85. Effect of daily chlorhexidine bathing on hospital-acquired infection. (Full text)

Effect of daily chlorhexidine bathing on hospital-acquired infection. Results of previous single-center, observational studies suggest that daily bathing of patients with chlorhexidine may prevent hospital-acquired bloodstream infections and the acquisition of multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs).We conducted a multicenter, cluster-randomized, nonblinded crossover trial to evaluate the effect of daily bathing with chlorhexidine-impregnated washcloths on the acquisition of MDROs (...) and the incidence of hospital-acquired bloodstream infections. Nine intensive care and bone marrow transplantation units in six hospitals were randomly assigned to bathe patients either with no-rinse 2% chlorhexidine-impregnated washcloths or with nonantimicrobial washcloths for a 6-month period, exchanged for the alternate product during the subsequent 6 months. The incidence rates of acquisition of MDROs and the rates of hospital-acquired bloodstream infections were compared between the two periods by means

10% chlorhexidine varnish did not reduce caries in an adult population. A multi-centre, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomised clinical trial involving 983 adults (aged 18-80 years old).The test group received chlorhexidine diacetate 10% weight per volume (w/v) dental coating and the control group received a placebo coating. Coatings were applied weekly for four weeks and a fifth time six months later.The Pitts and Fyffe taxonomy was used to measure caries progression or reversal, which (...) identifies three stages of lesion on coronal surfaces. The primary outcome was the total net increment in D(1-2)FS; secondary outcomes included the cumulative net D(1-2)FS increment and the total crude D(1-2)FS increment and the cumulative crude D(1-2)FS increment.No significant difference was seen between the treatment and placebo groups over a 13 month study period.Ten percent chlorhexidine diacetate coating did not show a reduction in caries in an adult population.
