What the Flexima 3S 2 Piece Colostomy Bags Offer – Free EOPYY Samples

two piece colostomy bags Flexima 3S

The two-piece colostomy bag is essentially two separate pieces. It consists of the base plate and the pouch where they are connected to a coupling system.

Pros & Cons of two-piece colostomy bags

At first glance, two-piece colostomy bags are generally considered more comfortable and cause less skin irritation as the base plate stays in place for many days (usually 2 – 4 days) since the bag is changed separately. But let’s work more on what a two-piece colostomy system offers and what is considered a drawback.

  • Better visibility when measuring and cutting the base plate to fit perfectly around the stoma minimizing the possibility of leaks
  • The pouch can be replaced at any time without changing the wafer, minimizing the possibility of skin irritation
  • Allows you to switch between different bags for flexibility. For example, you can wear a high-capacity colostomy bag at night and a smaller one during the day.
  • You can adjust the hanging angle or in other words rotate the bag whenever you want
  • If you prefer the sealed bags, then change filled with a new, is a breeze
  • If gases have accumulated in the bag then you can easily remove them (burping)
  • You can "dress" the bag
  • The coupling system of some products is designed in such a way as to protect the stoma
  • Extremely useful in the case of irrigation
  • Usually more visible than a one-piece colostomy bag
  • The bag may separate from the base plate causing leakage. That is why the coupling system plays a crucial role in avoiding such situations.
  • Some people are bothered by mechanical coupling systems
  • Two-piece colostomy bags are usually more expensive than one-piece bags
  • Because you wear the base plate for several days you may not immediately realize the creation of an irritation
  • They are usually not recommended in the case of a hernia

Although the scale is skewed on advantages, as in the case of one-piece colostomy bags, many of the above are subjective. The choice of a system of two colostomy pieces depends on the individual preferences and needs. Sensitive skin is usually the number one reason for a two-piece bag while it is the best solution if there is a big output filling the bag very quickly.

Before making a choice, it is important to check all the possibilities at your disposal. After all there is no need to buy a two-piece system having doubts since you can try it first.

    The series of two-piece colostomy systems Flexima 3S by B. Braun

    B. Braun has starred in recent decades in the manufacture and development of innovative medical products and two-piece colostomy bags are one of them.

    The base plates and colostomy pouches of the Flexima 3S series were developed and named so because they focus on the three S that are vital for people with colostomy.

    • Simple
      Simplicity and convenience in every step, from the placement of the flange, the coupling system and the cleaning. Everything is designed in such a way that you don't need any training for the perfect application from the very first time. The innovative coupling system allows the bag to be placed in three different ways depending on your body type.
    • Soft
      It exerts minimal pressure on the abdomen during application and achieves the maximum feeling of comfort, discretion and flexibility offered by a two-piece ostomy system thanks to the new generation of plastic material it uses which takes the shape of the body.
    • Secure
      No leaks thanks to the "inseparable" mechanical coupling system. Absolute sense of security after hearing the "click" when the base and the bag are locked together. If you use ostomy belt for greater stability then you will find three mounting hooks on each bag.

    Pouches

    B. Braun Flexima 3S colostomy pouches are available in three sizes, mini, midi and maxi, offering flexibility for every indour and outdoor activity.

    In the case of a colostomy, closed disposable ostomy bags are preferred, which are discarded as soon as they are full. Depending on your output and daily needs, there is also the right bag for you. Of course, the 3S base plates are perfectly compatible with 3S drainable bags but they are more suitable for ileostomy and urostomy.

    Flexima 3S: The ultimate 2-piece colostomy system

    Although many are reluctant to change their ostomy materials, especially if you are accustomed to a one-piece system, the flexibility and comfort of two-piece systems are unrivaled.

    But none of the above reviews mean that one-piece colostomy systems aren’t good. All people just prefer one or the other and for very different reasons. Personally, I believe that the bad experiences are mainly due to low quality products.
