Hy-Tape Peristomal Skin Management wp cover new
 

As stomas become increasingly prevalent, it is critical that health care professionals understand the importance of skin care best practices to prevent peristomal skin complications. These complications, which include dermatitis, infection, trauma, and pressure injury, can have a significant impact on both quality of life and health care costs.

Effective peristomal skin management using current best practices is essential. One key component of this care is using a medical adhesive that protects fragile skin, supports longer wear times, is moisture resistant, and can be removed without damaging the skin.

This white paper provides useful, up-to-date information on peristomal skin management and prevention of complications for health care and wound care professionals whose patients have undergone ostomy surgery.

The following topics are covered in this white paper:

Peristomal skin complications including dermatitis, infection and trauma
Quality of life issues for patients
Cost of complications associated with peristomal skin management
Peristomal skin management strategies
The role of effective medical adhesives in preventing peristomal skin complications

This paper is written for wound care clinicians and purchasing directors with an interest in product solutions. This paper was developed by an independent third party.
