BIOPATCH™ Protective Disk with CHG

BIOPATCH™ Protective Disk with CHG

In the US each year, there are an estimated 250,000 Central Line‐Associated Bloodstream Infections, with up to 33,000 deaths and a potential cost of $1 billion to the health care system.1 BIOPATCH™ is the only dressing that is designed to deliver chlorhexidine gluconate a full 360 degrees around the catheter insertion site, providing optimized coverage and protection.2,3 It is the only sponge dressing with a cleared indication for the reduction of CRBSIs in central venous and arterial catheters, with proven clinical efficacy.3,4

About this Device

BIOPATCH™ is a hydrophilic polyurethane absorptive foam with chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG). The foam material absorbs up to eight times its own weight in fluid, while the CHG incorporated into the dressing inhibits bacterial growth under the dressing. Chlorhexidine gluconate is a well-known antiseptic agent with broad-spectrum antimicrobial and antifungal activity.3

Economic Evidence

The cost of a catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) is higher than the price of preventing it. A single CRBSI can cost up to $45,814, on average. Chlorhexidine-impregnated sponges for arterial and central venous catheters may save money by reducing major catheter-related infections.10,11

A controlled, randomized, clinical trial consisting of 687
subjects with 1699 central venous or arterial catheter
insertion sites was conducted at two centers. Results showed that the use of BIOPATCH™ had a3:

  • 44% reduction in the incidence of local infection (p≤0.0001)
  • 60% reduction in the incidence of catheter-related blood stream infections (p=0.026)
     

Clinical Evidence

BIOPATCH™ has a cleared indication to reduce the
incidence of Catheter Related Bloodstream Infections (CRBSIs), local infections, and skin colonization in patients with central venous and arterial catheters.2,3

Only BIOPATCH™ has over 30 years of extensive
clinical experience5, with more than3,6-9:

  • 15 randomized controlled trials
  • 13 Level II forms of evidence
  • 6 Level III forms of evidence

Device Specifications and Comparisons

BIOPATCH™ containing Chlorhexidine Gluconate is intended for use as a hydrophilic wound dressing that is used to absorb exudate and to cover a wound caused by the use of vascular and non-vascular percutaneous medical devices such as: IV catheters, central venous lines, arterial catheters, dialysis catheters, peripherally inserted coronary catheters, mid-line catheters, drains, chest tubes, externally placed orthopedic pins, and epidural catheters. It is also intended to reduce local infections, catheter-related blood stream infections (CRBSI), and skin colonization of microorganisms commonly related to CRBSI, in patients with central venous or arterial catheters.3
