Surgical site infection caused by multi resistant gram positive and gram negative bacteria are an increasing problem in veterinary surgery.
The introduction of antimicrobials had a profound effect on patient’s morbidity and mortality and lead us into an era of great optimism. However, bacteria have developed resistance against antibiotics and prevention of infections is of paramount importance as it becomes more difficult to cure infections.
Hygienic and surgical hand disinfection can significantly reduce the risk of infection.
Sterillium® is Europe’s No. 1 alcohol based hand disinfectant. It provides a very high efficacy against microorganisms, including multi resistant bacteria. For surgical hand disinfection an application time of only 90 seconds is required. In contrast to traditional scrub methods, Sterillium® offers a significant improvement in skin conditions which subsequently will result in better compliance in hand hygiene.
