    1st review

    We use this to prep a lot of patients. It is a lot less messy than iodine and is very easy to apply.

    It's also more effective at killing germs, and poses no problem of allergy to betadyne.

    Surgeons who have adopted ChloraPrep as their surgical prep of choice have experienced demonstrated reductions in surgical site infections.

    Works great for cleaning around the PICC line with just enough "juice"

    Our hospital has just recently switched over to cholahexadene. The cloraprep is a bit messier than Betadine swab sticks, and we find it runny, so we prefer the chlorahexadene prep sticks instead. Use then as Betadine. Unlike Betadine, these are clear on the patients skin and it is hard to see where you are painting. And they are not for use internally like Betadine (I'm thinking cervical prep for biopsies).

    I USE THIS PRODUCT IN THE O.R. FOR NEARLY EVERY PROCEDURE. THE RESEARCH SHOWS IT TO BE THE TOP PERFORMER IN SURGICAL SITE INFECTION PREVENTION; ESPECIALLY IN FOOT AND ANKLE CASES.
