Help Patients With Bowel Preps for Colorectal Cancer Screening
Up to 25% of patients getting a colonoscopy may have inadequate bowel prep.
Help make the prep easier to swallow...and explain a poor prep can lead to missed lesions, longer procedures, need for repeat tests, etc.
Be familiar with bowel prep pros and cons. Consider 4 L of PEG with electrolytes solutions (GoLytely, etc) as the old standbys. These work well, aren't likely to cause water or electrolyte imbalances, and cost as little as $16.
