Title
(EN) OSTOMY BAG CLEANING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE NETTOYAGE D'UN SAC DE COLLECTE DE SELLES
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention comprises a novel apparatus for the cleaning of an ostomy bag (10) being worn by an ostomy patient (P). The cleaning apparatus of the invention is configured in three embodiments capable of fixed installation, portable use and bedside use, respectively. The apparatus of the fixed and portable embodiments provides a support for a patient (P) at a sufficient height above a toilet bowl (20) in the form of a platform (30) having support bars (32) with security stops (36) and a chute (34) removably hung from said platform (30) to discharge excreta into the bowl. The fixed embodiment employs a hose (50) for attachment to house water supply (24) and a nozzle (54) adapted to clean within the ostomy bag (10). The portable embodiment employs a reservoir (70) which supplies pressurized water either by elevation or by use of a portable pump. The convalescent embodiment is adapted to be used at the bedside and has a fluid reservoir/portable pump (82/84), hose (94) and a collecting tank (80), such as a bedpan mounted to receive the excreta being cleaned from the ostomy bag.

La présente invention comprend un nouvel appareil de nettoyage d'un sac de collecte de selles (10), porté par un patient ayant subi une stomie (P). Selon l'invention, l'appareil de nettoyage est présenté dans trois modes de réalisation: appareil fixe, appareil portable et appareil de chevet. L'appareil fixe et l'appareil portable comprennent une plateforme (30) destinée à soutenir le patient (P) située à une hauteur suffisante au-dessus d'une cuvette de WC (20). Ladite plateforme (30) comprend des barres de support (32) dotées de butées de sécurité (36) et d'une goulotte (34) suspendue de manière amovible à ladite plateforme (30) et destinée à évacuer les excreta dans la cuvette. L'appareil fixe présente un flexible (50) le reliant à l'alimentation en eau domestique (24) ainsi qu'une buse (54) adaptée pour nettoyer l'intérieur du sac (10). L'appareil portable comprend un réservoir (70) fournissant de l'eau sous pression soit par gravité, soit par une pompe portative. L'appareil de chevet comporte un réservoir de liquide (82) ou une pompe portative (84), un flexible (94) ainsi qu'un récipient collecteur (80), tel qu'un haricot monté de manière à recevoir les excreta évacués du sac lors de l'opération de nettoyage.
