ConvaTec 22771 is a temporary and superficial containment device for patients with acute faecal incontinence and the product was designed and implemented after much research into diverting faecal matter safely and efficiently for the purpose of protecting colostomates from faecal contamination or skin breakdown. It is also important to note that it is believed that a typical pouch can last for up to approximately 29 consecutive days owing to the fact that the low pressure device was designed to facilitate insertion and removal. The pouch is also made to reduce the risk of the spread of infection by showing a latex-free design.
It is to be remembered that ConvaTec is a leading developer of medical technologies focusing on four distinct areas including Ostomy Care, Continence Care, Wound Therapeutics and Infusion Devices. ConvaTec products, particularly the ConvaTec 22771 devices are used worldwide by health-care professionals.
