I know more than most what its like at times when you have watery output, when you have an ileostomy you can have periods of higher and watery output and having a solidifying agent you can pop into your pouch and it thickens your output making it easier to employ the contents. Ostomarts OstoSORB dissolves excess output and helps neutralise and eliminate odour whilst solidifying the output.
OstoSORB neutralises pouch odour, absorbs excess fluid, dissolves completely in the pouch and is safe and easy to use. OstoSORB contains a highly effective odour neutraliser to help eliminate odours inside the pouch. OstoSORB will simply dissolve over time to absorb the extra fluid of pouch contents and then flush away unnoticed. OstoSORB is suitable for any ileostomy or colostomy where the output is fluid, and will help manage noise and embarrasing leaks.
Product – OstoMart OstoSorb
Packaging – The OstoSORB comes in a small round container which is resealable and contains 30 x3ml sachets which are small handy sized clear packets with a good amount of product packed into the packet. The other benefit is the packets of the OstoSORB are pretty resilient and if its tucked into a pockets it’s not going to explode everywhere and the tub is pretty self explanatory which is clean and discreet. No frills!
Ease of use – OstoSorb is incredibly easy to use, you simply pop it into your pouch before you apply it or after you have emptied. Its great because all you need to do is pop the whole sachet in rather then being all fingers and thumbs trying to empty the contents. Once it is in the pouch it takes minutes to activate on contact to the smallest amount of output and I found that using just one did the job. The OstoSORB sachet absorbs a lot of the water content in the output and creates a paste like consistency which helps prevent any leakages.
When it came to empty the pouch I found it was excellent as a solidifier but this does mean you need to work it out a little bit – also be mindful of splash back as the consistency is now thicker to normal.
I noticed an added benefit of odour control, it seemed to help eliminate it and the only thing it didn’t help with was gas, however if I was honest I didn’t expect it too.
