Is the hand sanitizer better than preventing more fluid than fluid and water? – Harvard Health

Regular use of a hand sanitizer, instead of soap and water, can lead to respiratory infections, shortness of breath, and lesser antibiotics – at least if you are a walking trout. A Spanish study has provided 911 children who have been in day care, from birth to three, randomly assigned to one of the three groups.

In control groups, parents and carers continued the normal child care services. In both groups of interventions, children are allocated for the use of handwashing hand sanitizer or soap and handwashing. Parents and carers are required to request a hands-free or handwash for the child in the morning; before and after lunch; after leaving the room; after coughing, sneezing, or coughing up the nose; after eating; and before leaving home. Both groups, soap and water are required for use after the toilet or when their hands are heavier.

The findings from the Hygiene Handicap team were much better than one of the soap and water groups or the control group. The Hygiene Handicap team has low levels of respiratory tract infections and have missed fewer school days, compared to the two groups. Children in sanitary hygiene are also likely to be prescribed antibiotics for respiratory infections.

Families or day care providers of the Hygiene Handicap team have collected 1,660 liters of clean hand washing during eight months. Based on this, researchers estimate that every child uses clean hand sanitizer six to eight times a day, on average.

There are reasons why the results of this study should be taken with salt. Time and effort have been made to strengthen the importance of hygiene. Researchers visited the daycare centers every two weeks to tell stories and sing songs about germs and hygiene. This led to the use of hand cleaners that would be difficult to summarize in a real world situation. Also, some, but not all the early use of hand sanitizers using preschools have shown lower levels of cold and cold infections.

Researchers did not evaluate how often the handicapped crew actually washed their hands. It is possible that the best hand clean hand hands are related to the use of hand-washing, compared to handwashing, which normally requires little time and effort.

  • Handwashing of use of the bed may be related to the low levels of respiratory infections as compared to soap and water washing.
  • The use of a hand sanitizer may be mandatory for users to view the advantages of 'important things'.
  • The hand cleaner should be in 70% of the algae solution to reduce the number of bacteria and the virus; Some bacteria have shown tolerance to reduce the amount of alcohol.
  • While there is a high quality evidence of the benefits of using hygiene in the community, the use of hand cleaners, along with the vaccine and the flu vaccine, is a reasonable measure to reduce the risk of respiratory infections there is
