Stoma Bags

There is a range of bag and pouch types for stomas. There are also caps, seals, and patches. So how do you choose what's right for you? Well, start by considering the type of procedure. For colostomy patients who irrigate (flush their system voluntarily when it is convenient), you would likely attach a colostomy bag when you need to, but wouldn't wear one all day. As well, a stoma cap might be convenient during the rest of the day to prevent leaks and irritation from the stoma.

For ileostomies or urostomies, you may find that a cap is ineffective because you wear your bag all day. In these cases, it is vital that you have special night and day bags for varying uses. During the day, gravity will keep the bag from moving around too much. At night, however, you may wear a night bag that is attached to a tube that leads to a night receptacle. This prevents urine or other waste from backing up into your stoma and causing infection.

As well, you will want to consider whether to use a one-piece stoma bag or a two-piece system. Neither is necessarily better than the other, but you should choose according to what you like personally. One-piece systems incorporate a skin barrier, while two-piece ones have a separate skin barrier onto which you attach your disposable bag.
