Reviews of doctors about diapers for adults
Specialist in social assistance for the elderly, Professor Svetlana Gorelik notes that adult diapers make the work of those who care for a bedridden patient much easier, and most importantly, for the patient himself, who is forced to stay in bed for a long time. But this does not mean at all that a person should constantly be in a diaper, as in underwear.
- Diapers are indicated for certain human conditions. For example, in acute cerebrovascular accident, when the patient has signs of urinary incontinence. With injuries or diseases of the spine, when a person has dysfunction of the pelvic organs, with injuries that caused damage to the spinal cord. Or elderly people who cannot take care of themselves, Svetlana Gorelik clarifies.
If an elderly person is on prolonged bed rest and has mild urinary incontinence, but the act of urination is preserved (that is, he can control the functioning of the bladder), doctors advise not to use diapers during the day, as they only increase the signs of urinary incontinence. But at night, diapers make life easier for both the patient and the person who cares for him.
Diapers can also be used by people who have urinary or fecal incontinence. It happens more often in women. And if such a woman goes to the cinema or to work, then of course, doctors advise using not just a diaper, but diaper pants.
In the postoperative period, adult diapers are rarely used. Not all people, especially young people, can overcome the psychological barrier. Therefore, it is often better to give a person a “duck” than to wait for him to empty his bladder or intestines into a diaper. In addition, there are various devices for caring for bedridden patients — vessels that absorb diapers and sheets.one.
In addition, when using diapers, careful hygiene must be ensured in order to avoid unpleasant consequences. Yes, adult diapers, for all their convenience, have their downsides.
The first is contact dermatitis. Yes, and allergic reactions to the materials from which diapers are made can be very serious. The second is atopic dermatitis. This is skin irritation with urine or feces if diapers are not changed in a timely manner, or hygiene treatment before and after removal of the diaper was not thorough enough. And the third unpleasant moment that can be associated with prolonged use of an adult diaper is bedsores.
