Colon/Rectal Tube

Colon tubes and rectal tubes are basically the same thing.  The only difference being is the length of tubing.  Rectal tubes tend to be shorter, usually about 16 in. to 24in. in length. Colon tubes can be as long as 60 in. which can reach the ascending colon.

Rectal tubes and colon tubes come in several different diameters.   They use a French measurement , and the smaller the number the smaller the diameter of the tube. A 32Fr is approximately 3/8 in. in diameter or as a 42 FR is approximately 1/2 inch in diameter and a 48FR is approximately 3/4 in. in diameter.
