Dispelling Myths About 
Bladder & Bowel Control 
Continence Care Management: What a Health Care Professional Needs to Know 
From The National Association For Continence
Myth: 
Products can’t be worn around the clock 
• Based on the concept that skin 
“needs to breathe,” nurses were 
advised in the past not to place 
disposable briefs on residents 
around the clock. 
• Today’s nonwoven technology and 
product versatility free clinicians 
from this outdated myth. It is the 
side panels of re-fastenable 
garments that are breathable.
Myth: 
Reusable and natural fibers are better for 
the skin than disposables 
• Reusable absorbents may cost 
more to use, fail to wick away 
moisture from the skin, and incur 
higher labor and utility costs. 
• Today’s advanced technology 
allows layering superabsorbent 
polymers with other high 
performance materials to prevent 
skin from being re-wet and to 
provide fabrics with air flow to 
permit trapped body heat and 
perspiration to vent.
