|Title:||Can alcohol-based hand-rub solutions cause you to lose your driver's license? Comparative cutaneous absorption of various alcohols.||Austin Authors:||Brown, T L;Gamon, S;Tester, P;Martin, R;Hosking, K;Bowkett, G C;Gerostamoulos, D;Grayson, M Lindsay||Affiliation:||Infectious Diseases Department, Austin Health, Studley Road, Heidelberg, Victoria 3084, Australia||Issue Date:||28-Dec-2006||Publication information:||Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy 2006; 51(3): 1107-8||Abstract:||We assessed cutaneous ethanol (ETOH) and isopropanol (ISOP) absorption after intensive (30 times per h) use of alcohol-based hand-rub solutions by healthcare workers (HCWs). ETOH was detectable in the breath of 6/20 HCWs (0.001 to 0.0025%) at 1 to 2 min postexposure and in the serum of 2/20 HCWs at 5 to 7 min postexposure. Serum ISOP levels were unrecordable at all time points.||Gov't Doc #:||17194820||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/10294||DOI:||10.1128/AAC.01320-06||Journal:||Antimicrobial agents and chemotherapy||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/17194820||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||2-Propanol.pharmacokinetics
