A VETERAN OWNED SMALL BUSINESS
CDC studies and other white paper studies published in the medical journals “Emerging Infectious Diseases” and “Clinical Infectious Diseases” find that Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) are the leading cause of all hospital acquired infections (HAI). The majority of these infections are caused by mishandling and excessive manipulation of the urinary drainage bag and tubing. Our innovative and novel CATHSTRAP addresses these causes described by the CDC guidelines.
1. Keep the collection bag below the level of the
bladder at all times.
2. Do not rest the bag on the patient’s lap
3. Keep the catheter and drainage tubing free
4. Maintain unobstructed urine flow.
