Disposable isolation gowns and disposable surgical gowns

 

Disposable isolation gowns and disposable surgical gowns are medical garments designed toprotect wearers from potentially infectious pathogens. Disposable gowns are typically made from nonwoven materials, such as polypropylene or polyester, and are available in various sizes. They are usually brightly colored and printed with graphics identifying the hospital or clinic where they were made. Disposable isolation gowns are usually made of non-woven materials or combined with better anti-permeability properties, such as plastic films, which have anti-permeability, abrasion resistance, and tear resistance. Disposable surgical gowns should be impermeable, sterile, and generally conjoined. Usually, the cuffs of the surgical gown are elasticated for ease of donning and for sterile gloves. It is not only used to protect medical personnel from contamination by infectious substances but also to protect the sterile state of surgically exposed parts.

 

Difference

 

Disposable isolation gowns are usually made of nonwoven materials or combined with materials with better impermeability properties, such as plastic films. It is imparted with integrity and toughness through various nonwoven fiber joining techniques rather than the geometrical interlocking of woven and knitted materials.

Surgical gowns should be impermeable, sterile, one-piece, and have no caps. Generally, the cuff of the surgical gown is elastic, which is easy to wear, and it is beneficial to wear sterile hand gloves. It is not only used to protect medical staff from contamination by infectious substances but also to protect the sterile state of surgically exposed parts.

 

Why use disposable?

 

Some surgeons and hospitals prefer disposable gowns because they believe they are more effective and safer.

The main argument in favor of Winner Medical's disposable surgical gowns is that disposable gowns can replace traditional reusable medical supplies. It avoids not only iatrogenic cross-infection but also is convenient and hygienic to use. It can be used in hospital operating rooms, wards, obstetrics and gynecology, and other places.

 

Conclusion

 

The requirements for disposable surgical gowns and protective clothing are significantly higher than those for disposable isolation gowns. In the case of common clinical use of isolation gowns (such as contact isolation of multi-drug resistant bacteria), disposable and isolation gowns can be interchanged. Still, where disposable surgical gowns must be used, they cannot be replaced by isolation gowns.
