“PDI, a leader in infection prevention products and solutions, announced the launch of its Profend Nasal Decolonization Kit, the first in a suite of Profend products designed to help prevent surgical site infections (SSIs) and other hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). 

Profend nasal swabsticks are pre-saturated with 10 percent Povidone-iodine to deliver a fast time to full efficacy against a leading risk factor for SSIs, S. aureus and methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) in patient’s noses, without the risk of antibiotic resistance. At any given time, about 30 percent of the adult population is nasally colonized, according to a study from the Journal of Clinical Microbiology.

The Profend Nasal Decolonization Kit uses a unique “snap and swab” design that simplifies the decolonization process, while offering convenience for clinicians and supporting patient comfort. Clinician-applied for assured treatment compliance, the swabstick’s dry-handle design minimizes mess during application, while the small nasal swab offers easy application and enhanced comfort for patients.”
