Protexis™ Surgical Gloves and double-gloving systems

Cardinal Health offers “blue” double-gloving systems in support of sharps safety initiatives. The system includes a “blue” foundation with a light-colored overglove. Our undergloves - Protexis™ PI Blue with Neu-Thera® and Protexis™ Latex Blue with Neu-Thera® surgical gloves - are powder-free, available in synthetic polyisoprene (PI) and natural rubber latex (latex), and are blue in color. In addition, these undergloves are coated with Neu-Thera® emollient coating for donnability as well as protecting, restoring, moisturizing and soothing hands during glove wear. Both can be easily paired with any light-colored offering in the Cardinal Health surgical glove portfolio, for instance Protexis™ PI Micro or Protexis™ Latex Hydrogel surgical gloves. When worn together, the system helps make breaches visible and alerts wearers to dangerous perforations.

The latest addition to our facial protection portfolio, the Smart-Seal™ Surgical Mask features a patent-pending fog-reduction system that includes closed-cell foam and a vapor barrier. The mask leverages the key design features of the Secure-Gard® Surgical and Procedural Mask while adding enhanced features of fit and fog protection. In addition to providing the highest level of protection against fluids, fog and surgical smoke, the Smart-Seal™ Surgical Mask features a patent-pending “cinch and hug” single-tie design that reduces gaps along the face to deliver complete protection for wearers.
