Medical Gloves Applicable Scope
Medical Gloves Applicable scope
Since the 1980s, the use of medical gloves has been a growing concern as people gradually raise awareness of HIV / AIDS and other blood-borne diseases. Gloves play a very important role in protecting patients and caregivers and infection control. However, if used improperly, the role of gloves will be counterproductive, become the vector of pathogens. Therefore, proper use of gloves is important for protecting patients and nurses.
1) Classification of synthetic raw materials latex gloves, polyethylene gloves and neoprene gloves and so on. Latex gloves are thin and soft and feel good. But because of the presence of fine holes, increased bacteria and other pathogenic microorganisms permeability, and can not soak in ethanol, mineral oil, can not be stored in high temperature or low temperature environment, otherwise it will increase the permeability of gloves, thereby reducing Protective effects. Polyethylene gloves made of polyvinyl chloride, small pores less bacteria and other pathogenic microorganisms is not easy to pass, but the elasticity, touch latex gloves are poor, and can not be recycled, neoprene gloves with latex ingredients less latex gloves Tolerant stretch. Latex gloves easy to cause allergic reactions, followed by chloroprene gloves, polyethylene gloves most likely to cause allergic reactions.
2) Classification by purpose One is to prevent medical personnel from being infected with medical gloves such as those used to contact the patient's blood and body fluids, to treat the patient's used dressing device, to scrub the surface of the console and to hold the chemical.
3) The scope of application includes: (1) contact or expect contact with infectious substances, such as the patient's secretions, excreta, body fluids, blood, etc .; (2) medical staff finger damage, and contact with infectious patients; 3) health care personnel contact open window or the implementation of invasive aseptic operation.
Medical check gloves use common sense:
First, the clinical need to use gloves:
1, direct contact: blood pressure, body temperature pulse, subcutaneous and intramuscular injection, transport patients
2. Indirect contact: the use of telephone, writing medical instruments, the operation of computers, the release of oral medicine, replacement of clothing, mobile patient equipment.
Third, the need to wear gloves:
1, before the aseptic operation
2, contact with blood, body fluids, damaged skin or mucous membrane before.
3, contact with the implementation of isolated patients before and around the area before.
