PI Solution (10% povidone-iodine)
When diluted to less than 1% povidone-iodine is widely accepted as a effective final pressure flush for high-risk wounds or wound packing. It can also be used to purify water for drinking; use 4-6 drops per liter and wait 30 minutes. Filter dirty water before treating. Wait one hour if the water is cold.
We package a10% PI solution into 1/2-, one-, or two-ounce narrow mouth or dropper Nalgene bottles. The one- and two-ounce bottles fit into the medium 4-loop velcro strips; the half ounce bottles fit into the small 6-loop velcro strips. The velcro strips inside all of our first aid packs are specifically designed to fit Nalgene containers.
