• Single test of water impacting the surface of the gown material is conducted to assess barrier protection performance.
|LEVEL 2||Used in LOW risk situations

KoolGown’s and AAMI – Level 2 Description and Applicability
These KoolGown’s will be for individuals who service Group Homes, Assisted Living Homes and centres and other applications BUT not designed for Hospital or Medical environments.
Note: Our KoolGown’s are made for multi washings and usage and NOT a one-time use and then disposal.
ANSI/AAMI PB70:2012 provides standards for liquid barrier performance, with ratings for different levels of gown protection 2
AAMI addresses fluid protection in the critical zone, the gown area where an OR staff member is most likely to come in direct contact with potentially infectious material.
WHAT IS THE CRITICAL ZONE? In gowns, it includes much of the sleeves and front. Both fabric and construction (sleeve seams and front tie attachment) are tested.
