Although it is said that medical protective clothing is better than isolation clothing, the cost is relatively high, so for different jobs, the choice of protective clothing is also different. The difference between the characteristics of medical protective clothing and isolation clothing.
Due to the standards of different countries, non-woven isolation garments are divided into different grades. According to the standards of EU countries, isolation gowns need to meet EN13795 standards. EN 13795 is composed of three standards, mainly the standard of "patients, medical staff and instruments, surgical drapes, surgical gowns and clean clothes".
Due to the national standards of the United States, non-woven isolation garments are divided into different grades. The AAMI standard specifications promulgated by the American Association for the Advancement of Medical Devices classify the protective performance of isolation gowns:
Disposable surgical gowns are used by medical staff for invasive treatment of patients in specialized operating rooms and require strict sterilization. For contaminated blood, body fluids and other infectious substances, wearing disposable surgical gowns can serve as a two-way isolation between medical staff and patients.
1. Material: The material of disposable non-woven clothes is non-woven fabric (non-woven fabric). 2. Specifications and dimensions: The specifications and dimensions are as required by the buyer's contract. 3. The microbiological indicators are implemented in accordance with the regulations of (ordinary grade) sanitary products in GB15979-2002.
1. Play a two-way protective role during the operation. 2. The surgical gown establishes a barrier between the patient and the medical staff, which reduces the probability of the medical staff coming into contact with the patient’s blood or other body fluids and other potential sources of infection during the operation. 3. The surgical gown can block the spread of various bacteria adhering to the skin or clothing surface of the medical staff to the surgical patient.
A surgical gown is regulated by the FDA as a Class II medical device that requires a 510(k) premarket notification. A surgical gown is a personal protective garment intended to be worn by health care personnel during surgical procedures to protect both the patient and health care personnel from the transfer of microorganisms, body fluids, and particulate matter. Because of the controlled nature of surgical procedures, critical zones of protection have been described by national standards. As referenced in Figure 1: the critical zones include the front of the body from top of shoulders to knees and the arms from the wrist cuff to above the elbow. Surgical gowns can be used for any risk level (Levels 1-4). All surgical gowns must be labeled as a surgical gown.
Surgical gowns, as a necessary protective clothing during surgery, are used to reduce the risk of medical staff contacting pathogenic microorganisms, and at the same time, it can also reduce the risk of pathogenic microorganisms spreading between medical staff and patients. It is a safe barrier for the sterile area during surgery. .
