The usage of single or double gloving in surgery (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I litteraturen finns evidens att använda dubbla lager av operationshandskar vid all kirurgi för att förebygga smittspridning mellan patient och personal samt för att förebygga vårdrelaterade infektioner. Operationshandskar kan ha olika tjocklek och taktil känsla beroende på latex eller latexfritt material. Trots att evidens finns att använda dubbla lager operationshandskar förekommer variation i användandet.

Syfte: Syftet med studien var att undersöka om operationssjuksköterskor och kirurger väljer enkla eller dubbla handskar vid operationer, samt hur de motiverar sitt val.

Metod: Operationssjuksköterskor och kirurger från två operationsavdelningar i Mellansverige undersöktes i en tvärsnittsdesign med intervjustödda enkäter. Flera deltagare intervjuades flera gånger.

Resultat: Totalt inkluderades 66 deltagare i studien och 137 intervjuer genomfördes. Nästan hälften av deltagarna motiverade sitt val av handskar med rutin eller vana. Vid samtliga ortopediska operationer användes dubbla handskar. Enkelt lager av handskar användes i högre grad då endast latexfria handskar fanns att tillgå, och den dominerande motiveringen var då att det var mer svårarbetat med dubbla handskar.

Slutsats och klinisk betydelse: Användandet av enkla respektive dubbla handskar skiljer sig mellan verksamheterna och mellan yrkeskategorierna. Dubbla handskar användes av samtliga deltagare på den avdelning där skriftliga riktlinjer angående dubbla handskar fanns formulerade. Enkla handskar användes i högre grad då endast latexfria handskar fanns att tillgå.

Resultatet i föreliggande studie indikerar att riktlinjer angående dubbla handskar, samt latexfria handskars sämre taktila förmåga kan ha betydelse för hur operationspersonal väljer operationshandskar.

Abstract [en]

Background: In the literature, there is evidence of the usage of double layered surgical gloves during all surgical procedures in order to prevent the spread of infection between the patient and medical personnel, as well as, to prevent clinical infections. Double layered surgical gloves can have different thickness and tactile feeling depending on latex or latex-free material.

Aim: To investigate if operating room nurses and surgeons choose single or double gloving for operations, as well as, how they motivate their choices.

Method: Operating room nurses and surgeons from two different operation departments in the middle of Sweden were examined in a cross-sectional design with interview-supported questionnaires. Some participants were interviewed several times.

Results: In total, 66 participants were included in the study and 137 interviews were conducted. Almost half of the participants motivated their choice of gloves routinely or habitually. In all orthopedic operations, double gloves were used.

Conclusion and clinical implications: The usage of single as opposed to double-gloving differs between departments and between different categories of profession. The majority of participants chose to use double gloves. Double gloves were more frequently used on the ward where written guidelines regarding double gloves were formulated. Single gloves were more commonly used in the pediatric surgery department, where only latex-free gloves were available for use.

The result in the present study indicates that guidelines regarding double gloves can be significant for how operation personnel choose surgical gloves.
