Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Randomized Endoscopist-blinded Clinical Trial Comparing the Bowel Cleansing Effect and Patient Tolerability of Same Day Polyethylene Glycol Bowel Preparation Regimen v Regimen Given on the Day Before Colonoscopy|
- Comparing All Morning Bowel Prep to Evening Bowel Prep for Patients Undergoing Afternoon Colonoscopies. (Using Ottawa Scale Scores, Range 0-14) Lower Score Indicates a Better Outcome. [ Time Frame: Within 1 hr after the colonoscopy procedure ]
- Patient Satisfaction in the Two Groups, All Morning Prep vs. All Evening Bowel Prep. [ Time Frame: An hour before the colonoscopy procedure ]Variable used to assess patient satisfaction: Loss of sleep. The numbers below depict the number of participants who experienced loss of sleep.
