Aegis CHG-Impregnated Foam Disc

  • AegisTM CHG-impregnated foam discs help reduce risk factors associated with CLABSI
  • Evidence-based practice standards recommend covering central line catheters with chlorhexidine-containing sponge dressings to help prevent central-line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI)1
  • Aegis is a hydrophilic foam disc impregnated with chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG)
  • Aegis absorbs exudate and releases CHG for up to seven days This helps shield the catheter insertion site, while the CHG inhibits or kills bacteria on the dressing's surface
  • A 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
