More Information

  • Purpose:
    - Skin barriers protect the skin from contact with stoma drainage which helps prevent skin irritation and pain
    - Skin barriers are used to adhere an ostomy pouching system to the skin
  • Skin Preparation Prior to Using a Skin Barrier:
    - 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, 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
  • Application:
    - 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 flexibilty of the barrier can be improved by warming prior to application. One way this can be accomplished is by holding the barrier in your hands prior to the removal of the release paper or film. Do not microwave skin barriersWear time
  • 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 upon factors such as skin condition, discharge consistency, activity, and -climate
    The goal is to provide predictable and consistent wear time.
