Transdermal antiseptic products as a method to decrease bioburden in skin prior to surgery

Semester: Spring 2024

Presentation description

Surgical site infections affect a number of patients post-surgery and pose a major threat to successful surgical outcomes. The majority of SSIs stem from an individual's endogenous skin flora. To mitigate this risk, the clinical standard is to cleanse the skin prior to surgery using skin preparation kits. Our research designates that there are means for improvement in PSP technology in order to quantify and kill deep-dwelling bacteria in the skin.
