Why use a Barrier Ring?
A barrier ring is used in ostomy care to create a secure and comfortable seal around the stoma, filling in gaps and irregularities between the stoma and the ostomy skin barrier or wafer. It prevents leaks, directs stoma output into the ostomy pouch, and reduces the risk of skin irritation and breakdown by maintaining a drier environment. The barrier ring's adaptability to stoma shape ensures a proper fit for varying stoma sizes, leading to extended wear time of the ostomy appliance and protection of the peristomal skin. Overall, the barrier ring is an essential tool in ostomy management, providing individuals with an ostomy the comfort, security, and skin protection necessary for a better quality of life.
