Brief Summary:
During the pandemic era, medical personnel should wear full protective suits. However, they limit the performance of medical procedures. One of the main questions is whether to use double gloves. The study was based on dying gloves used during resuscitation. The gloves were secured with disposable hermetically sealed pouches and described by one of the EMS team members - each time after resuscitation was completed.
