Male External Catheter / Condom Catheter If you have been told that the best solution for your incontinence is male external catheters or you are planning to try this system, this information will help you wear the device more comfortably and get the most wear time from it. Not all condom catheters are the same, so you may need to try several types before finding the one that suits you best. Originally condom catheters were just that – a condom with the end cut off, so it could be attached to a drainage tube and collection bag away from the body. Now, these devices are very carefully made. They come in several sizes, Male External Catheter with and without adhesive and with other special features. The National Association for Continence (NAFC) advises that you see a nurse specialist who is experienced in sizing and teaching men to use condom catheters.

Here are basic tips to get you started right with Male External Catheters:

• Buy the right size. A measuring guide will help you select the size that is best for you. • Clip hair on and/or around your penis and any pubic hair that might get caught as the condom catheter is rolled to the base of the penis. • Wash your penis and blot dry. The skin must be dry and warm. If you have just taken a hot shower and your bathroom is steamy, you will need to wait or move to a room where the air is not so moist. • Apply a skin prep sealant. Allow the sealant to dry until it is slick and smooth. There are two purposes for this skin sealant. It will protect your skin from perspiration and urine moisture; and when you remove the condom catheter, the layer of skin sealant – not the external layer of your skin – will be removed. • Hold your penis and place the rolled condom catheter over it. Leave enough space at the end of the condom catheter so the head of your penis does not rub against the inside of it. Most uncircumcised men leave their foreskin in place, over the head of the penis. Serious swelling of the foreskin, called “phimosis”, may result if the foreskin of the uncircumcised man is not kept over the head of the penis. • Unroll the adhesive-coated sheath slowly, pressing the condom against your skin. When the condom is completely unrolled, grip your penis all around for 10-15 seconds to be sure that any wrinkles in the condom are sealed together and to eliminate any air bubbles. If there are many wrinkles in the sheath, then the condom catheter is probably too large. • Sometimes the condom catheter does not fully unroll, and a roll of the condom will remain at the base of the penis. You should carefully snip the remaining roll in several places or remove it completely to ensure that the roll will not cause pressure sores at the base of the penis or cause the condom catheter to come off.
