Market research shows there has been an increased use in convex products. This webinar will discuss the what and when of choosing convex product choices to improve patient care. It will also discuss potential risks and contraindications for using convexity.
This ConvaTec sponsored webinar provides a historical perspective on the use of convexity in the management of a patient with a stoma. To understand where we are now with product choices, it is important to step back and review the evolution of various shapes of convex pouching systems. We will examine types of convexities including degrees of convex products, location of the convexity and stability (hard soft light rigid) of convexity. Case studies will illustrate the use of convex products in management of the patient with a stoma.
