Transparent - Water-soluble Ideal for Single- handed Application Aspiration of Urine Possible
Composition 100 g contain: 2 g lidocaine hydrochloride and 0.05 g chlorhexidinedihydrochloride
Properties and mechanism of action Cathejell with lidocaine contains a sterile, water-soluble, colourless, clear jelly for intra-urethral instillation. Lidocaine hydrochloride has a regionally anaesthetising effect. An admixture of stabilisers is not required, as Cathejell is autoclaved. The base of the break-off tip is sunk in the application cone so that kinking does not lead to sharp edges.
Indications Instillation into the urethra before the introduction of a catheter or other instruments
Dosage The content of one syringe is sufficient to fill the urethra. The syringe volume is 12.5 or 8.5 g, of which 10 g or 6 g are introduced into the urethra during instillation. Never instil more than 1 syringe.
Contraindications Hypersensitivity to any one of the components of the preparation, severe bradyarrhythmia; do not press into the urethra after a failed catheterisation (possibly apply to the instrument or draw off the urine suprapubically). Pregnancy and lactation Application during pregnancy and lactation is possible.
Special Warnings for Safe Application In patients with severe bradyarrhythmia or under anaesthesia a lubricant without lidocaine must be used.
