The purpose of the study was to compare the efficacy of 10% povidone-iodine with that of 0.5% chlorhexidine gluconate in 70% isopropyl alcohol for the prevention of peripheral intravenous catheter colonization in neonates. This was a multicenter, nonrandomized prospective study in a tertiary neonatal intensive care setting in which povidone-iodine and chlorhexidine gluconate were each used as antiseptic skin preparations over sequential 6-month periods.
