1. Peel open the pouch and remove the catheter.
2. Do not hold or pinch the body of the case, or turn the dial before pulling the catheter out. This restricts movement in the wheel, preventing the catheter from being released.
3. Make sure you hold the catheter by the rim. Holding or pinching the body of the case would block the case from turning and won't allow you to pull the catheter out.
4. Advance the catheter by pressing down on the handle while gliding the sheath until the catheter reaches the bladder.
5. When bladder is empty, aim the catheter in the desired location and unplug the funnel by pushing it outwards.
6. Once drained, slowly remove the catheter from the urethra, coil it back into the case and dispose of it discreetly and hygienically.
