LIMERICK, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 23, 2012-- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE:TFX), a leading global provider of medical devices for critical care and surgery, has introduced an extension to its family of Hydrophilic Catheters. The FloCath Quick Female Catheter kits are specifically designed for female use in intermittent catheterization.
It's a challenge to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle while managing one's bladder via intermittent catheterization. The Teleflex FloCath Quick Female Catheter is an easy to use, compact catheter with an integrated saline wetting solution and a handling sheath to aid in insertion. Teleflex offers sterile saline rather than sterile water as it is closest to the body's natural fluid balance and can help reduce drying of the mucosal tissue.1 The Teleflex(R) FloCath Quick Female Insertion Kit comes complete with the FloCath Quick Female Catheter and the insertion supplies many individuals require. It also includes a measured urine collection bag and a refuse bag for disposal; all in a compact package.
"The FloCath Quick products offer an easy to use, reasonably priced solution for those with an active lifestyle looking for a compact way to manage their bladder," said Linda Beneze, Vice President and General Manager, Specialty Products. "It's one of our many urology products that demonstrate our commitment to working as a partner and trusted resource for our customers."
