Adapt Flat Barrier Rings
Barrier rings are designed to protect the peristomal skin. The barrier ring will help fill in uneven skin surfaces to enhance the fit of the skin barrier and help prevent leakage of stoma output under the skin barrier.
These barrier rings are flexible in design, meaning you can cut, stretch, or stack them together to help improve the fit of a pouching system. They can be applied to the adhesive side of the skin barrier or directly to clean dry peristomal skin. They are available in different sizes and different thicknesses.
Please be sure to check out the newest product addition to the Adapt barrier ring family – The caring Barrier Ring.
Hollister also offers a convex barrier ring accessory. Convex barrier rings help to provide a gentle convexity to a skin barrier, which can improve the fit of the barrier, minimize leakage, and protect the peristomal skin.
The Adapt convex barrier ring comes in a variety of sizes and two different shapes – round and oval – to accommodate many different shape stomas. The convex barrier rings should be applied to dry peristomal skin convex side down or to the adhesive side of the skin barrier flat side down.
One problem many people living with an ileostomy or colostomy experience is pancaking. This term describes stool stuck at the top of a pouching system around the stoma. Because the contents can’t drop to the bottom of the pouch, it attaches to the top and may cause leakage issues or interfere with the function of the integrated ostomy pouch filter.
A lubricating deodorant makes pouch emptying easier and can help prevent stool from sticking to the pouch. It lubricates the inside of the ostomy pouch and helps the stool to flow to the bottom of the pouch. This product also helps to minimize odor upon emptying and with pouch change.
The Adapt lubricating deodorant is colorless, odorless, and available in bottle or packet form. You can use it with each pouch change and after the pouch is emptied to neutralize odor and help stop the output from sticking.
Living with an ostomy means having to wear an ostomy skin barrier for prolonged periods and removing them from the skin with pouch changes. This may result in irritated or sore skin.
Adapt no sting skin protective wipes provide a protective film on the skin and acts as a protective interface between the skin and the ostomy skin barrier, helping to protect the skin when in contact with effluent and when removing adhesive products.
Apply the protective skin wipe to intact skin and allow to completely dry before applying the ostomy skin barrier. It is not recommended, however, for use with extended wear skin barriers, as this may decrease wear time.
