Aquaflush® trans-anal irrigation makes bowel emptying easy

Do you (or your patient) have trouble emptying your bowel?

A solution is using an aquaflush rectal irrigation system that makes it easy to empty your bowel safely using rectal irrigation, also known as trans-anal irrigation.

Here’s How Bowel Irrigation Works

Scroll down to read..

Usually every other day, while sitting on the toilet, you insert a specially-shaped cone into your rectum, so the Aquaflush system can dispense lukewarm 96-degree (body temperature) water into your rectum.

The water pressure causes your rectal walls to swell which in turn makes you feel the need to defecate. Once you stop the water flow, then any stool and the water are emptied into the toilet. You may wish to repeat this a second time if you feel the need. The irrigation process takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Trans-anal Irrigation is More Effective

Figure 3: After regular defecation, people with bowel disease or issues usually still have a large amount of faeces in their colon which can cause problems.

Figure 4: When rectal irrigation is used, you usually achieve a completely empty colon, sigmoid and rectum.

“Aquaflush has been a huge success for me. For almost a year after my spinal cord injury, I spent hours on my bowel program every morning, just to have accidents almost every day. But since starting Aquaflush 3 months ago, I’ve only had one accident. Because I’ve been having fewer accidents, I’ve been having fewer UTIs, and I’ve become less dependent on disposable underwear. Aquaflush has drastically improved my quality of life – I’m no longer constantly worrying about accidents, I’m more confident to leave the house for longer periods of time, and because I can use Aquaflush on my own, I am now much more independent.”

Rectal Irrigation is Safe

Experience has proven that trans-anal irrigation is a safe way to empty your bowels. There’s only a low 1 in 50,000 chance of perforating your bowel according to published studies, which is lessened when patients learn how to perform rectal irrigation properly. A healthcare professional should evaluate you and be with you when you first perform trans-anal irrigation. Mild side effects might include chills, sweating, or abdominal cramps.
