New CDC Guidelines for Prevention of Intravascular Catheter-Associated Infections Designate Chlorhexidine Gluconate-Impregnated Sponge as a Category 1B Recommendation Exclusively Based on Evidence Related to BIOPATCH® Protective Disk With CHG
Date:4/1/2011

iate use of chlorhexidine for skin antisepsis, and MSB [maximal sterile barrier precautions]. Category IB." Guidelines also specify "no recommendation is made for other types of chlorhexidine dressings (Unresolved Issue)."

In the United States, approximately 250,000 CLABSIs are estimated to occur each year. CLABSIs are associated with high mortality rates (12-25%), and extended hospital stays, requiring patients to spend an estimated 9-12 additional days in a hospital. According to the CDC, the cost of treating a single episode of CLABSI can range from $34,508 - $56,000. The average cost of the BIOPATCH® Protective Disk with CHG product is approximately $6.

"Our skin provides very effective protection against infection, but when the skin barrier is broken and a catheter is inserted into vascular tissue, the risk of bacteria migrating down the catheter itself or the catheter tract into the bloodstream increases significantly. BIOPATCH® has a unique proprietary design that allows for 360-degree contact with the skin and continuous delivery of CHG around the site of catheter insertion," said William Jarvis, MD, former acting director of the CDC's Hospital Infections Program and the former assistant chief of the National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance (NNIS) system.*

The safety and effectiveness of BIOPATCH® have not been established for children less than 16 years of age. The protective disk is not to be used on premature infants or on patients with a known sensitivity to CHG.

BIOPATCH® is marketed by Ethicon, Inc., a trusted, worldwide leader in surgical care. For over a century, Ethicon has continuously introduced innovations for wound closure, general surgery, wound management, women's health and urology and aesthetic medicine that fulfill the Company's vision: restoration of body and of life.
