Drainable ostomy bags

Drainable ostomy bags had an opening at one end to empty the ostomy pouch. The opening is then closed tightly with a clamp to keeps the output securely within the bag.

Closed ostomy bags

Closed ostomy bags cannot be emptied out. It has to be disposed when full. If you lead an active lifestyle then a closed pouch is more convenient because there are fewer risks of leaks and odor and you do not have to worry about drainage.


Ostomy Pouchs are available in three forms – 

Opaque is for users who want discretion and do not wish to view the pouch content. Transparent is more for those who want to monitor the output. Those who like to go swimming should use a closed pouch with an integrated filter which neutralizes odor and avoids ballooning of the pouch. The filter allows the odor to pass out without letting fluid escape from or enter the pouch.
