Most surgical gowns are sterile and come in a wide variety of sizes and versions. Operating gowns are the personal protective equipment that many people use in health care. Surgeons and surgical teams use surgical gowns for all types of operations. Modern operating garments provide a breathable barrier of protection for the surgeon and all healthcare providers. The surgical garment provides barrier protection against blood infiltration and fluid contamination. Most operating gowns are sterile and come in a variety of sizes and styles. The surgical gowns can be purchased separately or as part of the surgical kit. There are many surgical kits for frequently performed operations. The surgical gowns are manufactured in either reinforced or reinforced form. Unreinforced garments are less durable and are designed for surgical procedures with low to moderate fluid contact. Reinforced garments provide increased protection in specific critical areas for more invasive and intense surgery.
As an experimental application of polyester microfilament fabrics, reusable surgical gowns must be repeatedly washed and disinfected. Therefore, in addition to maintaining the original state of the fabric without affecting its initial physical properties, hydrophobic treatment should be given a certain degree of washable resistance. Due to the high hygiene requirements of the medical field, standard versions of these disposable surgical gowns can be sterilized in an autoclave at 134°C. However, products that have been sterilized can be made available on request to provide the highest level of hygiene for delicate surgical procedures.
Surgical gowns are usually rated according to their AAMI rating. AAMI is the Association for the Advancement of Medical Devices. AAMI was founded in 1967 and they are a major source of many medical standards. AAMI has four levels of protection for surgical gowns, surgical masks, and other protective medical equipment.
Level 1: Used in situations where the risk of exposure is minimal, such as providing basic care and protective clothing to visitors.
Level 2: For use in low-risk exposure situations, such as during common blood drawing procedures and suture procedures.
Level 3: For medium-risk exposures, such as surgery and intravenous (IV) line insertion.
Level 4: Used in high-risk exposure situations, such as over a long period of time.
