The Ugo Box

Introducing the newest kit in our Ugo Urology range. The Ugo Box is a fully equipped kit, containing everything needed to safely remove and insert a transurethral or suprapubic catheter in a community setting, following best practice aseptic catheterisation technique.

The Ugo Box gives you, the clinician, the option to select the catheter size (CH), catheterisation jelly syringe and leg bag, allowing you to select the best catheterisation kit for your patient. Available in 12 variations.

For suprapubic catheterisation procedures, we would recommend selecting a variation of The Ugo box that contains OptiLube catheterisation jelly.

OptiLube Active CHG Free is not suitable for suprapubic catheterisation procedures.

Catheterisation procedure packs reduce the incidence of CAUTI by 80%

Evidence suggests an average reduction in catheter associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) of 80% when urinary catheterisation kits/sets are introduced.

According to the European Association of Urology Nurses (EAUN) the main benefits of using urinary catheterisation kits are:

  • The standardisation of the process: adherence to urinary catheter insertion recommendations.
  • The inclusion in the kit/set of pre-connected and sealed urinary catheter systems, the components of which are linked by seals, will ensure that the system remains closed at all times, eliminating the risk of the “human factor” and ensuring adherence to the recommendation.
  • Nursing staff efficiency: more quality time for patient care.
  • Reduction in CAUTI, reduction in the consumption of antibiotics and the costs associated with such consumption, and the prevention of antibiotic resistance.
