Do you simethicone?


Our GI doc likes to use a Simethicone rinse to get rid of bubbles in the colon. He will tell the GI tech how much, but I am looking for something written that recommends a specific concentration of simethicone for this use. I'm coming up empty handed. Does anyone have anything? Thanks!


***I know SGNA doesn't recommend using Simethicone.

We use to add it to our irrigation bottles but it’s been advised we no longer do that. So now we just draw it up in a syringe & flush on demand. We don’t really have a specific concentration ratio, I just add a dropper full to an 8 oz cup of water, mix it up & the. Draw out a 60 ml syringe of it. 🤷‍♀️
