Explanation Of The CIC Catheter?
Good evening, I want to ask, what do you mean by the CIC catheter anyway, thank you.
p dir = "ltr"> Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
CIC stands for Clean Intermittent Catheterization, which is periodic catheterization. Catheterization is a medical procedure that aims to empty the bladder. The procedure is carried out using a catheter in the form of a small, flexible long hose. This action is carried out on people who cannot urinate spontaneously or normally.
CIC is different from the installation of urine catheters that are usually done in hospitals. Where CIC actions are carried out with clean techniques, without having to be sterile. So that the action can be done by the patient or the patient's own family. Before installing the catheter hose, the installer should simply wash his hands with soap and clean water (can be added by using a little 70% alcohol afterwards). Then, the installer does not need to use gloves, this is different from the urine catheter that is installed in the hospital by medical personnel. Then, the catheter can be directly installed and urine collected for the amount to be measured. After completion, the catheter tube can be immediately pulled back and washed with boiling water.
The use of this CIC technique can make patients feel comfortable because they do not have to carry tubes and catheter bags everywhere. So that patients can be free in their activities.
Thus hopefully useful.
