Original Title: Analysis Report on the Development of medical protective suit Industry I. Overview of medical protective suit Industry Medical protective suit generally refers to the protective clothing used by medical staff (doctors, nurses, public health personnel, cleaning personnel, etc.) And people entering specific medical and health areas (such as patients, hospital visitors, people entering infected areas, etc.). In a broad sense, medical protective suit includes all kinds of clothing worn by medical staff in the medical environment, such as daily work clothes, surgical gowns, isolation clothes and protective suit. According to different application environments and functions, medical protective suit have different standard levels for liquid and bacteria infiltration, and the materials used are also different. According to the basic functions,KN95 Face Mask, they can be roughly divided into two types: reusable type and disposable type (disposable). According to the catalogue of national industrial structure adjustment, protective suit belongs to the industry of public safety and emergency supplies, which protects human beings from all kinds of injuries. According to the new edition of the classification catalogue of medical devices, “protective articles for medical personnel” are included in the category of protective functional devices, corresponding to the general medical articles in the sub-catalogue of 6866 Medical Polymer Materials and Products in the 2002 edition of the classification catalogue. Medical polymer materials and products belong to low-value medical consumables. II. Medical protective suit Industry Chain The medical protective suit industry chain is divided into three links. The upstream of the industrial chain mainly includes polypropylene (PP), polyester and other raw materials; the midstream and upstream industries include PP non-woven fabrics,CE Certificate KN95 Mask, melt-blown fabrics, lockstitch sewing machines, overlock sewing machines and other production equipment; the midstream is medical protective suit manufacturers; the downstream involves various distribution channels of medical protective suit, including wholesalers and retailers, hospitals and pharmacies, e-commerce platforms, etc. Expand the full text III. Policy Environment of medical protective suit Industry In the management of medical devices, based on risk, our country usually divides medical devices into three categories. Medical devices with low risk or basically no risk belong to the first category, which shall be registered by the municipal drug regulatory agencies; medical devices with medium risk shall be registered and approved by the provincial drug regulatory agencies; medical devices with high risk belong to the third category, Medical Disposable Coverall ,3 Ply Disposable Protective Face Mask, which shall be directly approved by the National Medical Products Administration. Medical protective suit belong to Class II medical devices, which are registered and managed by provincial drug regulatory authorities. At present, there are 17 standards related to medical protective suit in China, and the corresponding standard of medical protective suit is GB 19082-2009 “Technical Requirements for Medical Disposable protective suit”, all enterprises producing medical protective suit must be manufactured in accordance with this standard. This standard not only stipulates the appearance of protective suit, but also strictly stipulates the liquid barrier function, filtering performance, microbial index, ethylene oxide residue, wearing performance and comfort performance of protective suit. IV. Social Environment of medical protective suit Industry Medical protective suit belong to medical consumables, which are used in the treatment of patients. Therefore, the development environment of the industry is closely related to downstream applications. The aging of the population, the number of hospital visits and inpatients will bring potential changes in demand for the development of the industry. In addition, the degree of investment in medical and health expenses will also bring positive or negative effects on the development of the industry. V. Technical Environment of medical protective suit Industry Medical protective suit manufacturing technology involves upstream raw material technology, midstream processing technology and disinfection and sterilization technology before putting into downstream application. The production medical protective suit mainly comprises the following steps of: cutting, sewing, tightening, bonding and pressing an adhesive tape and the like on the non-woven fabric which meets the protection requirements by using machines such as a lockstitch sewing machine, an overlock sewing machine, an adhesive pressing machine and the like, and finishing the non-woven fabric by functions of water repellency, blood repellency, alcohol repellency and static electricity repellency to manufacture the medical protective suit containing hooded jackets and trousers. VI. Development Trend of medical protective suit Industry Compared with foreign protective suit testing standards, China’s one-time protective suit testing standards are relatively backward, resulting in the production of high-end protective suit in China can only be tested by foreign authorities and then sold back to China, the cost will also rise. Therefore, China presents a situation that the export capacity of protective suit is higher than the domestic capacity. In the future, China’s medical protective suit industry should further improve industry standards to ensure domestic supply.
At present, ethylene oxide is mostly used for sterilization in the production of national standard medical protective suit, but the biggest disadvantage is that it takes a long time to ventilate to remove residues, and the whole sterilization time is long, usually 7-14 days, while cobalt-60 or electronic accelerator radiation sterilization has no pollution, no residues,Antivirus Disposable Mask with CE Certificate, no radioactive sources, and the sterilization time can be shortened to less than 1 day. And that sterilization effect is equivalent to that of the traditional ethylene oxide. It is reported that 40-50% of disposable medical supplies produced in developed countries are sterilized by irradiation. With the support of new technologies and policies for rapid sterilization, irradiation sterilization of disposable medical protective suit may become normal in the future from “emergency substitution” to promote the high-quality development of the medical protective suit industry.
