        Product Information

        AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer and global supplier of examination gloves. The StaySafe™ brand of examination gloves is internationally distributed and recognized for reliable quality and exceptional value. With distribution across developed and developing markets alike, our products are uniquely positioned as the brand of choice for medical professionals.

        The primary function of examination gloves is to protect the user from cross-contamination when handling a patient or potentially infectious or contaminated material.

        Examination gloves are differentiated from regular gloves in that they are relatively thin, can conform to the skin and are generally more suitable for a clinical/medical environment. However, they are not surgical gloves, and should never be used when performing surgery (surgical gloves used).

        AdvaCare offers 4 series of examination gloves, each composed of a unique material each with different properties and applications.

        The latex gloves range is high in elasticity providing prime conforming ability and comfort, and is also durable and lasts for extended periods of time. Because latex has natural properties, it is more environmentally friendly than other materials. They are also resistant to punctures.

        The nitrile range is manufactured from synthetic polymers of high quality. This material is less prone to causing allergic reactions (unlike latex, which people can be allergic to) and skin irritation. They are extremely resistant to punctures and highly touch sensitive.

        The vinyl range offered is the least expensive, and is an alternative to latex gloves for those allergic to latex. They are ideal for short term use with low chances of risk. Whilst not as elastic as the other materials, vinyl gloves are anti-static.

        The stretch vinyl range is composed of vinyl, like the vinyl range; however, it has a better conforming ability for a more comfortable experience when using them. It is still a relatively economical option.

        Gloves are available in sterile and non-sterile: sterile gloves recommended for invasive examinations and non-sterile gloves suitable for non-invasive i.e. patient transportation.

        All variants of examination gloves are available in powdered or non-powdered surfaces. Powdered gloves prevent them from sticking together and thus easier to use, however, the non-powdered versions are more beneficial for the wearers’ skin. Selection should be made based on the requirements of the task and personal preference.

        Product Series:

        EXAMINATION LATEX GLOVES

        Composed of latex, most commonly used gloves.

        • Provides high comfort;
        • Should be used in low-medium risk procedures, not to be used in invasive examinations;
        • High elasticity.
        staysafe-nitrile-gloves

        EXAMINATION NITRILE GLOVES

        This variant is composed of high quality nitrile compounds.

        • Suitable for people with latex allergies;
        • High resistance to puncturing and corrosive/irritable chemicals.
        staysafe-vinyl-gloves

        EXAMINATION VINYL GLOVES (STANDARD AND STRETCH)

        These gloves are manufactured from vinyl.

        • Vinyl gloves are the most economical option out of all the materials;
        • Have a relatively low resistance to puncture, and therefore should only be used in low risk procedures for example patient transportation;
        • Good alternative to latex gloves for people with latex allergies;
        • Stretch vinyl gloves offer more elasticity than the standard variant.

        Benefits of Examination Gloves

        • Wide variety of materials, each one catering to the different needs of the procedure, the patient, and the glove wearer;
        • Relatively inexpensive, safe to use (if one is allergic to latex, there are other materials available);
        • Protects the wearer from contracting infections due to cross contamination;
        • Easily disposed, low risk of transferring contaminants since they are single use;
        • Examination gloves are available in multiple sizes. There is a size for everybody;
        • Gloves conform to size and shape of hand, translating to a comfortable fit for the wearer;
        • Relatively inexpensive;
        • Gloves are ambidextrous, enabling use on both hands;
        • Come in sterile and non-sterile variants. Non-sterile gloves can be sterilized through use of sterilization solutions.

        Usage

        The correct size of gloves must be worn by the user, as gloves that are too big may slip off mid-examination or if they’re too tight, they may break. In either case, safety for the wearer and the patient is comprised.

        Care must be taken to select the right type of glove for the procedure – invasive procedures require sterile gloves, whereas non-sterile gloves should only be worn for non-invasive procedures.

        If the individual is allergic to latex, alternative material must be used. If unsure, an alternative material should be used in case the individual is allergic. Testing for a reaction to determine if allergic or not should be undertaken.

        Examination gloves are slipped over the hands, ensuring correct fit and comfort is attained. Slight adjustments may be necessary in order to achieve this. The wearer is ready for examination.

        It is imperative that the gloves (especially sterile gloves) are not used if the packaging or seal is compromised. Evidence of this may suggest tampering or loss of sterility. If one should come across gloves inside comprised packaging, the correct course of action is to dispose of it quickly and safely.

        Precautions

        • It is of utmost importance that gloves are not reused. Once used, the device is not fit to be salvaged for further use, as sterilization cannot be retained. Re-using gloves can result in infections being transmitted between health practitioner and patient;
        • Must prepare the gloves for use in a clean, sterile environment, absent of bodily fluids or other sources of contamination;
        • Sterile gloves must be worn for invasive procedures;
        • Promptly and safely dispose of any gloves that have touched a potentially contaminated surface;
        • Correct material must be selected according to procedure – medium risk procedures require a glove material that is puncture resistant i.e. nitrile gloves. Vinyl gloves should be avoided in these types of procedures;
        • Care must be taken when selecting the correct glove size – a comfortable, correct fit is imperative for the wearer to perform a procedure to a high standard and to maintain safety;
        • If the individual is allergic to latex, gloves made from an alternative material must be used. If unsure, an alternative material should be used in case the individual is allergic. Testing for a reaction to determine if allergic or not should be undertaken before latex gloves can be safely worn.
