Kimberly-Clark Health Care has introduced the AERO BLUE* Performance Surgical Gown, a soft, lightweight gown that according to the company is four times more protective than other comparable surgical gowns. Using a proprietary fabric with innovative Core technology, it delivers the highest fluid protection available in a Level 3 surgical gown as defined by the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). The AAMI standards aid in the selection of appropriate protective apparel to keep healthcare workers and their patients safe from fluid exposure.
AERO BLUE’s fabric has a protective inner core that prevents fluid penetration—even under extreme high-pressure testing—while allowing moisture vapor to pass through the gown. Additionally, a breathable back panel maximizes air flow for comfort. The fabric’s copolymer technology provides softness and a flexible fit for full range of motion.
Later this year, Kimberly-Clark Health Care will become Halyard Health, an independent medical technology company focused on preventing infection, eliminating pain and speeding recovery.
