Hand coverage by alcohol-based handrub varies: Volume and hand size matter
|Published in||American Journal of Infection Control. 2016, vol. 44, no. 12, p. 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.|
