  • Infection
  • Several studies have investigated the likelihood that an anti-bacterial agent, chlorhexidine, administered during labor and delivery to mother and infant could reduce the risk of infection and of subsequent maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Central lines are a mainstay of treatment in these babies because of the need for extended parenteral nutrition, which itself has been associated with blood stream infection, not to mention the increased use of anti-infectives, added hospitalization costs, longer length of stay, and negative impact upon nutrition delivery when infectious complications occur. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • antiseptic
  • Gentian violet has been used in medicine for almost 100 years: as an antiseptic for external use, as a topical antibiotic, as a topical antifungal agent, as an antihelminthic agent by oral administration, and more recently, as a blood additive to prevent transmission of Chagas' disease.

  • Hypothesis: Bacteria present in surgical drains after tissue expander reconstruction may be decreased by simple and inexpensive local antiseptic interventions. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • infections
  • For the local treatment of oropharyngeal candidiasis and vaginal yeast infections, also used in fungal infections of the skin such as ringworm, athlete's foot, and jock itch. (pharmacycode.com)
  • The purpose of this study is to determinate whether in newborns just cleaning the umbilical stump when changing diapers (with water and soap if necessary)is effective in preventing local cord infections and not delaying cord separation as just as cord care alcohol, usually applied in our hospital and suggested to parents at dismission. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Community acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) is an emerging pathogen of the 21st century whose incidence as a cause of local and invasive infections has significantly increased, especially in previously healthy term and near term newborns. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • It has been shown that the majority of infections may be linked to local contamination during surgery reinforcing the idea that prevention is mainly based on local measures and the reduction of operating time. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • intervention
  • As part of these efforts, investigators have ready locally adapted training, treatment and fidelity rating manuals, a successful paraprofessional intervention delivery model, clinical assessment tools, and an experienced local team of trainers and supervisors. (clinicaltrials.gov)
