Medical gowns are an essential part of personal protective equipment that keeps health care workers and hospital visitors safe. Level 1 CPE gowns are disposable and can be used for basic protection in low-risk situations.
Level 1 CPE gowns provide an extra layer of protection for your clothing and can be used as a precautionary measure. They are commonly provided for hospital visitors, used as isolation gowns in quarantine centers, or given to individuals in standard medical units. Level 1 CPE gowns should not be washed or reused.
CPE gowns are made of chlorinated polyethylene, which is waterproof, blood repellant, and acts as an effective microbial barrier. CPE gowns are breathable, thin, and light, making them comfortable to wear.
Surgical gowns and surgical isolation gowns are regulated by the FDA. Surgical gowns and non-surgical gowns have critical zones, which refer to the areas of the gown that are expected to receive liquid contact. Areas A, B, and C (the front of the gown) are considered critical zones for a surgical or surgical isolation gown and must meet at least the level 1 requirements for barrier performance. The FDA defines this as providing a slight barrier for minimal amounts of fluid penetration. Our high-quality Level 1 CPE gowns meet and exceed those standards in providing you with the crucial barrier protection you need.
