Patient pain management and emotional comfort are part of a hospice's primary mission. Centurion's DisImpactor for Hospice can help alleviate patient pain while preventing unneeded emergency department admission due to severe fecal impaction. One of dying patients' greatest fears is hospitalization. Loss of control, dignity and identity, as well as concern that their symptoms will not be effectively managed, cause great anxiety.

Patient hospitalization is also a cost concern for many hospices. If a patient is suffering from a prolonged fecal impaction and needs to be sent to the emergency room via ambulance, this costly transportation expense is typically paid for by the hospice facility.

In the United States alone, treatment for constipation accounts for more than 2.5 million doctor visits annually. Constipation risk increases dramatically after age 65, and its fecal impaction complication risk — affecting about 30 percent of long-term care residents — may cause unexpected and unwanted emergency hospital admissions.

Digital disimpaction offers no standardization of care and produces inconsistent results. Upgrading bowel protocols to include Centurion's DisImpactor supports both the patient's and facility's goals of pain management, cost containment and the best experience possible during end-of-life care.

DisImpactor for Hospice solves many of the clinical shortcomings of digital disimpaction:

  • Comfort-nosed tip gently anchors within the fecal impaction to maximize fragmentation
  • fleXTRACT flexible fins minimize discomfort while their unique sweeping dislodgment design effectively extracts a hard impaction
  • SmartFuse rapid multi-port enema system delivers a 360-degree enema infusion to complete disimpaction
  • Flexible wand provides ample manipulation as well as physical distance from the patient; provides effective reach regardless of the clinician's hand size
  • Church key handle for optimal control
