Today we continue our look into ostomy items with the Hollister Premier Drainable Cut-To-Fit Transparent Pouch, with the item number 8331. Please note that this pouch is transparent. Additionally, you may see the words “cut-to-fit” shortened to CTF.
This is a one-piece system: the pouch and the flange. The type of adhesive used is a Flextend adhesive. This type of adhesive protects the skin over extended wearing time from irritating discharge.
Many of the features that make this pouch easy to use and easy to close are similar to the features of the two-piece pouch system by Hollister. To empty this one-piece pouch, lightly pinch the sides of the leak-proof outlet for easy control of content flow. When you stop pinching, there are firm reinforcing strips that shut. Then, you can simply wipe the tail of the pouch closed with some bath tissue, and begin to seal the pouch. To do so, roll it three times in the same direction and press from the middle out. You should be able to feel the seal close up your pouch.
This pouch provides the highest level of discreetness and comfort provided by odor-barrier, rustle-free film and ComfortWear Panels. There is also an integrated filter.
When cutting the flange for proper sizing, this item can be used for stomas up to 2 ½ inches.
