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...
Surgical site infection (SSI) rate is reported to range around 16%. Preoperative skin disinfection is keystone for SSI reduction. Chlorhexidine-alcohol has been reported to be more effective than Povi...
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...
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...
To determine epidemiological trends among burns patients admitted to our burns center during 2003-2012, and the usefulness of the Abbreviated Burns Severity Index (ABSI) for predicting burns-related m...
The aim of the present study was to compare antiplaque effectiveness of two commercial mouthrinses: 0.12 % Chlorhexidine alcohol base (CLX-A) versus a diluted 0.1% Chlorhexidine non-alcoho...
The best antiseptic solution for cateheter care remains unknown.High concentration in aquous solution or low concentration in alcoholic solution of chlorhexidine actbetter than povidone io...
This is a randomized clinical trial study to identify the role of AMT (amniotic membrane transplantation) in treating epithelial defect, symblepharon prevention preventing corneal vascular...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether whole body washing with chlorhexidine in combination with mupirocine nasal ointment is effective in the eradication of meticillin-resistan...

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).
