Clean Intermittent Self Catheterisation - Male(CISC)
It is the periodic insertion of a hollow tube (catheter) through the urethra into the urinary bladder, because the catheter is hollow, urine will flow through it and the bladder will empty.
Self catheterisation reduces the number of wetting incidents, freeing you for a more active, confident and healthy life style.
What equipments are required?
How to do?
Step 1: Wash your hands with soap and water. During the procedure, touch only the catheter equipment to avoid coming in contact with germs that could possibly lead to a urinary tract infection.
Step 2: Hold the penis up with one hand and wash the tip of the penis to the base of the glans with soap and water.
Step 3: Position yourself in front of the toilet. Many men prefer to stand during the procedure.
Step 4: Lubricate the catheter end that will go into the urethra. Lubricate the tip and the first 6 inches of the catheter.
Step 5: Hold your penis at a right angle to your body, grasp the catheter as you would a pen and slowly insert it into the urethra.
Step 6: When the urine stops, slowly begin to withdraw the catheter with a slow, steady pulling motion. If urine again starts to flow, stop each time more urine drains out. Pinch the catheter just before removing completely to avoid soiling yourself with urine.
