What Are Surgical Gloves?
Surgical gloves are medical devices.
In terms of category, they are the highest grade of medical gloves and a crucial part of the surgical supply cabinet for any surgical team.
Disposable Surgical Gloves
The use of surgical gloves becomes necessary when there is a need to conduct surgical operations or have contact (touching with hands) with body fluids.
Since the risk of contact with blood-borne pathogens or any other microbes transferable through body fluids is so high with such procedures and activities, medical gloves with an acceptable quality level for pinholes must be used.
Surgical gloves are sterile and have the most stringent quality level for pinholes (lowest pinhole) than other categories of medical gloves.
Generally, surgical gloves are specially designed with higher quality than examination gloves or other medical gloves.
They are designed to offer the highest level of protection, sensitivity, tactile feel, high tensile strength, and accuracy required by any surgical team.
What Is The Use Of Surgical Gloves?
The main use of surgical gloves is to act as a protective shield or barrier to prevent the likely transmission of biofluid-borne pathogens and microbes between patients and surgeons or medical workers during surgical procedures.
What Are The Best Type Of Surgical Gloves?
There are basically three types of surgical gloves based on the material they are made of which are latex, vinyl, and nitrile.
Each has its pros and cons and the best of the three gloves is determined by the preference of the user and the intended use of the gloves.
· Latex Gloves
These are the most common type of disposable surgical gloves and also the most widely used.
They are made of natural rubber latex and offer great flexibility, durability, comfort, and performance.
Latex Surgical Gloves
Latex gloves are easy to wear, offer the best fit, and have the highest level of tactile sensitivity.
You will find that they also act as an effective mid-range barrier against microbes, contaminants, and pathogens.
More so, this type of gloves can endure complicated and long surgical procedures and are biodegradable.
Nevertheless, if you are allergic to latex, latex gloves are not recommended for you.
· Nitrile Gloves
These are latex-free and protein-free gloves.
You will find that they are stronger than vinyl or latex gloves and act as the highest barrier against pathogens and microbes.
They’re also very resistant to puncture, needle sticks, chemicals, and abrasions.
Nitrile Surgical Gloves
They can mold easily to your hand for a comfortable fit.
However, nitrile surgical gloves will dissolve if they come in contact with acetone.
Also, they are available in powder-free versions.
· Vinyl Gloves
These are PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) gloves which can offer high protection value at a low cost.
They are soft, latex-free, inexpensive, and comfortable to wear.
Vinyl gloves also offer an effective standard barrier against microbes and pathogens.
However, they’re less durable, less elastic, and less tactile.
Hence, they cannot be used for work that requires more mobility and durability from your gloves.
Vinyl Surgical Gloves
More so, vinyl gloves offer the lowest levels of puncture resistance and chemical resistance.
This is why you will find that most times, vinyl gloves are relegated to examination gloves only.
What Type Of Surgical Gloves Do Hospitals Use?
The most commonly used types of surgical gloves in hospitals are the latex and nitrile gloves.
They are more effective when handling high-risk situations involving body fluids or patients with infectious illnesses.
While nitrile gloves are higher quality surgical gloves, latex gloves are designed for more sensitivity and accuracy required during surgical operations.
As stated above, latex gloves are widely used by surgeons and doctors in the hospital.
While nitrile gloves are gradually becoming popular for hospitals and emergency personnel, they are still in use by non-medical personnel like veterinarians, factory workers, housekeepers, security guards, and police officers.
What Is The Difference Between Surgical And Examination Gloves?
Surgical gloves have better precision, better sensitivity, and more precise sizing than examination gloves.
They are also made to a higher standard and have higher barrier protection levels than examination gloves.
Nitrile Examination Glove
More so, while surgical gloves are usually sterile, examination gloves can either be sterile or non-sterile.
Latex Examination Glove
Just as its name depicts, examination gloves are meant for just medical examination and do not offer adequate protection against the risk of contracting biofluid-borne infections.
Vinyl Examination Glove
Can You Use Expired Surgical Gloves?
It’s not recommended for you to use expired surgical gloves.
Although expired surgical gloves may still offer some barrier protection, they may not offer adequate barrier protection but predispose you to infections during use.
Hence, you should always inspect all surgical gloves before use to see if they are beyond their expiration date.
You should also check out for tears, visible holes, discolorations, etc.
If you notice any of the concerns above, don’t hesitate to discard the expired surgical glove.
Expired Surgical Glove
In cases where the surgical gloves are expired but have no visible concern, it’s recommended that you use such expired gloves as examination gloves or where high-level protection is not needed.
Do Surgical Gloves Cause Allergies?
Yes, depending on the users, surgical gloves may cause allergies.
For instance, latex gloves cause allergies if you are allergic to latex.
Latex allergies are systemic and may trigger anaphylactic shock, which makes them the most serious glove allergies.
Some vinyl gloves use activation agents that may lead to skin allergies.
Nitrile gloves often use thiazoles or carbamates, which can also lead to skin allergy.
Why Do Doctors Wear Blue Surgical Gloves?
The color of the surgical glove worn by the doctor or surgeon has no significant effect on the effectiveness of the glove, except if the glove is discolored.
Doctor Wearing Blue Surgical Gloves
Most times, the color of the surgical glove helps medical personnel to differentiate between latex (pale yellow) and non-latex gloves, and nitrile gloves used in medical facilities usually have a shade of blue.
However, surgical glove of various colors – pink, purple, gray – are now produced.
Different Colors of Surgical Gloves

You can simply wash your gloves with soap and water or with alcohol, which is more effective.

What Are The Ideal Surgical Gloves For Hospital Use?
Surgical gloves for hospital use should be disposable medical gloves made of vinyl, latex, or nitrile materials.
Any surgical glove used in the hospital should be coated for extra protection, textured, sterile, and free of powder as powder can impedes the healing of wounds.
For the utmost level of protection against pathogens and microbes during surgical procedures, nitrile surgical gloves tend to be the most favored type of glove.

A powdered surgical glove requires powder as a lubricant.
The powder lubricates the glove and makes it easy to be worn.
Figure 12 – ng (regular corn starch), it can be harmful and hurt when it comes in contact with open wounds.
It may also impede the healing process.
A non-powdered glove doesn’t require lubrication and is the most used type of surgical glove for surgical operations.

Here are the factors that determine the level of barrier protection of surgical gloves:
- The chemicals the glove comes in.
- The fit of the glove. Gloves that fit poorly will offer less protection.
- The length of time the glove is worn by the user.
- The material the glove is made of.
- Whether or not the user handled equipment that may stress or damage the glove.
Do Vinyl Surgical Gloves Cause Cancer?
Most vinyl gloves contain diisononyl phthalate (DINP), which is a plasticizer that makes them pliable.
However, DINP has been declared hazardous recently and has been included in the Proposition 65 list of chemicals “known to the State of California to cause cancer.” Hence vinyl gloves containing DINP can cause cancer.
Producers of DINP-containing vinyl gloves are, therefore, required to attach a caveat on the pack of the vinyl gloves.
Luckily, not all vinyl surgical gloves contain DINP. So, if you need to use a vinyl glove, look out for those that are void of DINP.
Are Latex Gloves Biodegradable?
Yes, latex gloves are biodegradable.
While other disposable surgical gloves are not biodegradable, latex gloves are recyclable and will eventually break down.
However, biodegradation is not instant.
Although latex is natural rubber, latex gloves can take several years to finally break down because other chemicals have been added to the glove material.
