Abstract [en]

A considerable proportion of stoma patients are disabled for various reasons and are elderly. To be able to dress their stoma themselves is of crucial importance for their integrity and social life. This study evaluates a novel stomal dressing system based on a magnetic connector-the Easy-X system. Twenty patients (8 women, mean age of 40-89 years) with a well-functioning colostomy tested the Easy-X system for 6 weeks. The system was judged by the patients using a multiple choice scale, and by the stoma nurses using a 10-grade VAS. Eighteen of 20 patients completed the trial. Ten patients rated the Easy-X as better than their ordinary system, 3 as equal to and 4 deemed it inferior. Despite this, only three were prepared to change to the Easy-X system. Eleven of 18 patients experienced discomfort with the new adhesive plate. Three patients suffered leakage less often and five patients more often than with their ordinary system. Stoma nurse ratings were available for 14 patients. Their evaluation of the magnetic connector in the Easy-X system was positive in eight cases, neutral in one case and negative in three cases. Global impression ratings were 3 positive, 3 negative and 5 neutral. The Easy-X system showed potential advantages over conventional stomal dressing systems, but the system must be improved in terms of a varied assortment of dressing products enabling individual fitting before a larger trial can be carried out on disabled patients. Furthermore, the increased use of metal has to be handled with an ecologic recycling system. A new stomal dressing system with a magnetic connector has potential advantages over conventional stomal dressings for disabled persons.
