Wearing medical latex gloves can reduce the risk of cross-infection between patients and medical staff, and how to use gloves correctly is a prerequisite for reducing contact with harmful factors and ensuring the integrity of the gloves. The editor of Zibo Dongmai Medical Company will share medical latex with you. The correct use of gloves is as follows:


1. Wear dry gloves. Dip your hands with talcum powder (or medical starch) to facilitate wearing gloves. Hold the inner surface of the glove with your right hand. Take out a pair of dry gloves. Put your left hand into the left glove first. ,Put your left hand into the outer circle of the right hand reflexed part, and then put your right hand into the glove (you can wear the right glove first); pull the reflexed part of the glove over the cuff without exposing the wrist; before wearing the glove , The hands should not touch the outer surface of the gloves. After wearing the gloves, they should not touch the skin. Afterwards, rinse the talcum powder on the gloves with sterile saline before operation. To

2. After hand disinfection with wet gloves, wear gloves while wet, take a pair of wet gloves from the glove holder, put water in the gloves, put your left hand into the gloves, raise your left hand slightly to let the water flow out of your wrist Put it on, then stretch your left hand into the outer circle of the reflexed part and wear the right glove, raise your right hand to make the water flow out of the wrist (the right glove is also acceptable), put on the surgical gown, and turn the glove back to the cuff Do not expose your wrists. Hospitals with conditions should generally not use this method. To

3. Wearing double gloves wearing double gloves can reduce the chance of the wearer being exposed to danger. If you need to wear double gloves in a specific operation (such as chemotherapy, bone marrow aspiration), you need loose gloves so that you can Put it on the other one. To

4. Change gloves After touching the suspiciously contaminated area or items of the same patient, the gloves should be changed before touching the mucous membrane. Before touching non-pollutants or needing to dispose of other patients, you should take off your gloves, wash your hands or wash with disinfectant immediately to avoid spreading microorganisms to other patients or objects. To

5. Time to wear gloves The longer the gloves are worn, the more vulnerable the protective barrier is to damage. The use of gloves under harsh conditions or exposure to a variety of chemicals may cause fatigue of the gloves. Therefore, the gloves should be changed appropriately during the operation. During the operation, if the gloves are damaged or suspected to be contaminated, they should be replaced immediately. To

6. In the process of taking off the gloves, the source of infection will contaminate the outer surface of the gloves. It is very important to remove the gloves correctly. Do not pull the gloves when you take them off. The gloves should be turned over and taken off gently. Try not to touch the outside of the gloves. The taken off gloves should be disinfected in time and should not be thrown into the waste bucket. Wrongly taking off the gloves may lead to the spread of pollutants outside the gloves. At this time, no matter how good the barrier function is, it is meaningless.

As long as the medical latex gloves are used correctly, the risk of daily cross-infection between patients and medical staff can be reduced. The increase in hospital infection rate is not only related to the destruction of the protective barrier of gloves, but also to the presence of dust, chemicals, cross-contact contamination and incorrect handling of gloves. The correct choice and use of gloves can reduce the hospital infection rate.
