The Use of Latex Gloves

Latex gloves are the most basic and important tool that helpers should have. Good use ensures the prevention of spread of disease among people.

E l use of latex gloves to aid an injured is increasingly common because people are becoming more aware Rescuers against the spread of disease. In the past, people helped themselves unprotected and can spread a disease of the victim.

In most courses in first aid and first aid, techniques and how to take the gloves are taught, speaking of one disease can be spread by contact with blood or any liquid other people. Gloving, it is very easy since they are clean and easily slide. Upon removing gloves, always it taught that it is very important that the blood or liquid on the glove and not in contact with the skin or clothing helper.
The problem is that in many courses not taught what happens in the middle of that period, that is after gloving up before removing. There is a lack of knowledge about how to handle hygienically while you have gloves on.

Not only are basic rules to follow in the case of put on or take gloves but there are also a number of basic rules for when we already have rules gloves.
Some of the basic rules that are taught are: gloves check to be sure they are not broken, do not let anyone come in contact with contaminated material, throw the gloves in a bag marked not confuse it with regular trash; wash hands after removing gloves ; etc.

These are very important rules that must be known, but they are not the only ones. There is another set of rules that are equally important and can make the difference between a good helper or negligent.

Over the years we have seen a lot of errors, repeated again and again, that can be easily avoided. Many of these mistakes have noticed in Helpers or health professionals involved in real accidents.
Once the gloves contaminated with blood or fluid from the victim have seen people settle lenses, wipe the sweat or touching your face. Unfortunately not notice this until it’s too late. Once the gloves, provided such errors occur and can cause the disease helper of the victim is infected.

Another thing we have seen very often is that people serve a victim and then go to the medicine cabinet to remove gauze or bandages bloodstained gloves or infected. Touching the cabinet with contaminated gloves have been contaminated, perhaps completely, the kit work. This may cause it to be pulling much of the contaminated equipment or in the worst case to continue working with an infected without even knowing kit.
In case there are two or more victims, when a rescuer stops serving one of these, may be that will help another helper in the care of another victim. In this case, the first rescuer continues to work with gloves was attending the first victim and thus serves the second. What happens is that the first victim diseases can be infected to the second victim. This error is also very common and in this case the rescuer will be charged with negligent (see sportingology).

Once the gloves come in contact with blood or any liquid of a victim must prevent these come into contact with our skin, clothing or inside the medicine cabinet. In this way we can avoid getting infected or infecting others.

In the case of contamination of the kit so you can do to avoid it is to ask someone else to be responsible for handling it. Thus this person, also with latex gloves for safety equipment can provide them the helpers without letting it become contaminated, unnecessarily. It is very important that the team passing from hand to hand, with helpers avoid touching contaminated hands gloves kit manager. In the unlikely event that the helper is found only, you can avoid putting your hands inside the kit with contaminated gloves before changing her look for something inside. For this, the rescuer can put more than one pair of latex gloves while and try to get the necessary equipment at once.

In our courses always we take a lot of boxes of latex gloves to use our students and teach them to always be more than one pair at a time; This way they can avoid many of the problems that we discussed earlier. It is much easier to put on a pair of latex gloves over another latex removed and put one hand on sweaty. As generally is an emergency and because latex gloves are not breathable, sweating in the hands is very common and can complicate things when wanting to change gloves.
By having more than one pair of gloves, but should remove the top layer, leaving the layer below, and put another on top. This way you can remove the contaminated gloves and so look for something in the medicine cabinet or go help another victim with the tranquility of not being infecting anything from one victim to another.

On the other hand, is very common latex gloves break, thus using more than one pair of gloves the risk that remains our bare skin is reduced.
Many people complain that sensitivity is lost with the use two pairs of gloves or more, but the reality is that with a little practice you can take the pulse of more than one pair of gloves.

The use of gloves is one of the most important issues helpers must know and apply. Gloves are the most basic and important tool that helpers should have.

Do not forget you. have a life ahead that could change forever in the case of getting something if you do not follow these safety steps and prevention.
