Kusari also cautions that there is no consensus regarding preprocedure skin sterilization with common products such as Chlorhexidine gluconate
0.5% or povidone iodine, as each can have risks (for example, irritation, thyroid suppression).
The blue brush was assessed for efficacy of 0.2% Chlorhexidine gluconate
used in different environmental conditions in which the brushes were stored by different group members.
The mouthwashes contain several active ingredients, such as chlorhexidine gluconate
, phenol mixture with essential oil, povidone-iodine, and hyaluronic acid.
Antimicrobial activity of a novel adhesive containing Chlorhexidine Gluconate
(CHG) against the resident microflora in human volunteers.
From the analysis, it is evident that topical antiseptic (chlorhexidine gluconate
) reduces the risk of dry socket/infection by 58% (RR = 42; 95% CI; 0.28-0.68) and antibiotics by 44% (RR= 56; 95% CI; 0.34-0.91).
Patients undergoing clean or clean contaminated surgeries were included and were randomly assigned to one of the two groups: group I comprised patients whose skin was preoperatively disinfected using 10% povidone-iodine, and in group II by 2% chlorhexidine gluconate
in 70% alcohol.
The product segments included in this report are hypochlorite, quaternary ammonium compounds, hydrogen peroxide, chlorhexidine gluconate
, peracetic acid, chlorine dioxide, phenolic compounds, alcohols, iodine compounds and aldehydes.
Two tests were done (MTT assay and CLSM analysis) to determine the effectiveness of nanosilver gel, chlorhexidine gluconate
, and camphorated phenol on E.faecalis biofilm.
A lone study comparing chlorhexidine gluconate
with povidone-iodine was undertaken by Berry et al (1982) and found a statistically significantly higher rate of infection in the povidone iodine group than the chlorhexidine group.
A new approach to helping prevent skin infections during sports is to shower or wash prior to activity with a cleanser that contains 4% chlorhexidine gluconate
In the USA the most popular skin preparation is 10% aqueous povidone-iodine, and in their trial the authors test it against 2% chlorhexidine gluconate
and 70% alcohol.
