PEI launch Ansell's innovative Gammex PI Glove in Glove at INMO 2018

PEI was delighted to once again support the INMO (Operating Department Nurses Section) at its Annual Conference which it took place llast weekend. This years conference ran over two days - on Friday, 20th and Saturday, 21st April, at the Tullamore Court Hotel, Tullamore, Co. Offaly. The theme of this years conference was "Leadership and Accountability in Perioperative Practice".

PEI took the opportunity to launch Ansell's innovative Gammex PI Glove in Glove system - the world's first pre-donned double gloving system for snthetic surgical gloves.

The reaction to the gloves was extremel positive. Among the benefits experienced by attendees:

  • Faster donning time – 75% of evaluators said the system is faster than their current two-step process
  • Lower environmental impact – two pre-donned gloves means 50% less inner wrap packaging waste
  • Improved fit – pre-aligned outer and inner gloves minimise need for adjustment, and the inner glove is ½ size bigger than the outer glove for optimal user comfort
  • Easier breach detection – semi-transparent natural-colored outer glove with a green inner glove
  • Easy removal of top glove - the outer glove comes off easily and the smooth upper surface of the inner glove makes it easy to accommodate any intraoperative changes
  • Advanced Allergy Protection - non-latex, diphenylguanidine-free (DPG-Free) and cetylpyridinium chloride-free (CPC-Free) to eliminate the risk of Type I latex allergy and minimise chemical Type IV allergies and skin sensitivities
  • SMART Pack Packaging – packaging components fit better on O.R. shelves, resulting in more efficient dispensing. Product identification, stacking, and storage are easier than ever
