Polyethylene Coated Polypropylene is a material used for its high waterproof abilities and is a perfect choice when you’re dealing with potentially infectious blood and other liquids. Furthermore, this material type is lightweight and breathable which is why it’s widely used in hospital gown manufacturing. Being anti-bacterial as well, it can protect you on all fronts!
SMS stands for Spunbond-Meltblown-Spunbond material. It’s a non-woven fabric that has high waterproof abilities. Also, SMS material is more lightweight than other material types, so gowns made from it can help reduce fatigue during long hospital shifts. Another benefit of SMS is its high capacity when it comes to preventing lint generation, making it fully hypoallergenic as well.
AAMI Medical Gown Product FAQ
Level 3 PE GOWN Product Description
Medium-level protection is intended for a variety of surgical procedures where there’s a moderate to larger fluid penetration risk, usually due to blood spatters. This means that you can use these surgical gowns in ER, trauma, ICU, critical care units, burn units, and similar. All gowns classified as AAMI level 3 gowns have passed two tests proving their barrier protection performance – one is the ability of the material to withstand pressure, and the other is the impact of liquids on the gown’s surface.
Medical Gown Standards
In 2004, the FDA recognized the consensus standard American National Standards Institute/Association of the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (ANSI/AAMI) PB70:2003, “Liquid barrier performance and classification of protective apparel and drapes intended for use in health care facilities.” New terminology in the standard describes the barrier protection levels of gowns and other protective apparel intended for use in health care facilities and specifies test methods and performance results necessary to verify and validate that the gown provides the newly defined levels of protection:
Level 1: Minimal risk, to be used, for example, during basic care, standard isolation, a cover gown for visitors, or in a standard medical unit
Level 2: Low risk, to be used, for example, during the blood draw, suturing, in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), or a pathology lab
Level 3: Moderate risk, to be used, for example, during the arterial blood draw, inserting an intravenous (IV) line, in the Emergency Room, or for trauma cases
Level 4: High risk, to be used, for example, during long, fluid intense procedures, surgery, when pathogen resistance is needed or infectious diseases are suspected (non-airborne)
Regardless of how the product is named (that is, isolation gown, procedure gown, or cover gown), when choosing gowns, look for product labeling that describes an intended use with the desired level of protection based on the above risk levels. Product names are not standardized.
What is the main differences between isolation gown and coverall?
During the current COVID-19 era, medical practitioners put on protective attires during the medical assessment, prompt diagnostic tests, and safety screening. Selecting the applicable and quality of personal protective clothing is a significant move.
Medical gowns offer limited coverage where the mid-calf and your back are left open. Gowns are tailored to stop any contamination on the front side only and covers from neck to knee—the backside openings aid in enhancing your comfort. Abdomen ties are added features in your attire and should be tied well to avoid additional hazards.
Coveralls are customized to provide full-body coverage, with some covering even your feet. The attire protects not only your body but also the clothes you are wearing from surrounding exposures. Moreover, these coveralls protect your workstation from contagions.
Coveralls are tailored to protect the whole body, making them ideal for frontline medical practitioners who receive patients with transmissible microbes like COVID-19. Moreover, coveralls joints and closures are vital as they enhance your attire effectiveness and toughness.
Tape gowns VS Non-tape gowns
The tape around the suite could provide more protection from Resistant fluid leaks. Provides users with more protection.
