In medical rescue, medical staff will inevitably come into contact with the patient's blood and body fluid, which may carry various pathogens such as HBV (hepatitis B virus), HCV (hepatitis C virus) and HIV (AIDS virus).
As a medical shielding fabric, surgical gowns mainly focus on barrier properties. Barrier properties include the ability to prevent penetration of liquids and microorganisms.

1. Put both hands into armholes. Hold the gown away from the body, and allow it to unfold completely;
2. Slip both hands and forearms into armholes and sleeves, keep hands at shoulder level and away from the body;
3. The circulating nurse should pull the gown over shoulders, touching only the inside of the gown;
4. When open glove donning, pull cuff to thumb level; When closed, push the hands to the edge of the cuff;
5. Arrange hook and loop fixation;
6. Tie the inner belt of the gown;

8. Hand the belt card to the circulating nurse, then make a three fourth turn to the left while the circulating nurse extends the outer belt to its full length;
