Incise Drapes

Whilst skin disinfection functions to chemically reduce the bacterial load on the patient's skin prior to surgery, there is conclusive evidence to show that incise drapes act to physically contain any skin bacteria which rises to the skin surface during surgery, so preventing bacteria from migrating into the incision site and reducing the incidence of wound contamination.


In addition, incise drapes also provide a waterproof and bacteriaproof barrier which prevents wound irrigates, organs and instruments from being contaminated by direct contact with the unsterile skin. Incise drapes should be used in conjunction with skin disinfection to prevent skin flora, an important source of surgical infection, from contaminating the wound.
