QUFORA® IRRISEDO BED SYSTEM

COMPLETE, CONTROLLED AND HYGIENIC RECTAL IRRIGATION SYSTEM


"It is lovely now to feel clean, comfortable, confident and most of all, in control."

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 cone, 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

Tip #1

Fill the water bag with approx. 100mls of water more than you need to irrigate.

Tip #2

Fit the collection bag to the catheter with the insertion guide in the catheter and connector pointing up.

Tip #3

When the catheter is in the rectum, pull out the insertion guide and let it drop inside the collection bag.

Tip #4

Once water has been instilled, stool can flow back into the collection bag. This process can be repeated until the desired amount of water has been instilled and removed without having to remove the catheter.

What if I have pain or bleeding when inserting the catheter?

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.

What if water leaks out as I’m pumping it into the bowel?

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.

What if no water comes out after I have removed the catheter?

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.

 

What if the tap water is not safe for drinking?

Use bottled water or cooled boiled water.

What if I still have stool coming out after my irrigation session is finished?

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.
