Abstract :

Nosocomial infection remains a complex problem in hospitals, with high morbidity and mortality. It cause a longer treatment time and spend a lot of cost. WHO reported nosocomial infection prevalence varies between 3% - 21%, and surgical wound infection include 5% - 34% of the total number of nosocomial infections. This research comparing Chlorhexidine gluconate 0.2% and Povidone iodine 1% as an antiseptic to decrease density level of intraoral germs in maxillofacial fracture surgery. The result is there is no difference between the use of Chlorhexidine gluconate 0.2% and 1% povidone iodine as an antiseptic in reducing the level of intra-oral bacterial density in maxillofacial fracture surgery (p = 0.698). Chlorhexidine gluconate 0.2% as an antiseptic on the intra-oral maxillofacial fractures can significantly reduce the level of intra-oral bacterial density (p = 0.0001). Povidone iodine 1% as an antiseptic on the intra-oral maxillofacial fractures can significantly reduce the level of intra-oral bacterial density (p = 0.0001).
