Surgical Gowns

The Basics

A gown provides a barrier to prevent blood and body fluids from the procedure from reaching the clinician (and the other way around). Everyone knows that. Did you know that not all barriers are created equal?
Let’s run it down for you!

Base Material of Gown – key to barrier performance

The type of the base material and how it is constructed is the most important factor in barrier performance. Think about this analogy: if wearing a tee shirt in the rain – does a heavier material repel the water any better than a lighter material? Of course not. A different material – such as the material in a rain coat – does the trick! So material choice in gowns is the #1 factor in your gown barrier.

The majority of veterinary gowns are made of one of these base materials: Cotton/Muslin, Spunlaced Polyester or
Spunbond-Meltblown- Spunbond (called SMS).
By far – on all measures – SMS is the best material for gowns.

Which Gown is Right For My Practice?

The gown of choice – will have enough barrier protection for your bloodiest cases (but not too much). Comfort is key too. The greater the degree of protection built into the gown, the more body heat is trapped within for the wearer, which can be uncomfortable on longer cases. And the additional barrier comes as a higher cost as well. So it’s important not to buy ‘too much’ gown if it’s not necessary.
