Some advice before getting started

Before getting started, take the time to help your patient choose the right Qufora® system that suits his or her particular needs and life situation. Then, help the patient learn how the system works by, for example, filling it with water and running through the instructions step by step. The better you and your patient understand the system and how to use it, the easier it will be for everyone.

Have plenty of patience

It will take time for the patient to learn how to use his or her system correctly. Make sure your patient understands that it can take two weeks or longer to figure out the best irrigation routine.

Choosing the right system

Please refer to the chart below when helping your patient choose an irrigation system. Making the right choice from the start can save time and frustration.
