Description of the ConvaTec Flexi-Seal FMS Advanced Odor Control
Introducing New Flexi-Seal® FMS Advanced Odor Control Flexi-Seal® FMS Advanced Odor Control creates a more pleasant environment for patients & clinicians Designed to safely: Manage Odor. Reduce the risk of skin breakdown. Reduce the risk of spread of infection. Improve patient care. Fecal odor can be an issue for patients and caregivers. Fecal odor is due to volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Fecal VOCs include indole and sulfur compounds (e.g., Dimethyl trisulfide). Odor level can vary considerably from patient to patient based on: •Medical conditions (e.g., infections such as C. difficile). •Diet. •Increased concentration of fecal VOCs.
These conditions contribute to increased fecal odor, which can permeate through silicone and parylene-coated, silicone catheters. New Flexi-Seal® FMS Advanced Odor Control manages odor in two ways: New nylon inner odor barrier that HOLDS the odor molecules within the silicone catheter.
New collection bag has a charcoal filter to deodorize gas as it is released.
The fecal catheter with proven odor management. Revolutionary catheter technology. Flexi-Seal® FMS Advanced Odor Control successfully eliminates catheter odor permeation to levels below those that are humanly detectable. •In-vitro results demonstrated undetectable levels of indole and sulfur compounds (e.g., Dimethyl trisulfide). State of-the-art pouch Specialized charcoal filter keeps air flowing, providing: •Exceptional deodorization •Reduction of ballooning
The ConvaTec pouch prevents odor transmission. •Collection bags made of PVC are inferior at blocking gas transmission. Demonstrated clinical safety The soft low pressure balloon is designed to reduce the risk of tissue necrosis and conform to sphincter anatomy. In a clinical study, rectal mucosa was healthy after Flexi-Seal® FMS use for patients who had baseline and follow-up endoscopy. 92% patients had their skin condition maintained or improved. 83% of caregivers reported that Flexi-Seal® FMS improved fecal incontinence control, was efficacious, and time efficient.
