Why CHGPrep Swab Applicator ?
CHG is a fast-acting, broad spectrum, persistent antiseptic that significantly reduces the number of microorganisms on intact skin.Together, the formulation and applicator provide a proven system that supports infection control guidelines for helping to reduce the incidence of BSIs and SSIs. It is thought by many clinicians to be the most exciting breakthrough in antiseptics since povidone iodine. Chlorhexidine Gluconate the most effective antiseptic skin prep, is now available in an innovative new swab stick technology. The design of the new CHGPrep swab stick provides a significant improvement in performance over traditional swab sticks. CHG maintains a persistent antimicrobial function by disrupting the cell membrane and precipitating their contents. IPA quickly destroys micro-organisms by denaturing cell proteins, giving significant defense against broad-spectrum micro-organisms and rapid bactericidal action and keeps fighting bacteria for at least 48 hours. (Methicillin-resistant staph aureus [MRSA] and Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE), Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are the three infamous multi-drug resistant [MDRO's] )

Different skin disinfection sites:
1.Completely wet the treatment area with antiseptic, using gentle back-and-forth strokes,
progressing from the insertion/incision site to the periphery:
2.For dry sites (e.g., abdomen or arm):
Use gentle, repeated back-and-forth strokes for 30 seconds
3.For moist sites (e.g., inguinal fold or axilla):
Use gentle, repeated back-and-forth strokes for two minutes
Drying after use
1.Allow the solution to completely dry for a minimum of three minutes on hairless skin and up to one hour in hair.
2.Do not blot or wipe away the solution.
3.The solution must be dry for optimal drape/ dressing adhesion.
Safety points for products containing alcohol
1.Do not drape or use an ignition source (e.g., cautery, laser) until the solution is completely dry for a minimum of three minutes on hairless skin and up to one hour in hair.
2.Do not allow the solution to pool. Remove wet materials from the prep area.
