Hydrophilic Catheter

Hydrophilic catheters are special types which contain a coated surface that, when activated by water, becomes super slick, making catheterization smooth and almost effortless. The most basic type requires tap water to activate. The most common one contains a water packet within the package.  When squeezed, the water packet ruptures and releases the water or saline, which then wets the catheter to activate the super slick coating. Examples are the Cure Hydrophilic, Magic3, FloCath Quick, Hi-Slip, LoFric, and PECO Hydrophilic. The ones that do not require the addition of tap water or a water packet to activate them include the SpeediCath and VaPro, which are basically ready-to-use right out of the pack.
