Same-Day Bowel Preparation Works for Afternoon Colonoscopies

From Gastro-Hep News: Same-Day Bowel Preparation Ideal for Afternoon Colonoscopies

An excerpt:

Same-day bowel preparation provides better cleansing and is preferred over a split-dose regimen for patients scheduled for an afternoon colonoscopy, according to results of a randomized, controlled study presented in abstract form by Dr Isabel Manzanillo-DeVore on October 9, 2018 at the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Oral abstract 42)…

Patients in both groups were instructed to drink only clear liquids … beginning at noon the day before the colonoscopy…. In the same-day group, patients began bowel preparation at 5:30 am the day of the procedure and were told to finish a polyethylene glycol–electrolyte solution (PEG-ES; 4 L) at least 4 hours before their appointment.
