Medical Gowns Guide from Vizocare

In the dynamic world of healthcare, safeguarding both yourself and your patients is an unwavering priority. Medical gowns, often known as isolation gowns or procedural gowns, play a vital role in safeguarding healthcare professionals and patients alike against infectious materials. At Vizocare, we recognize the importance of these essential pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) and strive to provide comprehensive insights into their utility and significance.

Beyond Patient Gowns: Understanding Medical Gowns

Beyond Patient Gowns: Understanding Medical Gowns

Unlike patient gowns designed for patient comfort during examinations, medical gowns serve as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for healthcare professionals. They create a crucial barrier against splashes, sprays, and potentially infectious body fluids. But with a diverse range of gown styles and functionalities, choosing the right one can feel overwhelming. Here's a breakdown of the most common medical gown types to equip you for every situation:

  • Isolation Gowns: These lightweight, disposable gowns are your frontline defense for basic care, standard isolation precautions, or covering visitors. Vizocare offers Level 1 and Level 2 isolation gowns in various materials like  polypropylene or SMS (multi-layered fabric) for breathability. Choose from elastic or knit cuffs for a comfortable fit, and explore our closure options like tape tab neck, tie back, or our innovative over-the-head design for easy removal.

  • Surgical Gowns: Designed for surgical procedures and situations with a high risk of fluid exposure, surgical gowns provide a more substantial barrier against infectious materials. Look for features like reinforced seams and a sterile design to minimize the risk of contamination.

  • Chemotherapy Gowns: These specialized gowns are your shield when handling hazardous drugs. Crafted from multi-layered, chemotherapy-resistant materials like SMS, they offer enhanced protection. Our Chemotherapy Gowns are rigorously tested and approved to safeguard you against a wide range of chemotherapy medications.

  • Protective Cover Gowns: For high-risk scenarios in the emergency room or trauma situations, protective cover gowns provide the ultimate defense. These gowns offer enhanced fluid protection and a tear-away design for quick removal in contaminated environments.

    Selecting the Right Armor: Understanding Gown Levels

    Selecting the Right Armor: Understanding Gown Levels

    We can delve deeper and explore some reasons behind these numbers:

    Medical gowns aren't a one-size-fits-all solution. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) have established a classification system to denote the level of fluid barrier protection a gown provides. Here's a breakdown to help you choose wisely:
    • Level 3: Moderate risk procedures like inserting IV lines or trauma cases require the enhanced protection of Level 3 gowns.
    • Level 4: In situations with a high risk of exposure, such as lengthy surgeries or suspected infectious diseases (non-airborne), Level 4 gowns provide the most significant barrier.

        Beyond Levels: Additional Gown Considerations

        Additional Gown Considerations
        While levels are crucial, other factors play a role in selecting the perfect medical gown:
        • Cuff Options: Elastic or knit cuffs offer a secure fit, while thumb loop cuffs provide extra protection for the hands.
        • Closure Options: Choose from convenient tie closures, our innovative over-the-head design for faster removal, or a secure tape tab neck closure.
        • Material Options: Spunbonded polypropylene offers a balance of affordability and protection, while SMS provides enhanced breathability and fluid resistance. Chemotherapy-resistant materials are essential for handling hazardous drugs.
