What is the difference between a Bisacodyl enema and a saline enema?
A bisacodyl enema is a pre-packaged mini-enema that contains 1.25 oz of liquid and 10mg of bisacodyl. Bisacodyl is a stimulant laxative and acts by causing contractions of the colon muscles. The small volume allows the enema to be comfortably retained for the amount of time necessary for the bisacodyl to act inside the colon, usually within 15 minutes or so and is nice and cramp producing!! A pre packaged saline enema contains a mixture of water and sodium phosphate and is 4oz for the pre-packaged enemas (like Fleets) large volume enemas where a small amount of salt is mixed with warm water (a teaspoon per 1000ml) is far better than the nasty Fleet sodium phosphate enema. Better for you and more cleansing.

Is it ok to get a enema when you have a stomach flu?
An enema won't cure a stomach flu. It will just have to run its course. However, if you are feeling nausea, taking an enema will relieve it by allowing the stomach contents to flow more easily into the intestines and out through your rectum as massive diarrhea. Not too pleasant ... but far less distressing than vomiting repeatedly.

Oil retation enema and cleansing enema was ordered how should it be given?
Give the oil rentention enema first. Most oil retention enemas are held for at least 30 minutes to soften the stool. Give the cleansing enema after the retention enema has been held for the required amount of time. Most people will have a bowel movement within a few minutes after being given a cleansing enema.

Embarrassing moment is when you could not hold your enema?
Yes, for patients it can be quite embarrassing to not hold an enema. However, the volume of fluid that is instilled during an enema varies from the type of enema. You can be assured that the nurse caring for you does not see this as a moment of humor. We truly empathize with patients and the discomfort that the procedure creates. Expulsion of material and fluid from the rectum is a normal turn of events after an enema.
