BackgroundChlorhexidine is better than povidone iodine for skin preparation before intravascular device insertion or blood culture collection, but it is not known whether chlorhexidine is superior in reducing colonization of continuous epidural catheters. MethodsChildren requiring an epidural catheter for postoperative analgesia longer than 24 h were randomly assigned to receive skin preparation with an alcoholic solution of 0.5% chlorhexidine or an aqueous solution of 10% povidone iodine… Expand
Skin Disinfection before Epidural Catheterization: Comparative Study of Povidone-Iodine versus Chlorhexidine Ethanol
TLDR
The effect of 0.5% chlorhexidine ethanol is not different from that of 10% povidone-iodine in reducing catheter colonization associated with short-term epidural catheter placement. Expand

Background: Chlorhexidine is better than povidoneiodine for skin preparation before intravascular device insertion or blood culture collection, but it is not known whether chlorhexidine is superiorExpand
Is Skin Disinfection With 10% Povidone Iodine Sufficient to Prevent Epidural Needle and Catheter Contamination?
TLDR
The results suggest that despite skin surface disinfection with PI, there is still significant risk for contamination of needles and catheters during epidural catheterization. Expand
A systematic review of effectiveness of disinfectants on skin preparation and dressings in patients receiving epidural analgesia
TLDR
Chlorhexidine could be considered the cutaneous antiseptic of choice prior to epidural insertion, although further studies to confirm this are warranted. Expand
Comparison of Povidone Iodine and DuraPrep, an Iodophor-in-Isopropyl Alcohol Solution, for Skin Disinfection Prior to Epidural Catheter Insertion in Parturients
TLDR
DuraPrep solution was found to provide a greater decrease in the number of positive skin cultures immediately after disinfection, as well as in bacterial regrowth and colonization of the epidural catheters. Expand
Alcohol-based chlorhexidine vs. povidone iodine in reducing skin colonization prior to regional anesthesia procedures.
TLDR
For skin disinfection prior to the neuraxial blockade procedure, theUse of alcohol-based chlorhexidine compared with the use of povidone iodine lowered the incidence of insertion-site-colonization. Expand
Chlorhexidine Versus Povidone Iodine in Bacterial Contamination Rate of Needles Used for Spinal Anesthesia
TLDR
The aim of this prospective trial was to determine if an alcoholic solution of 0.5% chlorhexidine is more effective than an aqueous solution of 10% povidone-iodine at reducing the bacterial contamination rate of spinal needles. Expand

TLDR
4% chlorhexidine or octenidine hydrochlorodine for cutaneous disinfection before insertion of an intravascular device and for post-insertion site care can reduce the catheter related colonization. Expand
Cholorhexidine, octenidine or povidone iodine for catheter-related infections: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
4% chlorhexidine or octenidine hydrochlorodine for cutaneous disinfection before insertion of an intravascular device and for post‑insertion site care can reduce the catheter related colonization. Expand
Bacterial contamination of epidural needles and catheters
TLDR
The incidence of bacterial contamination of the tips of epidural needles and indwelling epidural catheters, and also of disinfected skin at puncture sites, is investigated. Expand

Prospective, randomized trial of two antiseptic solutions for prevention of central venous or arterial catheter colonization and infection in intensive care unit patients.
TLDR
The 4% alcohol-based solution of 0.25% chlorhexidine gluconate and 0.025% benzalkonium chloride was more effective than 10% povidone iodine for insertion site care of short-term central venous and arterial catheters and appeared related to a more efficacious prevention of infections with Gram-positive bacteria. Expand
Bacterial Colonization and Infection Rate of Continuous Epidural Catheters in Children
TLDR
It is observed that, despite bacterial colonization of caudal and lumbar epidural catheters, serious systemic and local infection after short-term epidural analgesia did not occur in this study. Expand
Comparison of 10% povidone-iodine and 0.5% chlorhexidine gluconate for the prevention of peripheral intravenous catheter colonization in neonates: a prospective trial.
TLDR
It is concluded that 0.5% chlorhexidine gluconate in 70% isopropyl alcohol appears to be more efficacious than 10% povidone-iodine for the prevention of peripheral intravenous catheter colonization in neonates. Expand
Prospective randomised trial of povidone-iodine, alcohol, and chlorhexidine for prevention of infection associated with central venous and arterial catheters
TLDR
It is concluded that use of 2% chlorhexidine, rather than 10% povidone-iodine or 70% alcohol, for cutaneous disinfection before insertion of an intravascular device and for post-insertion site care can substantially reduce the incidence of device-related infection. Expand
Use of a chlorhexidine dressing to reduce microbial colonization of epidural catheters.
TLDR
The data suggest that delivery of antiseptic to the catheter wound site reduces catheter colonization with a possible reduction in the risk of epidural catheter-related infection. Expand
Culture of Bacteria From Lumbar and Caudal Epidural Catheters Used for Postoperative Analgesia in Children
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the risk of clinical epidural infection associated with caudal or lumbar postoperative catheters is low, however, the incidence of epidural catheter tip colonization is increased with the caUDal route of insertion, and the bacteria differ from those cultured from the lumbr insertion site. Expand
Human Skin Flora as a Potential Source of Epidural Abscess
TLDR
In a large proportion of patients, isolation of viable organisms from excised skin specimens after disinfection with 10% PVP-I suggests that contamination of the epidural space by the skin flora may be a potential mechanism of epidural infection associated with epidural block. Expand
Chlorhexidine Compared with Povidone-Iodine as Skin Preparation before Blood Culture
TLDR
Whether the use of alcoholic chlorhexidine decreased the rate of blood culture contamination in hospitals in which personnel did not consistently allow antiseptics to act for the recommended time period before collection is examined. Expand
Clinical and Bacteriologic Survey of Epidural Analgesia in Patients in the Intensive Care Unit
TLDR
The risk of epidural analgesia-related infection in patients in the intensive care unit seems to be low, and the presence of two local signs of inflammation is a strong predictor of local and epidural catheter infection. Expand
The Risk of Infection from Epidural Analgesia in Children: A Review of 1620 Cases
TLDR
The risk of epidural infection is quite low in pediatric postoperative patients receiving short-term catheterization, and use of prolonged epidural analgesia in the management of chronic pain in children requires careful monitoring of warning signs of infection. Expand
