VIDENE SURGICAL SCRUB (Ecolab)


1. Name Of The Medicinal Product

VIDENE SURGICAL SCRUB

2. Qualitative And Quantitative Composition

Povidone-iodine 7.5% w/w

3. Pharmaceutical Form

Topical solution.

4. Clinical Particulars 4.1 Therapeutic Indications

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.

4.2 Posology And Method Of Administration

Pre-operative surgical scrub - after first wetting the hands and arms with water, approximately 3.5 ml 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 is 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 for at least two days 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 is finally rinsed off with water.

Only water should be used to dilute Videne Surgical Scrub.

There are no special dosage recommendations for children or elderly patients.

4.3 Contraindications

Videne Surgical Scrub must never be administered orally.

4.4 Special Warnings And Precautions For Use

Care should be taken when Videne Surgical Scrub is used on known iodine-sensitive subjects, although such people do not normally react to povidone-iodine.

4.5 Interaction With Other Medicinal Products And Other Forms Of Interaction

None stated.

4.6 Pregnancy And Lactation

Videne Surgical Scrub is not recommended for use during pregnancy because of the possibility of absorption through broken skin and subsequent interference with tests of neonatal thyroid function.

4.7 Effects On Ability To Drive And Use Machines

None stated.

4.8 Undesirable Effects

In very rare instances Videne Surgical Scrub may produce skin reactions in iodine-sensitive subjects. These reactions subside on cessation of treatment.

4.9 Overdose

In cases where Videne Surgical Scrub has been taken orally, gastric lavage with dilute starch mucilage or a 1% solution of sodium thiosulphate must be administered. The electrolyte balance must be corrected and lost fluids replaced.

5. Pharmacological Properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic Properties

Povidone-iodine has antiseptic activity and is used mainly for the treatment of contaminated wounds and pre-operative preparation of skin and mucous membranes. It is considered to be less irritant than iodine.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic Properties

Povidone-iodine is slightly absorbed when applied to the skin. Iodides are excreted mainly in the urine, with smaller amounts appearing in the faeces, saliva and sweat.

5.3 Preclinical Safety Data

Povidone-iodine had a low acute toxicity in both dogs and cats following either oral or intraperitoneal administration. Absorption of iodine through intact skin is low following the application of solutions of povidone-iodine although systemic absorption of iodine is greatly increased if the solutions are applied to broken skin, mucous membranes or are introduced into cavities of the body. At subcutaneous dose levels of up to 75mg/Kg/day, povidone-iodine was non-teratogenic in rabbits following administration to pregnant animals during the period of organogenesis.

Some early in vitro studies indicated a possible mutagenic action for povidone-iodine. However, a number of later studies, using in vitro and in vivo test systems, do not indicate a significant level of mutagenic/genotoxic activity for povidone-iodine. Although conflicting data have been published, there is no convincing evidence to suggest that povidone-iodine adversely affects wound healing. Concentration of 0.05 and 0.5% povidone-iodine did not cause significant ocular damage when administered into the vitreous cavities of rabbits' eyes. There is some evidence to suggest that povidone-iodine-containing solutions applied to the round window of the chinchilla ear could result in high frequency hearing loss.

Betadine Surgical Scrub (Molnlycke Health Care )


1. Name Of The Medicinal Product

Betadine Surgical Scrub.

2. Qualitative And Quantitative Composition

Povidone Iodine 7.5% w/v.

3. Pharmaceutical Form

Surgical scrub.

4. Clinical Particulars 4.1 Therapeutic Indications

For use as an antiseptic cleanser for pre-operative scrubbing and washing by surgeons and theatre staff, and pre-operative preparation of patients' skin.

4.2 Posology And Method Of Administration

For topical administration. Adults, the elderly and children: Apply full strength as a pre-operative antiseptic skin cleanser. Povidone iodine is not recommended for regular use in neonates and is contraindicated in very low birth weight infants (below 1500 grams).

4.3 Contraindications

Known or suspected iodine hypersensitivity. Regular use is contraindicated in patients and users with thyroid disorders (in particular nodular colloid goitre, endemic goitre and Hashimoto's thyroiditis).

4.4 Special Warnings And Precautions For Use

Special caution is needed when regular applications to broken skin are made to patients with pre-existing renal insufficiency. Regular use should be avoided in patients on concurrent lithium therapy.

4.5 Interaction With Other Medicinal Products And Other Forms Of Interaction

Absorption of iodine from povidone iodine through either intact or damaged skin may interfere with thyroid function tests. Contamination with povidone iodine of several types of tests for the detection of occult blood in faeces or blood in urine may produce false-positive results.

4.6 Pregnancy And Lactation

Regular use of povidone iodine should be avoided in pregnant or lactating women as absorbed iodine can cross the placental barrier and can be secreted into breast milk. Although no adverse effects have been reported from limited use, caution should be recommended and therapeutic benefit must be balanced against possible effects of the absorption on foetal thyroid function and development.

4.7 Effects On Ability To Drive And Use Machines

None known.

4.8 Undesirable Effects

Povidone iodine may produce local skin reactions although it is considered to be less irritant than iodine. The application of povidone iodine to large wounds or severe burns may produce systemic adverse effects such as metabolic acidosis, hypernatraemia and impairment of renal function.

4.9 Overdose

Excess iodine can produce goitre and hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Systemic absorption of iodine after repeated application of povidone iodine to large areas of wounds or burns may lead to a number of adverse effects: metallic taste in mouth, irritation and swelling of the eyes, pulmonary oedema, skin reactions, gastrointestinal upset and diarrhoea, metabolic acidosis, hypernatraemia and impairment of renal function. In the case of accidental ingestion of large quantities of Betadine, symptomatic and supportive treatment should be provided with special attention to electrolyte balance and renal and thyroid function.

5. Pharmacological Properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic Properties

The active ingredient, povidone iodine, slowly liberates iodine when in contact with skin and mucous membranes. The activity of 'iodine' as a microbicide is then governed by a series of dissociations: I2? I+ + I- ; I2 + H2O ? H2O I+ + I- ; I2 + I- ? I3-. The microbicidal species H2O I+ preferentially displaces oxygen as the end electron acceptor in the microorganism's respiratory cycle. H2O I+ similarly interacts within the electron transport chain and reacts with the amino acids of the microbial cell membrane.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic Properties

Betadine Surgical Scrub is intended for topical application and therefore a consideration of the absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination of povidone iodine is largely without relevance.

5.3 Preclinical Safety Data

None stated.

6. Pharmaceutical Particulars 6.1 List Of Excipients

Sulphated nonylphenoxypoly(oxyethylene) ethanol ammonium salt; lauric diethanolamide;

ethoxylated lanolin 50%; Natrosol HXR; sodium hydroxide; purified water.

6.2 Incompatibilities

None stated.

6.3 Shelf Life

36 months unopened.

6.4 Special Precautions For Storage

Store below 25oC and protect from light.

6.5 Nature And Contents Of Container

High density polyethylene containers fitted with steran lined white polypropylene caps containing 500ml of product.

6.6 Special Precautions For Disposal And Other Handling

None stated.

7. Marketing Authorisation Holder

Uses For Stanhexidine Solution

Chlorhexidine belongs to a group of medicines called antiseptic antibacterial agents. It is used to clean the skin after an injury, before surgery, or before an injection. Chlorhexidine is also used to clean the hands before a procedure. It works by killing or preventing the growth of bacteria on the skin.

Before Using Stanhexidine Solution

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For this medicine, the following should be considered:

Allergies

Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to this medicine or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully.

Pediatric

Because of chlorhexidine's potential for causing excessive skin irritation and the risk of increased absorption through the skin, use in children less than 2 months of age is not recommended.

Geriatric

No information is available on the relationship of age to the effects of chlorhexidine in geriatric patients.

Interactions with Medicines

Although certain medicines should not be used together at all, in other cases two different medicines may be used together even if an interaction might occur. In these cases, your doctor may want to change the dose, or other precautions may be necessary. Tell your healthcare professional if you are taking any other prescription or nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicine.

Interactions with Food/Tobacco/Alcohol

Certain medicines should not be used at or around the time of eating food or eating certain types of food since interactions may occur. Using alcohol or tobacco with certain medicines may also cause interactions to occur. Discuss with your healthcare professional the use of your medicine with food, alcohol, or tobacco.

Other Medical Problems

Topical acne agents


A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Topical acne agents are applied on the skin to treat mild acne. They contain medicines, which control acne on the surface but may not treat the actual cause beneath the skin. Topical acne formulations either contain antibiotics that destroy or inhibit the growth of bacteria that form the pustules or they contain agents that help renew the skin more quickly and therefore reduce acne.
