Jeremiah Catheters

  1. We got a resident back from the Hospital today. He has an order for a coude tip or a Jeremiah 18F. Now I know what a coude tip is, but what theheck is a Jeremiah catheter?

    I think P-RN has the answer. But who knows? There's a dozen names for the same thing in medicine, depending on which doctor invented it. A Coude is a scary shaped cath, great for men with thos humongous prostates.

    Thanks guys for the help. The Dr. who wrote the order has very legible handwriting. I guess I'll find out one of these days--or not!!
