The BCIR Catheter website was created to make it a little easier to track down the standard 30 FR BCIR catheter. As a BCIR patient myself, I found that it was sometimes tricky to track down the BCIR catheter, or sometimes I was paying as much in shipping as the cost of the catheter itself. I also run the BCIR Advocate blog where I’ve been asked many time about where to get the catheter. Proceeds from your purchase help to support the BCIR Advocate Resource and Blog website. With all of the above, and a background in web design, I decided to put together a simple web store where we just list the BCIR Catheter, and offer easy payment transactions, tracking, and shipping options!
The 30 French catheter comes 12 inches in length and can be trimmed to your desired length. The tip is beveled with 2 holes on the sides. This is the popular one for the BCIR. Typically we suggest that it should be discarded after about 3-6 months of use. It is sold as a brand new, straight-end, non-sterile catheter for continent ileostomies.
