Abstract

An integral surgical gown incudes a body tube with front and back portions, and shoulder portions supporting the gown on a user. A pair of body sleeves and a hood assembly are permanently attached to the body tube. The hood assembly includes a hood, and a transparent shield and mask permanently attached to the hood. Fluid impervious panels cover the sleeves and front of the body tube while an open mesh provides ventilation at the back portions of the body tube. By merely donning the single integral gown, these protective elements are automatically positioned on the user.
