                How to choose isolation gown
                2021-07-01 03:26:01


                Isolation gowns are personal protective clothing for healthcare workers or patients. Isolation gowns protect healthcare workers from the spread of microorganisms, body fluids and particulates. In addition, healthcare workers wearing isolation gowns can provide a sterile or cleaner environment for patient care.

                Some common terms mentioned for isolation gowns include isolation gowns, surgical isolation gowns, non-surgical gowns, surgical gowns and operating room gowns.

                In 2004, the FDA endorsed the American National Standards Institute/Association for the Advancement of Medicine (ANSI/AAMI) consensus standard BP70:2003, "Liquid Barrier Properties and Classification of Protective Clothing and Isolation Gowns for Use in Health Care Facilities." The standard's new terminology for protective materials describes the level of barrier protection for barrier gowns and other protective clothing used in healthcare facilities, specifying in detail the test methods and performance results needed to verify and confirm that the protective clothing provides the newly defined level of protection as follows:

                -level 1: minimal risk, e.g. for basic care, standard isolation, visitor isolation gowns or standard medical units

                -Level 2: Low risk, e.g. for use during blood draws, suturing, intensive care units (ICU) or pathology laboratories

                -Level 3: Moderate risk, such as for arterial blood draws, insertion of intravenous (IV) lines, emergency room trauma cases, or caustic chemical experiments

                -Level 4: High risk, e.g. for prolonged, high-risk procedures, when pathogen resistance is required or when infectious disease (non-airborne) is suspected When selecting an isolation gown, regardless of how the product is named (isolation gown, surgical gown, lab coat), look for a gown with the required level of protection based on the above risk level.
