WELCOME TO USING THE QUFORA® IRRISEDO BED SYSTEM
The Qufora® IrriSedo Bed system is a ‘closed’ rectal irrigation system especially for patients who are unable to sit on an ordinary toilet and therefore need their bowel management to be carried out on the bed.
The system flows the water into the rectum. The return water is collected hygienically and odour free in the collection bag.
Using the system for 15 to 30 minutes, you can achieve minimum 24 hours of continence. The single use system has a number of unique features and for the first time allows rectal irrigation to be carried out in a hygienic, odour free way on the patients bed.
The water bag is hung up and a hand pump with easy to use valve is supplied. Water is then instilled into the rectum via the catheter, which is easily inserted and removed. The process takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
The Qufora® IrriSedo Bed system is simple to learn and easy to handle.
The system includes:
- water bag
- collection bag
- rectal catheter, available in ø12, ø21 and ø30 – single use
Irrigation sets includes:
- 1 water bag with pump, 5 rectal catheters, 5 collection bags
- 15 irrigation sets contain: 1 water bag with pump, 15 rectal catheters, 15 collection bags

USEFUL TIPS USING THE QUFORA® IRRISEDO BED SYSTEM
QUFORA® BOOKLETS AND FAQs
If you have excessive pain or bleeding seek immediate medical advice.
However, minor bleeding can be due to trauma from catheter insertion. Remember to lubricate the catheter and insert the catheter slowly and gently into the rectum.
If minor bleeding or pain persists contact your healthcare professional.
Ensure the catheter is inserted far enough into the rectum but not as far as the clear disc at the end of the catheter.
If you have only used one full pump of water you can pump one more time to help create a better seal.
Wait for a few more minutes, you can try coughing and massaging your abdomen, this can help to start the bowel moving.
Sometimes you may be dehydrated and the water absorbs into the bowel lining. If this persists contact your healthcare professional.
This may be something that happens in the early stages of irrigation when the bowel is quite full. It may be resolved after using irrigation for a while.
Your healthcare professional will be able to advise you further.
