are disposable gloves which are used to cover a surgeon’s or physician’s hands during surgery. They are designed to reduce the risk of transferring pathogen’s and contaminants from the health care provider to the patient, while also protecting the health care provider from any contaminants from the patient.
Surgical gloves are often made to a higher standard than examination gloves, as they provide a high level of protection, and so are used in any high risk situation. For this reason they can also be used by medical professionals who provide care to patients in isolation. Surgical gloves are often made to a more precise size, and with higher sensitivity, to allow for the most accurate handling of instruments.
Latex Surgical Gloves for a long time have been the benchmark standard type of glove, as latex has been the first material to be used for surgical gloves. Although, they come with some issues mainly for people with latex allergies, they have also a lot of benefits as latex is an excellent material for surgical gloves. They come with an excellent fit, high tactile comfort, and also have high sensitivity, durability, and prove to be an excellent barrier protection. As well as this, they have a high puncture and chemical resistance, and can therefore be used in all high-risk situations such as when handling chemotherapy agents, or during surgery.
Nitrile Surgical Gloves have become popular in recent years due to the excellent features they provide. These include: excellent tear resistance, chemical resistance against various chemicals, tactile sensitivity, barrier protection, and high durability. As well as this, they are suitable for people with latex allergies.
Polyisoprene Surgical Gloves are made of polyisoprene which is a synthetic material which has properties very similar to latex. This material is considered a synthetic latex that has the advantage of being allergy-free, similar to Nitrile in this regard, but still more closely resembles the properties of latex which is why it is preferred by some medical professionals over Nitrile. Polyisoprene is the most expensive material for surgical glove production, but continues to be an increasingly popular option.
