Comparison of intraoral distribution of two commercially available chlorhexidine mouthrinses with and without alcohol at three different rinsing periods.

This study compared the intraoral distribution of 0.1% chlorhexidine with alcohol (CHX+Alc) and 0.2% chlorhexidine without alcohol (CHX-Alc) with shorter rinsing times (10s,20s,30s) following a 72h no...

Evaluation of two chlorhexidine-alcohol-based skin disinfectants in blood donation setting.

Source reduction is important in minimizing bacterial-contaminated risk of blood products, but previous evaluation of chlorhexidine (CHX) was confounded by inability of Tween and lecithin to neutraliz...

Determination of chemical components derived from 2% chlorhexidine gel degradation using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.

Abstract Objective. This study determined the chemical components derived from degradation of 2% chlorhexidine (CHX) gel and solution by using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Materials and metho...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Injuries to tissues caused by contact with heat, steam, chemicals (BURNS, CHEMICAL), electricity (BURNS, ELECTRIC), or the like.

The formation of a solid in a solution as a result of a chemical reaction or the aggregation of soluble substances into complexes large enough to fall out of solution.

A chemical system that functions to control the levels of specific ions in solution. When the level of hydrogen ion in solution is controlled the system is called a pH buffer.

Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).
