Ostomy is a complex procedure. It requires time to get used to the new system of discharging body waste into an ostomy pouch. Selection of an ostomy pouch can be tricky for various reasons like the consistency of the output, stoma size, skin type, peristomal skin condition, etc. The pouches are available as one-piece or two with closed or open ends.
A one-piece pouch is a single unit with a skin barrier and a pouch combined, eliminating the need to purchase a skin barrier and pouch separately. A two-piece pouch does not have a skin barrier attached, making it necessary to purchase a skin barrier separately.
A closed-end pouch does not allow the user to empty the contents and reuse the pouch. The ostomate will have to dispose of the pouch and apply a new one. A pouch with an open end allows it to be drained and reused. These are the top 8 ostomy pouches at HPFY:
