BETASEPT Surgical Scrub (chlorhexidine gluconate) is an antiseptic/antimicrobial skin cleanser for hand scrubbing or washing by operating room personnel, for hand-washing by medical personnel, for pre-operative skin preparation, and for skin wound and general skin cleansing.
BETASEPT Surgical Scrub provides rapid bactericidal action and has a persistent antimicrobial effect against a wide range of microorganisms.
Surgical Hand Scrub:
Wet hands and forearms with water. Scrub for 3 minutes with about 5 mL of BETASEPT Surgical Scrub and a wet brush, paying particular attention to the nails, cuticles and interdigital spaces. A separate nail cleaner may be used. Rinse thoroughly. Wash for an additional 3 minutes with 5 mL of BETASEPT Surgical Scrub and rinse under running water. Dry thoroughly.
Wet hands with water. Dispense about 5 mL of BETASEPT Surgical Scrub into cupped hands and wash in a vigorous manner for 15 seconds. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Apply BETASEPT Surgical Scrub liberally to surgical site and swab for at least 2 minutes. Dry with a sterile towel. Repeat procedure for an additional 2 minutes and again dry with a sterile towel.
Wounds which involve more than the superficial layers of the skin should not be routinely treated with BETASEPT Surgical Scrub. BETASEPT Surgical Scrub should not be used for repeated general skin cleansing of large body areas except in those patients whose underlying condition makes it necessary to reduce the bacterial population of the skin. To use, thoroughly rinse the area to be cleansed with water. Apply the minimum amount of BETASEPT Surgical Scrub necessary to cover the skin or wound area and wash gently. Rinse again thoroughly.
