Disposable surgical sheets are sterile, single-use materials used during surgical procedures to provide protection and absorption. They are made up of non-woven materials like polypropylene, polyethylene and polyester. Disposable surgical sheets provide increased patient protection and safety as compared to reusable surgical drapes and sheets. They help prevent cross-contamination and spread of infection. Their porous structure enables absorption of fluids and prevents them from spreading to other surrounding areas. Their disposable nature eliminates washing and sterilization costs associated with reusable sheets.
