Questions & answers

Q: How is it possible to make SpeediCath Compact Male so small?
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 more 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, also for men with low hand dexterity. 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 preparation steps are needed, SpeediCath Compact Male is instantly ready to use due to the unique hydrophilic coating which also covers the polished eyelets. This ensures an exceptionally smooth catheterisation 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 new type of catheter - a CH12 combined with a CH18. 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 to be 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.
