    Water continues to flow allowing you to comfortably and discreetly evacuate your colon. The Prep Tech will instruct you on completion of the procedure, which routinely takes less than an hour.

Additional patient advantages

  • A clinical study recently presented at a Gastroenterology Meeting showed:
    • patients preferred this procedure
    • fewer adverse events with this prep in comparison to standard prep
    • cleanliness of the bowel at colonoscopy was very good
    • a clean bowel is critical to getting accurate results in colonoscopy
  • The HyGIeaCare Prep System is cleared by the FDA to market and has been proven to be safe and effective in preparing the colon for prep.

The HygiPrep

  • The prep is performed at a HyGIeaCare® Center in a safe, private, sterile and comfortable environment.
  • Our trained Prep Tech will lead you to a private room where you will be asked to be seated on the ergonomic basin.
  • The Prep Tech will lead you through the procedure which routinely takes less than 1 hour.
  • You will be asked to introduce a small, sterile, disposable and lubricated nozzle into the rectum.
  • A gentle stream of warm water will flow into the bowel, loosening stool and inducing peristalsis,  allowing you to comfortably and discreetly evacuate your colon, while urinating at will.

Did you know?

The importance of good bowel cleansing is the key for a high-quality colonoscopy. An incomplete standard prep can result in poor cleanliness, which will make it more difficult for your gastroenterologist to complete the endoscopy procedure satisfactorily.

A recent publication in the American Journal of Gastroenterology highlights that the success of colonoscopy is linked closely to the adequacy of pre-procedure bowel prep, as follows:

Optimizing Adequacy of Bowel Cleansing for Colonoscopy:
Recommendations From the US Multi-Society Task Force on Colorectal Cancer

David A. Johnson, Alan N. Barkun, Larry B. Cohen, Jason A. Dominitz, Tonya Kaltenbach, Myriam Martel, Douglas J. Robertson, C. Richard Boland, Frances M. Giardello, David A. Lieberman, Theodore R. Levin and Douglas K. Rex

Am J Gastroenterology 2014; 109:1528–1545; doi:10.1038/ajg.2014.272; published online 16 September 2014

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Colonoscopy can prevent CRC by the detection and removal of precancerous lesions. In addition to CRC screening and surveillance, colonoscopy is used widely for the diagnostic evaluation of symptoms and other positive CRC screening tests. Regardless of indication, the success of colonoscopy is linked closely to the adequacy of pre-procedure bowel cleansing.

Unfortunately, up to 20–25% of all colonoscopies are reported to have an inadequate bowel preparation. The reasons for this range from patient-related variables such as compliance with preparation instructions and a variety of medical conditions that make bowel cleansing more difficult to unit-specific factors (e.g., extended wait times after scheduling of colonoscopy). Adverse consequences of ineffective bowel preparation include lower adenoma detection rates, longer procedural time, lower cecal intubation rates, increased electrocautery risk and shorter intervals between examinations.

HygiPrep – the Better Choice

The HygiPrep is easier, convenient, hygienic, private, modest and has been proven to be safe and effective.

Performing the HygiPrep will provide the gastroenterologist with a consistently adequately prepped bowel in order to achieve optimal clinical results.
