Surgical Gloves

Home > Medical Disposables > Surgical Gloves

Basically, Surgical Gloves are disposable gloves which are used during medical examinations and ailed procedures that help prevent any kind of contamination between caregivers and patients. Medical gloves are designed from various polymers including latex, nitrile rubber, vinyl and neoprene. They generally come unpowdered, or powdered with cornstarch to lubricate the gloves, which make them easier to put on the hands. Earlier Lycopodium powder and talc were used but were gradually replaced as they tend to cause skin irritation. There are two types of surgical gloves: exam and surgical. Surgical gloves have more specific sizing with a improved precision and sensitivity and are developed to a higher standard.
