[57] ABSTRACT ISCIaims, 3Drau/ing Figures SURGICAL DRAPE DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates generally to surgical drapes and, more particularly, to an improved construcfion for the operative areas of surgical drapes, such as the fenestration area of laparotomy sheets for example.

It is a primary object of the present invention to provide an improved surgical-drape having an operative area which is strong and fluid impervious with an outside surface which is absorbent and which has a high frictional coefficient to provide good non-slip characteristics.

It is another object of the invention to provide an improved surgical drape which has a high abrasion resistance.

It is still another object of the invention toprovide an improved disposable surgical drape of the foregoing type which is stable under the conditions encountered in sterilization treatments, either by steam or by ethylene oxide and the like.

A further object of the invention is toprovide an improved disposable surgical drape of the type described above which prevents the passage of bacteria through the operative area of the drape.

A still further object of the invention is to provide such an improved surgical drape which has all of the aforementioned characteristics and yet can be produced at a cost sufliciently low to permit disposal of the drape after a single use.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which:

FIG. 1 is .a plan view of a laparotomy sheet embodying the invention;

. FIG. 2 is a section taken along line 2-1 in FIG. 1; and

FIG. 3 is a schematic side elevation of a preferred system for producing the material usedin the laparotomy sheet of FIGS. 1 and 2. 7

While the invention is susceptible of various modifications and alternative forms, certain specific embodiments thereof have been shown by way of example in the drawings which will be described in detail herein; It should be understood, however, that it is not intended to limit the invention to the particular forms disclosed, but, on the contrary, the intention is to cover'all modifications, equivalents, and alternatives falling within the spirit and scope of the invention.

A wide variety of surgicai drapes are in common use today as a means of preventing contamination during surgical operations. The trend today is toward the use of disposable drapes, and'there has been a continuing effort to develop improved materials which will provide the desired combination of properties required for surgical drapes, and yet can be produced at a cost which is low-enough to permit disposal of the drapes made therefrom after a single use. For certain types of drapes, such a variety of different properties are required that it has been difficult to develop a material which satisfies all the requirements and which can be produced economically enough to be considered disposable. For example, the material in the fenestration area of a laparotomy sheet, i.e., the area in which the operation is performed, must satisfy the following requirements;

I. The material must be strong and abrasion resistant even when exposed to the liquids and physical contact and manipulation encountered during the operation.

2. The material must be fluid impervious, both to prevent the liquids encountered during operating procedures from striking through the sheet, and to prevent the passage of bacteria through the sheet.

3. The material must have a high frictional coefficient to prevent the dislodgment of surgical instruments, supplies, and the like from the surface of the sheet during the operation.

4. The material must be stable at the conditions encounteredin sterilization treatments either by stream or by ethylene oxide or the like.

. The material must be fluid absorbent to minimize fluid run-off during the operation.

6. The material must have good draping characteristics.

All the above requirements must be satisfied. in'a material which can be produced at a cost low enough to render the material disposable. v

In accordance with the present invention. an improved disposable surgical drape which satisfies all the foregoing criteria comprises the combination ofa fibrous sheet having a primary operative area, a fluid impervious flexible plastic layer laminated to the base sheet in the primary operative area, and a sheet of fluid absorbent flexible plastic foam material on the outer surface of the film. Thus, the illustrative laparotomy sheet shown in FIG. 1 includes a base sheet 10 comprising outer layers of cellulose wadding and inner layers of highly drafted fibers disposed angularly to each other. A spaced-pattem of adhesive is disposed between each fiber layer and its adjacent wadding layer with the fibers in each fiber layer partiallyembedded in andheld byjthe adhesive of its adjacent adhesive layer and partially embedded in and held by the adhesive in the other adhesive layer where it extends between the fibers of its adjacent fiber layer and with a portion of the adhesive in both adhesive layers joined where the adhesive patterns are superimposed. This material is described in more detail in Sokolowski et al. U.S. Pat. No. 3,484,330, and assigned to the assignee of the present invention.

In keeping with the present invention, a sheet of fluid impervious plastic film 11 is laminated to the top surface of the base sheet 10 over the primary operative area of the sheet, which in the exemplary embodiment is the fenestration area of a laparotomy sheet. A laparotomy sheet is an elongated, generally rectangular sheet used to cover all but the operative field of a patient during thoracic or abdominal surgery, and is typically about 6 to 8 feet in lengthand about- 3 to 6 feet in width. The film 11 may be bonded to the fibrous base sheet 10 by any suitable means, such as by means of an adhesive or by extruding the film directly on the base sheet vl0. The film 11 provides a fluid impervious barrier on the top surface of the operative area of the sheet 10, so that any fluids which contact this area cannot strike through the sheet. It also prevents the transfer of bacteria through the sheet to insure sterile conditions in the operative area. The film must be capable of remaining stable under the conditions encountered in the particular treatment to which the laparotomy sheet is subjected to render it sterile, e.g., temperaturesof about 270, F. for steam sterilization, or about 160 F. for sterilization by means of ethylene oxide or the like.

Examples of suitable films are polyethylene e.g., 2-mil antistatic polyethylenefilm manufactured by Clopay Film Corp.; antistatic polypropylene, e.g., Extrel II available from Extrudo Film Corp.; polyethylene methylacrylate co-polymer film manufactured by Edison Plastics Company; and vinyl chloride films. The film should be substantially free of pinholes, and thus must generally be at least 0.15 mil thick, to provide the desired sterility barrier.

To provide a fluid absorbent outer surface on the drape, while at the same time providing a high frictional co-efiicient, a sheet of fluid absorbent flexible plastic foam material 12 is laminated to the outer surface of the fluid impervious film l l. The foam material 12 may be bonded to the film 11 by any suitable means, such as by means of an adhesive, by fusing, or by extruding the film 1 1 directly on the foam material 12.

The absorbency of the absorbent open-cell foam 12 prevents excessive fluid runoff, and yet the absorbed fluids cannot strike through the drape because of the intermediate layer of fluid impervious film 1 1. The relatively high frictional coefficient of the foam material provides a substantially nonslip surface which prevents the accidental dislodgment of surgical instruments and the like. In addition, the foam [2 should have a low glare, which may be achieved by using a colored foam. Examples of suitable foams are 40 mil polyester polyurethane foam, available from Reeves Bros. or Tenneco Chemicals, Inc., having a density of 1.75 lbs./ft. and polyether polyurethane foams. The foam thickness should generally be in the range of from about 25 mils to about mils, and the absorbency of the foam sheet should be at least about permanufactured by Polymer Industries, Inc.;

. foam.

cent and at least about 3 gm. per 4 X 4 inches sample,

' preferablyat least 575 percent and at least 4.5 gm. per 4 X 4 electrical charges on the drape, which can be hazardous with the potentially explosive gases that are often present in the operating room, the foam 12 should also be antistatic. It is not necessary for the intermediate film 11 to be antistatic unless the specific design of the drape is such that the film 11 is exposedin a'ceitain area, e.g., around the operative opening in the fenestration area of a laparotomy sheet.

- the final drape sheet should have a Stoll abrasion of at least about 200 cycles,and preferably at least 500 cycles, both dry and wet. The outer layer of foam provides sufficient absorbency to prevent excessive fluid run-ofi, and yet the intermediate layer of fluid impervious film preventsthe liquid from striking through the sheet, as well as providing a bacteria barrier. Moreover, the relatively highfrictional coefficient of the foam provides good non-slip characteristics to prevent dislodgment of surgical instruments, supplies and the like from the surface of the sheet during the operation. Furthermore,

the sheet has good draping characteristics, can be easily sterilized, and can be produced at a cost low enough to render the drape disposable.

One preferred method of producing the illustrative drape material is illustrated in FIG. 3. In this process, the plastic film is unwound from a roll 20 and passed through the nip formed by an adhesive print roll 21 and arubber pressure roll 22 so as to apply a predetermined pattern of adhesive to one side of the plastic film. The adhesive-coated film is then passed around the rubber pressure roll 22 and. laminated to the, underside of a web of flexible plasticfoam 23 unwound from a roll 24. In

. order to insure intimate engagement and bonding between the adhesive-coated side of the plastic film and the plastic foam 23, the two webs are passed through a nip formed by a rubber roll 25 and a rubber squeeze'roll 26 which press the two webs together, after which the composite laminated material is wound up on a roll 27.

Suitable adhesives for use in the process illustrated in FIG. 3 are aqueous emulsion adhesives, such as Polycryl 7F8, Jedbond 83-1 l7,"rnanufactured by .ledco. Chemical Company; and

' EA-89 81", manufacturedby the ChemicalDivision of Borden Inc. The adhesive is suitably applied to the film at a loading of 2 to grams per square yard and may be applied at room temperature. The pressure used to laminate the adhesive coated film to the foam material is relatively light, and is just sufficient to make good contact between the film and After the film-foam laminate is formed, it is laminated to the base sheet 10 by any suitable technique, either manual or automatic, and either as a separate operation for each separate article or as a continuous operation similar to that illustrated for the film and foam materials in FIG. 3. When the film 11 is attached to the base sheet 10 by adhesive bonding, the same adhesives mentioned above, for use in forming the film-foam laminate, may be used.

In one example of the invention, a web of antistatic polyethylene film, 2 mils in thickness, was coated with an aqueous emulsion adhesive (Polycryl 7F8, made by Polymer Industries, Inc.) at a loading of 5 1 grams per square yard at room temperature, using a printing roll having a surface roughened by sandblasting. The adhesive-coated side of the film'was then laminated to a web of polyester polyurethane h foam, '40 mils in thickness, and the two webs were pressed together at a pressure of one pound per lineal inch. Next the film-foam laminate was laminated to a tissue-fiber base sheet of the type described in the'aforementioned Sokolowski et al. US. Pat. No. 3,484,330, which has been treated to render it water repellant the lamination was accomplished by first coating the film side of the foam-film laminate with the same adhesive mentioned above, and then manually pressing the two Stoll Abrasion Absorbency Frictional Coefficient Dry Wet %Gm./4"X4"'.
