How It Works***
The BP Trolley conveniently transports the Controller, Fresh Water Tank Assembly, Tank Filling & Cleaning device, Waste Water Tank Assembly, and Direct Power Supply Assembly or a Rechargeable Battery Power Supply Assembly. Every PIE* procedure begins with a new PIE Pak Kit. The kit includes disposable components used during a PIE* procedure that come in contact with fecal waste. The fresh water tank is filled with warm tap water at 98° to 103°F. The speculum has an inflatable cuff. The speculum is lubricated and inserted into the rectum. When the speculum is in place, the cuff is manually inflated with a hand pump to comfortably seal the rectal vault during the procedure. Our easy-to-use controller operates the pumps and valves. Clean water enters the body at low pressure via a remote control button through the inflow hose at a programmable rate. Fecal waste evacuates the body after a programmable hold time by gravity through the outflow hose. Our patented B-Valve prevents excessive water pressure from occurring in the colon by releasing it through the outflow hose with no disruption to the PIE* procedure. The programmable pulse settings can be applied to more aggressively hydrate and loosen hardened stool within the colon. The pulsing action promotes peristaltic activity in the colon. Multiple, programmable, controller settings accommodate a patient’s individual requirements whether it is routine bowel evacuation, fecal impaction removal, colonoscopy exam prepreparation, or other indicated applications. Throughout the procedure, all waste flows into the waste collection bag. When the PIE* procedure is finished, the speculum cuff is deflated, and the speculum is removed. The waste collection bag is emptied into a toilet and all disposable supplies are placed inside a furnished disposal bag for disposing according to local ordinances that govern soiled diapers.
PIE* procedure times vary based on the frequency of use and the volume of fecal waste to be evacuated.. When administered every other day, typical routine times are 30 to 35 minutes.
