Why You Need a Catheter with Vision?
Having a urinary catheter placed can be uncomfortable. This discomfort can be due to:
- An enlarged prostate (BPH)
- Stricture disease
- Past injuries
- Urologic procedures
- And many other reasons.
When you have one of these difficulties, a special catheter can help the healthcare provider see where the catheter is going and ease placement.
The DirectVision® Guide enables the nurse, acute care physician or urologist the ability to visually examine the urethra and bladder and aid in the placement of a Foley catheter. The guide provides illumination and real-time video to the camera and monitor while viewing the visually guided urinary catheter placement.
Key features include:
Integrated micro-endoscopic technologies
Fiber-optic bundle of 6,000 integrated fibers to provide illumination and transmit real-time video
Easily inserted into the DirectVision® catheter and quickly locks securely to the camera
