Great video! I just wanted to add another short term use for red rubber catheters that I do on a semi-regular basis is fecal collection for intestinal parasite exams on those patients with exceedingly loose stool where a fecal loop is of no value. You can use a red rubber and insert like you would an enema, and gently draw up fecal material/liquid using a 6 or 12ml syringe.
