Protective medical clothing
In order for healthcare workers to stay safe and continue their work, they need medical protective clothing in the first place. Ambulance paramedics, duty doctors, and nurses – they are our guardian angels and continue to treat people despite the dangers.
The category of PPE includes special anti-plague (protective) suits, which consist of the following elements:
- face shield;
- shoe covers.
There are a number of requirements and regulations relating to production. It is their compliance that ensures that the risks of contamination are minimised. Let’s take a closer look at each indicator for them.
So, what is the difference between disposable medical protective clothing and everyday work uniforms? First of all, they are differentiated according to the conditions of use. Wearing protective clothing is mandatory in the case of pandemics.
A whole range of EN ISO specifications have been developed to which the protective clothing has to conform (permeability, durability, composition, etc.). Three important criteria that protective clothing must fulfil:
- Barrier protection is the property of the material to keep out microorganisms (viruses and bacteria). A distinction is made between anti-plague suits of types I – IV. For work in a ‘covid’ hospital, clothing of type I is suitable in terms of characteristics.
- Practicality – every detail must facilitate free movement. First of all, all protective clothing is non-allergenic and anti-static. You literally can’t feel them on yourself. They are lightweight, virtually weightless, breathable and hygroscopic and do not affect the exchange of heat.
- Tear and puncture resistant – maintains the integrity of seams and fabric in various tasks: assisting, transporting patients, drawing blood for tests, etc.
Before you buy protective clothing, pay attention to its characteristics such as composition, purpose, and clothing design.
Sterile sets are made of lint-free synthetic material and have an additional layer of laminate on the chest area and sleeves. Such sets are used for major surgery, wound care and other manipulations.
Non-sterile sets are used in cosmetology, in waiting rooms for routine examinations, etc. The sets must be disposed of after use.
Disposable protective medical clothing
There are many varieties of special suits. They all consist of individual assembled elements. For example, in the catalogue you can order:
- disposable gowns;
- double- and triple-layer medical coveralls;
- face shields;
- shoe covers.
Gown – below-knee or floor-length, zipped or buttoned up. Can be worn over a work uniform.
The coveralls (jacket + trousers) cover the body from head to toe. Easy to put on, does not make a rustling noise and is non-magnetic.
Face shields are made of plastic – they not only cover the respiratory organs, but also the eyes. As you know, coronavirus and other dangerous pathogens can easily be transmitted from person to person through fluids (by coughing or sneezing). This item of PPE is 2-in-1 and functions as a mask and goggles at the same time. In this way, your face will not perspire as if you were wearing a mask. It is very comfortable and allows you to work non-stop.
The most popular and practical are spunbond and medispan. The fabric is suitable for sewing hygienic suits and the second one for more professional and sterile suits. Medispan is a layering of spunbond and breathing film. The result is a heavy-duty membrane. It repels substances and liquids, breathes and prevents infection.
Rules for choosing protective medical clothing
