Education for Hydro Colonic Lavage Bowel Preparation

Hydro Colonic Lavage Bowel Preparation for Colonoscopy

Help save lives by offering hydro colonic lavage to address pre-colonoscopy bowel prep intolerance and get people in for their colonoscopy that otherwise may not be seen.

Osana Health Innovations Foundation offers patients, doctors, nurses, hospitals, and endoscopy centers awareness and education for hydro colonic lavage as a bowel preparation for colonoscopy.

Hydro colonic lavage is a procedure to wash out material from the walls of the bowel,  from rectum to cecum, with controlled bowel evacuation. FDA cleared colonic instrumentation is used.

Hydro colonic lavage bowel preparation is a method combining mild over-the-counter laxatives with a warm water colonic lavage procedure; an integrative approach to bowel cleansing.  Therapeutic value and clinical success is demonstrated by Danbury Hospital, in Connecticut, since 2006, and continued practice at Barton Memorial Hospital, in California, since 2011; both facilities offering hydro colonic lavage for pre-colonoscopy cleansing in their endoscopy departments.


Hydro colonic lavage preparation can help patients with:

  • Previous Prep Intolerance

  • Previous failed prep, or incomplete colonoscopy

  • Bariatric patients

  • Patients with immobility, elderly

  • IBD, History of colon cancer, or patients that undergo frequent colonoscopies.

                        … and for patients who want the choice

Hydro colonic lavage preparation combines mild laxatives plus a clear liquid ‘day before’ protocol, followed by colonic lavage procedure the morning of colonoscopy. Hydro prep safely and gently cleanses the large intestine with warm, purified water and is administered by a registered nurse. The FDA cleared colonic instrumentation is a closed system (from anus to waste management) and uses one-time disposables for each patient. A nurse monitors the patient for tolerance and lavage indicators, and performs the procedure controlling pressure, water flow, evacuation management, temperature and duration to safely and effectively wash out the bowel.
