The ostomies are named in relation to the affected organ and indicate an artificial opening created surgically in one of these organs (digestive, urinary, or respiratory).
In the digestive system
There are two types of ostomies, they can be either temporary or definitive.
- An ileostomy (the small intestine): the stools are liquid to pasty, relatively abundant and the excrements are aggressive. Affected individuals use a salvageable pocket or bag because the amount of stool collected is relatively high and the bag has to be emptied several times a day.
- A colostomy (the colon): The maintenance of a colostomy is relatively simple because the bag does not collect stool continuously. Stool is collected intermittently. People affected by this type of ostomy use a closed system, the bag should not be emptied, but discarded with its contents and replaced with a new bag.
In the urinary system
This is a urostomy, there are 3 types of urostomy (TUUC – transureteroureteral ostomy, Bricker ileal conduit and the Mainz pouch).
All urostomies are definitive, regardless of the type.
The urostomies are equipped with a special evacuation system and the bag must be emptied often. They are also equipped with a non-return system so that the urine does not flow back to the ostomy. The anti-return system prevents urinary tract infections.
In the respiratory system
it is a tracheostomy. The latter is a surgical procedure that involves making an opening (stoma) in the trachea; and a cannula is inserted into the stoma to allow air to reach the lungs.
The care of these different ostomies requires the use of specialized equipment. Our nurses are up to date on new stoma care products. They use the best clinical practices in ostomy care and will be able to offer you personalized, quality care in the comfort of your home.
