How To Attach the Osto-EZ-Vent®

PREP: Attach OEV™ nearest the top of the outside of the non-stoma side of the pouch. If the pouch has a fabric or mesh cover/comfort layer, cut a hole in that lower to expose the plastic pouch wall below. Do not attach the OEV™ on top of a filer (if applicable). Store unused OEV™ at 72° F (24° C).
1.) Moisten cotton pad with 91% isopropyl alcohol. Rub plastic pouch wall until the gloss of the pouch surface is removed. Let dry.
2.) Peel away the green/white backing from the OEV™ to reveal adhesive. Do not touch the adhesive.
3.) Place the OEV™ horizontally on the cleaned area. Press firmly around the circular base of the OEV™ as shown at left. Set aside for 24 hours to allow adhesive to securely bond to your pouch.
4.) Pull down the side of the pouch where the OEV™ is attached so the adhesive side of the OEV™ is opposite the stoma opening of your pouch (for one-piece pouches, cut your stoma opening first).
5.) With the narrow end of scissors, puncture pouch wall behind the OEV™. Twist the blade back and forth to remove excess pouch material. The hole should be the size of the OEV™ opening.
6.) With the hole created, flatten pouch to its original position and close the OEV™ as shown at left.
7.) To open the OEV™, pinch DOWN on the OEV™ Glides (tabs). The Glides will push against the circular base of the OEV™ to lift the plug up and put.
