Nelaton urological catheter with hydrophilic coating, various sizes
A Nelaton catheter with hydrophilic coating is a type of urological catheter used for urinary tract drainage. The hydrophilic coating is a special treatment on the surface of the catheter that makes it slippery when wet, allowing for easier insertion and reducing the risk of tissue irritation or injury. The Nelaton catheter is a straight, single-lumen catheter that is commonly used for short-term drainage.
When using the Nelaton catheter with a hydrophilic coating, there is no need for the additional use of a medical lubricant.
