CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1 . A combination glove for detecting breaches of hydrophilic or aqueous fluid comprising:

an top elastomer layer with an inner surface, namely the inner-top surface, the top elastomer layer being translucent or transparent;

an bottom elastomer layer with an outer surface, namely the outer-bottom surface, the bottom elastomer layer being darker than the top elastomer layer; and a space or seam between the layers in which the hydrophilic or aqueous fluid can flow,

wherein to either the inner-top or the outer-bottom surface has been applied a hydrophilicity promoting composition of (i) a polyvinyl alcohol or (ii) an alkyl-aryl compound or a siloxane compound having a pendent one to two oxy-polymers, (iii) a quaternary amine including an alkyl of C8 to C24, or (iv) a mixture of the foregoing, wherein the oxy-polymer is (1 ) a poly-oxyalkylene polymer that is predominantly oxyethylene or (2) a polyvinyl alcohol,

wherein the hydrophilicity promoting composition enhances the spreading in the space or seam of any of the hydrophilic or aqueous fluid that breaches the top elastomer or bottom layer.

2. The combination glove of claim 1 , wherein the hydrophilicity promoting composition comprises (i) the polyvinyl alcohol, or (iii) the quaternary amine

3. The combination glove of claim 1 , wherein the hydrophilicity promoting composition comprises (ii.1 ) the alkyl-aryl compound having a pendent one to two oxy-polymers, or (ii.2) the siloxane compound having a pendent one to two oxy-polymers.

4. The combination glove of one of claims 1 to 3, wherein the top glove has an outer surface that has hydrophobic particles and hydrophobic fluorocarbon adhered thereto in amounts that limit the adherence of human blood, optionally wherein the top glove outer surface has a further silicone composition.

5. The combination glove of one of claims 1 to 4, wherein the hydrophilicity promoting composition further comprises a hydrophilic compound of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen wherein the carbon number is 2 to 8, optionally, wherein hydrophilic compound is a polyol.

6. The combination glove of one of claims 1 to 4, wherein one of the inner-top or the outer-bottom surface has said hydrophilicity promoting composition, and the other is treated to render it hydrophobic, optionally wherein the hydrophobic surface comprises a sublayer of film-forming polymer and wax.

7. The combination glove of one of claims 1 to 6, wherein the two layers are spot joined at spaced-apart locations such that the combination glove can be donned as one glove, while retaining the space or seam needed for breach detection.

8. The combination glove of one of claims 1 to 7, wherein the immediate water contact angle on the surface with hydrophilicity promoting composition is 45 0 or less, optionally wherein the 5 second water contact angle on the surface with hydrophilicity promoting composition is 30 0 or less.

9. The combination glove of one of claims 1 to 8, wherein the oxy-polymer is (a) a poly-oxyalkylene polymer that is predominantly oxyethylene.

10. The combination glove of one of claims 1 to 9, wherein the oxy-polymer is (b) a polyvinyl alcohol.

1 1. The combination glove of one of claims 1 to 9, wherein the outer-bottom surface has the hydrophilicity promoting composition.

12. The combination glove of claim 1 1 , wherein hydrophilicity promoting composition further comprises a hydrophilic compound of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen wherein the carbon number is 2 to 8, optionally wherein hydrophilic compound is a polyol.

13. The combination glove of one of claims 1 1

surface is treated to render it hydrophobic.

14. The combination glove of claim 13, wherein the hydrophobic surface comprises a sublayer of film-forming polymer and wax.

15. A method of conducting surgery comprising:

a surgical worker donning a combination glove of one of claims 1 to 21 ; and conducting a medical procedure in which the combination glove is exposed to biological fluids from a patient, optionally further comprising:

the surgical worker removing the combination glove and replacing it with a second combination glove when the first combination glove darkens consistent with there being aqueous fluid between the top and bottom elastomer layers.
