Hand coverage by alcohol-based handrub varies: Volume and hand size matter

Haidegger, Tamas
Published in American journal of infection control. 2016, vol. 44, no. 12, 1689–1691
Abstract Visitors of an infection prevention and control conference performed hand hygiene with 1, 2, or 3 mL ultraviolet light-traced alcohol-based handrub. Coverage of palms, dorsums, and fingertips were measured by digital images. Palms of all hand sizes were sufficiently covered when 2 mL was applied, dorsums of medium and large hands were never sufficiently covered. Palmar fingertips were sufficiently covered when 2 or 3 mL was applied, and dorsal fingertips were never sufficiently covered.
