Contain faecal contamination and maintain a healthy patient environment

The Secco Faecal Management System consists of a silicone catheter tube with inflation cuff and irrigation port, 1500ml collection bag containing a superabsorbent pad, mounting plate with attachment strap and 45ml syringe. The catheter tube is constructed of silicone material. The low pressure retention cuff, once inflated, retains the device in the rectum. Faecal material is diverted into the silicone drainage tube, which provides a route for the faecal matter to pass into the collection bag. The collection bag contains a superabsorbent pad which absorbs liquid faeces creating a semi-solid gel for greater ease of transport and disposal.

Along the drainage tube are two lumens with individual access ports. The white inflation port is used to inflate and deflate the retention cuff, and the blue irrigation port is used to add water to flush and irrigate the catheter tube.

Secco saves more than just patient's dignity
  • The cost of a longer stay in hospital due to C. difficile associated disease is estimated to be £4,000 per case.

  • Patients with faecal incontinence are three times more likely to develop pressure ulcers than those who are continent.

    Faecal incontinence is a distressing problem for the patient and a priority for healthcare professionals who need to balance maintaining patient dignity, risk of cross infection and prevention of skin damage.

Step by Step Guide

Put on your gloves. Gather together Secco, a water based lubrication gel, an incontinence pad and some room temperature water on a tray close to the patient´s bed.


After approval by a qualified physician to ensure the patient is not contra indicated for Secco (please carefully read the Instructions for use).

Thoroughly lubricate the patient’s anus with the water based gel.


Connect the luer lock of the empty syringe into the white port which has a small balloon depicted on it on the deflation/inflation lumen on the side of the Secco device and carefully withdraw all the transport air from the retention cuff until it is fully deflated.


Fill the syringe with 45ml of room temperature water only. Do NOT use hot water.


Attach the collection bag to the Secco catheter like so–pull open the blue lid of the bag and hook the hooks on the connector mounting plate into the two corresponding eyelets either side of the bag entrance at the top of the bag. Then starting at the top ,snap the open bag entrance coupling onto the white connector at the top of the catheter mounting plate . Press down all around the connection between the two to make sure it is secure and fully connected.


Attach the strap onto the lower bed frame at a position lower than the patient will be lying to ensure waste flows downwards with gravity. Make sure it is attached without twisting or kinking the catheter. Note the silicone tube at the joint to the mounting plate may be slowly and carefully rotated to remove any twists in the tube after patient has finally been settled.


Put an incontinence pad underneath the patient and roll the patient onto their left side with their knees towards their chest if possible.


Examine the rectum to ensure there is no blockage and that there are no faeces at the entrance.


Lay the catheter bag on the bed with the collection bag at the foot of the bed.


Attach the syringe with the 45 ml of room temperature water to the white inflation port.


Fold the retention cuff and tube between thumb and index finger and rosebud down to as small a diameter as possible.


Coat the cuff and end of the catheter with water based lubricating gel.


Insert the cuff into the anus until the cuff is inside the rectal vault. If it is far enough inside the patient, the black line on the catheter should just be visible outside the patients body.


Inflate the cuff slowly with the syringe up to a maximum of 45ml of water. Once inflated, hold the inflation port with one hand and gently unscrew the syringe.


Pull gently on the catheter to make sure the cuff is securely located inside the patient


The patient can now be positioned on their back. Make sure the catheter is running in a straight line between their legs and is not twisted or bunched up.


Ensure the hangar and bag hooks are securely fitted to the collection bag and bed lower down than the patient.


If the catheter becomes blocked due to solid matter, fill the syringe with tap water and attach the syringe to the blue port.
