What sizes do bouffant caps for the medical fields come in and why?

Friday, August 15, 2008

Most reputable and well stocked medical supply companies are going to be able to offer medical use bouffant caps in 19, 21, and 24 inch sizes. These caps are also available in 28 inch sizes.
The reason for the massive difference in variety of sizes in bouffant caps is to ensure that no matter how large or small a doctor or nurse is he or she is still going to be able to use a properly fitting cap. The puffy appearance of the bouffant cap is perfect for providing enough space for not only the head, but also the hair of the medical professional. The patient doesn’t need to be concerned with contamination from hair and the medical professional needs to know that their hair is out of the way and safe from possible biohazards.
Tell me something about the material used to make disposable bouffant caps for doctors and nurses?
Most bouffant caps you are going to find in the medical office or surgical room are made from polypropylene. This material is perfect for use in the operating room because is produces very little lint and is incredibly light weight, adding to the comfort of the doctor and nurses. The bouffant caps can be found in both white and blue color varieties as well as the different sizes. For the medical professionals who are allergic to latex, it is also possible to order these caps latex free.
