The Cardinal Health Webcol Alcohol Wipes are used to clean the skin and specific skin areas to prepare the skin for procedures such as IV lines and syringe incisions or other procedures where the skin will be penetrated and exposed to external bacteria. When staff preps the skin, they are cleaning the area to reduce the possible risk of infections from outside components - such as those from what we cannot see with our eyes like viruses and dead skin particles.
The Webcol Skin Prep Wipes (formally Covidien Webcol Wipes and Kendall Webcol Wipes) are made of a superabsorbent material that works great when using it as a cleansing pad to scrub off dirt and oils from the skin. The material will retain alcohol solution while being used to scrub the skin area. Infused with a 70 percent Isopropyl Alcohol, sanitation can be kept to optimal standards. The alcohol prep wipes are packaged individually in foil packaging to reduce drying-out the pads while in storage waiting to be used.
These pads are offered in 1-ply and 2-ply large options, while the medium option is only offered in 2-ply. Since the pads are sterile, they can be used for sensitive clinical procedures that may require an in-office procedure that does not demand admission to a hospital.
When cleaning the skin, there are additional steps and solutions you can use to sanitize the skin further, such as the use of povidone-iodine to disinfect the skin.
