Ostomy pouching systems are a set of two parts that include a skin barrier and a collection pouch. The pouch is neatly attached to the abdomen by the skin barrier and fitted over and around the stoma to collect the expelled waste. The barrier protects the stoma from the waste output and is neutral to the skin. These pouching systems are very important for the perfect functioning of an ostomy and hence ostomates require the right kind of pouching system to make sure that they ostomy remains healthy and functioning.
Pouching systems are commonly used for three types of ostomies, namely, ileostomy, colostomy, and urostomy.
There are two types of pouching systems for Ileostomies and Colostomies:

In some colostomies there might be an event of irrigation, using a procedure analogous to an enema. This is carried out to clean the stool directly out of the colon through the stoma. It requires a special irrigation system, consisting of an irrigation bag with a connecting tube (or catheter), a stoma cone and an irrigation sleeve. A special lubricant is sometimes used on the stoma in preparation for irrigation. After the irrigation, some colostomates can use a stoma cap, a one- or two-piece system which simply covers and protects the stoma. This procedure is usually done to avoid the need to wear a pouch.
Depending on the frequency of the output one can choose between two different pouch options.
