A sterile operating room environment is important to prevent infections and maintain patient safety during surgery. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), surgical site infections (SSIs) can lead to significant morbidity, mortality, and additional healthcare costs. The WHO recommends the use of surgical drapes as part of a comprehensive strategy to prevent SSIs(sources:World Health Organization. Global guidelines for the prevention of surgical site infection. 2016. ).
The use of disposable surgical drapes is a crucial component of maintaining a sterile environment in the operating room. In addition to preventing the spread of infection, they also protect both the patient and healthcare workers from potential hazards during surgery. In this article, we see the added value of Nonwoven Fabric and quality disposable drapes.
Non-woven fabric is a popular material for disposable surgical drapes due to its many advantages. First, non-woven fabric is made from fibers that are bonded together, rather than woven. This results in a material that is strong, durable, and tear-resistant. Additionally, non-woven fabric is lightweight and breathable, which can help reduce the risk of skin irritation or overheating for the patient during surgery.
Another advantage of non-woven fabric is its ability to act as a barrier against microorganisms. Non-woven fabric can be made with various levels of barrier protection, depending on the intended use. This makes it an excellent choice for surgical drapes, as it can help prevent the spread of infections from the patient to the surgical team and vice versa.
Finally, non-woven fabric is cost-effective and easy to manufacture, which can help keep the cost of disposable surgical drapes low. This is important, as disposable surgical drapes are used once and then discarded, making cost a critical factor in their selection.
