Two of my summer classes are Gerontology and GI. The Gero instructor said that saline enemas are not recommended because they cause fluid imbalance. The GI instructor said that saline enemas were recommended because they are isotonic and the least irritating.  It's confusing. 

For NCLEX, which would be correct?

0.9% NS is isotonic if I remember correctly. I've never given an NS enema though, only soap suds, tap water, or medication retention enemas ever.
