ASTM F2407-06(2013)e1

Standard Specification for Surgical Gowns Intended for Use in Healthcare Facilities

1.1 This specification establishes requirements for the performance, documentation, and labeling of surgical gowns used in the healthcare facilities. Four levels of barrier properties for surgical gowns are specified in AAMI PB70 and are included in this specification for reference purposes.

Note 1Some properties require minimum performance and others are for documentation only.
Note 2AAMI PB70 evaluates the barrier properties of surgical gown fabrics using water only in Levels 1, 2, and 3. Since surgical gowns are exposed to blood and other fluids with different surface tensions, the performance of additional testing to identify the barrier levels to simulated biological fluids is required for a Level 4 gown.
