Drapes and Kits for Gynaecology

Gynaecology is the branch of medicine dealing with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus, and ovaries) and the breasts. Some obstetric procedures like the cesarean section are quite challenging to a draping system.

The transmission of bacteria usually occurs when the surgical drape is not impervious. As impervious drapes are impenetrable to liquid strikethrough the possibility of bacteria transfer and contamination is reduced.

Draping products must offer effective fluid management for obstetric, gynaecological and C-section procedures. They need to provide efficient fluid collection, with easy clean-up and disposal, while reducing the risk of contact for staff and patients with blood and body fluids.

Drapes should keep the patient dry throughout the procedure and reduce the likelihood of fluid spillage that could pose a health and safety hazard to healthcare workers.

As gynaecological procedures are often emergencies its imperative that the drapes should be easy to use. Disposable products come in a ready to use package and are also easily disposable after use.

Reliable disposable surgical drapes are spot-on in effectiveness when it comes to being impervious to strikethrough. They are strong, have steadfast adhesion, fluid control feature and are comfortable for the patient.

Drapes should be made with high-quality material and have skin-friendly adhesive tapes that can securely hold them in place.

Disposable gynaecological drapes include drapes with fluid collection pouches with suction fluid drainage ports, fenestration is completely covered with incise areas, and a choice of under buttocks drapes. Line holders and Velcro-style tubes keep the drape clear from the fenestration.

They include full gynaecology drape, maternity drape sheet, neonatal sheets, caesarian drape, cystoscopy drape, laparoscopy drape, plain sheet, trolley cover, plain sheet and trolley cover.

The gynaecological pack usually contains all the items required for completely draping the patient along with integrated leggings, as well as Drapes for placing underneath the buttocks and for covering Anal Region.

To ensure the high quality of draping the gynaecological team must choose the drapes and packs very carefully for each speciality.

Gynaecology drapes and kits come designed, folded and packed with clear labels and instructions. Drapes should ideally follow the regulation provided by a recognized industry standard such as the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN).
