What is Urology and what are Urology Supplies?
Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the function and disorders of the urinary system. The urinary system’s primary organs are the kidney and bladder which help the body remove fluid and toxins in the form of urine. Urological supplies assist individuals whose bodies are not able to do this in the usual manner. Injury, illness, surgery and incontinence are all factors that could lead a person to require temporary or long-term use of these products. Common urology supplies that you will find at Kansas City Home Medical Supply are straight catheters, indwelling catheters, external catheters, urine drainage collection bags and a variety of urological accessories. Ostomy supplies may also be required for patients with urological problems.
What is an Ostomy and what are Ostomy Supplies?
An ostomy is an artificial opening in the body, created during an operation such as a colostomy, ileostomy or nephrostomy. A stoma, usually on the abdomen, is created to allow the waste from the body to be removed when traditional excretion is not possible. An ostomy may be needed to help a patient excrete urine or feces if part of the intestinal or urological system is compromised. Injury, illness, surgery and incontinence are all factors that could lead a person to require temporary or long-term use of these products. Common ostomy supplies that you will find at Kansas City Home Medical Supply are ostomy bags and barriers, as well as a variety of accessories that assist in their use.
