how to pack compact intermittent catheters

Pack a “smart kit”

What to pack for when you’re away from home.

Bladder issues – what to pack

Compact intermittent catheters don’t take up much space in your bag. But when you are away from home you may want to bring more than just your catheters to ensure that you can catheterise in a safe and convenient way regardless of the bathroom facilities.

So when you are at work, travelling, doing sports or socialising, make sure that you have everything you could possibly need – also in case you have ‘an accident’ -

Ideas for what you could pack – depending on your needs:

  • Catheters (always pack extra)
  • Extra underwear and maybe extra clothing
  • Disposable gloves
  • Wet wipes/ towelettes
  • Antibacterial gel or hand wash
  • Hand-held mirror
  • Plastic bags (for used accessories, used catheters or wet garments)
  • Pads
  • A bottle of water
  • Paper towels or tissues
