How to choose the best type of disposable gloves

 

Hello, ladies!

I really missed writing here on the blog, and today, once again i came up with a very important tip for people who make frequent use of disposable gloves, whether through work in hospitals or laboratories, or simply for sporadic use.

Yes, it is important to know which material you use, because, depending on that, it reduces the risk of people with more sensitive skin and subject to the onset of allergies, for example.

Let's get the tips. 

Medical professionals at all levels of education and experience use disposable gloves to keep themselves and their patients safe. Having the right kind of gloves for patient care is important for hospitals, clinics, labs, physician offices, and mobile health units across the country. They are used every day by doctors, nurses, surgeons, lab techs, dentists, pharmacists, emergency responders and others who work in the field of healthcare.



1. Characteristics of Medical Disposable Gloves

Disposable gloves in the medical profession are usually categorized as either exam gloves or surgical gloves. Healthcare workers and caregivers normally wear exam gloves to protect themselves from contamination when in direct contact with a patient. More advanced surgical gloves are used by surgeons and operating room nurses to allow for greater precision, sensitivity, and sizing.

It is important that both exam gloves and surgical gloves be specialized to provide protection from disease and bodily fluids. They should also be comfortable to the touch, as to not make the professional or patient unnecessarily uncomfortable.

2. Best Materials for Medical Gloves

Exam gloves are made with latex, vinyl, and nitrile. Latex gloves have been the standard in medical offices for many years, and different brands and styles of them have various features. For example, some latex gloves have powder, while others do not, and some are thicker and longer than others.

Latex Gloves are used in high-risk situations that involve infectious material. They're elastic, strong, and biodegradable too. For providing mid-range barrier protection, latex is comfortable, flexible, and fits well. However, some professionals and patients are allergic to it.

Made from polyvinyl chloride, vinyl is a low-cost option that is soft, comfortable, and latex-free. These gloves can be sufficient to wear for low-risk tasks and touching non-hazardous materials. Vinyl gloves are may also be worn for less tactile work, but keep in mind that they are usually less durable than latex gloves.

Nitrile is a great general purpose material that is commonly used for exams, especially on patients with latex allergies. Nitrile is a very durable and tear-resistant material that makes it good to use with sharp objects and instruments. You can wear nitrile gloves for longer periods of time, and these gloves have a long shelf life. Ultimately, they provide high barrier protection and are able to resist chemicals and punctures in ways that latex and vinyl simply can't.

3. Accommodating Latex Allergies

One common misconception about latex allergies is that this is an allergy that you're born with. However, medical professionals are at a very high risk of developing this allergy over time due to their frequent exposure to latex gloves.

The common symptoms involved in this type of allergy include redness and irritation of the skin. But in rare cases, respiratory problems and shock have been reported. Many medical offices are moving towards non-latex gloves to reduce this risk for healthcare workers. It is also important to ask patients if they have a latex allergy before performing any type of medical exam.

4. Powdered and Unpowdered Medical Gloves

Medical professionals use both powered and unpowdered gloves in their line of work. Powdered Latex Gloves became popular in the industry because they are easier to take on and off and help to lubricate the hands. The powder in powdered gloves is usually cornstarch, which does not commonly cause any irritation.

However, the powder can be problematic if the powder finds its way into open cuts and wounds on the skin. The powder can prevent natural healing of skin tissue, which is why some healthcare workers choose to wear unpowdered gloves with inner coatings instead while examining certain patients.

5. Recommended Gloves for Medical Use

The decision of whether to buy latex, vinyl, or Nitrile Gloves largely comes down to how much protection you need. Each material has its pros and cons in the medical industry, so we recommend having some of each in your medical supply closet. You just never know who your next patient will be or what procedure will be required on any given day.

We have some great exam glove options for all three materials, and gloves with and without powder too. It's also worth mentioning that buying in bulk can save your medical office a substantial amount of money and ensure that you're ready for anything. With the right gloves nearby and ready for use, high-quality patient care has never been safer or more convenient.

I really hope you guys enjoyed the tip, and that this post has helped you in some way. Please rate and comment.

How to take care of your wig

 

Hello, ladies!

Today I have a very good and important tip for anyone who wears a wig, or who started to use it and still doesn't know very well how and how to maintain it, and most importantly, i brought up a tip from an online store where you can buy realistic and excellent quality wigs, so come with me. :)

Why do you choose a wig to wear? There are many reasons, for example, whether you want to protect your natural virgin hair from heat damage, you have experienced hair loss, or you simply want to change your look, wigs are a versatile and functional fashion accessory. Whether you are wearing a wig because of hair loss or you simply want to have fun with a new hairstyle, learn techniques for putting on and styling your wig. A well-styled and proper fitting wig looks so natural that no one will guess that it is not your real hair.

Make a haircut

A lot of wigs seem unnatural because they just look too perfect and too heavy. New wigs can look bulky and thick around the crown and sides, if so it is recommended that it is thinned out before use, so take some scissors and cut some random strands of hair toward the front of your wig.

Get rid of the shiny wig

While we aspire for the shiny hair, wigs can be a bit too shiny. Because synthetic wigs are typically made from plastic fibers, their gleam can be just plastic. However, there are methods that you can use to make your artificial hairdo's sheen more natural, and it's likely that you can get them easily.


Soak your wig in a cup of apple cider or white vinegar for 10 to 15 minutes if it is still too shiny after the shampoo. The acid may break down the shine barrier. Rinse your wig with shampoo and cold water afterward and let it air dry.

Baby powder can help dull your wig's luster. Dust half a handful of baby powder on your wig and brush it through your faux hair with a wig brush or your fingertips.

Dry shampoo can be a less messy alternative to baby powder. While baby powder won't make your wig look messy, it could make your bathroom counter top look like an episode of Narcos. You only need to spritz some dry shampoo on each layer of your wig and the artificial factitious shine is gone.

Lace Front Wigs

About hairline

You don't have to have a full fringe but having some kind of sweeping bangs conceals the hairline or most of it. I tend to favor wigs that already have some kind of bangs but you can easy pop into a hairdresser or if you are confident at cutting your own hair cut your own. Adjust your wig after you have put it on so that it sits on your head correctly. Line up the center part of the wig with the center of your forehead. Pull the wig down completely in the back, so that it fits correctly on your head.

At times it can be tricky to line up the front of your wig with your hairline. It can be even harder to find the position for your wig when your wig is a completely different color from your real hair. Buying wholesale wigs with roots similar to your current hair color will make your wig look more natural without having to do any additional work.
