More Information

  • Irrigant Administration:
    - Position the patient on left side in slight Trendelenburg position
    - Fully inflate the air bed (if one is in use)
    - Fill the ActiFlo irrigation bag with 300 mL to 500 mL of lukewarm water or saline (as prescribed by physician)
    - Hang the irrigation bag from an IV pole 2-3 feet higher than the patients anus
    - Connect the irrigation bag administration tubing to the CLEAR connector (IrrigRx) after removing the white-capped tethered adapter. Open the roller clamp on the irrigation tubing.
    - Allow the fluid to drain by gravity into the rectum and colon over approximately 10 minutes.
    - If the irrigant will not infuse or infuses slowly, squeeze the gravity bag to clear the occlusion
    NOTE: If the patient experiences cramping or leakage, it may be related to irrigation volume, irrigation rate, or irrigant temperature. These may need to be adjusted for each patient. NEVER use a hot liquid as an irrigant.
    - Post Irrigant:
    - Allow drainage of the fluid and feces out of the rectum and colon.
    - Drainage may be facilitated by positioning patient in a slight reverse Trendelenburg position to assist gravity.
    - The return may not be complete or immediate.
    - Strip the catheter tubing (starting at the anchor straps) to push remaining stool and fluid into the collection bag. Empty or replace the collection bag as needed.
    - Verify connection to the correct catheter connector.
    - Do not connect irrigation bag to an IV.
    - Do not use irrigation bag for enteral feeding.
