Reviewed by: OSCMS Medical Review Team
Notes: This design produces a working isolation suit if seams are sealed. The recommended material is Tyvek 1433R. Sewing seams make the garment more permeable because of needle holes. Please read through the techpack for full construction details based on what kind of machine you have accessible.

The Problem:

Healthcare workers are exposed to infectious body fluids when working in close proximity to patients. Coughing, sneezing, and retching can expel droplets, which can transmit disease if the healthcare worker’s clothing comes into contact with these fluids. A protective gown covers the healthcare worker’s clothing so as to reduce the risk of direct contact with contaminated fluids.

Current US Resources:

Worst Case Expectation:Why We’ll Need It: 

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes that the need for personal protective equipment (PPE), such as surgical masks, surgical and isolation gowns, and surgical suits, may outpace the supply available to healthcare organization during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak.

Why We Won’t Need It:

Engineering Requirements:


Gowns for patients:

Gown fabric needs to be the right mix of cotton/synthetic so it launders well but doesn’t make tons of static. Static sparks are an issue for hospitals due to fire hazard and high O2 concentration.

  • Nonsterile, disposable patient isolation gowns, which are used for routine patient care in healthcare settings, are appropriate for use by patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19.


Gowns for Healthcare Personnel: Class 2 Gowns 


The choice of gown should be made based on the level of risk of contamination. 

  • Certain areas of surgical and isolation gowns are defined as “critical zones” where direct contact with blood, body fluids, and/or other potentially infectious materials is most likely to occur. (ANSI/AAMI PB70)
  • Medium to high risk of contamination and need for a large critical zone, isolation gowns that claim moderate to high barrier protection (ANSI/AAMI PB70 Level 3 or 4
  • For healthcare activities with low, medium, or high risk of contamination, surgical gowns (ANSI/AAMI PB70 Levels 1-4)These gowns are intended to be worn by healthcare personnel during surgical procedures.
  • If the risk of bodily fluid exposure is low or minimal, gowns that claim minimal or low levels of barrier protection (ANSI/AAMI PB70 Level 1 or 2 can be used. These gowns should not be worn during surgical or invasive procedures, or for medium to high risk contamination patient care activities.

Assembly/Fabrication Requirements:

  • Single use, disposable
  • Calf length

Mask Reuse

Recommended Guidance for Extended Use and Limited Reuse of N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirators in Healthcare Settings


Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation of influenza-contaminated N95 filtering facepiece respirators. (2018)

“CONCLUSIONS:  These data suggest that FFR decontamination and reuse using UVGI can be effective. Implementation of a UVGI method will require careful consideration of FFR model, material type, and design.”


Effects of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) on N95 Respirator Filtration Performance and Structural Integrity (2015)

“We found that UVGI exposure led to a small increase in particle penetration (up to 1.25%) and had little effect on the flow resistance. UVGI exposure had a more pronounced effect on the strengths of the respirator materials”


Effectiveness of three decontamination treatments against influenza virus applied to filtering facepiece respirators. (2012)

“These findings indicate that, when properly implemented, these methods effectively decontaminate H5N1 on the two FFR models tested and do not drastically affect their filtering function; however, other considerations may influence decisions to reuse FFRs.”


Evaluation of Five Decontamination Methods for Filtering Facepiece Respirators (2009)

“This study evaluated five decontamination methods [ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), ethylene oxide, vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP), microwave oven irradiation, and bleach] “

“Further research is needed before any specific decontamination methods can be recommended.”
