McKesson Stay Dry Regular Underpads

Underpad Protection for Nighttime Incontinence

If covering your entire mattress for nighttime protection doesn'appeal to you, there are options that are even more temporary than products like vinyl mattress covers. A waterproof underpad provides both wetness protection and easier removal and cleaning. The product goes right on top of your sheet so that, in the event of an accident, you can easily replace the pad, rather than the bedding. Underpads can also be placed between the sheet and the mattress if you prefer the feel of your own bedding. They're available either washable or disposable.

Washable underpads have a lot of advantages. Because they're reusable, they eliminate the expense of buying replacements. Also, they can absorb about 4 cups of liquid, which is more than an adult bladder can hold.

Disposable underpads such as Chux underpads and Tranquility Peach Sheet Underpads are highly-absorbent and help cut down on laundry volume. Some varieties, such as Prevail Underpads, come in a variety of sizes and can be used to protect furniture as well. When used in combination with protective undergarments, these products will keep those suffering from incontinence clean, dry, and comfortable.

Tranquility ATN All-Through-the-Night Disposable Briefs

Nighttime Protection for Those with Caregivers

Millions of people require assistance with elimination, either with reaching the bathroom in a timely manner or with putting on or removing protective undergarments. Briefs or diapers are convenient products for those who require the assistance of caregivers for their incontinence management, as they offer both easy and dignified changing and high absorption.

Nighttime incontinence is an even bigger issue for many individuals, as they may require changing while they're asleep or may have to keep their protective undergarments on through multiple bowel or bladder movements. In such cases, patients should look for products with substantial protection against the damaging effects of body waste, a large capacity for liquid, and extra comfort. One such product is the Tranquility ATN Disposable Brief. Available in a variety of sizes, the Tranquility ATN offers a Kufguard fecal barrier, a wetness indicator, and lycra leg openings. With capacities of 27.5 ounces (medium size) and 33 ounces (large size), the Tranquility ATN offers protection "all through the night."

Products for Those Who Require Assistance

Taking care of someone with limited mobility can be selfless, hard work. When that task involves changing adult diapers or other incontinence aids, it's important to make things as easy as possible for everyone involved.

For individuals who can toilet with assistance, protective undergarments that are easy to remove are a good choice. Guards or liners such as Poise Pads, Tena Serenity Pads, and other bladder control pads can handle mild to moderate incontinence and are easy to replace. Disposable pull-up briefs are great for those able to apply and remove undergarments themselves; however, they can be challenging if a caregiver's assistance is needed. If this is the case, adult diapers (or briefs) are a better option, as they go on and off from front to back, rather than through the legs.

For those confined to a bed or who experience fecal incontinence, disposable briefs provide high absorbency and are easy to put on and take off using side tabs and fasteners. With just a slight elevation of the patient's hips, the brief can be discarded and quickly replaced, making the caregiver's job easier and the patient more comfortable.
