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 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. Dropper lids are also an option for each of the sizes above.
