The Secco Faecal Management System consists of a silicone catheter tube with inflation cuff and irrigation port, 1500ml collection bag containing a superabsorbent pad, mounting plate with attachment strap and 45ml syringe. The catheter tube is constructed of silicone material. The low pressure retention cuff, once inflated, retains the device in the rectum. Faecal material is diverted into the silicone drainage tube, which provides a route for the faecal matter to pass into the collection bag. The collection bag contains a superabsorbent pad which absorbs liquid faeces creating a semi-solid gel for greater ease of transport and disposal.
Along the drainage tube are two lumens with individual access ports. The white inflation port is used to inflate and deflate the retention cuff, and the blue irrigation port is used to add water to flush and irrigate the catheter tube.
Secco FMS is a closed catheter system for the management of episodic faecal incontinence of liquid and semi-liquid faeces.
10cm longer than previous version - easier positioning of patient/collection bag
4-way odour control capability - helping maintain more pleasant ward environment
Super-thin catheter walls - greater comfort, less risk of tissue damage
Bigger collection bag - 50% fewer replacement bags required
Enhanced infection control features - helping safeguard staff and visitors
Reports of less leakage and less unpleasant smell - protecting patient dignity
Potentially large cash-releasing savings
The cost of a longer stay in hospital due to C. difficile associated disease is estimated to be £4,000 per case.
Patients with faecal incontinence are three times more likely to develop pressure ulcers than those who are continent.
Faecal incontinence is a distressing problem for the patient and a priority for healthcare professionals who need to balance maintaining patient dignity, risk of cross infection and prevention of skin damage.
Attach the collection bag to the Secco catheter like so–pull open the blue lid of the bag and hook the hooks on the connector mounting plate into the two corresponding eyelets either side of the bag entrance at the top of the bag. Then starting at the top ,snap the open bag entrance coupling onto the white connector at the top of the catheter mounting plate . Press down all around the connection between the two to make sure it is secure and fully connected.
Attach the strap onto the lower bed frame at a position lower than the patient will be lying to ensure waste flows downwards with gravity. Make sure it is attached without twisting or kinking the catheter. Note the silicone tube at the joint to the mounting plate may be slowly and carefully rotated to remove any twists in the tube after patient has finally been settled.
Insert the cuff into the anus until the cuff is inside the rectal vault. If it is far enough inside the patient, the black line on the catheter should just be visible outside the patients body.
