Finding the right Baseplate

a range of baseplates ;

Keeping your peristomal (around the stoma) skin healthy is important for your health and comfort; however, this skin can become irritated and infected if pouches leak, allowing urine or stool to come into contact with the skin.

A well-fitting baseplate is your best defense against skin complications. Baseplates provide the necessary wall between your skin and stoma output, allowing you to remain secure, comfortable and irritation-free.1

To ensure the best fit between your baseplate and stoma, make sure you monitor changes in your stoma's size and shape. As your stoma changes, you may need to adjust the size of your baseplate and pouching system, or switch to a new system or baseplate. Your stoma care nurse can help you set up a measuring routine and also assist with any necessary size or system changes.

Stomahesive® Baseplates for standard are designed to:

  • Offer Reliable peristomal skin protection.
  • Adhere to try and wet skin.
  • Be comfortable on the skin during wear and gentle to skin upon removable.

Durahesive® Baseplates for extended wear are are designed to:

  • Be highly durable and resistant to liquid output.
  • Designed to "turtleneck," to help prevent leaks and help to provide added skin protection.

Choosing the Right Size

After surgery, your stoma may be swollen. As it heals, your stoma will gradually shrink in size. Because of this change in the weeks following surgery, it is important to regularly measure your stoma to ensure you are wearing the appropriate pouch size.
