The recent pandemic caused by Covid-19 has highlighted the need for reliable personal protective equipment (PPE). Adequate PPE is critical for frontline workers because it safely protects them from the spread of any virus. First responders, healthcare workers (HCWs), patients, and visitors all need proper protection from the emerging threat of infectious diseases including Covid-19, SARS, Ebola hemorrhagic fever, pandemic influenza, avian influenza, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C.
Personal protective equipment for infectious hazards include gowns, respirators, face masks, gloves, face shields, eye protection, and head and shoe coverings. They are all necessary forms of controls used to protect health care workers successfully. Valuable research has been done in some areas like respirators and protective face coverings, but in other areas, especially gowns, the study is minimal.
In the healthcare industry, gowns are one of the most used pieces of PPE following the use of gloves. Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding isolation precautions, state that isolation gowns should be worn to protect HCWs’ arms and exposed body areas during procedures and patient-care activities. Isolation Gowns are especially important when anticipating contact with clothing, blood, bodily fluids, secretions, and excretions.
In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, there are currently many types of isolation gowns available on the market. Different protective gowns will offer varying resistance to blood and other bodily fluids, depending on the material, impermeability, and use. Studies confirm that the use of protective isolation gowns can be associated with a reduced infection rate from microorganism and liquid transmission.
