Patient Preparation

Successful examination of the small bowel requires that the upper gastrointestinal tract be empty and essentially free of fluid. This can usually be accomplished by instructing the patient to abstain from eating or drinking anything after the evening meal before the examination.

Directions

Shake well before using.

Pour Entroease into a glass and have the patient drink the entire 600 mLs within 15 minutes. The first radiograph should be taken (in pronation) 15 to 20 minutes after the patient has started drinking. Repeat radiographs at approximately 20 minute intervals until the terminal ileum is visualized.

Pediatric Use

The quantity of suspension used and the barium sulfate concentration will depend upon patient size, technique used and clinical need.

For single patient use only. Properly discard unused portion.
