Disposable gloves are medical gloves that are used during medical examinations and procedures that help prevent cross-contamination between caregivers and patients. Disposable gloves are made of different polymers including latex, nitrile rubber, polyvinyl chloride and neoprene; they come unpowdered or powdered, making them easier to put on the hands. There are two main types of medical gloves: examination and surgical. Surgical gloves have more precise sizing with a better precision and sensitivity. Examination gloves are available as either sterile or non-sterile, while surgical gloves are generally sterile.
