Conduct a randomized control study to compare the tolerance of 4% chlorhexidine gluconate/4% isopropyl alcohol versus povidone iodine vaginal cleansing solutions for surgical preparations ...
The purpose of this study is to find out if chlorhexidine gluconate solution is better at reducing the rate of wound infection after cesarean section compared to povidone-iodine.
This is a prospective, randomized controlled trial to evaluate the ability of hydrogen peroxide preparation in addition to chlorhexidine to decrease the colonization of Propionibacterium a...
The purpose of the present study was to examine the native bacteria around the shoulder and determine the efficacy of three different surgical skin-preparation solutions on the eradication...
Surgical site infections (SSI) are the second most common cause of nosocomial infections accounting for 15% of all nosocomial infections among hospitalized patients and 38% of nosocomial i...
To compare chlorhexidine-alcohol with povidone-iodine solutions for skin antisepsis prior to cesarean delivery for the prevention of surgical site infection.
The authors devised a comparative prospective study to determine the in vitro microbicidal efficacy of skin preparation solutions in the concentrations and temperatures used in the burns theatre again...
Compare the in vitro efficacy of hypochlorous acid 0.01% (HA), povidone iodine 5% (PI), chlorhexidine gluconate 4% (CHG), and isopropyl alcohol 70% (IPA) against common skin microorganisms.
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of application of an alcohol-based antiseptic (80% ethyl alcohol) hand rub (ABAHR) with that of a 2% chlorhexidine gluconate scrub (CGS2) for immediate reduction of t...
To report the rates of postintravitreal injection (IVT) endophthalmitis with topical conjunctival application of various concentrations of povidone-iodine (PI), including no PI.
An iodinated polyvinyl polymer used as topical antiseptic in surgery and for skin and mucous membrane infections, also as aerosol. The iodine may be radiolabeled for research purposes.
Antimony complex where the metal may exist in either the pentavalent or trivalent states. The pentavalent gluconate is used in leishmaniasis. The trivalent gluconate is most frequently used in schistosomiasis.
Preparations used as alternatives or supplements to hand washing with soap and water to destroy microorganisms and prevent transmission of pathogens. The active ingredient may be ETHANOL; 1-PROPANOL; or POVIDONE-IODINE in a gel, foam, or liquid solution.
Stable iodine atoms that have the same atomic number as the element iodine, but differ in atomic weight. I-127 is the only naturally occurring stable iodine isotope.
Unstable isotopes of iodine that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. I atoms with atomic weights 117-139, except I 127, are radioactive iodine isotopes.
