The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of Bidet on anal resting pressure with regards to various flow rates and temperatures.
Bidet is an electronic device spraying stream of the water for cleansing the anus and sometimes to aid defecation. It is widely used in Korea and Japan, with the flow rate (pressure) and temperature of water varying widely among the manufacturers. However, the effects of Bidet on anorectal function have not been studied in detail with regards to these variables.
Control: Uncontrolled, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Diseases of the parasympathetic or sympathetic divisions of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; which has components located in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Autonomic dysfunction may be associated with HYPOTHALAMIC DISEASES; BRAIN STEM disorders; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES. Manifestations include impairments of vegetative functions including the maintenance of BLOOD PRESSURE; HEART RATE; pupil function; SWEATING; REPRODUCTIVE AND URINARY PHYSIOLOGY; and DIGESTION.
