Barrier rings are designed to protect the skin around the stoma. Additionally, they help fill in uneven skin surfaces to improve the fit of the skin barrier and prevent leakage of stoma output under the skin wafer. They are circular in shape with a round hole cut in the center. The barrier disc goes around the stoma and creates a secure seal at the base of the stoma. Ostomy barrier rings are highly absorbent, guarding against moisture, including liquid and semiliquid output. They are stretchable and conformable with a strong tack. They are available in different sizes.
The most common complaints ostomates have is peristomal skin problems and leaks. Skin barrier rings help with both of those issues. Ostomy bags and skin barriers adhere well to flat and smooth skin, but peristomal skin may be creased, wrinkly, or uneven. Whether you are using a one-piece or two-piece pouching system, a barrier disc will help fill the crevices for a better fit between the skin and the skin barrier. The barrier ring is soft and can be easily molded around the stoma, so no output comes in contact with the skin. This means less irritated peristomal skin and probably longer wear time for your ostomy pouch.
