Patient care and comfort is drastically enhanced by using the original CATH-SECURE catheter tube holder by M.C. Johnson. It's applied by removing the adhesive side and affixing it to the top of the thigh of the patient to secure a catheter in place. The Cath-Secure has a built-in single tab which comes in two sizes (5445-2 and 5445-3) to accommodate for varying tube sizes. The tab wraps around the catheter to form a lumen to anchor the Foley Catheter. The Cath-Secure tube holder gives the patient the ability to move around freely without uncomfortable tugging or worry about the catheter being pulled out. This increases nursing productivity not having to replace catheters.
The alcohol-soluble adhesive side of the Cath-Secure is hypoallergenic to be gentle to the skin. It can hold the catheter for up to a week without altering the skin's integrity. The tube holder is multi-purpose and is also used to secure subclavian line ports, ekg lead wires or a dialysis tubing.
The CATH-SECURE DUAL TAB tube holder is another great product by M.C. Johnson to anchor tubing. It is applied like the original Cath-Secure but features dual tabs with a press-on hook-and-loop fastening system. The tabs are flexible and longer to hold varying tube sizes that can be adjusted as needed without the need for re-taping. This provides repeated access to tubing without restricting the flow. The Cath-secure Dual Tab (5445-4) is also used as a multi-purpose tube holder for peritoneal dialysis exit site tubing, leg bag tubing, condom catheters and prostatectomy tubes. The Cath-Secure Plus (5445-6) also eliminates the need for re-taping with one tab and a butterfly base design.
