Different Types of Ostomy Bags


There are different types of ostomy bags to choose from as one colostomy bag doesn't fit all. First of all, a colostomy bag system consists of a flange, wafer that attaches to the skin around the stoma, and a pouch that is used to collect the stool and urine.


Generally, the pouch comes into two basic types, one-piece and two-piece stoma bags. One-piece stoma bags are fixed around the stoma with the help of adhesive flange. If people would like to change for a new one, they can remove the whole stoma bag and apply a new one in its place. One-piece bags are more preferred by people who participate in sports or wear tight-fitting clothes as they are more discreet. Although one-piece ostomy bag may lead to skin irritation in some people due to the frequent appliance changes, among nearly all types of ostomy bags, it is relatively cheaper.


Two-piece bags have an adhesive flange or baseplate that is attached around the stoma, and the pouch of the two-piece one is attached to the flange separately. People do not need to remove the adhesive flange when they change a new pouch. The flange is usually changed every two or three days.


Other types of ostomy bags include closed bags for firm stools, drainable bags for liquid stools, and mini bags for using a short amount of time. Some people may prefer a larger bag during night time as it has a bigger capacity and helps to avoid leakage. The type that a person selects is largely up to them and they need to choose the style and size that best fits their needs based on their type of colostomies, lifestyles, daily activities, personal preferences, and skin conditions.


Applications and Advantages of of Different Types of Ostomy Bags

A colostomy bag is a plastic bag that is mainly used for people whose parts of the colon have been taken out because of some conditions or diseases. The colostomy bags are specially designed to collect fecal matter from the digestive tract through an opening in the abdominal wall called a stoma. The ostomy bags are essential for those who suffer from conditions like bowel injuries or obstructions, ulcerative colitis, and abdominal/pelvic cancers. Yet, the ostomy bags can be easily hidden under clothing so users do not have to worry about embarrassment.

Precautions of Different Types of Ostomy Bags
