    • Aegis chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG)-impregnated foam discs help reduce risk factors associated with CLABSI; absorbs exudate and releases CHG for up to seven days which helps shield the catheter insertion site while the CHG inhibits or kills bacteria on the dressing's surface
    • Evidence-based practice standards recommend covering central line catheters with chlorhexidine-containing sponge dressings to help prevent central-line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI)1
    • Radial slit allows easy placement around the catheter or drain site
    • Indications for use: Absorbs exudate and covers the peri-wound area of a wound caused by vascular and non-vascular percutaneous medical devices
    • Contraindications: CHG-impregnated foam dressings should not be used on premature infants or patients with a known sensitivity to chlorhexidine gluconate
