    Evidence for Effectiveness of Masks
    0 Evidence for Effectiveness of Masks

    We are all aware of the CORONA virus's impact on our day-to-day life. Now Masks have become an inseparable part of our daily chores. Let's discuss the different types of masks and their effectiveness.COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets. These respiratory droplets travel into the air when you cough, sneeze, talk, shout or sing. These droplets then land in the mouths or noses of individuals who are in close contact with you.

    Masks act as a barrier to assist in preventing your respiratory droplets from reaching others. Studies show that the masks reduce the spraying of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth.

    You should wear a mask, though you are not feeling sick. This is because several studies have found that people with COVID-19 who never develop symptoms (asymptomatic) and people who are not yet showing symptoms (pre-symptomatic) can still spread the virus to other people. The main function of wearing a mask is to guard those people around you, just in case you are infected but not showing symptoms.

    It is vital to wear a mask when you cannot remain a minimum of 6 feet from others since COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who have very close contact with each other (within about 6 feet).

    Your mask offers some protection to you

    The cloth mask /non-medical mask also offers some protection to you. How effective it protects you from breathing in the virus likely depends on the fabrics used, and the way your mask is made (e.g. the type of cloth, the number of fabric layers, the level of fitness the mask has).  

    Who should wear a mask?

    Everyone 2 years aged and older should wear a mask publicly and once they are around people that don't board their household.

    Wear a mask when caring for somebody who is sick with COVID-19 (whether reception or during a non-healthcare setting). If you're sick with COVID-19 or think you will have COVID-19, wear a mask after you got to be around people or animals, even in your house. 

    Who should not wear a mask?

    Masks are not recommended for children less than 2 years old anyone who has trouble breathing, anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to get rid of the mask without assistance.

    Wearing masks is also hard for some people with sensory, cognitive, or behavioral issues. If they are unable to wear a mask properly or cannot tolerate a mask, they ought to not wear one, and adaptations and alternatives should be considered.

    Current Trends Prevailing In Healthcare Textiles & Medical Fabrics
    0 Current Trends Prevailing In Healthcare Textiles & Medical Fabrics

    In recent years, two major economic trends have affected the healthcare industry. 1. Budget affecting controlled reimbursements from CMS & private insurers. 2. Market advancements enabling high Healthcare product Delivery.

    The high level of consumers employing in-patient care rises strikingly. Healthcare Centers & Hospitals are ascertaining a shrinking in-patient population which demands better outcomes. Hospitals are assessed more in a holistic manner on patient outcomes than ever before. In response to it, they try to capture and control more of the healthcare delivery spectrum. While Healthcare Sectors vertically integrate and touch us at more and more points of care, the expectation is building up more which makes them traveling the path without any hurdles. 

    How does this affect Healthcare Textiles?

    As healthcare systems are making their hard-earned efforts to meet patient satisfaction levels (to earn better reimbursement rates, in part), they see opportunities/demands to use Healthcare Textiles and Medical apparel to nurture them. 

    Trends in Staff Apparels

    Recent research has shown that at least two-thirds of all hospitals have employed a color-coded uniform program for their patient-facing staff in order to help patients and families to clearly identify between the nurse and the doctor. In retain scrubs, synthetic-rich, home-wash performance fabrics are the fast becoming norm. It replaces the old 65/35 Polyester-Cotton & 50/50 Cotton-Polyester stalwart blends. Before the rise of OR Scrubs, the healthcare Industries purchase, process, and make it more performance-based fabrics and designs.

    With the fabric treatment and delicate stretch components, these new unisex reversible scrubs will pose a laundering challenge, but offer opportunities for enriched customer relationships if they get it right. 

    Trends in Patient Apparels

    The focus on attaining the patient’s satisfaction has raised the expectations of the simple Patient Gowns to offer more comfort, dignity, and performance than ever before. New normal inpatient apparel is having synthetic blends, softer fabrics, brighter and more -stain & fade-resistant prints and designs, and better coverage. This adds up to easy processing and less energy use for laundry. Isolation Gowns made of synthetics are on the rise too. 

    Trends in Patient Bedding

    Recent research shows that healing and recovery are faster and better in a more comfortable environment in Hospitals. Performance fabrics or Value-added Textiles are evolving in the patient environment as well. Besides a plastic ID Band and air the inpatients breathe, it is only Healthcare Fabrics and Medical apparels touch and surrounds every patient 100% of the time.

    As we know that the two major contributors to skin breakdown and decubitus ulcers are pressure and moisture, Hospital Knitted Sheets, incontinence products, 100% cotton blankets, as well as Barrier Gowns, which are designed to remove pressure and moisture away from the patient’s skin. Therapeutic beds and mattresses help to prevent skin breakdown.

    Another wave coming with the preponderance of synthetic knits is the no-fold linen system in Hospital Bed linens. Knitted bottom and top sheets, pillowcases, and patient gowns are be delivered in bags unfolded and unwrinkled, speeding up post-processing and redelivery times.

    In summary, the healthcare industry now offers more alternative points of care as the expectation level from patients is rising more and more. In order to adapt to the new synthetic performance world. , High-performing synthetic fabrics, as well as innovative garments, are emerging!

For Ex. the thread count of 300 means 150 horizontal and 150 vertical threads. Bed Sheets with lower thread count are less expensive compared to higher thread count. Higher the thread count will be more durable and give a comfortable and soft feel while resting on Beds. Usually, Healthcare Industry has Bed Covers with T130 which are considered as standard purchase benefits of low cost and durable after many no of washes.

    • Fabric Quality: Hospitals prefer to buy Bed Covers made of Pure Cotton or a blend of Cotton and Polyester. Synthetic Fabric-like Nylon and Acrylic are not often used by Healthcare Industries because of their less resistance and easy pilling after wash. Cotton and Cotton blend Bed Covers are much durable, withstand more no of washes, and can dry at high temperature. These types of fabric are soft and breathable, give better comfort while sleeping. Fabric with Bamboo and Rayon mix is more expensive than Cotton fabric which is highly used in Home Healthcare.

It is made of plastic, cotton, polyester often used by Medical professionals to move patients. Flat Sheets is a rectangular and simple piece of cloth also known as top sheet or non-fitted sheets which fold easily and lies flat on any surface. Fitted Sheets tend to have elasticated corners which have been designed so that it can be pulled over the mattress. A fitted sheet has elastic on its edge to fit with the mattress. It is also known as a bottom sheet. Knitted Sheets can be stretch, which makes them less likely to untuck or come loose when adjustable hospital beds are moved up and down. A fitted knitted sheet is an excellent option in this scenario.
    • Size of Sheets: Selecting the appropriate sheets for your Bed is very important. Undersize sheets will easily become loose when raising or lowering the adjustable Hospital Beds. A loose sheet will give discomfort to patients. Pay attention to the size and thickness of the Mattress, Oversized sheets can cause stumble and slipping hazards.
