  • Do I need to wipe off the Prevantics® antiseptic liquid from the skin after application?

    Show Answer

    No. Prevantics contains both 3.15% Chlorhexidine Gluconate and 70% Isopropyl Alcohol which should be left on the skin to provide continued antimicrobial activity.

  • What are considered "dry" sites and "wet" sites?

    Show Answer

    Dry sites are areas where there are no skin folds, such as the abdomen, back and forearm, and no evidence of moisture caused by diaphoresis. Wet sites are areas with skin folds, such as the groin area, under arms, and under breasts, as well as areas that may be moist due to diaphoresis.

  • What is the difference between an occlusive and semi-occlusive dressing?

    Show Answer

    An 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.

  • Why are Prevantics® Skin Antiseptics applied using back and forth strokes?

    Show Answer

    The back and forth strokes provide friction which allows for deeper penetration of the antiseptic into the cracks and fissures of the skin in the epidermis.

  • Some PDI products state "store at room temperature." What is the definition of room temperature?

    Show Answer

    For our EPA-regulated products, such as Sani-Cloth® and Sani-Prime™ brand products, room temperature is defined as an average temperature of 25◦ C (77◦ F) and within a temperature range of 15◦ C to 30◦ C (59◦ F to 86◦ F). For our FDA-regulated products, such as Prevantics® brand products, “controlled room temperature” indicates a temperature maintained thermostatically that encompasses the usual customary working environment of 20◦ C to 25◦ C (68◦ F to 77◦ F). SOURCE: USP 41-NF 36 General Notices and Requirements (August 1, 2013 First Supplements) Section 10.30.50. “Room Temperature” indicates the temperature prevailing in a working area. Section 10.30.60.
