What are Surgical Gowns?
A surgical gown is a personal protective garment intended to be worn by health care personnel during surgical procedures to protect both the patient and the health care personnel from the transfer of microorganisms, body fluids, and particulate matter. Based on the FDA, there are four levels of protective risk regarding medical gowns. Among them surgical gowns are considered as class II medical devices which require a 510(k) premarket notification.
Due to the controlled nature of surgical procedures, two critical zones of protection have been defined that include the front of the body from the shoulders to knees and the arms from the wrist cuff to above the elbow. The entire front of the medical gown is required to have a barrier performance of at least level 1. The back of the surgical gown, however, may be non protective.
Surgical Isolation Gowns
According to the FDA, surgical isolation gowns are used when there is a medium to high risk of contamination. As a result, in these types of gowns, the critical zones are larger than the traditional ones. In other words, all areas of the surgical isolation gown except for bindings, cuffs, and hems are considered critical zones of protection. Also, surgical isolation gowns are regulated by the FDA as a Class II medical device that requires a 510(k) premarket notification. Moreover, the fabric used in these types of gowns is best to cover as much of the body as is appropriate for the intended use.

In addition, GT Medical is able to provide gowns made up of higher or lower gsm fabric, starting from17 up to 90 gsm. Moreover, our product provides a 360 degree coverage with an elastic wrist.
