Targeted MDRO eradication

Patients testing positive in a microbial screening must be immediately decontaminated. In a targeted or vertical decontamination, the first and most important step consists of focusing on microbial reservoirs over a cycle of 5 days.

Gezielte MRE Sanierung

For this purpose, schülke offers octenidine-containing products that can be ideally combined with one another. Our octenisan® range enables a so-called bundle strategy, as no interactions between various ingredients can occur. This means the highest possible level of safety for the patient, regardless of whether the decontamination is performed by means of skin disinfection with octeniderm® colourless, post-operative wound care with octenilin® wound gel or by wound disinfection with octenisept®.
