Videne Surgical Scrub is a broad-spectrum antiseptic for topical use. It is indicated for pre-operative hand disinfection by the surgical team, or for disinfecting the site of incision prior to elective surgery.
Pre-operative surgical scrub - after first wetting the hands and arms with water, approximately 3.5ml of Videne Surgical Scrub is applied and rubbed thoroughly on to these areas. A brush may be used to scrub the nails. A little water is added to develop a lather and finally this must be rinsed off with running water.
Pre-operative skin preparation - the site of incision should be washed with Videne Surgical Scrub two or three times a day prior to the operation. Immediately before surgery the skin should be moistened with water, Videne Surgical Scrub applied and rubbed thoroughly into the area for several minutes. A sterile gauze swab is used to develop a lather which must be finally rinsed off with water.
Only water should be used to dilute Videne Surgical Scrub.
