Schmitz, K. et al (2007) A study of a new drainable bag for people with ileostomies. Nursing Times; 103: 9, 32-33.
This randomised, comparative crossover study compared the performance of a new one-piece drainable ostomy bag (SenSura) with that of a well-established bag to identify whether problems related to the use of ostomy bags improved. Sixty-four people with an ileostomy tested each bag for a week. SenSura was preferred by 79% of the participants and was superior to the control bag with regard to the key performance parameters. Individuals with an ileostomy preferred the SenSura. This is a summary: the full paper and reference list can be accessed at nursingtimes.net.
