Handshield 2



HANDSHIELD 2 provides the broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity. It has a high persistent effect providing protection for a longer duration and applied in a fraction of time causing rapid skin disinfection.



Surgical Site Infection (SSI)
Patient Skin is a major source of pathogens that cause Surgical Site Infection, optimization of preoperative skin antisepsis may decrease post-operative infections. Surgical site infection occurs in 300,000 to 500,000 patients who undergo surgery in the United States each year, since the patient’s skin is a major source of pathogens; it is conceivable that improving skin antisepsis would decrease surgical site infection.

Role of Chlorhexidine Gluconate and Ethyl-Alcohol

The Study published in THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL of MEDICINE concludes that Preoperative cleaning of the patient’s skin with Chlorhexidine-alcohol is superior to cleansing with povidone-iodine for preventing Surgical site infection after cleaning contaminated surgery.
