    - Molly H.

    I was a little hesitant leaving my previous medical supplier consisting of 50 plus employees because I was comfortable with them. Now after over 7 years using New Britain Medical Supplies, I have been completely satisfied. I am greeted on a personal basis and all of my physical and personal needs are met promptly. Whether it is a change in medical supplies or insurance, they have helped me get my supplies the next day to my door with no questions asked. I know I can trust New Britain Medical because of Joey’s insights and personal experiences using the products he sells.

  • Which Catheter Fits Your Needs?

    With so many catheters on the market today, a patient who may need to use a catheter for the first time may be feeling clueless as to which catheter will be best for them. Some people may even be unaware of the use of a catheter and how it can help them. Here are some catheter basics and some examples of new catheters that are available today.

    The Basics:

    There are many different types of catheters (thin tubes that help to drain urine from the bladder) and manufacturers of catheters. The use of a catheter also ranges from urinary incontinence, urinary retention, or neurogenic bladder disorders that do not allow one to empty the bladder without the use of a catheter. This can range from patients with Spinal Cord Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Spina Bifida, and others.

    Catheter types include: straight, coude, hydrophilic, closed system, condom, and foley. These catheters have many different sizes, which is known as the “French” size. This is another way to describe the diameter of the catheter. These normally range from a pediatric 8 to adult 18. The length of these catheters are typically either a Female 6″ or Male 16″ but can vary in length.
