Disposable medical protective suit refers to protective clothing used by medical personnel (public health personnel, cleaning personnel, doctors, nurses, etc.) and personnel entering specific medical and health areas (such as patients, hospital visitors, personnel entering epidemic areas, etc.).
1. Disposable medical protective suit is the work clothes of medical and chemical personnel, which can isolate germs, harmful ultrafine dust, acid solution, salt solution, and keep the environment clean.
2. The main purpose of disposable medical protective suit is to prevent the penetration of water, harmful or toxic chemicals, blood or body fluids that may carry pathogens.
This is because medical personnel often come into contact with sources of infection in medical emergencies, so medical protective suit needs good barrier performance to effectively isolate pathogenic bacteria and ensure the safety of medical personnel.
3. The material of disposable medical protective suit is mainly polypropylene non-woven fabric, which can prevent static electricity, has better air permeability, does not accumulate a lot of water vapor, has a smooth surface, and will not be contaminated by some chemical substances.
It doesn't stick to it, so it can isolate many toxic bacteria well, and the texture is soft, which is more comfortable to wear on the body, non-burning, non-irritating, and harmless to the skin.
The ranges of protective coverall suit from the positive pressure airtight anti-penetration protective clothing with the highest protective performance to the ordinary particulate protective clothing. The performance of various types of protective clothing varies greatly and the scope of application is also different.
From the perspective of style, protective clothing is divided into one-piece, split and skirt structures. The materials and performance are different, and they are divided into one-time use and repeated use. Protective clothing is generally divided into four levels according to the protection level, namely:
1. Class A
Fully enclosed air-tight protective clothing with face shield can provide the most complete protection against gases and liquids in the surrounding environment, it is a set of fully enclosed, chemical-resistant clothing, gloves and boots and a set of isolated respiratory protection .
It is mainly used for the simultaneous existence of the highest level of respiratory and skin hazards and is in an unknown dangerous environment. Due to the high cost, it is not recommended for the prevention and control of pneumonia caused by new coronavirus infection.
2. Class B
Totally enclosed non-airtight protective clothing, used only for respiratory protection when the toxic gas is not serious to the skin, and unlike class A, it includes a set of non-enclosed, splash-proof and chemical-resistant clothing, which can provide the same level as class A. Same liquid protection, but it's not hermetically sealed.
The main focus is to protect liquid toxic substances, not gaseous toxic substances. Due to the high cost of B-level protective clothing, it is not recommended for the prevention and control of pneumonia caused by new coronavirus infection. It can be used in emergency situations.
3. Class C
One-piece chemical protective clothing, which includes splash-proof clothing with filter protection to fully cover the face, medical protective suit is the protective clothing used by medical personnel and those entering specific medical and health areas.
The face protection device is an N95 medical protective mask, and the medical protective suit provides a barrier and protection for the medical staff to contact the blood, body fluids, secretions and particles in the air of potentially infectious patients at work.
4. Class D
General workwear, limited to overalls or other workwear attached to trousers, boots and gloves, medical lab coats (white lab coats) fall into this category.
