Your doctor or a nurse will place the Foley catheter for you. A small inflated balloon holds the Foley catheter in place in the bladder, which keeps it in place for days or weeks. The length of time depends on your doctor’s recommendation. One potential downside of using a Foley catheter is that it may increase the risk of infections like UTIs (urinary tract infections). When a catheter is left in for long periods of time as with Foleys, a relation catheter can sometimes lead to bacterial growth in the urethra and bladder. What is Intermittent Catheterization? Nelaton and urethral catheters are used for intermittent catheterization and are markedly different from chronic indwelling catheters and external catheters. These are meant for short-term bladder catheterization. Intermittent catheterization is a process in which a catheter is inserted into the bladder for the drainage of urine and then is immediately removed. The catheter tube is most often passed through the urethra. The urine is drained into a toilet, bag, or urinal. Self-intermittent urethral catheterization is quite common, however, it is a clinical decision made by your doctor. Intermittent catheterization can be done both in the short term and the long term. Risks associated with intermittent catheterization include urinary tract infections (UTI), urethral damage, the creation of false passages, and the formation of bladder stones in some cases. Intermittent catheters provide freedom from collection accessories which is their biggest advantage and generally recommended to those with a neuropathic bladder (uncoordinated and abnormal bladder function). Nelaton and Urethral Catheters are used for Intermittent Catheterization Nelaton catheters used in hospitals are straight tube–like catheters with one hole at the side of the tip and a connector at the other end for drainage. Nelaton catheters are made from medical-grade PVC. They are generally rigid or stiff to aid insertion into the urethra. Male nelaton catheters are longer than female catheters; however, male catheters can be used by female patients. This is because the female urethra is shorter than the male urethra. Nelaton catheters are meant for one-time use and should be used only for intermittent catheterization.
