recommend a bowel prep for patients having a colonoscopy

New Canadian guidelines will help you recommend a bowel prep for patients having a colonoscopy.

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) (PegLyte, etc) causes less fluid and electrolyte shifts than other bowel preps. Make it your top recommendation for patients with heart, liver, or renal disease.

Be prepared to hear patients complain that PEG preps taste poor... and that the volume of PEG they have to drink is very large...about 4 L.
