Care and Cleaning of Enema and Colonic Equipment
One of the few things not discussed in most
literature about enemas.
The colon only responds to stretching such as gas pains or liquid filling it.
The colon has much less defense from the invasion of
microbes and parasites.
Those, who don't want to buy a new bag every time an enema is needed, need to know how to keep it clean. Fecal material reaching the bag is possible and common. This can be prevented in two ways. One, hold the bag high enough to keep the pressure above that, that can be applied from pressure in the patient's colon. The second, is to stop the flow before the bag is completely empty, or to hold the bag up for the last few ounces and then close the clamp before lowering the bag to prevent back flow. Dropping the bag while the clamp is open and attached to the patient, insures that the bag will be contaminated The tubing and hose are another matter. Normal surges in pressure in the patient's rectum and colon during the enema make it almost a certainty that the tubing will have some back flow of fecal material into the tubing.
The first thing to do is wash the bag or bucket with
soap and water.
You can use of a little baking soda in the water. On drying it leaves an alkaline coating on the inside of the bag and tubing. This helps prevent the growth of bacteria, or mildew, and is not toxic as would be many other bactericidal additives.
