The Macy Catheter: The best alternative for rapid administration of medications and fluids

Macy CatheterWhen the oral route is compromised, patients still need medications and fluids. Patented and FDA-cleared, the Macy Catheter provides access to the clinically proven rectal route of delivery. It is designed to make the rectal route a practical, painless, and discreet alternative for medications that can be prescribed per rectum. The Macy Catheter can be used in multiple settings, such as hospice and palliative care, skilled nursing facilities, and the emergency department. Once the Macy Catheter is placed by a clinician, the medication port is easily and discreetly accessible on the patient’s leg or abdomen, allowing for repeated delivery of medication without the need to invade the patient’s privacy or reposition the patient. The inflated retention balloon is smaller and softer than typical stool in the rectum, so defecation is unlikely to be stimulated and the patient is unlikely to feel the balloon.
