108. Economic evaluation of chlorhexidine-impregnated sponges for preventing catheter-related infections in critically ill adults in the Dressing Study (PubMed)

Economic evaluation of chlorhexidine-impregnated sponges for preventing catheter-related infections in critically ill adults in the Dressing Study The randomized two-way factorial Dressing Study (1,636 patients, 28,931 catheter days) showed that a chlorhexidine-impregnated sponge decreased the incidence of major catheter-related infections from 1.4‰ to 0.6‰ catheter days, and that scheduled dressing changes every 7 days was not inferior to scheduled changes every 3 days. Here, we assessed (...) the cost benefits of chlorhexidine-impregnated sponge use.Costs directly related to major catheter-related infections and the costs of chlorhexidine-impregnated sponge and contact dermatitis were calculated prospectively using microcosting methods during the original study. The added length of stay in the intensive care unit due to major catheter-related infection was estimated using the disability model and assuming a cost of $2,118/intensive care unit day. The cost of each strategy was estimated

Topical application of chlorhexidine to neonatal umbilical cords for prevention of omphalitis and neonatal mortality in a rural district of Pakistan: a community-based, cluster-randomised trial. Umbilical cord infection (omphalitis) is a risk factor for neonatal sepsis and mortality in low-resource settings where home deliveries are common.

The effect of cord cleansing with chlorhexidine on neonatal mortality in rural Bangladesh: a community-based, cluster-randomised trial. Up to half of neonatal deaths in high mortality settings are due to infections, many of which can originate through the freshly cut umbilical cord stump. We aimed to assess the effectiveness of two cord-cleansing regimens with the promotion of dry cord care in the prevention of neonatal mortality.We did a community-based, parallel cluster-randomised trial (...) in Sylhet, Bangladesh. We divided the study area into 133 clusters, which were randomly assigned to one of the two chlorhexidine cleansing regimens (single cleansing as soon as possible after birth; daily cleansing for 7 days after birth) or promotion of dry cord care. Randomisation was done by use of a computer-generated sequence, stratified by cluster-specific participation in a previous trial. All livebirths were eligible; those visited within 7 days by a local female village health worker trained
