Tubes, Rectal, Enema
Definition : Rectum tubes designed to deliver water and sterile or therapeutic solutions (i.e., enemas) into the rectum. These devices typically consist of a single-lumen rubber or plastic (e.g., silicon) tube of 14 to 30 French diameter, about 10 cm (4 inches) long that is inserted through the anus into the rectum. Enema rectum tubes are connected to an enema tip attached to external tubing that runs from an external reservoir (i.e., enema bag) using gravity; dedicated enema tubes for barium delivery are also available.
