The odor is controlled by the use of a exclusive Hollister odor-barrier film that is transparent, strong, and lightweight. Because of the transparent pouch film it will allow any caregiver to visualize the contents of the devise without having to disturb the patient. Urine is safely conducted through the convenience drain that is easy to open and fits to drainage bags. The drain valve allows the user to empty the leg bag without getting their fingers wet.
Directions for Penis Pouch Application
The patient should be in the supine position. Wash the genital area with a mild soap and water. Trim the pubic hair. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not use oils, lotions or powders as they will interfere with the adhesion of the barrier.
Be sure the drain cap is placed on the pouch drain. If necessary, cut an opening in the skin barrier slightly larger than the penis. DO NOT cut beyond the line indicated on the backing paper.
- Remove the protective release paper from the skin barrier.
- Place the penis in the opening of the pouch and press the barrier securely on the skin. Avoid wrinkling which can create channels for leakage.
Gently hold the barrier material against the skin for 60 seconds so that the patients body heat will soften the barrier material and enhance its adhesive properties.
- Remove the drain cap at the bottom of the pouch and attach the tubing from a bedside receptacle, or leg bag. For short periods of time, the pouch may be disconnected from the collector. Be sure to replace the pouch drain cap.
A bit pricey, so we only got one to try out. This was our last resort, as we didn’t want to go internally with the Foley. Stayed on all night, and all involved got some sleep – finally!
