Questions & answers

Q: How is it possible to make SpeediCath Compact Male so compact?
A: Thanks to its telescopic design it’s less than half the size of a standard male catheter. SpeediCath Compact Male can therefore be stored, carried, used and disposed of discreetly.



Q: Will the transition create discomfort when using the catheter?
A: You should not expect any more discomfort using SpeediCath Compact Male than when using a regular catheter like SpeediCath (1,2).

 


Q: How do I open SpeediCath Compact Male?
A: SpeediCath Compact Male is easy to open. Hold the catheter vertically so the tip points upwards and open by twisting the lid.



Q: How do I prepare the catheter for use?
A: No extra steps are needed for lubrication. SpeediCath Compact Male is instantly ready to use due to the unique hydrophilic coating which also covers the polished eyelets. This ensures a smooth catheterization both during insertion and withdrawal.

 


Q: SpeediCath Compact Male is shorter than a normal catheter. Is the length sufficient to empty my bladder?
A: SpeediCath Compact Male is designed to be discreet and shorter than a regular catheter, but without compromising the ability to empty the bladder effectively (3).

 


Q: I normally use a CH14. Will using SpeediCath Compact Male allow me to empty my bladder just as fast?
A: SpeediCath Compact Male is a telescoping catheter, with a 12 French proximal end transitioning into an 18 French distal end. The time it will take to empty a full bladder will almost be the same for a CH14 and SpeediCath Compact Male. It will take approximately 4 seconds longer to empty a 400ml full bladder, but SpeediCath Compact Male is found much easier to insert.



Q: How do I reseal and dispose the catheter discreetly?
A: The lid can be re-tightened with no risk of leakage. After use, simply put the lid back on, discretion is retained and nobody will notice it is a catheter being discarded.

This catheter has changed my life completely

“This catheter has changed my life completely”
Dan, SpeediCath® Compact Male user.

For father-of-two Dan, SpeediCath Compact Male is the difference between yes and no. When his multiple sclerosis began leaving him with little control over his bladder, Dan’s life grew more and more constrained. More often than not he would avoid leaving the house for fear of not being near a toilet. But intermittent self-catheterization started to give him new confidence and now, with the extra discretion and convenience provided by SpeediCath Compact Male, ‘the Dan that says yes’ is well and truly back.
