Product Description

Aegis CHG Impregnated Foam Discs help reduce risk factors associated with central-line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI).

  • Evidence-based practice standards recommend covering central line catheters with chlorhexidine-containing sponge dressings to help prevent central-line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI)
  • Hydrophilic foam disc is impregnated with chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG)
  • Absorbs exudate and releases CHG for up to seven days; this helps shield the catheter insertion site, while the CHG inhibits or kills bacteria on the dressing's surface
  • Radial slit allows easy placement around the catheter or drain site
  • Indications for use: Absorbs exudate and covers the peri-wound area of a wound caused by vascular and non-vascular percutaneous medical devices
  • Contraindications: CHG-impregnated foam dressings should not be used on premature infants or patients with a known sensitivity to chlorhexidine gluconate
  • Single use only
  • Sterile
