Two-piece Ostomy Bags allow you to change the ostomy bag without having to remove the base place or skin barrier. For those who have to change their ostomy bag often, a 2-piece ostomy bag is more practical and less intrusive to the skin. Two Piece Ostomy Systems consist of a skin barrier (also called a flange, wafer or base plate) which attaches to the stoma and snaps together with the ostomy bag through a plastic flange. The skin barrier protects the skin and funnels waste to the ostomy bag that collects and stores the waste. A two piece ostomy bag can be used for an ileostomy, urostomy and colostomy care. A two-piece system requires you to purchase an ostomy bag and skin barrier separately. Both systems, a two-piece ostomy bag and one-piece ostomy bag, are equally effective, so the choice of which system to select is completely based on user preference or individual circumstances.

Ostomy patients with sensitive skin may want to use a 2-piece system to reduce the number of times that the skin barrier is removed and replaced. Two Piece Ostomy Systems come in two basic options--a "stick on" system or a "clip on" system. Patients with arthritis or loss of dexterity with their hands may also find the "stick on" 2 Piece Ostomy Bag easier to use. Patients who are visually impaired may opt for the "clip on" 2-Piece Ostomy Bags. Additionally, these bags are easy to apply and remove and should be replaced approximately every two to five days; the skin barriers should be replaced approximately once or twice a week. 2-Piece Ostomy Bags are available in many different shapes and sizes to best meet the needs of individual ostomy patients.

Like One Piece Ostomy Bags, 2-Piece Ostomy Bags come in several different options, including transparent or opaque, pre-cut or cut-to-fit, drainable or closed, with filters, belt tabs or multi-chambered. Transparent ostomy bags allow for easy visual inspection and are favored by caregivers and hospital staff for easier monitoring. Opaque ostomy bags are favored by ostomy patients who are no longer in the hospital, finding that the opaque design offers more discreet functionality. Pre-cut ostomy bags have a hole positioned in the center of the skin barrier, matching the exact size of the stoma. This allows easy and convenient exchange of a soiled ostomy bag with a fresh one. Cut-to-fit 2-piece ostomy bags allow the pouch to fit the shape and size of most stomas for greater flexibility and adaptation to the individual patient.

2 Piece Ostomy Bags are available in drainable or closed versions. Drainable Ostomy Bags allow you to drain the contents of the ostomy pouch without having to remove from the stoma. Closed Ostomy Bags on the other hand are easily disposable and exchanged for a new replacement pouch. Closed Ostomy Bags are designed for one-time use. Offering greater ease of use, closed system ostomy bags are less likely to leak or release odors. Active ostomy patients and those that exercise daily favor closed system ostomy bags. For ostomy patients that enjoy swimming and water sports, a filtered ostomy bags allows patients to reduce their risk of leaks. Patients who play sports also find the filtered ostomy bags very useful. Ostomy Bags with an integrated filter offer continuous venting without liquids penetrating inside or outside the pouch. Belt tabs provide additional support for ostomy bags to keep them secure against the body. Some ostomy pouches have built-in belt tabs that provide extra support and easier securement. Multi-chambered ostomy bags offers patients a noise reducing option.
