SUPRA-CATH
(Original Concept Design)
Urethral/Urinary Catheter
(Malfunctioning of the Current System)
BETTER FIT.
PEACE OF MIND
.
WORLDS ONLY (TRUE) SUPRA-PUBIC CATHETER
Specifically designed to address the unique demands of the supra-pubic stoma.
Immobilizes and stabilizes your S/P cath for improved/optimal performance.
The Supra-Cath Adaptor was created by
a Med Surg/ICU Nurse, who went above
and beyond to maximize patient care.
This website will shows you a new
improvement in Supra-Pubic Catheter
design that eliminates the downfalls of
current system giving the medical
community an alternative to the
present day "flaw riddled" system.
The advantages that the Supra-Cath
affords its users are indeed outstanding.
WHAT IS A SUPRA-PUBIC CATHETER
A S/P catheter is used for drainage of urine from the bladder
through a stoma (tunnel) just above the pubic bone on the lower
abdomen, therefore bypassing the urethra entirely. A Foley/
Urethral Catheter/ is inserted  through the pelvic wall, directly into
the bladder for drainage of urine. The current system has many
disadvantages, and can cause life-changing adverse effects for
the patients who have this medical procedure performed.

Top Concerns for People/Patients with Supra-Pubic Bladders
1.   LEAKAGE.
2.   INFECTION OF THE BLADDER-{incidences of U.T.I.’s &  
urosepsis}   
3.   ENLARGEMENT OF THE STOMA-{introduction of larger
and larger bore catheters to hold the balloon in place}.
4.   FORMATION OF WOUNDS-{wetness combined with
pressure}.
5.   COMPLICATIONS OR PROLONGED WOUND HEALING-
{as dressings become saturated by urine}.
6.   ODOR OF URINE.
7.   CONTAMINATION/INFECTION OF WOUNDS-{by organisms
from urine}.
8.   POSITIONING LIMITATIONS-{fear of leakage}.
9.   FEAR OF PARTICIPATION IN ACTIVITIES, AND OR
RECREATION.
10. DISTURBANCES IN BODY IMAGE-{patient comfort and
confidence}

Ask yourself one question:
If you had to have a Supra-Pubic Catheter, which catheter would you Choose?
The Catheter is inserted directly into the bladder through the Supra-Pubic
area. The balloon on the catheter is then inflated within the bladder, and
then pulled snuggly to occlude the opening from the bladder to the stoma
tunnel. The Supra-Cath adaptor is now threaded down the length of the
catheter towards the balloon, securing and immobilizing the catheter at
that point securing the balloon under slight tension in its ideal location
(similar to the way a gastrostomy tube works), thusly creating a closed/
sealed system.
The Catheter is inserted directly into the bladder through the supra-
pubic area. The balloon on the catheter is then inflated within the
bladder, and then pulled snuggly to occlude the opening from the
bladder to the stomal tunnel. The problem with this system is that with
the rigidity and flexibility of a latex or silicone catheter and the weight of
the fluid filled balloon along with any slight movement of the patient or
catheter dislodges the balloon from it’s ideal location resulting in
malfunction.
Counter
Model 2007
The "Suction cup" shaped balloon retention disc does the job of a original disc
however in not contacting the insertion site what so ever, this cup avoids the problems
that originate at this often high risk area . This cup also provides ventilation,
protection and visualization of the tissue beneath, creating a dryer healthier
environment at the insertion site.
THE SUPRA-PUBIC SOLUTION
Do you want a
catheter that just
hangs there, left at
the mercy of
gravity and patient
movement?

Or

Do you want a
catheter that is
held or secured in
place /
immobilized in its
intended and most
operationally
functional
position?
The
Supra-Cath
Adaptor
positions, stabilizes
and immobilizes any
urinary catheter
being utilized for
supra-pubic
purposes.


An
Improvement
for All,
and Truly
Life-Changing
for Some.
The "Supra-Cath"Supra-Pubic Adaptor  
creates and maintains a physical
barrier to leakage making it physically
impossible for fluid /urine to escape  
around the catheter and its balloon.
SUPRA-PUBIC ADAPTOR
The Supra-Cath adaptor can be applied to any catheter (latex preferred) to limit all the
adverse effects currently experienced by suprapubic patients.
