Development and overview of medical gloves
Medical gloves are gloves used in medical examinations and procedures to help prevent cross-contamination between caregivers and patients. Medical gloves are made of different polymers, including latex, nitrile rubber, polyvinyl chloride and neoprene; they have no powder, or use cornstarch powder to lubricate the gloves to make them easier to wear on your hands.
Corn starch replaces Lycopodium powder and talcum powder, which are irritating to tissues, but even corn starch enters the tissues and hinders healing (such as during surgery). Therefore, hairless gloves are more often used during surgery and other sensitive procedures. A special manufacturing process is used to make up for the lack of powder.
There are two main types of medical gloves: examination and surgery. Surgical gloves have more accurate dimensions, better precision and sensitivity, and reach higher standards. Examination gloves can be sterile or non-sterile, while surgical gloves are usually sterile.
In addition to medicine, medical gloves are widely used in chemical and biochemical laboratories. Medical gloves provide some basic protection against corrosion and surface contamination. However, they are easily penetrated by solvents and various hazardous chemicals, and when the task involves immersing gloved hands in the solvent, they should not be used for dishwashing or other purposes.
