In operation theatres, there is a lot of contact that is made between the patient and the surgeon. Since everything needs to be done fast in order to ensure the life of the patient is saved, the surgeons’ and nurses’ operation wear may also come into contact with the patient being operated on. For this reason, it is very important to have surgical disposable operation theatre wears. This is because cleaning of the surgical wear does not guarantee total cleanliness after an operation. Cleaning the theatre wear and wearing them to another operation may pose a great risk of infection to other patients. Infection prevention disposables prevent this and ensure minimal risk of infections.
The other thing that differentiates the infection preventable disposables from the reusable wears is the fact that they are sonically sealed instead of being stitched. The importance of this is that it ensures prevents any strike through and also adds to the protection the surgeon gets. This is something that is incorporated even in the other wears such as hand protection wear and not just the gown.
Surgeons say this design gives them a lot of confidence when operating because they know they are protected from any infection and they can therefore ensure the same for their patients.
