Hollister New Image Flat Flextend Cut-To-Fit Skin Barrier With Tape Border is an integral part of an ostomy system, serving the purpose of creating a protective barrier between the stoma (the surgically made abdominal opening) and the adhesive pouching system. The New Image Flextend Skin Barrier is adaptable in terms of size, as it can be cut to match the specific dimensions of the stoma, ensuring a snug and personalized fit. Utilizing Flextend technology, this Hollister skin barrier extends the wear time and improves durability. This, in turn, safeguards the skin surrounding the stoma against irritation and breakdown, guaranteeing a comfortable and dependable fit for extended periods.

How to Use Hollister New Image Ostomy Skin Barrier?

How to Prepare Skin before Skin Barrier?

  • The skin should be cleaned and thoroughly dried.
  • If a skin cleanser or soap is used, it must be a kind that rinses completely from the skin without leaving a residue.
  • Lotions, oils, and powders may interfere with the adhesion of a skin barrier.
  • Skin barriers adhere best to dry surfaces. If the skin is eroded, use a skin barrier powder (for example, Premium Powder). The powder should be applied to the moist areas, and then excess powder must be removed. The powder will absorb the moisture. In some cases, a second application of powder may be needed. Some clinicians will use a skin sealant (for example, a Skin Gel wipe) to “seal in” the powder. This is a clinical preference but is not required.
  • The use of a skin sealant (Skin Gel wipe) interferes with the adherence of Flextend extended wear skin barrier and will decrease the wear time.
  • If the stoma is active, use something dry, such as a rolled piece of gauze, on the stoma to control the output when the skin barrier is being applied.

How to apply New Image Cut-to-Fit Ostomy Skin Barrier?

  • Remove release paper or film prior to application of the skin barrier.
  • Minimize the amount of touching or contact with the barrier prior to application.
  • Once applied to the skin, the barrier adhesion will improve with heat. Enhance the adherence of the skin barrier by using a hand or fingers to hold the skin barrier in contact with the skin for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • The flexibility of the barrier can be improved by warming prior to application. One way this can be accomplished is by holding the barrier in hands prior to the removal of the release paper or film. Do not microwave skin barriers.

What is wear time?

  • Wear time is defined as the length of time a product can be worn before failure.
  • Failure is usually the result of barrier erosion or separation of the barrier from the skin.
  • Wear time can vary widely based on factors such as skin condition, discharge consistency, activity, and climate.
  • The goal is to provide predictable and consistent wear time.
