Inflatable Style Enema Nozzle




For those of you who do not know what a inflatable type enema nozzle.
It is an enema nozzle that has an inflatable cuff.
The cuff is inflated and used to hold the enema nozzle in the rectum.
Great for those that have difficulty retaining the nozzle and solution in the rectum.

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.

  • Lubricate enema tip and retention cuff with desired lubricant. (Super Salve  Surgilube) .
  • Insert the enema tip so that the proximal end (base) of the retention cuff is just beyond the anorectal junction. When inflated the base of the cuff should be at the level of the anal sphincter for best retention and maximum safety. If necessary, the cuff should be gently pulled back until its proximal end rests on the anal sphincter. Care must be taken during insertion of the enema tip into the patient to prevent application of pressure to the vagus nerve which can lead to vasovagal reactions and syncopal episodes. Forceful or deep insertion may cause tearing or perforation of the rectum.
  • Use a one-shot inflator  The inflator should be attached to the clear tubing on the enema tip. Before inflating the cuff, visualize the rectum with contrast medium to ensure absence of contraindications.
  • Inflate the cuff under intermittent fluoroscopic control following introduction of sufficient barium so that the rectal walls and balloon can be observed and over inflation of the balloon prevented, SEE CAUTION. This should be performed by a physician or qualified personnel under a physician's supervision.

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.

  • Squeeze the inflator once only and clamp off the retention cuff tubing securely. (you might want to inflate the cuff very, very slowly)
  • Release clamp in enema tubing and administer the desired quantity of the enema.
  • Before removing the enema tip, completely deflate the retention cuff.
  • Deflate the cuff by releasing the clamp on the one-shot cuff inflator before removing the tip.
  • Discard entire enema kit with tip, which is for single-use only

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.
