1.Definition of medical protective clothing
Medical protective clothing: For medical staffs and related professionals who are exposed to the susceptible environment.
In order to protect both patients and themselves from the transfer of microorganisms through blood and body fluids, the personal protective equipment (PPE) is highly essential, such as the safety clothing, protective gloves and goggles. Protective suit ranked the second-most-used item of personal protective equipment（PPE）, just after the gloves.
For the medical workers, the isolation suits always are used to protect exposed body areas and HCWs’ arms during curing procedures and patient-care activities when there is risk of being infected by contacting with bodily fluids, secretions, clothing, blood, and excretions.
Protective clothing outlook
Coveralls: It is usually made by one-piece design and provide cover for one person from head-to-foot sometimes with attached booties.
Also, the attached mask or a hood will be included also. Its main function is to help protect medical personnel from the exposure of virus or bacteria.
The coverall is generally made from disposable and lightweight materials and offers 360-degree protection on account of their design features for covering the whole body of wearers, body positions such as lower legs, back, as well as even head and feet are included.
Through wearing appropriate protective coveralls, which possibly helps to provide a barrier for eliminating or reducing the contact or droplet exposure both of them are the way to transmit the corona virus. Hence, in order to protect the medical workers who are near the suspected or confirmed patients (within 1 meter), the coverall is the must.
At present, it is hard to make the comparison among various coveralls for the lack off solid proofs to define which one is more effective than another in respect to reduce the transmission among people. Coverall is not hard to be worn and removed. Also an apron can be added over the coverall for the additional protection for medical workers during the whole health-care procedures in the infectious areas.
Generally, the overalls have various standards that vary from the potential exposure to solid biologically contaminated particles to protect medical workers from chemical hazards.
2. What Are Common Types And Materials of Medical Protective Suit.
Medical protective clothing is always made from the combination of hats, tops, and trousers. There are mainly two kinds of medical protective clothing: protective clothing and isolation gown.
Their main difference is that comparing with teh isolation coverall suit, medical protective clothing is more durable and has higher protection grade, also the better protection performance, besides, their protection targets and the protection theory are also different.
|Difference||Medical protective clothing||Isolation gown|
|Different uses||Protective clothing is the clothing worn by people in certain areas like medical places, entering the infectious disease area.||Isolation gown is the clothes used at someplace like medical staff and family members to visit patients.|
|Different uses||Mainly to protect the medical workers from the infection, which is belong to one-way isolation.||This two-way isolation to protect both the medical staff and the patient from be infected|
2.2 The Common Raw Materials
The frequent materials applied in disposable medical protective coverall suit are polyethylene breathable film/nonwoven composite, polypropylene textile adhesive fabric, SMS nonwovens, new polyester fiber, polymer coated fabric.
Nowadays, many manufacturers apply polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) material to make medical protective clothing, PTFE is a type of high quality polymer, which is able to resist water pressure and can discharge water vapor by micropores. The following are related properties of these materials:
Protective Clothing Material Related Performance
Polypropylene Fabric： It is able to go through antistatic treatment and antibacterial, but its resistance of hydrostatic pressure is relatively low, and its ability to block effectively virus particles is poor. Besides, it can only be applied as disinfection bag cloth, sterile surgical clothing, and other common protective articles.
New Polyester Fiber： This material is similar with the traditional textiles that is able to be treated with antibacterial, antistatic and so on, but its resistance of hydrostatic pressure is also relatively low, and its efficiency to block virus particles is low.
PPSB+PE Film Fabric
Polymer Coated Fabric： There are various types of coatings for protective fabrics, for instance, polyethylene, PVC, and so on. This kind of protective coveralls is good to resist waterproof, barrier bacteria, it is able to be reused, however, its moisture permeability is no good and uncomfortable. The PTFE is the high-end laminated fabric, super waterproof and moisture permeable composite fabric.
SMS Nonwovens： Its fiber diameter is excellent, the cloth is soft, drapey, and fluffy, its filter resistance is a small and good effect, the resistance of hydrostatic pressure is good, but its strength is low and the wear resistance is no good.
Polyethylene Breathable Fabric
Polyethylene Breathable Film Nonwoven： composites that has a brilliant ability to block the penetration of bacteria and liquid with good tensile strength, good air permeability, and it is comfortable to be worn.

5. The assessment of the exposure level
5.1The Transmission Path
The critic factor to choose the suitable personal protective equipment is figuring out the level and the hazards of the exposure.
- Contact (direct and indirect)
- respiratory droplets
- airborne droplet nuclei
They are the most common transmission routes. Specifically, speaking, the direct or indirect contact is the most frequent method to transfer microorganisms directly from one person to another. What is more, the direct contact happens when there is broken skin or mucous membranes located areas, for instance, the nose, eyes, mouth.
Except the blood, other kinds of body fluids also should be included (but not limit), such as semen, vomit, sweat, urine and saliva etc..The infect from coughing, sneezing, or talking is usually defined as the respiratory droplets. Besides, the airborne transmission always happens when diffusion of small particles or airborne droplet nuclei in the respirable size range containing infectious agents.
As thus, it is able to build up a barrier by taking suitable protective coveralls suit to eliminate or reduce the risk of contact and droplet exposure, moreover, to cut off the transferring route of microorganisms between patients and healthcare persons. .
5.2 The Assessment of Potential Exposure
Before selecting the protective clothing, the susceptible people and exposed works should better make an assessment about the potential exposures to the transmission routs first.
Usually, the exposure risk is dependent on the transmission intensity of the disease and the severity of symptoms: For example, the present Corona virus disease (COVID-19) that is an highly infectious disease caused by a latest found corona virus. Its severe symptoms are strongly resulted from the virus.
Beside, the exposure opportunity: the opportunities to be exposed to the virus, the higher risk of being infected. For instance, the medical workers who are take care off the infected patients and have close contact with them for a long time can increase the opportunities of transmission.
Such as in the case of corona virus, it mainly spreads by droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, therefore, it is very importance for the susceptible group to protect themselves from respiratory infection.
Last but not least, some other essential factors should be also took into consideration, such as modes of transmission, pressures and types of contact, as well as duration and type of tasks.
6.Standard of Current Medical Protective Coverall Suits
Nowadays, there are various virus-resistant and medical protective clothing in the global market for medical works and relevant persons, which includes surgical gowns, coveralls, gloves, goggles and isolation gowns.
Before making decision of buying the most suitable protective equipment, people should check carefully of the available information of certain protective coverall suits type, such as its protective levels and potential limitations. To well do this step, understanding the relevant standards protective clothing is critic.
6.1 American and European standards
Clothing that is qualified under different standard methods may provide different levels of protection actually. The protective coverall suits and other medical protective materials used to protect people against infectious agents can be defined into various standards.
In the United States and Europe, ANSI/AAMI PB70 External, EN 13795, EN 14126, and NFPA 1999 are the most common standards, among them ANSI/AAMI PB70 is the standard for the clothing that can be used in the healthcare industry, for instance the surgical and isolation gowns.
Particularly, EN 13795 is used for surgical gowns, and EN 14126 is used for protective coveralls, moreover, NFPA 1999-2013 is intended for emergency medical first res-ponders and medical first receivers are also covered in its scope.
6.2 The Detailed Information of The Common Quality Standard
|EN 14126||Protective clothing: this is the performance demands and tests ways for protective suits against infective items.|
|EN 13795||Clean air suits and surgical drapes, or gowns, applied as medical devices for patients, medical worker and devices – General demands for processors, manufacturers, and products, test methods, performance levels and performance requirements.|
|NFPA 1999||Standard for protective clothing and ensembles for emergency medical cases.|
|ISO 16603||Clothing for prevent contacts with blood or body fluids. Determination for resistance of protective clothing materials to be penetrated by blood and body fluids – Test method through using synthetic blood|
|ISO 16604||Clothing is for avoiding contacts with blood and body fluids. Determination of resistance of protective clothing materials to be penetrated by blood-borne pathogens – Test method through applying Phi-X174 bacteriophage|
NFPA 1999: Make sure the total protective ability of protective suits, liquid barrier performance testing are applied by the Liquid Integrity method of ASTM F1359, as well as the specimen seam is demanded to have a specific strength and resistance for microbial penetration.
ISO 16603 and ISO 16604: Materials of disposable protective clothing are similar, and the same detection means are applied in the testing of synthetic blood penetration and the testing of microbial penetration.
EN 13795: Ensure protective performance test of disposable surgical clothing in both dry and wet conditions.
6.3 EU Protection Classifications for the Protective Suit
Standards allowed protective coveralls are usually classified by a ‘Type’. This Type indicates what they protect against. It relates back to experiments performed according to EN Standards. Briefly speaking, these standards cover a wide range of individual performance experiments that inspect resistance against:
- Crackingand abrasion
- Tear resistanceand tensile strength
- Resisting strengthto punctures
- Resisting strengthto chemical permeation
- Liquid repellence
- Resisting strengthto aerosols and spray
- Resisting strengthto ignition
Once the protective clothing has passed a series of experiments, Standards will divided them into one or more types, which is dependent on their suitability for different applications.
Protective suits are classified into categories ranging from 1-6, which indicate the level of protection that each suit offers. Type 1 offers the highest level of protection. All protective suits should be made in accordance to Category III in order to be designated protective clothing.
This signifies that there are specific basic demands for the design of the suit, which must be inspected. If the protective suit is attached with detailed instructions in accordance with regulation, however, no type marking indicates that it can only be applied to prevent ordinary dirt.
Types 6 & 6B–Light Spray Protection
This kind of covers suits that usually prevent light spray and splashes. It is different with the type 3 and 4 spray tests in which there is less quantity of liquid sprayed, and no build-up of liquid on the suit. It is the lowest level of chemical protection and is aimed to be applied if risks have been estimated as low and a full liquid permeation barrier is not demanded.
Types 5 & 5B–Airborne Particles
These garments are complete-body protective items covering the arms, trunk and legs, for instance, one-piece coveralls or two-piece suits, which is able to be with or without hoods, foot covers and visors. These are experimented to rate their protective strength to dust and particles.
They are appropriate for processes like light industrial cleaning, site preparation and handling insulation. Type 5 Category 3 rated coveralls are also appropriate for asbestos work, because they are disposable rather than reusable.
Coveralls that pass the experiment as Type 5 are under a test subject performing a series of movements in the suit while it is exposed to a dry aerosol with a particle size of 0.6um. The inward leakage of the aerosol must lower than a minimal threshold.
Types 4 & 4B–Spray Tight
Protection for splash-proof : Suits are allowed for the liquid saturation that can condense on the suit. The suits must be with welded seams. Has to conduct the penetration testing in accordance to EN 369 to offer information on protection related with individual chemicals, EN 14605. Type 4B prevents biologically contaminated particles, EN 14126.
Types 3 & 3B–Liquid Tight
Type 3 coveralls are made through sealed seams rather than stitched. Manufacturers must make them from a fabric that is liquid tight and is able to resist strong directional jets of a liquid chemical during the test. Moreover, the standard only accepts a tiny fraction of liquid to enter the garment before it is deemed a ‘fail’.
This is based on the breakthrough time of a strong liquid jet under high pressure. Then the assessors will rate the coverall a class, which is in relation to this breakthrough time: Class 1 is at the lower end of the scale with breakthrough taking just 10 minutes, whereas Class 6 withstands ingress for over 6 hours.
Type 2–Non-Gas tight
Limited gas-tightness. Suits is able to prevent liquids, dust, and vapours from penetrating at over pressure, EN 943.
Type 1–Gas tight
It refers to fully enclosed protective gas tight suits designed to prevent chemical contamination in the form of liquid or gas. These can be with or without an air line.
6.4 Medical gowns level
Medical protective clothing are one part of the PPE (personal protective equipment) that is always used in health care conditions with the purpose to protect the users from the risk of infection or illness when they are in contact with the liquid or solid containing potential infection.
Besides, they can also be applied to help the gown users avoiding the transferring microorganisms that may harm the patients who are vulnerable, for instance, those patients who have a weakened immune system.
The medical protective suits can be classified into different categories according to its usage environment, such as isolation gowns, surgical isolation gowns, procedural gowns, operating room gowns, surgical gowns, as well as nonsurgical gowns.
Level 1: The lowest risk: the basic care, cover gown for visitors, standard isolation, in a standard medical unit.
Level 2: Low risk: suturing, in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), blood draw, or a pathology lab are took as the low risk
Level 3: Moderate risk: inserting an Intravenous (IV) line, in the Emergency Room, for trauma cases and during arterial blood draw.
Level 4: High risk: when pathogen resistance is demanded, infectious diseases are suspected, fluid intense procedures, surgery.
7.Factors to consider when selecting the protective suits
7.1 Factors to consider
The protective clothing should confirm to the regulations of respective regulatory agencies, this one is the basic. Also, its durability should be inspected, such as seam strength, tensile strength, and abrasion resistance.
What is more, the protective clothing will be took by medical workers for a long time usually, so it is very import to make sure the protective suits is comfortable, for instance, the air permeability and breath-ability.
In addition, ergonomics/human factors, cost, availability, electrostatic properties, flammability, and integration with other types of PPE also should be took into consideration when selecting the protective clothing.
Among them, interfacing with other items of personal protective equipment is particular important for the medical workers to wear, such as the face/eye or respiratory protective equipment with the hood or collar area of the gown or coverall and gloves with with the sleeve of the gown or coverall, which interfaces are critic to the overall protection of health-care persons, on account of the cooperation of the various kinds of personal protective equipment (PPE) offers the protection at the same time.
Further consideration that should be took into consideration when selecting the coveralls and gowns is the physical features of the working environment and the certain activities of medical workers. Because different environment has different requirements for the protection level of the gowns and coveralls.
For instance, some environment is highly infectious, touching a chair or a table that with blood, saliva or body fluid can cause the infection if the protective clothing is not with the suitable standard. Because, the overalls and gowns are not able to provide the required protection in the environment that exceed its protection levels.
- Good protection: Making sure a reliable barrier that is able to prevent particles above 1 micron, pressurized liquids as well as aerosols,
- Durability: They are brilliant resistance to abrasion and tearing, allowing them to maintain their protective ability even under extreme operating procedures,
- Comfort: Making sure the protective suits are made from the materials that are“breathable”, for instance, air and water-vapour permeable.
- Protection from pressurised liquid jets: They should be resistant to high-pressure water columns, and in compliance with the demand for liquid tightness for type 3 and 4 protective coveralls as the requirements of European standards for chemical protective coveralls,
- No adhesion of fluids or particles: Guarantee the surface of the material can prevent a large amount of organic and inorganic liquids from getting inside it, and particles do not adhere to it.
7.2 Questions to ask before buying the protective coveralls
There are so a lot of variables in each individual application that it is hard to be specific about what is best. Therefore, all protective suits suggestions come with a risk disclaimer that it is the final responsibility of users to ensure the suit is appropriate for the application.
Every selection should start with a risk stating to estimate the type of risk, the time period of exposure and level of protection demanded. Here are some key factors to consider before making the decision of selecting the coveralls:
- Is the standardof protection appropriate for the application?
- How strongor heavy duty are the coveralls?
- What is the quality like, such asdetails including the zipper, seams, fabric?
- Willis it fit and comfortable? Will the size ranges be suitable?
- Are the coveralls singleor multiple use? What should responsible disposal look like?
- Are they easy to put on and take off?
8.How to Wear and Remove Coverall
8.1 How to wear
Protective Clothing Wear Illustration
If available, protective suits with hooks is able to help secure the cuffs of the gown over the inner glove to help guarantee there is not a gap between the glove and the cuff of the protective clothing.
Wear your coverall with the zipper in the front. and the zipper should be pulled up completely. Make sure the the coverall with suitable size to make there is no any restrictions of movement. Cuffs of inner gloves should be tucked under the sleeve of the coverall.
When a protective coverall with thumb hooks is not used, the users should consider using facilities to tape the sleeve of the coverall over the inner glove to avoid potential skin exposure from gaps between the sleeve and inner glove during any procedures.
Besides, when taping is used, a tab should be made through folding the tape over at the end. It will help make it is easy to be removed during the doffing process. Pat attention to remove tape gently. According to some experiences in some facilities, taping may increase risk through making the doffing procedure harder.
8.2 How to Remove Safety
Protective Clothing Remove Illustration
Generally, standing in front of the mirror, firstly, tilt the head back to reach the zipper, then pull down the zipper completely while pay attention to do not touch any scrubs or skin. Next, begin to remove the coverall from the head to the bottom.
When the shoulder is free, the outer gloves can be removed when getting the arms out of the sleeves. Later, roll the coverall to the top of the isolation boots by hands with the inner gloves. At last, pull of the coverall by using one boot from the other boot and vice-versa, and get away from the coverall and discard it on the appointed container.
9.The Difference Between the Protective Suits and the Isolation Gown
The Protective Coveralls
Coverall and isolation gowns are both designed to protect torso of medical care providers from exposure to virus. Though coveralls specifically offer 360-degree protection for the reason that they are designed to cover the whole body.
Such as, back aims, lower legs, sometimes head and feet also, the design of medical isolation gowns does not offer continuous full-body protection (for example, there is usually possible openings in the back, and coverage only to the mid-calf ).
Through using suitable protective clothing, it is possibly able to create a barrier to reduce or eliminate droplet and contact exposure, which both known the ways that can transmit COVID-19, therefore, protecting medical workers working in close distance (within 1 meter) of suspect or confirmed COVID-19 cases or their secretions.
The Isolation Gown
Coveralls and isolation gowns are deemed equally acceptable as there is lacking comparative evidence to show which one is more effective than the other regarding to reduce transmission to medical workers. Gowns generally are considerably more easier to put on and to remove.
An apron can also be worn on the top of the gown during the entire time the medical workers ares in the treatment area. Coveralls and gowns have strict standards that range from preventing exposure to biologically contaminated solid particles to protecting from chemical hazards.
Personal protective equipment is a necessary to protect you from the outside hazard materials such as the virus and infectious particles. In order to make sure the appropriate protection, it is important to know how to select the right PPE according to the certain using environment. Besides, knowing how to use and how to deal with the PPE after the procedure are also critic.
For safety, the proper use, maintenance and training of protective suits are critic. In any conditions, please make sure that the product is complete, the places of use and wear correctly, and should wear it all the time during exposure procedure and replace when it is necessary.
Before using, when you need to use other safety protective devices scuh as masks and goggles, users should read the product descriptions carefully to make sure that the protective devices are correctly matched.
After using, in the procedure of removing the protective equipment, washing hands or disinfecting your hands with all aspects of the procedure to prevent pollution. All the protective articles, except the the ones can be sterilized and reused, and the other disposable items should be put in a designated container for centralized handling.
