#Covid19 Safety Items
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) are protective gears designed to safeguard the health of workers by minimizing the exposure to a biological agent.
Components of PPE Components of PPE are :
Face shield and Goggles
Contamination of mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and mouth is likely in a scenario of droplets generated by cough, sneeze of an infected person or during aerosol generating procedures carried out in a clinical setting.
Inadvertently touching the eyes/nose/mouth with a contaminated hand is another likely scenario.
Hence protection of the mucous membranes of the eyes/nose/mouth by using face shields/ goggles is an integral part of standard and contact precautions.
The flexible frame of goggles should provide good seal with the skin of the face, covering the eyes and the surrounding areas and even accommodating for prescription glasses.
Respiratory viruses that includes Coronaviruses target mainly the upper and lower respiratory tracts.
Hence protecting the airway from the particulate matter generated by droplets / aerosols prevents human infection.
Contamination of mucous membranes of the mouth and nose by infective droplets or through a contaminated hand also allows the virus to enter the host.
Hence the droplet precautions/airborne precautions using masks are crucial while dealing with a suspect or confirmed case of COVID-19/performing aerosol generating procedures.
When a person touches an object/surface contaminated by COVID-19 infected person, and then touches his own eyes, nose, or mouth, he may get exposed to the virus. Although this is not thought to be a predominant mode of transmission, care should be exercised while handling objects/surface potentially contaminated by suspect/confirmed cases of COVID-19.
Nitrile gloves are preferred over latex gloves because they resist chemicals, including certain disinfectants such as chlorine. There is a high rate of allergies to latex and contact allergic dermatitis among health workers. However, if nitrile gloves are not available, latex gloves can be used. Non- powdered gloves are preferred to powdered gloves.
Coverall/gowns are designed to protect torso of healthcare providers from exposure to virus. Although coveralls typically provide 360-degree protection because they are designed to cover the whole body, including back and lower legs and sometimes head and feet as well, the design of medical/isolation gowns do not provide continuous whole-body protection (e.g., possible openings in the back, coverage to the mid-calf only).
By using appropriate protective clothing, it is possible to create a barrier to eliminate or reduce contact and droplet exposure, both known to transmit COVID-19, thus protecting healthcare workers working in close proximity (within 1 meter) of suspect/confirmed COVID-19 cases or their secretions.
Coveralls and gowns are deemed equally acceptable as there is a lack of comparative evidence to show whether one is more effective than the other in reducing transmission to health workers.
Gowns are considerably easier to put on and for removal.
An apron can also be worn over the gown for the entire time the health worker is in the treatment area.
Coveralls/gowns have stringent standards that extend from preventing exposure to biologically contaminated solid particles to protecting from chemical hazards.
Shoe covers should be made up of impermeable fabric to be used over shoes to facilitate personal protection and decontamination.
Coveralls usually cover the head. Those using gowns, should use a head cover that covers the head and neck while providing clinical care for patients. Hair and hair extensions should fit inside the head cover.
InfraRed Forehead Thermometer
Infrared (IR) thermometers enable you to measure temperature of human body quickly, at a distance, and without touching the object you're measuring.
They are so useful, easy, and even fun to use that they have become as common in kitchens as they have on factory floors.
Infrared thermometers are often used to find overheated equipment and electrical circuits, but they have hundreds of other uses.
Hand sanitizer is a liquid or gel generally used to decrease infectious agents on the hands. They are available as liquids, gels, and foams.
Generally, it is more effective at killing microorganisms than soap and water.
Alcohol-based hand sanitizer works against a wide variety of microorganisms but not spores.
When using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer:
Foot Operated Sanitizer Stand
Disinfectant Sprayer & Material
These Disinfectant Sprayers ( SANITIZER SPRAY MACHINE ) are Technically Designed & Customized specially for effective Preventive of Spread of Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19).
These Sprayers are battery operated and are automatic to use.
You can mix sodium hypochlorite or any other natural chemical and spray at surfaces of your offices, home etc to decontaminate and sanitize your adobe.
These sprayers generates mist and come with 4 types of different nozzles and have durable battery which is easily re-chargeable just like how you charge your mobile.
