The Case For Alcohol-Based Handrubs In Health Care

At present, alcohol-based handrubs are the only known means for rapidly and effectively inactivating a wide array of potentially harmful microorganisms on hands.

Efficacy

It is the consensus opinion of a WHO expert group that WHO recommended handrub formulations can be used both for hygienic hand antisepsis and for presurgical hand preparation.

Hygienic handrub

The microbicidal activity of the two WHO recommended formulations was tested by WHO reference laboratories according to EN standards (EN 1500).

Their activity was found to be equivalent to the reference substance (isopropanol 60% v/v) for hygienic hand antisepsis.

Safety Standards

With regard to skin reactions, handrubbing with alcohol based solutions is better tolerated than hand washing with soap and water.

In a recent study conducted among ICU health-care workers, the short-term skin tolerability and acceptability of WHO recommended handrub formulations were significantly higher than those of a reference product.

Any additive should be as non-toxic as possible in case of accidental or intentional ingestion.
