Level 3 Sterile Surgical Gown
Main Benefits of the Level 3 Surgical Gown
The AAMI Level 3 surgical gown is designed to provide a barrier to larger amounts of fluid penetration through splatter and some fluid exposure through soaking than Level 2 surgical gowns. To ensure the gown is suitable for use, it must go through 2 tests to determine the barrier protection performance. The first test being pressurizing the material, and the second is by water impacting the surface of the gown material.
Testing the gown
AAMI standards call for a surgical gown to meet the requirements mentioned above for AATCC 42 and AATCC 127 in the critical zones in order to be labeled an AAMI Level 3 gown. What areas are included in the critical zones? There are typically 4 different areas that must pass within the critical zones, including two in the front chest and two on the sleeves. If a product passes AATCC 42 and AATCC 127 in all applicable areas, then it qualifies as an AAMI Level 3 surgical gown.
These Gowns should be worn in situations where there is a moderate level of risk. Other activities include arterial blood draw, inserting an IV, Emergency Room situations, and trauma scenarios.
Surgical isolation gowns are used when there is a medium to high risk of contamination and a need for larger critical zones than traditional surgical gowns. Surgical isolation gowns, like surgical gowns, are regulated by the FDA as a Class II medical device that requires a 510(k) premarket notification.
All areas of the surgical isolation gown except bindings, cuffs, and hems are considered critical zones of protection. Further, it must meet the highest liquid barrier protection level for which the gown is rated. All seams must have the same liquid barrier protection as the rest of the gown. Additionally, the fabric of the surgical isolation gown should cover as much of the body as is appropriate for the intended use.
