Title: OSTOMY BAG WITH LIQUID-GAS SEPARATION DEVICE
Abstract:
An ostomy bag (71) having a liquid gas separation device includes a separator (79) disposed within a flexible film pouch (71) used as an ostomy bag (71). The separator (79) is made of an absorbent material to collect liquids and separate these components from any gas entering the ostomy bag (71) through the stomal opening (77) thereof. The separator (79) is spaced from a filter (73) incorporated in the ostomy bag (71) to further enhance gas liquid separation. The separator (79) may be disposed in the bag in an attached or unattached configuration. A perforated wall (81) may be included within the flexible film pouch (71) to minimize clogging of the separator (79) by solids so as to improve the gas liquid separation.
