Standards for Gowns
Labeling that shows a product has been tested to and meets appropriate performance standards is one way for users and procurers to determine when to use a particular gown.
The performance of gowns is tested using consensus standards: American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F2407 is an umbrella document which describes testing for surgical gowns: tear resistance, seam strength, lint generation, evaporative resistance, and water vapor transmission.
Below is a summary of ASTM F2407 standard recognized by the FDA.
Tensile Strength: ASTM D5034, ASTM D1682
Tear Resistance: ASTM D5587(woven), ASTM D5587 (nonwoven), ASTM D1424
Seam Strength: ASTM D751 (stretch woven or knit)
Lint Generation:(ISO 9073 Part 10)
Water Vapor Transmission (Breathability): ASTM F1868 Part B, ASTM D6701 (nonwoven), ASTM D737-75
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Association of the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI): ANSI/AAMI PB70:2003 describes liquid barrier performance and classification of protective apparel and drapes intended for use in health care facilities.
Below is a table summarizing the ANSI/AAMI PB70 standard recognized by the FDA.
Gowns are examples of personal protective equipment used in health care settings. They are used to protect the wearer from the spread of infection or illness if the wearer comes in contact with potentially infectious liquid and solid material.
They may also be used to help prevent the gown wearer from transfering microorganisms that could harm vulnerable patients, such as those with weakened immune systems. Gowns are one part of an overall infection-control strategy.
