    Great videos but neuro anatomy and physiology for a person with SCI is not the most exciting or sometimes not useful. The provider needs to know. Consistency of the stool-keeping it semi soft with diet, liquids which helps with the slow transit time ( stool softeners, Miralax are first and second line , (laxatives and enemas only as a rescue when no bm or distinction/decreased appetite) most all SCI persons have slow transit time. Next, emptying the rectal vault and preventing accidents. Enemeez/ Plus (one teaspoon only) is a more natural recipe as Bisacodyl(Magic Bullet) work by chemically stimulating the bowels and a mucous results. Dig stim if needed. This is how a bp should be started. Must assess consistency of stool each movement-bristol stool scale recommended and there are apps to document so information can be shared with provider. CWO
