For those of you who do not know what a inflatable type
After the nozzle is inserted, the cuff is inflated slightly to help form a seal against the anal sphincter muscle inside the rectum of the recipient. This keeps the enema nozzle from being expelled prematurely. An inflatable nozzle really helps to retain an enema.
Instructions for using this style enema nozzle (copied verbatim from the package except for comments in the parentheses):
The following instructions should be used for enema nozzles with inflatable retention cuffs. Instructions for use of nozzle without a cuff should be modified accordingly.
Caution: Care must be taken to avoid over inflation of the cuff, since overfilling, or symmetrical filling with displacement of the tip(Explode), may occur. Such displacement can lead to rectal perforation, barium granulomas or vasovagal reactions, or may cause the retention cuff to deflate. Over inflation may also cause the inflatable cuff to rupture with possible injury to the patient.
The kits come with instructions to dispose of it after one use. I'm sure many people will find a way to use these kits several times. The construction of the kit seems substantial enough for a few times, cleaning this kit doesn't seem more difficult that cleaning any enema syringe.
Warning: Do not use enemas
or laxatives if abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting are present unless directed by your
health care provider.
Rectal bleeding or failure to have a bowel movement after use of a laxative or enema may indicate a serious condition.
Discontinue use and consult your health care provider.
