Catheter lubricant is an important part of every intermittent catheter regimen. This is also referred to as "catheter jelly" or "catheter lubricating jelly." Lubricants are a blend of natural water-soluble gums that provide instant lubrication, which makes them ideal for inserting catheters. There are slight differences in the consistency of the various brands, with some brands having a slightly more or less watery feel. Surgilube and other brands are available in 4oz. tubes, 3-gram, and 5-gram packets. Remember to add water-soluble lubricant to your catheter order. Cardinal lubricants are very balanced and are a good choice for most catheter users.
