Medical Gloves

Surgical gloves find their place basically in surgical procedures. The classification of these gloves is based on material used i.e. nitrile, latex and vinyl. Furthermore they are available in sterile/non-sterile, textured, coated, powdered or non-powdered types. Powdered gloves use powder as a lubricant which makes them easy to put on. This powder is the regular corn starch and is non-irritating. However powder can be harmful if comes in contact with open wounds as it can impede healing. Non-powdered gloves are popularly used in healthcare facilities. Some gloves also come with special inner coating which helps in putting them on with ease.
