Protective Isolation Gowns: Essential Hygiene Products for Medical Professionals

The isolation gown is a crucial piece of personal protective equipment that plays a vital role in safeguarding medical professionals and patients from infectious diseases. Additionally, it serves as a protective barrier against other hazardous materials. Isolation gowns are available in various materials to accommodate different needs. However, it is essential to prioritise high-quality gowns that offer optimal protection within the medical setting.


Who wears isolation gowns?

Medical professionals typically wear isolation gowns to protect their arms and other exposed body parts while providing patient care and during procedures, especially when they anticipate contact with bodily fluids, excretions, secretions, blood, and clothing. During the COVID-19 pandemic, even patients were asked to wear them for infection control. 



A single-use isolation gown is meant for non-surgical environments. It has a tie-string closure at the waist and neck. It may be made of plastic, but it’s comfortable and lightweight to wear. Plus, it ensures reliable protection where there is a risk of fluid or pathogen transmission or contamination. Ideally, isolation gowns must have knitted cuffs for increased safety and comfort during prolonged wear.

Isolation gowns can be made of various materials, like polypropylene. Some are made of chlorinated polyethene elastomer and non-woven material. If you require a higher level of protection, consider a gown made of waterproof PP/PE fabric with a reinforced film of breathable barrier. It’s ideal for applications like pathology labs, suturing, blood draws, and other similar circumstances.


Tips for choosing the best isolation gowns

Think about the purpose of the isolation gown, including who will wear it and the activity involved. Many gowns come in universal sizes, but some are available in specific sizes. Ideally, they should fit the wearer well for maximum protection.
