ABSTRACT
Background/Aims. The preparation-to-colonoscopy (PC) interval is one of several important factors for the bowel preparation. Short message service (SMS) reminder from a cellular phone has been suggested to improve compliance in various medical situations. We evaluated the effectiveness of SMS reminders to assure the PC interval for colonoscopy. Methodology. This prospective randomized study was investigator blinded. In the No-SMS group, patients took the first 2 L polyethylene glycol (PEG) between 6 and 8 PM on the day before colonoscopy and the second 2 L PEG approximately 6 hours before the colonoscopy without SMS. In the SMS group, patients took first 2 L PEG in the same manner as the No-SMS group and the second 2 L PEG after receiving an SMS 6 hours before the colonoscopy. Results. The SMS group had a lower score than the No-SMS group, according to the Ottawa Bowel Preparation Scale (P < 0.001). Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that compliance with diet instructions (odds ratio (OR) 2.109; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.11-3.99, P = 0.022) and intervention using SMS ((OR) 2.329; 95% (CI), 1.34-4.02, P = 0.002) were the independent significant factors for satisfactory bowel preparation. Conclusions. An SMS reminder to assure PC interval improved the bowel preparation quality for colonoscopy with bowel preparation.

Ottawa mid is Ottawa score of the midcolon (transverse, descending colon). Ottawa Lt is Ottawa score of the left colon (the rectosigmoid colon). Ottawa fluid is the fluid quantity of the entire colon. PC interval, preparation-to-colonoscopy interval; SMS, short message service of cellular phone.

Ottawa fluid is the fluid quantity of the entire colon. PC interval, preparation-to-colonoscopy interval; SMS, short message service of cellular phone.

Mentions: The median total score of the Ottawa Scale for the total 271 patients was 4 (range: 0–12). The total score of the Ottawa Scale for the SMS group (median 3, range 0–12) was lower than the score for the No-SMS group (median 5, range 1–9) (P < 0.001). In the analyses of each segment of the colon and the fluid quantity, the Ottawa score tended to decline from the right colon to the left colon. The scores for each segment were lower in the SMS group than in the No-SMS group (P < 0.001) for all segments except the left colon (P = 0.054). The score for fluid collection was lower in the SMS group than in the No-SMS group (P < 0.001) (Figure 2).
