The Surgical Gown is a personal protective garment intended to be worn by health care personnel during surgical procedures to protect both the patient and health care personnel from the transfer of various germs and viruses. These gowns are worn as a barrier to fluid and microbial transmission during surgery. They have long sleeves with elastic cuffs and they maintain the sterile barrier between the surgical field and the surgeon's clothes or exposed arms. The Surgical Gown is a long loose piece of clothing worn in a hospital by doctors doing or having an operation. They are very effective.
