#IVTEAM #Intravenous products: CareFusion report “CareFusion, a leading global medical technology company, today announced it has received FDA approval to update labeling with reduced dry times as part of the directions for use on certain of its ChloraPrep® products.
The reduced dry times apply to a number of CareFusion ChloraPrep products used in skin preparation, including Sepp®, Frepp®, Single and Triple Swabsticks. These applicators are no longer labeled for electrocautery procedures and have a reduced dry time on dry surgical sites of 30 seconds and a dry time on moist surgical sites of one minute.
Labeling for the ChloraPrep® 3mL applicators has also been updated to include dry time changes to 30 seconds for dry sites and one minute for moist sites for procedures not using an ignition source. The required dry times for procedures that use an ignition source remain unchanged at a minimum of three minutes on hairless skin and and up to one hour in hair.
