Enemas are usually used for cleaning out of the colon. Some common benefits which enema provides are the removal of any content present in our colon which causes illness. T…he constant intake of junk food and many other reasons takes a toll on your body which leads to problems with colon. Enema helps to ward off many diseases which haunt our entire life. It is used when you have troubles like constipation, colitis and hemorrhoid. Enemas are useful for health reasons, but have been more popular for pleasurable reasons.
Tap water enema utilizes hypotonic solution to promote defecation when the patient lies in a left Sims' position unless contraindicated. During an enema, the solution passe…s rectum and enters sigmoid colon. Patient in a left Sims' position would benefit from the pull of gravity and therefore a more effective enema. The recommended solution for tap water enema is 500 mL or less for the avoidance of water toxicity. The rationale goes behind the ideas of osmosis and "water always follow solute." While the blood and human physiological environment is slightly more hypertonic (more solute per liter) with sodium than tap water, the hypotonic tap water would naturally follow the higher solute environment and move into the interstitial spaces, causing undesirable hypotonicity in the body referred as "water toxicity." Hence, it is important for clinicians to disregard the common misconception about tap water being "normal" or physiologically safe. Always use the clinical caution that three being the magic number when it comes to enema procedure and check with physician if more than three enemas is necessary. Excessive enemas would place patient in the harm with water toxicity or electrolyte imbalance. For insertion, lubricate 2.5 to 3 inches of the rectal tube and point tip in the direction of patient's umbilicus. Insertion length varies from 3-4 inches for adults, 2-3 inches for children, and 1-1.5 inches for infants. During instillation, the recommended height between the level of enema container or bag and the level of anus is 12 to 18 inches for high enemas, 12 inches for regular enemas, and 3 inches for low enemas. Caution patient the feeling of distention is normal and the desire to evacuate stool might arise. Advise patient to contract rectal sphincter as long as patient can tolerate to promote better stimulation of peristalsis and defecation. Place patient in semi or high Fowler's position with squatting position to promote defecation. To withdraw the rectal tube, place toilet tissues around the tube at anus. If patient's able to ambulate to the bathroom, advise patient not to flush toilet so inspection of amount, color (along with prescience of fresh or dark blood), and consistency (additional mucus or fluid) can be made.
No a salt water enema will not kill you. A proper flush involves 1 quart of lukewarm water, and two heaping tablespoons of unionized Sea Salt. You drink the whole mix as… quickly as possible, and it should flush out your system within a few hours. If you follow the flush properly, then the mixture cannot be absorbed into your body, due to the level of salt in the water. Instead, the body will try to flush it through the system as quickly as possible, which in turn flushes out your bowels. It's best to do it early in the morning, and even better if you skip dinner the night before. These steps insure that the food in your system is fairly far along in digestion, and will be easier to pass through. The only time there can be harm to the body, is if your bowels are too backed up or you recently ate, and the flush can't push it's way through... If that happens, your body will absorb some of the salt, but it still won't kill you. You should just end up with some bloating, and discomfort. Also, if you don't include enough salt, then instead of trying to eliminate it, the body will consider it safe and absorb it. So always be sure to drink the entire mixture, and use enough salt (should taste like salt water) Salt Water Enemas are a great way to loosen up your system!
Technically none. Your colon is multiple feet long, and generally contains fecal material. A large enough enema can empty that out partly or completely, but once you've eaten… food and it's back in your digestive system, it will fill right back up. Practically speaking, a few pounds might disappear temporarily.
The quauntity in liters is five times the water flow rate in liter/minute.
Normally 22.8 GPM
only if ur black
if you are using just plain tap water, it would be just plain water
Lot's of people use them either b4 major surgery, for daily health reasons, before anal play, some use it for sexual as well,
Luke warm is most comfortable.
Tap water is commonly used for adults but should not be used for infants because of the danger of electrolyte imbalance
The patient will be given specific instructions on how to use the enema and how many such enemas are necessary. Generally, the procedure has to be repeated until the return fr…om the enema is clear of stool particles.
Enema is usually given during labor to prepare for the delivery of the fetus.
typically half as much as it takes orally
You may lose a small amount of weight from an enema, but it is insignificant in most cases. You are not losing weight, you are just eliminating feces that is in your intestina…l tract.
