Nov. 19, 2020

Isolation Gown, disposable protective gowns, and disposable surgical gowns are all personal protective equipment commonly used in hospitals. But in the process of clinical supervision, we often find that medical staff are a little confused about these three. Isolation Gown supplier will talk about the similarities and differences from the following aspects.

1. Function

Disposable isolation clothing: protective equipment used for medical personnel to avoid contamination by blood, body fluids, and other infectious substances during contact, or to protect patients from infection. Isolation gowns not only prevent infection or contamination of medical staff, but also prevent infection of patients, it is a two-way isolation.

Disposable Protective Clothing: disposable protective equipment worn by clinical medical staff when contacting patients with Class A or infectious diseases managed by Class A infectious diseases. Protective clothing is to prevent infection of medical staff and is a single item of isolation.

Disposable protective clothing

Disposable surgical gown: The surgical gown plays a two-way protective role during the operation. First, the surgical gown establishes a barrier between the patient and the medical staff, which reduces the probability of medical staff coming into contact with the patient’s blood or other body fluids and other potential sources of infection during the operation; secondly, the surgical gown can block colonization/adhesion to the medical staff’s skin or clothing Various bacteria on the surface spread to surgical patients, effectively avoiding cross-infection of multi-drug resistant bacteria. Therefore, the barrier function of surgical gowns is regarded as the key to reducing the risk of infection during surgery.

2. Dressing Indication

Disposable isolation gown: 1. When contacting patients with infectious diseases spread by contact, such as patients infected by multidrug resistant bacteria. 2. When patients are subject to protective isolation, such as diagnosis, treatment and nursing of patients with extensive burns and bone marrow transplantation. 3. It may be splashed by the patient's blood, body fluids, secretions and excrement. 4. When entering key departments such as ICU, NICU, and protective wards, whether to wear isolation gowns or not should be determined based on the purpose of entry and the contact status of the medical staff.

Disposable protective clothing: 1. When contacting patients with Class A or Class A infectious diseases. 2. When contacting patients with suspected or confirmed SARS, Ebola, MERS, H7N9 avian influenza, etc., the latest infection control guidelines should be followed.

Disposable surgical gown: It is strictly sterilized and used for invasive treatment of patients in a special operating room.

3. Appearance and material requirements

Disposable isolation clothing: Disposable isolation clothing is usually made of non-woven materials, or combined with materials with better permeability resistance, such as plastic films. Through the use of various non-woven fiber joining technologies instead of the geometric interlocking of woven and knitted materials, it has integrity and toughness. Isolation clothing should be able to cover the torso and all clothing to form a physical barrier for the transmission of microorganisms and other substances. Should have impermeability, abrasion resistance and tear resistance. Isolation gowns can be reusable or disposable, without a cap.

Disposable protective clothing: GB 19082-2009 clearly states that protective clothing is composed of hooded tops and pants. It can be divided into one-piece structure and two-piece structure. The trouser legs and cuffs are tightened, and the protection level of protective clothing is higher than that of isolation clothing. Generally recommended to use disposable.

Disposable surgical gown: The surgical gown should be impermeable, sterile, one-piece, without a cap. Generally, the cuffs of surgical gowns are elastic, which is easy to wear, and it is helpful 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 the exposed parts of the operation.
