BETHLEHEM, PA – April 2, 2018 — B. Braun Medical Inc. offers a line of ostomy products to patients and healthcare facilities that includes the Flow Collector as part of the B. Braun High Output System. The Flow Collector is designed to easily and securely connect to B. Braun’s Flexima® High Output Pouches.
With a 2-liter collection bag and 5-foot-long discreet white tube (cuttable every 12 inches to adjust length), the Flow Collector is designed for high capacity body output. The bag offers a ¾-inch wide opening for draining and cleaning. The integration of the pouches, tubing and collection bag facilitates ready use. The large capacity bag is designed to give patients more autonomy since it does not have to be emptied as often as smaller bags.
“The Flow Collector is ideal for overnight collection, helping to reduce nursing time when a patient is in the hospital and helping to give patients more autonomy at home,” said Jeff Straton, Vice President, Market OPM, Chronic Care & Business Development for
B. Braun. “B. Braun Melsungen AG has more than 40 years of experience with ostomy products, and B. Braun Medical is proud to offer an extended line of these products to the North American market.”
The Flow Collector allows for discreet examination and collection of output thanks to its opaque vinyl, which is not made with natural rubber latex, DEHP or PVC. In addition, the Flow Collector tubing can be closed with the Flexima High Output Pouch cap when the nurse or patient needs to disconnect from the pouch for a short period of time. The tubing is designed to be kink and crack resistant, while also being squeezable to assist with blockage removal. There are two eyelet holes at the top of the bag for hanging.
