Chlorhexidine is a highly effective cationic chemopreventive agent with a broad spectrum of activity against gm + ve and gmve bacteria. Depending on its concentration, it is both bacteriostatic and bactericidal. The bactericidal effect achieved at high concentrations is due to the combination of cations with negatively charged bacterial cell walls and microbial complexes. The antibacterial effect is achieved at low concentrations, which leads to changes in the osmotic balance of bacterial cells and the leakage of potassium and phosphorus.


Dosage & Administration of Hexisol 50 ml

Pre-operative surgical hand disinfection: Dispense 5 ml of solution and spread thoroughly over both hands and forearms, rubbing vigorously. When dry apply a further 5 ml and repeat the procedure.

Antiseptic hand disinfection on the ward: Dispense 3 ml of solution and spread thoroughly over the hands and wrists rubbing vigorously until dry.

Disinfection of patients skin: Prior to surgery apply the solution to a sterile swab and rub vigorously over the operation site for a minimum of 2 minutes. Chlorhexidine Gluconate is also used for preparation of the skin prior to invasive procedures such as venepuncture.
