What Is The Difference Between Isolation Gown, Protective Gown And Surgical Gown?

Sep. 24, 2020


Disposable isolation gowns, disposable protective gown and disposable Surgical Gown are all personal protective equipment commonly used in hospitals. However, during the clinical supervision process, we often find that medical staff are a bit confused about these three. Now let's talk about the similarities and differences between the three parties from the following aspects.


First, the function


Disposable isolation gowns:


A protective article used by medical personnel to avoid exposure to blood, body fluids, and other infectious materials, or to protect patients from infection. The gown is a two-way isolation that prevents both medical personnel from being infected or contaminated and prevents the patient from being infected.


Disposable protective gown:


disposable protective equipment worn by clinical staff when exposed to Class A or infectious disease patients managed by Class A infectious diseases. Protective clothing is to prevent medical personnel from being infected and is a single isolation.


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 to reduce the probability of medical personnel contacting the patient's blood or other body fluids during the surgical procedure. Second, the surgical gown can block the colonization/adhesion of the medical staff's skin or clothing. Various bacteria on the surface are transmitted to surgical patients, effectively avoiding cross-infection of multi-drug resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). Therefore, the barrier function of surgical gowns is considered to be the key to reducing the risk of infection during surgery.

second, dressing indications


Disposable Isolation Gown:


1. Patients exposed to contact-borne infectious diseases such as multi-drug resistant bacteria.


2, when the patient is protected from isolation, such as large-area burn patients, bone graft patients with diagnosis and treatment, care.


3, may be affected by the patient's blood, body fluids, secretions, discharges splashing.


4. If you want to enter the key departments such as ICU, NICU, protective ward, etc., whether you need to wear a gown, you should decide on the medical personnel to enter the purpose and contact with the patient.


Disposable protective gown:


1. When exposed to a class A or a patient managed by a Class A infectious disease.


2. Follow the latest infection control guidelines when contacting patients with suspected or confirmed SARS, Ebola, MERS, H7N9 avian influenza.


Disposable surgical gown:


used in strict sterile sterilization and invasive treatment of patients in specialized operating rooms.


Third, appearance and material requirements


Disposable isolation gowns:


Disposable surgical gown are usually made of non-woven materials or combined with materials that have better barrier properties, such as plastic film. The integrity and toughness are achieved through the use of various nonwoven fiber joining techniques rather than the geometric interlocking of woven and knitted materials. The gown should cover the torso and all the clothes to form a physical barrier for the spread of microorganisms and other substances. It should have impermeability, abrasion resistance and tear resistance. There is no specific standard at present, there is a brief introduction to the wear and tear of the gown (the gown should be open at the back to cover all the clothes and exposed skin), but there are no relevant indicators such as specifications and materials. The gown can be re-used or disposable, without a hat. From the definition of the gown, there is no requirement for anti-penetration, and the gown can be waterproof or non-waterproof.


Disposable protective gown:


Protective Coverallconsists of hooded tops and trousers. Can be divided into a one-piece structure and a separate structure. The trouser legs and cuffs are tightened, and the protective clothing has a higher degree of protection than the gown. It is generally recommended to use one-off.


The standard clearly states that protective gown must have liquid barrier function (water resistance, moisture permeability, anti-synthetic blood permeability, surface moisture resistance), flame retardancy and antistatic properties, for breaking strength, elongation at break, filtration Efficiency and other requirements are required.


Disposable surgical gown:


According to the European standard EN13795, surgical clothes materials have clear requirements for barrier properties, strength, microbial penetration, and comfort. The surgical gown should be impervious, sterile, conjoined, and without a hat. Generally, the cuffs of the surgical gown are elastic a
