Medical professionals employ HOCl in dermatology and surgery to prepare the skin for injectables and to soothe surgical irritations. It is used to hydrate the skin and remove debris in open wound surgery.

Because of HOCl’s effectiveness against bacteria, it is used post-procedure. Microdermabrasion, laser treatments, and chemical peels all benefit from the use of HOCl.

As to the facilities themselves, the number of healthcare acquired infections (HAI) within hospitals, clinics, assisted living and other medical establishments continues to grow. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 1 out of every 20 patients contract an HAI. Strict guidelines have forced hospital authorities to ensure cleanliness in their facilities.

There are an estimated 1.7 Million HAIs in U.S. and 99,000 associated deaths each year. Contaminated near-patient surfaces and equipment play an important role in the transmission of dangerous pathogens and appropriate disinfection of those surfaces is necessary to reduce exposure.

Disinfexol effectively and efficiently cleans and disinfects within healthcare facilities in one-step using its EPA registered, long lasting, safe and easy to use solution.
