Guidelines on the Perioperative Management of Patients with Suspected or Proven Hypersensitivity to Chlorhexidine Background Paper PS60 BP 2016 Page 1 PS60 BP 2016 Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) Guidelines on the Perioperative Management of Patients with Suspected or Proven Hypersensitivity to Chlorhexidine Background Paper 1. PURPOSE The purpose of PS60 Guidelines on the Perioperative Management of Patients with Suspected or Proven Hypersensitivity to Chlorhexidine (...) is to prevent recurrent inadvertent exposure and subsequent hypersensitivity reaction in these patients. The ANZCA Anaesthetic Allergy Subcommittee was convened in 2012 and works closely with the Australian and New Zealand Anaesthetic Allergy Group (ANZAAG). The subcommittee identified that as chlorhexidine was a very common hidden agent in the theatre environment and it has an increasing frequency of induced anaphylaxis, it warranted a policy in its own right. PS60 has been developed as ‘Guidelines

Chlorhexidine treatment for the prevention of dental caries in children and adolescents. Dental caries (tooth decay) is a common disease that is preventable by reducing the dietary intake of free sugars and using topical sodium fluoride products. An antibacterial agent known as chlorhexidine may also help prevent caries. A number of over-the-counter and professionally administered chlorhexidine-based preparations are available in a variety of formulations and in a range of strengths. Although (...) previous reviews have concluded that some formulations of chlorhexidine may be effective in inhibiting the progression of established caries in children, there is currently a lack of evidence to either claim or refute a benefit for its use in preventing dental caries.To assess the effects of chlorhexidine-containing oral products (toothpastes, mouthrinses, varnishes, gels, gums and sprays) on the prevention of dental caries in children and adolescents.We searched the Cochrane Oral Health Group Trials

59. Vaginal chlorhexidine during labour for preventing maternal and neonatal infections (excluding Group B Streptococcal and HIV). (Full text)

Vaginal chlorhexidine during labour for preventing maternal and neonatal infections (excluding Group B Streptococcal and HIV). The incidence of chorioamnionitis occurs in between eight and 12 women for every 1000 live births and 96% of cases of chorioamnionitis are due to ascending infection. Following spontaneous vaginal delivery, 1% to 4% of women develop postpartum endometritis. The incidence of neonatal sepsis is 0.5% to 1% of all infants born. Maternal vaginal bacteria are the main agents (...) for these infections. It is reasonable to speculate that prevention of maternal and neonatal infections might be possible by washing the vagina and cervix with an antibacterial agent for all women during labour. Chlorhexidine belongs to the class of compounds known as the bis-biguanides. Chlorhexidine has antibacterial action against a wide range of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, including those implicated in peripartal infections.To evaluate the effectiveness and side effects of chlorhexidine vaginal douching
