|Rectal Enema using one to keep the rectum and colon or large intestine
cleaning. It involves the injection of a liquid into the rectum via the anus to soften the feces.
It distends the rectum and colon, and thereby cause the easy expulsion of the feces. An
enema is often
given for relieving constipation. Before a proctoscopic
examination or barium-enema
x-ray procedure. During the administration of the enema, you will be asked to lie on
side, with the right leg flexed to the chest. This position will enable the enema
solution to flow easily into the colon. The solution most commonly used is a mixture of
mild soap and approximately two liters of warm water that is placed in an (
container) enema bag with a flexible tube. The rectal enema tube ( pic) end will be lubricated
( Super Salve) and inserted into the rectum about 4 to 6 inches, after which the soap
solution will be administered. Injecting the solution slowly helps to minimize discomfort.
It is also helpful to breathe slowly and deeply through the mouth to help minimize
discomfort and enable you to take the enema more comfortably and easily. If you experience
cramps, you need to let the administrator know so that the flow of the solution can be
slowed or stopped momentarily to make you more comfortable. Once the enema is
administered, you will probably feel the need to move your bowels. If possible, wait about
5 minutes to get the best results. After you empty your bowels, please do not flush the
toilet, as the administrator should to view the evacuated contents to ensure the enema did
its job correctly. Enemas are great as long as you go to the toilet after you receive the soapy enema up
your rectum. If the anus begins to release soapy water and or
coffee enema before you are ready remember to have plenty of towels handy.
