What is a medical isolation gown
A medical isolation gown is a type of protective equipment, commonly referred to as personal protective equipment (PPE), used in the medical field to protect staff and patients from infection. Hospitals provide reusable gowns to reduce waste and procurement costs. These medical gowns are available in a variety of styles and materials. These protective suits are specially designed for doctors and patients with different features and can be worn during surgery or patient care to ensure the safety of both parties.
Formulated with lightweight fabric for good protection, this isolation gown is specially designed to meet the needs of routine clinical workplaces. These standard gowns come in a variety of colors and are fluid resistant. These isolation suits offer greater flexibility while covering a large portion of the body. Typically, isolation gowns feature a drawstring tie and knitted cuffs.
The barrier property of particulate matter refers to preventing airborne viruses from being inhaled in the form of aerosols or attached to the surface of the skin and absorbed by the human body.
The function of the isolation gown
Comfort includes air permeability, water vapor permeability, drape, quality, surface thickness, electrostatic properties, color, reflectivity, odor and skin sensitization, etc. The most important thing is air permeability and moisture permeability. In order to enhance the protective effect, protective clothing fabrics are usually laminated or laminated, resulting in thick and breathable, poor moisture permeability, and long-term wearing is not conducive to sweating and heat dissipation. The anti static requirement is to prevent the static electricity in the operating room from causing the surgical gown to absorb a large amount of dust and bacteria, which is harmful to the patient's wound, and to prevent the sparks generated by static electricity from detonating the volatile gas in the operating room and affecting the accuracy of precision instruments.
The physical and mechanical properties mainly refer to the tear resistance, puncture resistance and wear resistance of medical isolation clothing materials. Avoid tearing and punctures to provide channels for bacteria and viruses to spread, and wear resistance can prevent abrasion from providing places for bacteria and viruses to multiply.
In addition to the properties listed above, medical isolation clothing also needs to have disinfection tolerance, non-combustible, non-toxic, non-irritating, and harmless to the skin.
Healthcare workers need to wear coveralls for maximum protection from biological fluids. These cover all gowns are an appropriate choice if you are working around biological fluids capable of spreading disease. By wearing a full-body gown, you can protect your body from direct contact with liquids. dust-robe can be made of plastic or any other waterproof fabric.
This patient takes the neckline and tie at the waist, you can easily adjust the garment around your body. Cut off the route of transmission, avoid cross-infection, protect staff and patients, and prevent sterile items or sterile areas from being infected.
