Surgical Drapes, Patient, Disposable

Definition : Disposable patient surgical drapes are designed to provide a barrier between the unsterile skin of the patient and the sterile surgical field and are intended to be used once and then discarded. They provide a bacteria-proof barrier between the unsterile surfaces they cover and the sterile surgical field. These patient surgical drapes are made of nonwoven materials (e.g., tissue, cellulose/polyethylene). Disposable patient surgical drapes do not need laundering, inspection, repair, or sterilization because they are supplied new and pre-sterilized and are meant to be disposed of after the surgical procedure. Though they are absorbent, disposable patient surgical drapes are also impermeable and non-linting which minimizes the risk of infection.
