According to Leblanc, Whiteley, et al, (JWOCN April 2019):
- 36.7% of ostomy patients experienced peristomal skin complications during the first 90 days following ostomy surgery.
- 80%+ of patients experienced some type of stomal or peristomal complications within 2 years of undergoing ostomy surgery.
- Healthcare costs were approximately $80,000 higher in patients with PSC than patients without.
The StomaGenie Capture Cartridge is designed to fit over an exposed stoma to capture and contain uncontrolled effluent during a pouch change. This allows the ostomate, caregiver, changing partner or healthcare professional uninterrupted time to clean, treat and dry peristomal skin prior to new pouching system.
Incorporating a StomaGenie into a pouch change routine allows for a hygiene-friendly experience without the stress and anxiety typically associated due to the uncertainty of stoma activity. This results in restored confidence, independence, and dignity to those living with an ostomy because the uncontrolled stoma is finally under control.
We look forward to introducing you to our products and the many benefits they offer the ostomy community!
