HALYARD* MICROCOOL* Breathable Impervious Surgical Gowns

Comfort Drives Performance

 

To be at the very top of your game in the OR, you've got to have years of experience, top-notch training, and a little something extra to deliver that critical boost of cool, collected confidence. That's why comfort is designed into every HALYARD* MICROCOOL* Surgical Gown.

Proven Protection for the Surgical Team

The OR can be a very hazardous environment, where clinicians routinely risk exposure to blood, fluid, and pathogens. Rigorous industry standards2 cite the most important properties for surgical gowns:

  • Fluid resistance
  • Microbial resistance
  • Flame resistance
  • Lint and abrasion resistance

MICROCOOL* Gowns provide the perfect balance of these essential properties.

 

How Important is comfort?

When it comes to surgery, comfort is more than a matter of personal preference. According to one study conducted in Norway (Longo et al, 2009)4:

 

"The user's perception of the thermal situation is extremely important in a surgical setting. If the surgeon feels better, their work performance will most likely improve. Small physiological improvements might constitute a significant difference in this situation, which demands a high degree of precision and concentration."

 

Our patented microporous fabric is composed of a thin yet strong layer of breathable film enclosed in layers of soft, nonwoven fabric. The film layer permits moisture vapor to pass easily through the gown while preventing penetration of bacteria and blood and body fluids.
