Comfort Medical provides an extensive selection
What we offer
We provide the latest styles and technological advances in colostomy, ileostomy, and urostomy pouches. The two main types of pouches are closed and drainable pouches. Some pouches include charcoal filters that prevent gas from building up by allowing the gas to escape without any accompanying odor. Some pouches are available in clear or beige options and may have a soft cover panel to minimize the sound of rustling under clothes. These panels will increase comfort while promoting discretion. Drainable pouches are available with either a clamp or integrated self-locking closure system.
Comfort offers a variety of ostomy accessories to ensure the comfort and security of our ostomy patients. Our mission is to help our patients lead happier, healthier lives, so we offer a wide range of accessories to assist in any ostomy routine. These include: barrier rings, paste, stoma powder, barrier strips, skin protective wipes, adhesive remover wipes, lubricating deodorant, belts, etc.
Types of ostomies
A colostomy is a surgically created opening into the colon through the abdomen. Its purpose is to allow the stool to bypass a diseased or damaged part of the colon. The output from a colostomy includes liquid or formed stool (or somewhere in between), gas, and odor.
An ileostomy is a surgically created opening into the small intestine through the abdomen. With an ileostomy, a section of the small intestine and large intestine (colon) have been removed or bypassed. The output from an ileostomy after surgery is generally a steady liquid type of drainage. Over time though the stool will become thicker and more paste-like.
A urostomy is a surgically created opening to drain urine. A urostomy allows urine to flow out of the body after the bladder has been removed or bypassed. The output from a urostomy is urine and possibly some mucus.

An ostomy is a surgically created opening in the body designed to discharge body wastes.
Absolutely not: you will immediately notice that the ostomy acts the same as any other organ.
No, just use disinfecting soap and running water. It is recommended to use paper cloth, scottex material, or a very soft towel that leaves no fibers on the skin. If you use a sponge, it is recommended to replace it frequently; Avoid using gauze, cotton, and wool. Never use products containing alcohol, gasoline, sodium, or hypochlorite solutions, as they irritate the stomach and weaken the natural defenses of the skin
A collection device is a bag that collects the stools, with a central hole sticker attached to the abdomen. It is the solution that allows the stoma to resume full autonomy.
In long journeys, such as intercontinental flights, you may need to make a bag change. In this case, the simplest and most cost-effective solution is to have plastic envelopes where you can store the used device before throwing it in the toilet basket. The bag prevents bad odors from escaping and also allows you to “discreetly” carry it with you. Colored plastic envelopes, such as small beauty cases, can be useful for storing both the grip and the plastic bag. Some people find it embarrassing to throw the bags used in the baskets, so they prefer to do it in the most discrete and anonymous public bins. In this case, a plastic bag with the zip can become the perfect container for you while waiting for your flight to land or a public bin.
– Prepare everything you need before you start.
– Wash your hands.
– Remove the old garrison from top to bottom.
– Wash with lukewarm water and soap, with movements from the outside to the inside, in the case of colo and ileostomy, or from the inside out, in case of urostomy.
– Tumble drying.
– You can stretch a thin layer of protective film around your stomach to the need.
– Cut the plain hole of the right size (must be as close to the ostomy as possible).
– If you use single-sided grip, apply it carefully and carefully adhere to the skin without forming wrinkles and positioning by folding the adhesive in half and matching the hole with the bottom of the stomach. If you use a two-piece system, apply the new plaque, always making sure that there are no wrinkles in the adhesive and then attach the new bag to make sure you have attached it properly to the plaque.
– Waste can be disposed of in undifferentiated collection.
