Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR TESTING PERSONAL BARRIERS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE CONTROLE POUR ELEMENTS DE PROTECTION
Abstract
(EN)
The method and apparatus for testing a personal barrier (G) such as a medical glove comprises establishing a reference circuit through the body (S) of an individual wearing the personal barrier (G). An electrical lead (24) is connected with a saline solution (32) or the body (P) of the patient. The defective personal barrier (G) is identified through the establishment of an external circuit through the practitioner and the test solution or the patient. An alarm (40, 42) is sounded to alert the wearer to the defective condition. The detection is preferably accomplished by means of sensing the resistance of the external circuits.
(FR)
Un procédé et un appareil permettent de tester un élément de protection (G) tel qu'un gant médical en établissant un circuit de référence à travers le corps (S) de la personne qui porte l'élément de protection (G). Un conducteur électrique (24) est connecté avec une solution saline (32) ou avec le corps (P) du patient. Un élément défectueux (G) est détecté lorsqu'un circuit externe s'établit entre la personne qui le porte et la solution ou le patient. Un signal d'alarme (40, 42) sonne afin d'avertir la personne qui porte l'élément de protection que celui-ci est défectueux. La détection se fait de préférence en captant la résistance des circuits externes.
