Colonic nozzle

Common Questions and Answers about Colonic nozzle


Avatar f tn Hello, I have battled MRSA in the nose for a long time and once again am on an antibiotic and a nasal ointment. I use Nasonex. How do I clean the nozzle so that I can be sure there is no bacteria on it after I use it? I'm thinking to use one bottle on the left and another for the right. But I want to clean it right. Most people just wipe it. Is that enough? Thanks for any help.

Making a decision, I open the valve full and grasp the nozzle to advance toward the fire. This is a wet-standpipe system with a high pressure pump that engages when the system is in use. Water comes BLASTING out of the nozzle. I opened the valve full. There is a LOT of water.
Avatar m tn I smoked a shisha yesterday & i think that the waiter didn't changed the nozzle of it , so i think i used someone's nozzle , that's why before smoke it i soaked it in a hot cup of tea for 15 seconds & today when i sprayed an eau de toilette on my face i felt a burning sensation on my lips & when i focused in the miror i found that i have cracked lips . Can hepatitis C or Hiv transmettre by this way . i was on the beach in Egypt & it was 28 Degree Celsius .
Avatar n tn back in november i was at a local community center and i went into the bathroom to wash my hands and i broke the soap dispensor and i was trying to fix it and while i was doing that i noticed there was a bunch of blood drops on the sink and some on the nozzle where the water comes out but i didnt notice any on the handle but i also didnt examine the nozzle very well, i washed my hands and i think i even spashed water into my face and stuff before i noticed the blood, then the other day i went
Avatar f tn I was treated for gonorrhea a week ago. Since then I'd like to begin using my personal lubricant, it's a new bottle and isn't cheap. Is it possible for the bacteria to live on the nozzle without a host? Ive washed it with soap but don't want to risk a reinfection.
Avatar f tn Hi, Colonic inertia is a condition in which the nerves and/or muscles of the colon do not work normally. As a result, the contents of the colon are not propelled through the colon normally. The cause of colonic inertia is unclear. In some cases, the muscles or nerves of the colon are diseased. Colonic inertia also may be the result of the chronic use of stimulant laxatives .Please consult a neurologist for the review of the EMG results and get a nerve conduction study done .
Avatar n tn There is no clear cut association between hysterectomy and colonic inertia. Some of the causes of colonic inertia include inadequate water intake, inadequate fiber, lack of physical activity, increased stress, hypothyroidism, eating large amounts of dairy products, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological diseases and depression. Avoiding dairy products, warm liquids, fruits and vegetables and drnking plenty of water helps.
Avatar f tn I have been told that regular colonic hydration is good for cleaning out the diverticula in a person with diverticulosis. How accurate is that? I have been wanting to go to a CCT, but was worried about it. Has anyone out there tried it? What was it like, and did it work?
Avatar f tn I am 50 years old and my surgeons which i have seen 2 and my family doctor say i have a classic case of colonic inertia. They want to do sugery in August. They will remove 80% of my colon. I have a slow moving digestive system and muscles that dobn't work in my colon. Any-one have anything similar. It is a life ultering treatment. I just want to feel normal again. Not bloat up every time I eat, and have tons of gas all the time.
5153051 tn?1364441441 I am a 28 year old female who has never been pregnant, but who has had a long battle with constipation. After having some real problems with constipation in early February, I have been diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse including a moderately large rectocele and enterocele seen during defecography. The enterocele actually causes the colon/rectum to collapse, obstructing complete defecation.
Avatar n tn Hello first I apologize if my English is not good I just moved in USA. I have had problems with constipation since I can remember my self.
Avatar f tn hi, i have resently been diagnosed with colonic inertia. i had the sitz mark test and my colon still had all of rings in at the end of the test. now my gastro is sending me to a colonectomy surgeon this thursday. my biggest fear is i do not want to have a colostomy. i have had a constipation problem all my life but its getting worse. my gastro dr. told me the older i get the worse this is going to get. i need help from anyone who is going through this and what i can expect.
Avatar n tn Thanks again. How is she now? Did only colonic irrigation helped her and how many sessions she underwent?
Avatar n tn Not sure why you think you have colonic inertia because your doctor had a hard time performing a colonoscopy. Colonic inertia is extremely rare and indicates that the muscles of the colon do not function. It has nothing to do with the shape of the colon. You also do not develop this as a complication of surgery. I have colonic inertia and had my colon removed because of this 6 days ago. I am sitting in my hospital room as we speak.
Avatar m tn My fear is contaminated nasal blood or mucous could have been on or inside the nozzle of the device when I put it briefly to my nose. I would sincerely hope I would have noticed, but the device nozzle was turned upside, filled and just handed to me. I simply didn't think...
Avatar n tn I am unsure if i have IBS but closest topic. I had a colonic irrigation last week to help reduce bloating, it wasnt serious bloating i just thought that i might acheive a flatter stomach. However immediately after the colonic irrigation and ever since i have experienced severe bloating, especially after a meal, i look pregnant and it feels hard with such pressure that it is very uncomfortable to move and i feel like i have to take deeper breaths.
Avatar m tn There were presence of multiple patchy areas of ulceration seen in the colonic mucosa from rectum to hepatic flexure. The ulcers size ranged from 3 to 7 mm with surrounding erythema. The ascending colon, caecum, IC valve and 10 cm of the terminal ileum were normal. Impression - Infective colitis. The doctor also did biopsy & sent the sample to histopathology department for further analysis. Will get the reports in 4-5 working days. Once I get it, will update.
Avatar n tn Polyp is usually a mushroom like mass growing from the colonic wall and bulging into the colon lumen. Histological examination will probably be made and then it will be said if polyps were cancerous or not. In diverticulosis small pouches bulge out from the colonic wall. They by themselves are not harmful but may cause constipation and may get inflammed (diverticulitis). So, it depends on your symptoms and on what exactly will be the result of investigation of polyps.
Avatar m tn I was recently given an allergy nasal spray by a co-worker. He said that he had not used it, but upon using it I found it to be nearly empty. It was over a year old so maybe it evaporated. Since he said it was unused I didn't think to clean the nozzle. I am wondering if I should worry about Hep C... Is is likely to be exposed to HepC in this way?

1009707 tn?1276958241 Has anyone had there large intestine removed and had their small intestine attached to their rectum for colonic inertia and ended up with constipation after surgery? I heard that is a risk factor. That you can get the surgery but there might be a chance you will have constipation again one day. Also has anyone had their large intestine removed for colonic inertia and then their small intestine eventually give out on them? What happened then? . .
Avatar f tn I want to have a colonic but unsure if it will interfere with my VP shunt.
