    Disposable Isolation gowns are to be discarded after a single use. They are constructed with non-woven materials. This will prevent liquid penetration such as plastic films. Such isolation gowns are manufactured using synthetic fibers. 

    The protective gown must have liquid barrier function, flame retardant, and anti-static properties which help in breaking strength, elongation at break, filtration Efficiency, and other requirements. Protective Gowns can prevent and isolate dust, particle, alcohol, blood, bacteria, and virus invasion.

    Surgical Gowns are Class II medical devices according to the regulation of the FDA. Surgical gowns are used by the healthcare personnel while handling the surgical procedures to protect both the healthcare personnel and patient from the transmission of microorganisms and body fluids. Surgical gowns are segregated based on the risk levels from 1-4. Surgical gowns are always labeled.

    A surgical gown is made out of non-woven fabric which acts as a protective barrier for anti-bacterial performance for liquid. Even the cotton gowns can block some micro-organisms but there is a chance of pathogenic bacteria penetration through the gown in the form of liquid.

    Role of Healthcare Apparels and other Healthcare Textiles in the transmission of Micro-organisms
    0 Role of Healthcare Apparels and other Healthcare Textiles in the transmission of Micro-organisms

    In Healthcare Industry, Healthcare workers (HCWs) wear Healthcare Apparels like uniforms, scrubs and lab coats, for the following causes:

    • To get identification as hospital personnel to their patients and employers.
    • To display professionalism.
    • To get barrier protection for clothes from unexpected exposures during the work hours. 

    In situations like COVID-19, a medical study suggests that Healthcare Apparels are prone to contamination with micro-organisms or pathogens that can cause infections or illnesses. While the scrubs and lab coats are majorly manufactured, with the same traditional textiles used to make street clothes, new evidence suggests having innovative textiles function. It should possess engineering control, acquisition minimization, retention, and reduction in transmission of infectious pathogens.

    To solve the problems related to healthcare infections, and infections acquired occupationally, an equation with many complex variables is required. One of the main components is healthcare professionals like doctors, nurses, laboratory personnel, and technicians who are infrequent exposure to blood and body fluids. These fluids can transmit bacteria that cause colonization or infection. Risk of virus transmissions like noroviruses, respiratory viruses, and blood-borne viruses that can survive for hours or days on surfaces is also possible. 

    The way patient care is delivered is also another consideration. While personnel working in hospital operating rooms, and emergency units, anticipate splashes and splatters of blood and body fluids, they use personal protective equipment (PPE) accordingly.

    New Medical technologies pave the way for performing invasive procedures outside of the acute care environment. The following are the situations:

    • Difficulty in avoiding accidental exposures to blood and body fluids.
    • Acute access to Personal Protective Equipment. 
    • Minimal or no supervision for healthcare professionals. 
    • Less compliant with standard infection control precautions. 

    Thus healthcare professionals who work in non-traditional settings such as Healthcare clinics, ambulatory, and community settings are at the highest risk of occupational exposure to infectious micro-organisms. Proper Usage of Protective Gowns and Masks should be made mandatory in all healthcare industries to prevent them from getting infections.

    In this article, we are going to discuss the kind of Protective / Isolation Gowns are required for Healthcare Professionals.

    Originally, Isolation Gowns are mainly used as a cover in handling isolation cases to protect Doctors from microorganisms. Old pattern Isolation Gowns are less protective due to the absorption of fluids and frequent washing of the materials leads to fabric deterioration. Its main functionality is to cover arms and exposed body areas during patient care activities from anticipating clothing, blood, bodily fluids, etc… Moreover, Isolation Gowns are made from 100% Cotton and 50/50 Cot. Poly. There are many types of Isolation Covers are available, which will be selected based on a variety of protection levels.

    Hospital Gowns are the most common form of barrier protection used by the Healthcare Industry. These Gowns are used for Surgical, Isolation, or Low-risk cases, available in many styles and designs.

    • Isolation Gown is used for minimal risk cases such as basic care, standard isolation, standard medical ward, or visitors covers gown.
    • Low-risk Isolation Gown for cases like blood draw, Intensive Care Unit, or Medical Labs.
    • Cases like Heavy Blood Draw, Emergency Room, or Trauma are moderate risks.
    • High-risk Isolation Gowns for a high level of infectious diseases like Covid-19, Surgery, fluid intense, etc.   

    In the marketplace, we can find a variety of fabrics and a wide range of fibers used for Protective Gowns. Isolation Gowns are generally classified as “Disposable/Single Use” or “Reusable/Multiuse”. The study suggests that the U.S mostly use “Disposable Gowns”, whereas Europe uses “Reusable Gowns” in larger quantity. “Disposable/Single Use” is designed with a combination of materials rather than woven or knitted materials (e.g. polypropylene, polyester, polyethylene). “Reusable/Multiuse” is made of 100% Cotton, 100% Polyester, or Poly Cot blends. These fabrics are tightly woven and pressed through rollers to enhance the high level of fluid barrier properties. It can be reused and washed more times.
