Brava Skin Barrier Protective Sheets, manufactured by, Coloplast provide a flexible and secure skin barrier around stomas.
Patients with an ostomy typically utilize pouch systems. Ostomy pouch systems involve attaching a barrier or flange to the skin so that a pouch can be connected. One piece ostomy pouches can also be used which have the barrier permanently attached to the pouch. Barriers or flanges need to adhere to the skin in order to develop an effective seal for the ostomy system to function efficiently.
This product helps to minimize the risk of maceration. Maceration is the condition where the skin becomes mushy and wet in appearance. The skin breaks down and left untreated can advance to more problematic skin conditions such as infection. A great way to minimize this condition is to keep the stoma and surrounding area clean and dry. This product is easy to apply and can offer effective protection.
