Instillagel Almed Catheter Lubricant 10ml Each
Endourethral procedures such as catheterization involve the insertion of a catheter or other medical instrument into your urethra (the canal leading to your bladder).
To protect you from pain during the procedure, and to reduce the risk of injury and infection, doctors and nurses may use a lubricating gel called Instillagel.
Instillagel® is inserted into your urethra prior to insertion of a catheter or other medical instrument. Instillagel®?s unique triple action:
LUBRICATES the urethra to make the process of catheter insertion smoother
PREVENTS pain with lidocaine, a local anaesthetic
REDUCES risk of infection with chlorhexidine, an effective antiseptic
What Instillagel does:
Instillagel Almed is a STERILE lubricant. It contains a local anaesthetic 2% Lignocaine to prevent pain and 0.05% Chlorhexidine to reduce the risk of infection. It also provides lubrication to ease this process. Clinically evaluated effective against MRSA.
