Two Surgical Undergloves – the choice is yours

Current market trends show that increasing numbers of theatre staff choose to double glove. The reason for this is the need to better protect themselves against exposure to blood-borne pathogens, particularly Hepatitis B (HBV), Hepatitis C (HVC) and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

Double gloving is a very effective method to reduce exposure to blood-borne pathogens (HVB, HCV and HIV), as it cuts down by a factor of 10 the number of potential exposures. Routine double gloving, particularly during orthopaedic or general procedures, which carry a high risk of perforating the outer glove, is the best way to build a high level of protection.

Double gloving is easy to implement, as the latest generation of surgical gloves are designed to support double gloving. To balance the security of double gloving with individual needs such as comfort and sensitivity, it is recommended to test different options of double gloving i.e Gammex® PF Underglove or Encore® Underglove.

Now Ansell has two underglove options for the healthcare professional - Gammex® PF Underglove and Encore® Underglove – the choice is yours!
