During a recent webinar, experts in personal protective equipment (PPE) and infection prevention and control presented updates to liquid barrier protection standards for PPE to help health care personnel make informed decisions about the PPE in their facilities.
The webinar follows a revision to the ANSI / AAMI PB70 (PB70) standards document that was released in early 2023. PB70 standards cover barrier performance and classification of gowns, protective apparel, and drapes intended for use in health care facilities.
