A comprehensive expert designed to propel nurses toward excellence in the care of digestive, feeding, bowel and urinary ostomies"

A reminder of the anatomical and physiological aspects of the digestive system will be made, in order to know its functions, its parts and its importance in the patient's health.

It will be able to identify which diseases or pathological health processes will lead to the performance of digestive feeding ostomies.

An exhaustive classification of the types of digestive feeding ostomies, their functionalities and temporality, as well as the characteristics that identify them, will be carried out.

Unfortunately, complications can occur in digestive feeding ostomies, so knowing, identifying, preventing and treating them is one of the most important roles that nurses will play in their daily work.

Identifying the techniques and ways of feeding patients with these ostomies is key to know what care is required and what needs must be met, and knowing them will prevent complications and unnecessary adverse events.

Nursing care must be planned, so, thanks to this, we will know what care is required by patients with digestive feeding ostomies at each moment.

There are many types of devices for patient care, knowing them, knowing their functions, their peculiarities is essential to be able to treat the patient. Not all devices are the same and not all patients are the same; each patient requires a different device, which will depend on their characteristics, needs and abilities.

Irrigation is one of the techniques that patients can perform in these types of ostomies, so knowing the technique and its peculiarities is necessary to carry out health education with the patient.

The prevention of urinary tract infections is one of the key points in healthcare, due to the morbimortality that this entails, so taking measures to prevent them and carrying out health education for the patient about them is a basic point in our day-to-day work.
