Abstract
PURPOSE: The purpose was to assess the effects of chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) bathing on health care-associated infections among critically ill patients. METHODS: This meta-analysis evaluated English-language studies from the PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane databases. The Cochrane Collaboration methodology was used to evaluate all publications regarding daily CHG bathing and the risks of acquiring central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE). Risk ratios (RRs) and the ratio of the log RRs (RRR) were estimated with 95% confidence intervals (CIs). RESULTS: Eighteen studies were included. Compared with conventional care, the RRs (95% CIs) for CLABSI, MRSA, and VRE with CHG bathing were 0.45 (0.37-0.55), 0.67 (0.59-0.77), and 0.60 (0.42-0.85), respectively (all, P < .05). For MRSA acquisition, CHG bathing with concomitant nasal antibiotics provided a lower incidence compared with only CHG bathing (RRR: 0.81, 95% CI: 0.66-0.98, P = .035). Greater risk reduction was also observed in studies with prolonged interventions (RRR per 1-month extension: -0.02, P = .027). CONCLUSIONS: Daily CHG bathing was associated with reduced risks of acquiring CLABSI, MRSA, and VRE. A prolonged intervention period and concomitant nasal antibiotic use were associated with lower risks of MRSA acquisition.
