Do I need to wipe off the Prevantics® antiseptic liquid from the skin after application?Show AnswerNo. Prevantics contains both 3.15% Chlorhexidine Gluconate and 70% Isopropyl Alcohol which should be left on the skin to provide continued antimicrobial activity.
What is the difference between an occlusive and semi-occlusive dressing?Show AnswerAn occlusive dressing is a non-permeable dressing, which means that no air or moisture can penetrate in or out. A semi-occlusive (semi-permeable, transparent) dressing allows the wound to "breathe" (air can penetrate in and out) but at the same time, protects the wound from outside liquids. Commonly used dressings in vascular access are semi-occlusive, transparent dressings.
