Ostemy Supplies


WHAT IS AN OSTOMY?
An ostomy is an opening in the abdomen created during surgery to discharge body wastes. The new ostomy opening is called a stoma, which is a bypass route for excretion. There are three ostomy types:

  • Colostomy-opening in the large bowel
  • Ileostomy-opening in the small bowel
  • Urostomy-bypass of the urinary tract

Ostomies may be permanent or temporary.

Ostemy Supplies

WHAT TYPES OF OSTOMY PRODUCTS DO WE CARRY?
We carry one-piece and two-piece pouching systems. Both systems include a skin barrier and a collection pouch. The pouch attaches to the abdomen by the skin barrier and is fitted over and around the stoma to collect bodily waste.

  • Colostomy and Ileostomy pouches
    • Can be either open-ended or closed. Open ended pouches require a clamp and can be drained and reused. Closed ended pouches are sealed at the bottom and are discarded after each use
  • Two-piece systems        
    • The barrier is detachable from the pouch. When changing pouches, the barrier stays attached to the skin by way of a flange unit. The pouch can be removed from the flange and a new pouch can be attached
  • One-piece systems
    • Consists of a skin barrier and pouch jointed together as a single unit.  Provides greater simplicity but requires changing the entire unit, including the skin barrier

Both two-piece and one-piece pouches can be either drainable or closed.

WHAT TYPES OF OSTOMY ACCESSORIES ARE AVAILABLE?
We carry a wide variety of accessories to help with the day to day management of an ostomy

  • Ostomy belts-wrap around the abdomen to help support the pouch. Good alternative to those who      can’t use adhesives
  • Pouch covers-cotton based cover that fits over the pouch to help protect the pouch
  • Skin barrier-liquid, wipe or powder that help protect the skin around the stoma from irritation
  • Paste-used to fill in any holes between the stoma and the barrier to help create a better seal
  • Tapes-used to help support the ostomy system. Good for waterproofing
  • Adhesive remover-helpful in cleaning the adhesive that might stick to the skin

Alternatively most extended health care plans will also cover ostomy supplies. We can provide an official receipt for you to submit to your plan for reimbursement. Please call us for more details if you have any coverage questions.
