Hello All, just wondering if any of you use nasal decolonisation pre-operatively? We are looking at Octenisan nasal gel for all our cardiac patients to reduce MSSA. Advantages, it is not an antibiotic so no concern over resistance. Some Trusts use this product to decolonise MRSA pos pts. We would still use mupiricin if pt MRSA pos though as evidence stronger.
Happy to hear your thoughts. Philippa
