3M Avagard Foam Instant Hand Antiseptic



Fran Hildwine, BS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P | | Monday, March 17, 2008

The key to reducing infections and limiting the spread of disease is hand washing. But does your ambulance have a sink with running water so you can wash up between patient contacts? Probably not. (If it does, drop me an e-mail with a photo.) An alternative to harsh alcohol-based cleansers,Avagard Foam Instant Hand Antiseptic from3M contains a balanced blend of five different emollients to condition the skin as it cleans, so you can not only avoid the risk of infection but also the discomfort caused by dry hands.


Size: 1.6 fl. oz (50 ml); 13.5 fl. oz (400 ml.); 33.8 fl. oz (1,000 ml)
