Respirators

These masks are designed to protect medical workers from the risk of contamination by airborne contaminants. Respirators are available in various sizes and must be fitted properly to the wearer’s size to provide the correct level of protection. A respirator consists of a filter through which the inhaled air passes. This filter cleans the air before it goes into the respiratory tract. A correctly fitted mask ensures that the air passes through the filter and not from the gaps between the face and the mask. These masks are recommended for people who work very near to the patients with flu like symptoms.

Surgical Masks

Surgical masks are used by medical professionals while surgeries or other medical procedures. These masks act as a barrier to splashes of blood or bodily fluids while operating. Sometimes infected persons are also made to wear surgical masks so that others do not catch the infection. Surgical masks have a capacity of trapping large droplets of bodily fluids that may carry bacteria or viruses along. These masks also keep hands and fingers soiled with body fluids away from the face and mouth while working. It must be kept in mind that surgical masks are not designed to protect a person from small airborne viruses and bacteria. The airborne contaminants can harm the wearer by getting into the nose or mouth by spaces between the mask and the face.
