Guideline implementation: preoperative patient skin antisepsis.
TLDR
Key points include the need for the patient to take a preoperative bath or shower and theneed for perioperative personnel to manage hair at the surgical site, select a safe and effective antiseptic for the individual patient, perform a safe preoperative surgical site prep, and appropriately store skin antiseptics. Expand
Perioperative Strategies for Surgical Site Infection Prevention
TLDR
The causes of surgical site infections are explored, such as modifiable and nonmodifiable patient factors and preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative procedural factors, and some of the specific recommended strategies related to the prevention of SSIs that perioperative nurses can initiate in their workplace are discussed. Expand
Prevention of Infection After Gynecologic Procedures
Surgical site infection remains the most common complication of gynecologic procedures. Reducing surgical site infections has become a priority in the United States as part of a strong nationalExpand
To bathe or not to bathe with chlorhexidine gluconate: is it time to take a stand for preadmission bathing and cleansing?
TLDR
Historically, this practice has been endorsed by national and international organizations, such as the Hospital Infection Control Practice Advisory Committee and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as a component of a broader strategy to reduce SSIs. Expand
Patient Care Interventions to Reduce the Risk of Surgical Site Infections.
TLDR
Evidence-based strategies to reduce SSIs have been available for years and must be implemented in more health care facilities. Expand

The bariatric patient: an overview of perioperative care.
TLDR
It is vital that thePerioperative nurse accurately assesses the patient undergoing bariatric surgery to provide safe and appropriate nursing interventions during the perioperative continuum of care. Expand
Comparison of olanexidine versus povidone-iodine for preventing surgical site infection in gastrointestinal surgery: study protocol for a multicentre, single-blind, randomised controlled clinical trial
TLDR
A multicentre, randomised controlled clinical trial for comparing two treatments, that is, 1.5% olanexidine or 10% povidone-iodine, for surgical skin preparation to prevent SSI in clean-contaminated gastrointestinal surgeries with surgical wounds. Expand
Aqueous olanexidine versus aqueous povidone-iodine for surgical skin antisepsis on the incidence of surgical site infections after clean-contaminated surgery: a multicentre, prospective, blinded-endpoint, randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
Olanexidine significantly reduced the occurrence of overall SSI and superficial incisional SSI compared with aqueous povidone-iodine in clean-contaminated surgery. Expand

TLDR
The main types of antiseptic skin preparation are focused on, highlighting each product's activity and the relevant considerations for choosing the appropriate product for each patient. Expand
A fresh look at preoperative body washing
TLDR
A randomised trial with 60 participants to compare the effect of soap and two antiseptic washing products on colony forming units (CFUs) for up to six hours found chlorhexidine gluconate and octenidine were significantly more effective than soap in reducing CFUs in the underarm, and chlor hexidine was significantly moreeffective than soapIn reducing CF Units in the groin. Expand
Evidence for using chlorhexidine gluconate preoperative cleansing to reduce the risk of surgical site infection.
TLDR
Evidence-based scientific and clinical studies support two types of CHG application using a standardized, timed process before hospital admission as an effective strategy for reducing the risk of postoperative surgical site infection. Expand
Preoperative Skin Antiseptic Preparations for Preventing Surgical Site Infections: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The results indicated that presurgical antiseptic showering is effective for reducing skin flora and may reduce SSI rates, and large, well-conducted randomized controlled trials with consistent protocols comparing agents in the same bases are needed to provide unequivocal evidence on the effectiveness of one antISEptic preparation over another for the prevention of SSIs. Expand
Pre-admission cutaneous chlorhexidine preparation reduces surgical site infections in total hip arthroplasty.
TLDR
A statistically significant lower incidence of infections occurred in patients who used the chlorhexidine cloths when compared to patients undergoing in-hospital perioperative skin preparation only, confirming prior studies suggesting this as an effective method to prevent periprosthetic hip arthroplasty infections. Expand
Preoperative skin preparation of cardiac patients.
TLDR
The incidence of infection was lower in the two groups of patients who were prepped with insoluble iodine, indicating that the type of surgical skin prep could affect whether patients develop surgical site infections. Expand
Accidental Burns During Surgery
TLDR
Early patient examination and immediate involvement of plastic and burn surgeons may prevent further complications or ease handling after the occurrence of intraoperative burns, and recommendations for prevention and procedures to follow after their occurrence are provided. Expand
Advance pre-operative chlorhexidine reduces the incidence of surgical site infections in knee arthroplasty
TLDR
Patient-directed skin disinfection using chlorhexidine gluconate-impregnated cloths the evening before, and the morning of, elective knee arthroplasty appeared to effectively reduce the incidence of surgical site infection when compared to patients who underwent in-hospital skin preparation only.

TLDR
It is suggested that cholorhexdine with alcohol may be the most effective in terms of reducing SSI, and the factors associated with choosing the antiseptic skin agent, such as patients' allergies, skin condition and environmental risk are taken into account. Expand
