Fields of Application
Preoperative Whole-Body washing
Recent studies show that decontaminating whole-body washing, whether preventive in ICUs or before surgery, can significantly contribute to the reduction of infection rates. Studies have shown that nasal colonisation by S. aureus plays a special role in the subsequent infection process. A bundle of several measures can successfully lead to reduction or avoidance of postoperative wound infections.¹
