The B protomer binds cholera toxin to intestinal epithelial cells, and facilitates the uptake of the A1 fragment. The A1 catalyzed transfer of ADP-RIBOSE to the alpha subunits of heterotrimeric G PROTEINS activates the production of CYCLIC AMP. Increased levels of cyclic AMP are thought to modulate release of fluid and electrolytes from intestinal crypt cells.Administration, Topical: The application of drug preparations to the surfaces of the body, especially the skin (ADMINISTRATION, CUTANEOUS) or mucous membranes.

Common symptom is DIZZINESS but greater negative impacts on the body occur when there is prolonged depravation of oxygen and nutrients.

An appreciation of A.E. Malloch, MB, MD (1844-1919): a forgotten surgical pioneer. (1/60)

Dr. Archibald Edward Malloch was a surgeon whose life and work were greatly influenced by Joseph Lister and his revolutionary system of antiseptic surgery. This paper describes how a young Canadian medical man came to introduce Lister's system to North America in 1869 and studies his career in the light of Lister's surgical epoch.  (+info)

Expectations and perceptions of Greek patients regarding the quality of dental health care. (2/60)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the perceptions and expectations of patients regarding the quality of dental health care they received and the criteria they used to select a dentist. DESIGN: Descriptive study. METHODS: Two questionnaires referring to the expectations and the perceptions of dental health care were handed to patients. Likert-type scales were used to evaluate the characteristics examined. These characteristics have been classified in four quality dimensions: 'assurance', 'empathy', 'reliability' and 'responsiveness'. STUDY PARTICIPANTS AND SETTING: Two hundred consecutive patients who visited the Dental Clinic of the School of Dentistry, University of Athens, Greece, in 1998-1999. RESULTS: The patients' top priority was adherence to the rules of antisepsis and sterilization. Women of the middle and lower socio-economic groups were more demanding than men of the same groups, while men of the upper socio-economic group appeared to be more demanding than women (P = 0.02). Their perceptions of the dental service provided reflected their satisfaction regarding the adherence to the rules of antisepsis and sterilization, but also showed their moderate satisfaction regarding most of the other characteristics and their dissatisfaction regarding information on oral health and hygiene. CONCLUSION: Expectations and demands regarding empathy (approach to the patient) and assurance were placed at the top of the patients' priorities. A highly significant quality gap was observed between the desires of the patients and their perceptions (P< 0.01) and the largest gap was noted concerning information they received about oral health diseases. The largest quality gap was also observed in characteristics regarding responsiveness.  (+info)

Wound infection in colonic surgery. (3/60)

Three hundred forty-one consecutive cases of colonic surgery performed by the Proctology service of our hospital have been reviewed. There was a total of 7 wound infections, constituting an incidence of 2.1%. The infection rate in clean contaminated cases was 0.8% and in contaminated cases, 4.7%. The mortality rate was 2.3%. Parenteral antibiotics were used in less than 50% of the operations. Our impression is that attention to one modality of wound infection prevention with disregard for the others will produce little. However, close attention to all the modalities by which we can hope to reduce wound infection appears to produce strikingly beneficial results.  (+info)

Bacteriology of air-conditioning ducts with special reference to operating rooms. (4/60)

The number of bacteria in air, before filtration with five different easily available filters in the low positive-pressure type of airconditioning system of the Winnipeg General Hospital, was between 3 and 4/cu. ft., and after filtration between 1 and 2/cu. ft. with all types of filters. Cl. welchii contributed about 1% and Staph. pyogenes about 0.1% of this total. Sampling the exhaust air from an operating room during an operation showed that the bacterial count fluctuated with the degree of activity in the room and was from two to 10 times as high as in the air delivered to the room.Atlhough every reasonable attempt should be made to diminish the bacterial count of air in hospitals, if much energy and money is to be spent it would probably be wiser to investigate sources of hospital infection other than the type of air-conditioning system described in this report.  (+info)

Enumeration of air-borne bacteria in hospital. (5/60)

An investigation of the "normal" bacterial content of the air of a large general hospital is described. In many different places within five different areas 70 to 200 settle-plate or slit-sampler bacterial counts were carried out. Average counts were most often of the same order as or lower than other published results and were proportional to human activity. The use of the logarithms of the counts showed no advantage, and conventional statistics should be applied with caution in evaluating such studies. Slitsampler and settle-plate counts of all bacteria showed no correlation, whereas those of Staph. aureus were correlated. There is a lack of parallelism between hospital infection and air bacteria counted by current methods, which are, therefore, not suitable for routine use.  (+info)

ASEPSIS IN THE OPERATING THEATRE. (6/60)

In the investigation of several blood stream infections following open-heart surgery, sutures and other material that had been exposed and handled in the sterile field were examined bacteriologically. One hundred and seventy-five open-heart operations were carried out during the study period and a high percentage of the specimens cultured yielded viable staphylococci and diphtheroids. Glove powder, textile fibres, and skin squames were found in the dust that collected in the room during the operations and staphylococci were frequently recovered from this source, and from the floor. Although the air supply to the theatre appeared to be of good quality, it is suggested that air currents within the room had caused dissemination of this foreign material and had probably contributed to wound infections.  (+info)

BETA-PROPIOLACTONE DECONTAMINATION OF SIMIAN VIRUS-40 AS DETERMINED BY A RAPID FLUORESCENT-ANTIBODY ASSAY. (7/60)

beta-Propiolactone vapor treatment of vaccine production facilities has been shown to be approximately 90% effective in the elimination of large quantities of Simian virus-40 (SV(40)). The use of a rapid fluorescent-antibody assay for the detection of SV(40) was also studied.  (+info)

Preparing the wound bed 2003: focus on infection and inflammation. (8/60)

Wound bed preparation is the promotion of wound closure through diagnosis of the cause, attention to patient-centered concerns, and correction of systemic and local factors that may delay healing. To enhance the evidence base that may be lacking, a review of relevant literature was conducted and combined with input from the International Wound Bed Preparation Advisory Board and the Canadian Chronic Wound Advisory Board to create an updated examination of practices. A template based on expert opinion of the clinical actions corresponding to each step in the paradigm of preparing the wound bed is presented and the effects of local factors (tissue debridement, infection or inflammation, moisture balance, and edge effect [TIME]) are discussed. This review differentiates increased bacterial burden/infection in the superficial and deep wound bed compartments from inflammation and provides a topical approach to treatment. Inflammatory conditions causing leg ulcers, including pyoderma gangrenosum and vasculitis are reviewed. The topical combination of silver with absorptive dressings has led to new therapeutic options for increased bacterial burden in the surface wound compartment. A compilation of the available systematic reviews for the treatment of infection has been included as a background for the expert opinion.  (+info)

PURPOSE To investigate ocular bacterial count before and after antisepsis with aqueous chlorhexidine (AC) or povidone-iodine (PI) and to assess discomfort with each agent. METHODS Bacterial swabs were taken from participants eyes before and after antisepsis. These underwent microscopy, culture, and sensitivity testing. Aqueous chlorhexidine drops were administered to left eyes and PI to right eyes. Participants rated their pain (scale 0-10) for each eye but were blinded to the type of drop. RESULTS There were 20 participants (17 women, 3 men), and the mean age was 43 years. Pain scores were significantly higher in right (PI) than in left (AC) eyes (mean 7 vs. mean 2, P | 0.001). No abnormalities were detected on specimen microscopy and gram staining. Seven preantisepsis swabs (three left and four right) grew bacteria in culture. Two postantisepsis swabs grew bacteria in primary culture plate (1 after AC and 1 after PI). For an additional one post-PI swab, bacteria were detected in enrichment broth
Chlorhexidine has attracted increasing attention for its role in skin antisepsis in recent years. It was tested in several prominent clinical trials and subsequently recommended in important guidelines for blood culture collection, vascular catheter

Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology. 34(4), p.430-432. Abstract:. We conducted a randomized controlled trial in neonates with birth weight greater than or equal to 1,500 g that compared 1% aqueous chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) with 10% povidone-iodine (PI) as a topical antiseptic. We found 1% CHG to be more effective than 1% PI in reducing blood culture contamination rates, and no contact dermatitis was observed.. ...
BACKGROUND: A number of evidence-based interventions have been proposed to reduce post-cesarean delivery wound complications. Examples of such interventions include appropriate timing of preoperative antibiotics, appropriate choice of skin antisepsis, closure of the subcutaneous layer if subcutaneous depth is ≥2 cm, and subcuticular skin closure with suture rather than staples. However, the collective impact of these measures is unclear. OBJECTIVE: We sought to estimate the impact of a group of evidence-based surgical measures (prophylactic antibiotics administered before skin incision, chlorhexidine-alcohol for skin antisepsis, closure of subcutaneous layer, and subcuticular skin closure with suture) on wound complications after cesarean delivery and to estimate residual risk factors for wound complications ...

Pringle made a particular study of the treatment of fractures, where he was at an advantage because X-rays had been introduced very early into clinical practice in Glasgow Royal Infirmary, an innovation that allowed Pringle to gain wide personal experience of fractures and their management. His colleague John Macintyre (1857-1928) had established the worlds first x-ray service for patients in Glasgow Royal Infirmary in March 1896.[7] This allowed James Hogarth Pringle an early, perhaps unique experience in fracture diagnosis and management using x-rays, and formed the basis for his book on fractures and their treatment.[8] He had the added advantage of working in the hospital where Joseph Lister had first introduced antisepsis and would surely have been aware of his own fathers work on antisepsis in introducing Listerian antisepsis into Australia. He was, like Sir William Macewen, an early exponent of aseptic technique in surgery. Both of these factors undoubtedly contributed to his expertise ...
Skin preparation solutions are used to clean the skin of the patient before surgery to decrease the rate of infection. This is particularly important for hip replacement to reduce the risk of prosthetic joint infection. The use of a mark on the skin for site identification has become the standard of care to decrease wrong site surgery. The Joint Commission has mandated site identification as part of the surgical time-out. This procedure is also mandated by hospital policy.. Preliminary work on cadaveric skin shows that the type of skin preparation can erase the mark used for surgical site identification. Erasure of the mark presents the surgeon with difficulty in performing the site identification. Any error or lack of visualization of the site marking could lead to catastrophic wrong site surgery.. The investigators hypothesis is that chlorhexidine based skin preparation solutions erase site marking in comparison to iodine based skin preparation solutions. The investigators intend to ...
Bichloride of Mercury is used for the disinfection of the hands and skin and for the irrigation of wounds. Biniodid of mercury is extensively employed and in the same strengths as the bichloride. It is, however, a more powerful germicide, while being less irritative, and neither forms a mercuric albuminate nor tarnishes metal instruments.. Carbolic Acid. This acid is derived from coal tar, and although known as early as 1834 as the first antiseptic recommended and used by Lister, is not so popular since the discovery that bichloride of mercury possesses more germicidal action.. Gangrene of the skin and subjacent tissues has often been traced to the long continued use of dilute solutions of carbolic acid or of ointments containing small quantities of the drug. Gangrene of the fingers and toes is by no means infrequent as a consequence of its use. Another condition frequently seen is the systemic poisoning through absorption. One of the first symptoms noticed from such absorption is irritation of ...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect of two strategies of antibiotic use (mixing vs. cycling) on the acquisition of resistant microorganisms, infections and other clinical outcomes. METHODS: Prospective cohort study in an 8-bed intensive care unit during 35- months in which a mixing-cycling policy of antipseudomonal beta-lactams (meropenem, ceftazidime/piperacillin-tazobactam) and fluoroquinolones was operative. Nasopharyngeal and rectal swabs and respiratory secretions were obtained within 48h of admission and thrice weekly thereafter. Target microorganisms included methicillin-resistant S. aureus, vancomycin-resistant enterococci, third-generation cephalosporin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae and non-fermenters. RESULTS: A total of 409 (42%) patients were included in mixing and 560 (58%) in cycling. Exposure to ceftazidime/piperacillin-tazobactam and fluoroquinolones was significantly higher in mixing while exposure to meropenem was higher in cycling, although overall use of antipseudomonals was not ...

Studies have shown that even with standard hand-scrubbing procedures, surgical-site infections with bacteria from operating room personnel occur all too often. These infections result in higher costs and morbidity. Parienti and colleagues compared two preoperative-antisepsis protocols to determine their effects on surgical-site infection rates.. The study lasted for 16 months and included surgical services in six hospitals in France (three teaching, three nonteaching). Surgical teams were randomized to two antisepsis protocols. The traditional hand-scrub consisted of a five-minute scrub with 4 percent povidone iodine or 4 percent chlorhexidine gluconate. The hand-rub protocol consisted of a one-minute wash with nonantiseptic soap followed by a five-minute rub with at least 5 mL of a 75 percent aqueous alcohol solution. Surgical-site infections were diagnosed by a surgeon, an infectious-disease specialist, or a hygiene specialist. Surgeries that were considered contaminated or dirty and those ...

Control of microorganisms by physical and chemical agents frequently used terms Sterilization: the process by which all living cells, viable spores, virus, and viroids are either destroyed or removed from an object or habitat. Disinfection: the killing, inhibition, or removal of microorganisms that may cause disease. Sanitization: the microbial population is reduced to levels that are considered safe by public health standards. Antisepsis: the prevention of infection or sepsis -cide: kill; -static: stop germicide: kill pathogens but not necessarily endospores. Bactericide; fungicide; algicide; viricide; bacteriostatic; fungistatic
The opportunity for medical practices to progress was great. The treating of antisepsis, using anaesthesia, research in bacteriology and testing the newly developed X-ray technology were among the few progressions that took place. The ground was uncontaminated and was nearly bacteria-free. Bacteriological examinations proved that all pyogenic organisms - which cause pus and thereby infections - were only found close to dwellings and not found in the veld. This reduced wound infections and coupled with the very little rain and hot sun helped the wounded soldiers to heal. However, more than half of the British casualties in the Boer War were not by enemy action, but rather caused by illness, especially typhoid fever.. ...
Indeed, the history of cancer is also the history of medicine. As other human diseases were conquered by vaccination (18th century), antisepsis (19th century), and modern pharmaceuticals (20th century), cancer remained resistant to the primitive onslaughts of early medicine. The ancients knew just enough about cancer to pronounce it incurable, and only recently have we discovered enough about cancer biology to mount a direct attack against it.. [...]. Dr. Mukherjee has written a remarkable book about a remarkable disease.

Surgical site infections (SSI) are one of the most common complications in the post-operative patient, and the second most common health care associated infection overall. It is estimated that there are between 500 thousand and 1.1 million surgical site infections in the United States each year. Given the magnitude of the problem, prevention of surgical site infections is a major goal of peri-operative care. However, skin preparation prior to surgery has not been as rigorously examined. The primary objective of this study is to compare the efficacy of two FDA approved, popular peri-operative skin preparations 2% chlorhexidine gluconate / 70% isopropyl alcohol to Iodine Povacrylex [0.7% available Iodine] / 74% Isopropyl Alcohol in the prevention of superficial surgical site infection. Male and female patients, age 18 years and older undergoing elective colorectal surgical procedures involving a laparotomy will be enrolled. These patients are at high risk of SSI. Eligible patients will be assessed ...
Juleps Glycolic Hand Scrub has the "double exfoliating action of finely milled natural apricot seeds plus glycolic acid". This scrub has a gel like base with a fair amount of apricot seeds in it. Julep suggests using a quarter sized amount of their hand scrub to exfoliate damp hands, but I feel like I need much less than that. This scrub is kinda similar to the St. Ives Apricot Scrub in the that it feels. Juleps scrub is fairly harsh, but not irritating. This scrub really softens the skin and removes any dry bits you may have. Juleps Glycolic Hand Scrub is a nice treat at the end of a work day thats been rough on your hands. This hand scrub is a great companion for Juleps Rock Star Hand Cream. I got curious about using this scrub on my face, since Julep half suggests it, so I tried it a few times and didnt really notice much of an improvement in my skin, but there was a pleasant tingle afterwards to let me know that the glycolic acid was working. Julep warns that glycolic acid can cause ...

Determining whether a positive blood culture represents contamination at the time of collection or a true bloodstream infection is a common, time-consuming problem for physicians and clinical microbiologists. Contamination rates for routine blood cultures are estimated to range from 0.6% to more than 6% of all cultures, potentially resulting in unnecessary hospital admissions, prolonged length of stay, increased laboratory costs, and inappropriate use of antimicrobial therapy (1). False-positive blood cultures may increase laboratory costs by about 20% and are associated with a 39% increase in intravenous antibiotic charges (2); 1 university-affiliated hospital estimated the annualized cost of 6% contaminated blood cultures to be $1.4 to $1.8 million, with an additional 1450 to 2200 extra hospital days per year (3). Ideally, contamination rates should be less than 3% (4 ...
Background: The New Zealand (NZ) SSI Improvement Programme began in 2013 and has prospectively collected data on hip and knee arthroplasties performed in the 20 District Health Board hospitals. The data base was analysed to determine risk factors for surgical site infections (SSI) in hip and knee arthroplasties. Methods: Data captured included information on the patient (sex, age, height, weight and BMI), procedure (antimicrobial prophylaxis and skin antisepsis) and SSI. The CDC NHSN definitions for SSI were used. All patients were followed for 90 days. Only SSI occurring during the initial admission or resulting in readmission were included. Results: ...

Control of infection in the surgical intensive care unit demands unfailing attention to three distinct areas: a) The bacteria responsible may be endogenous or exogenous. The effects of the former can be limited by careful surgical techniques and judicious use of antibiotics, of the latter by the practice of asepsis and antisepsis, essentially of scrupulous cleanliness. b) The environment of infection concerns the support of natural barriers to infection (notably the integrity of the skin and the adequate drainage of the pulmonary system), and the sterility and appropriate care and use of the many invasive devices currently available. c) The patients natural defence mechanisms show considerable variation, and those at increased risk can be detected by skin-testing with a number of antigens as well as by recognized clinical features. It is in these patients with anergy and abnormal natural defences that total parenteral nutrition can be of the greatest value.
Here it goes again. Doctors are out of a job because of _____ (fill in the blank with antisepsis, antibiotics, vitamins, lasers, robots, etc). Now, its the Internet.. A recent newspaper article discussed that 60% of Americans and 70-90% of Europeans now seek health information online. Especially impressive is the number of older individuals, or "silver surfers" that find themselves there looking for help. With this powerful informational tool in their hands, the article raised the issue of whether empowered patients will make doctors extinct.. After reading the article, I wrote an Op-Ed piece to the paper, but never saw it published. Just to get it off my chest, I present it here:. Sir, Ms. Bird has absolutely hit the nail on the head when discussing the fact that todays patients are truly educated consumers. In my mens health practice, I routinely see patients who have the latest published paper on their condition tucked under their arms as they sit in front of me at the visit. Kudos to ...

Antiseptics such as chlorhexidine gluconate and triclosan are widely used in healthcare settings for both skin antisepsis and decolonisation of Staphylococcus aureus. We determined the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 198 methicillin susceptible and resistant Staphylococcus aureus clinical isolates to both chlorhexidine and triclosan using an agar dilution method. Of these, 10% (19/198) showed a raised MIC to chlorhexidine and 3% (6/198) showed an elevated MIC to triclosan. The multilocus sequence type (MLST) of each isolate was predicted using a binary method, and although ST93-MRSA-IV was the most common, ST22-MRSA-IV was shown to have statistically higher chlorhexidine MIC values compared with non ST22-MRSA-IV isolates (z = -8 ...
In a group of 50 randomly selected case-matched patients from 1999, the positive blood cultures were concomitant with fever in 98%, intravenous phlebitis in 44%, and recurrent bacteremia in 20%. Fever disappeared approximately 6 hours after intravenous catheter removal. Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism revealed strain homogeneity in patient, water, and alcohol isolates. Contaminated tap water had been used to dilute alcohol for skin antisepsis and for decontamination of the caps of heparin vials. Only sporadic cases directly attributable to breach of protocol were reported after single-use alcohol swabs were substituted ...

Because of the political environment in Germany at this time, many Germans were emigrating, especially to America. In 1847 Herff helped organize a group composed mainly of university-educated professionals, Die Vierziger (the Fortyqv), to found an idealistic commune in Texas. The commune was named Bettinaqv and was located on the Llano River near what is now Castell. The enthusiastic settlers were ill prepared to cope with stern frontier realities, however, and within eighteen months the commune failed. Herff returned to Germany convinced that Texas would be his ultimate home. He married Mathilde Kungel Hoeffer in 1849. He rejoined the military, and his successes in treating battle casualties were attributed to his dexterity and his scrupulous attention to cleanliness (prior to antisepsis), which resulted in low infection rates. He returned to Texas, became a citizen, and dropped the nobility title "von" from his name. He and his wife settled briefly in New Braunfels, then moved in 1850 to San ...

For adult ICU patients, this meta-analysis was rather unhelpful. Only two studies may be directly comparable to the generic ICU population and had low baseline CRBSI rates. However, both of these publications were by the same group with different preparations of chlorhexidine dressings. In one study, the initial skin preparation was either alcoholic chlorhexidine or alcoholic povidone- iodine based but, no subgroup analysis was made to differentiate any difference between these two skin preparations. Other study only used alcoholic providone-iodine based skin preparation ...

Abstract: Abstract Background: Community-acquired complicated intraabdominal infections (cIAIs) present problems for clinicians and have substantial impact on hospital resources. Because of the polymicrobial nature of these infections, successful management of cIAIs depends on timely and appropriate use of antisepsis and antiinfective strategies. Methods: The literature pertinent to this article was reviewed. Results: The Surgical Infection Society and the Infectious Disease Society of America guidelines recommend a variety of single and combined antimicrobial therapies, including fluoroquinolone therapy, for prophylactic and definitive treatment of cIAIs with different severities. Moxifloxacin, a fluoroquinolone, demonstrates a broad spectrum of antimicrobial (including anaerobic) activity, good tissue penetration into the gastrointestinal tract, and a good tolerability profile. Clinical data also have demonstrated that moxifloxacin is effective as monotherapy for patients with cIAIs. This ...
Fifty years ago childhood diseasesâ€"diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles and whooping cough â€" were exacting terrible tolls. The doctors were nearly powerless. They had to let the diseases run their courses, keeping the patients as comfortable as possible. If children escaped these dread diseases, there was practically everything else in the book ready to ambush fhem before they grew up. The average age of adults dying in 1902 was only 30. Today this has been advanced to nearly 70!. Tuberculosis, malaria, pneumonia, syphilis, typhoid fever, typhus fever, diabetes, pernicious anemia, meningitis and cancer yearly claimed millions of victims even in "civilized" countries. Methods of antisepsis were not practiced as they are today; many patients died from infections contracted at the operating table; many died from shock.. Blood transfusion was almost unknown until 1912 and it was much later before it was generally practiced. Of course, such refinements as the matching of blood were little ...

Greetings to my colleagues! We are looking for information on the human resources (labor hrs and type of staff) required to complete a project that will: --test and install equipment to monitor and control IPA concentrations used for drying (rather than fill-and-dump on a calendar schedule) --replace IPA drying with hot deionized water and turbulent air Facilities are in medical device manufacturing. Any case studies we can use to help staff draft their proposals to general managers would be much appreciated. This is actually an interesting story of how integration of environmental effects with product and process design finally starts to change a company after 5+ yrs of efforts, with part of the original impetus being a state-funded grant program to support DfE. Also a great example of how EHS costs can be a terrible indicator of project value. In this case, EHS drivers total about $25,000/facility, but materials use and productivity drivers 10x-20x that amount, annually. --Terry Foecke ...

Indistinct chlorhexidine (circled) still exists in many hospitals despite almost 500 front line staff signing a petition to have it banned.. This completely unnecessary hazard has lead to the death and morbidity of many patients throughout the world (see here)..

There is considerable discussion surrounding whether advanced hospitals provide better childbirth care than local community hospitals. This study examines the effect of shifting childbirth services from advanced hospitals (i.e., medical centers and regional hospitals) to local community hospitals (i.e., clinics and district hospitals). The sample population was tracked over a seven-year period, which includes the four months of the 2003 severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic in Taiwan. During the SARS epidemic, pregnant women avoided using maternity services in advanced hospitals. Concerns have been raised about maintaining the quality of maternity care with increased demands on childbirth services in local community hospitals. In this study, we analyzed the impact of shifting maternity services among hospitals of different levels on neonatal mortality and maternal deaths. A population-based study was conducted using data from Taiwans National Health Insurance annual statistics of monthly
TY - JOUR. T1 - Advances in the Diagnosis and Management of Central Venous Access Device Infections in Children. AU - Bowan, Asha. AU - Carapetis, Jonathan. PY - 2011. Y1 - 2011. N2 - Infection is a well-known complication of central venous access device (CVAD) use, with an incidence of 3-6 bloodstream infections per 1,000 catheter days in children. Prevention of CVAD infections has improved with new strategies including the use of chlorhexidine antisepsis, bundles, maximal sterile barriers for insertion, prophylactic locks, antibiotic impregnated catheters and tunnelling of long-term devices. Despite these strategies, catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) continue to be an important health problem. New approaches to diagnosis include differential time to positivity and quantification of blood cultures and molecular diagnostics. The management of CRBSIs includes techniques for line salvage including ethanol, antibiotic, hydrochloric acid, taurolidine and urokinase locks. When these ...
It has been estimated that every year about 50 000 patients in the United States develop nosocomial infections related to indwelling vascular catheters, primarily central venous and arterial catheters (1). These infections are an important problem in terms of both morbidity and health care costs. Povidone-iodine is a potent antiseptic agent that is widely used for skin preparation during vascular catheter insertion and dressing changes. Mimoz and colleagues convincingly show that, compared with povidone-iodine, a chlorhexidine-based antiseptic solution decreased the rate of catheter colonization and catheter-related infection. Their results reveal that the overall decrease in colonization and infection in patients in the chlorhexidine group was caused by a reduction in the number of gram-positive organisms. However, among patients with gram-negative isolates, more instances of colonization and infection occurred in the chlorhexidine group than in the povidone-iodine group. Although the latter ...

Introduction Alcohols, including ethanol and isopropyl alcohol, are used in clinical practice for disinfection and infection prevention. Recent studies, however, demonstrate that alcohols may enhance biofilm production in Staphylococci. Methods We quantified biofilm formation in the presence of ethanol and isopropyl alcohol in six different, well-characterized strains of Staphylococcus epidermidis and Staphylococcus aureus. After 24 h of biofilm development, each strain was exposed to normal saline (NS), ethanol, or isopropyl alcohol (40%, 60%, 80% and 95%) for additional 24 h incubation. Adherent biofilms were stained and optical density was determined. Viability of strains was also determined after alcohol exposure. Results Ethanol increased biofilm formation in all six strains compared to normal saline (p | 0.05). There was increased biofilm formation with increasing ethanol concentration. Isopropyl alcohol also increased biofilm formation with increasing alcohol concentration in all six strains (p
We carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized trials to explore the effectiveness of oral chlorhexidine on nosocomial pneumonia, causative bacteria, and mortality. PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Register of Controlled Trials were searched for randomized trials in critically ill patients receiving oral chlorhexidine. Odds ratios (OR) were pooled with the random effects model. Twenty-two randomized trials including 4277 patients were identified. Chlorhexidine significantly reduced the incidence of nosocomial pneumonia (OR 0.66; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.51-0.85) and ventilator-associated pneumonia (OR 0.68, 95% CI 0.53-0.87). There was a significant reduction of nosocomial pneumonia due to both Gram-positive (OR 0.41; 95% CI 0.19-0.85) and Gram-negative (OR 0.68; 95% CI 0.51-0.90) bacteria, but only pneumonia due to "normal" flora (OR 0.51; 95% CI 0.33-0.80). The subgroup analysis revealed a significant benefit of chlorhexidine on nosocomial pneumonia in surgical ...
Antiseptics, disinfectants, and sterilants are a diverse group of germicides used to prevent the transmission of microorganisms to patients (Table 104-1). Although these terms are sometimes used interchangeably and some of these xenobiotics are used for both antisepsis and disinfection, the distinguishing characteristics between the groups are important to emphasize. An antiseptic is a chemical that is applied to living tissue to kill or inhibit microorganisms. Iodophors, chlorhexidine, and the alcohols (ethanol and isopropanol) are commonly used antiseptics. A disinfectant is a chemical that is applied to inanimate objects to kill microorganisms. Bleach (sodium hypochlorite), phenolic compounds, formaldehyde, hydrogen peroxide liquid, ortho-phthalaldehyde, and quaternary ammonium compounds are examples of currently used disinfectants. Neither antiseptics nor disinfectants have complete sporicidal activity. A sterilant is a chemical that is applied to inanimate objects to kill all microorganisms ...
