Questions About PD
I am the speaker who suggested that opthalmic solutions were in very low concentrations and I stand corrected. Unfortunately, there are no published studies of gentamicin opthalmic solution for exit site prophylaxis, so there is no data to support a protocol using it. I do wonder if a solution, whether 1 or 2 drops, applied to an exit site would not just run off the area, whereas a cream is applied to the skin surface and absorbed just a handcream would be absorbed. Further research would be required to determine if gentamicin opthalmic solution would be as effective as gentamicin cream.
