The purpose of this study is to determine the contents of a chlorhexidine-containing dressing after use.
To characterize the chemical composition of the CHG (2% CHG) Catheter Dressing Patch as compared to Biopatch Protective Disk with CHG, and Tegaderm IV (intravenous) Securement Dressing over a wear period of 7 days.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a catheter dressing every 7th day is not inferior to a catheter dressing every 3 days and if Chlorhexidine impregnated sponges are effecti...
Failure of labor epidural is a well-recognized situation in obstetric anesthesia practice. Incidence of epidural failure was shown to be 12% in a retrospective analysis of 19.259 deliverie...
A multi-center randomized control trial comparing the dressing wear times of two different transparent film dressings when used to secure peripheral intravenous catheters of hospitalized a...
We proposed to perform a prospective randomized controlled trial to study the effect of the use of a commercially-available chlorhexidine-impregnated sponge (Biopatch) as part of central v...
TegaCHG is a multicentric randomized study aimed at evaluating the possibility that the use of TegaDerm CHG dressing may reduce the incidence of catheter related blood stream infections (C...
Purpose/Aim of the study: Chlorhexdine has been shown to provide excellent and cost-effective presurgical antisepsis. However, standard presurgical concentrations of chlorhexidine (2-4%) are known to ...
This descriptive survey identified factors contributing to phlebitis among 46 adult inpatients using a systematic random sample. The visual infusion phlebitis score was used for assessment. All partic...
Short peripheral catheter (SPC)-related phlebitis can lead to bloodstream infections and affect patients' quality of life. A randomized trial was carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of 2 treatme...
Traumatic skin tears often occur in patients with dystrophic skin. Closing them with adhesive skin closures is useful for patients with a healthy flap, but occasionally fails to cover the entire defec...
Acute hemorrhage remains the leading cause of death in potentially survivable injuries. The use of topical hemostatic agents has increased over the last two decades with the evolution of damage contro...
An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.
A medicated adhesive patch placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of medication into the bloodstream.
Skin tests in which the sensitizer is applied to a patch of cotton cloth or gauze held in place for approximately 48-72 hours. It is used for the elicitation of a contact hypersensitivity reaction.
A hindrance to the passage of fluids through a CATHETER.
Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
