WELCOME TO USING THE QUFORA® IRRISEDO CONE SYSTEM
The Qufora® IrriSedo Cone system is developed for patients who are able to sit on or over a toilet. It can be used by patients (or their carers) by holding a cone in the rectum while the water is being instilled.
This simple to use system works by connecting a tube from the water bag to a cone. 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 cone, which is easily inserted and removed. The process takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
In order to gain continence and prevent constipation it is recommended to perform rectal irrigation daily or every other day.
The Qufora® IrriSedo Cone system is simple to learn and easy to handle.

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.
