What Is a Latex Free Catheter?

Catheters can be made of various materials, and latex is a common choice for the likes of Foley catheters and intermittent catheters. However, it is also possible to find latex-free catheters which do not feature latex in any part of their design.

This can be very important, as there are people out there who suffer from latex allergies. Therefore, for these patients, the use of latex catheters simply is not an option, as they could trigger unwanted side effects once the catheter has been inserted.

Latex-free catheters offer an alternative. They are usually made entirely from silicone, which has similar properties to latex and is able to work in a similar way for the likes of Foley and intermittent catheterization.

One of the big differences with latex-free catheters is that they’re usually not as flexible as latex catheters, so insertion can be a little harder and potentially more painful, too. Lubricants are often used with latex-free catheters to make insertion easier.

How Does a Latex-Free Catheter Work?

Latex-free catheters work just like any other kind of catheter. The only thing that sets them apart is that they don’t feature any latex. Usually, they are used to help patients urinate. To do this, the tip will need to be lubricated somehow or may come with its own pre-lubricant coating. Once lubricated, the tip can be pushed into the patient’s urethra and inserted several inches into the body until it connects with the bladder, allowing urine to pass through and into a collecting receptacle, like a catheter bag.

Latex-Free Catheter Sizes 

Latex-free catheters are available in a wide range of sizes, with different lengths and diameters to suit different patients and processes. The French gauge system is typically used to measure the diameters of latex-free catheters, with smaller ratings like 3 and 5 Fr for narrow tubes and larger ratings like 24 and 26 Fr for the widest catheters.

Latex-Free Catheter Types

There are various types of latex-free catheters, including latex-free Foley catheters, intermittent catheters, and even external catheters. Foley catheters are one of the most common varieties. They are inserted into the urethra and connected to a catheter bag, which stores urine as it flows out of the bladder and through the catheter tube. Intermittent latex-free catheters are used in a similar way, but designed for more short-term use. External latex-free catheters do not have to be inserted into the body at all but collect urine as it leaves the urethra instead.

Latex-Free Catheter Uses

Since there are various types of latex-free catheters, there are also many different uses of these catheters. Latex-free Foley catheters, for example, are used for patients who, for one reason or another, may find it difficult, painful, or impossible to urinate naturally. External latex-free catheters, meanwhile, can help people who are able to urinate but may have reduced mobility that makes it difficult for them to access toilets, or may be suffering from incontinence.

Latex Free Catheter Suppliers

Coloplast, C. R. Barrd, Carefusion, Medline, and Covidien are some of the top providers of latex-free catheters.
