Buy Medical face masks designed to support infection control
Medical face masks are designed to minimise the transfer of bacteria and particles from medical personnel to the patient.
Your choice of medical face mask can make a difference. Our medical face masks offer bacterial filtration, which reduces the risk of infection and the need for costly aftercare. Another important aspect of the medical face masks is comfort. Medical face masks are all designed to promote high comfort and low air resistance to reduce irritating the wearer.
Designed to promote high comfort
Our medical face masks come with extra-long tie-bands
Our standard medical face masks offer high filtration capacity, limiting the spread of bacteria within the OR. And thanks to low breathing resistance, they are comfortable during long work shifts.
Our range of medical face masks can be used in wide range of situations. All our medical face masks offer high filtration capacity while retaining low breathing resistance and are classified as type II or IIR as per EN 14683.
A medical mask is a loose-fitting, disposable device that creates a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment. Medical masks are regulated under 21 CFR 878.4040. Medical masks are not to be shared and may be labeled as surgical, isolation, dental, or medical procedure masks. They may come with or without a face shield. These are often referred to as face masks, although not all face masks are regulated as surgical masks. Medical masks are made in different thicknesses and with different ability to protect you from contact with liquids. These properties may also affect how easily you can breathe through the face mask and how well the surgical mask protects you.If worn properly, a surgical mask is meant to help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter that may contain germs (viruses and bacteria), keeping it from reaching your mouth and nose. Medical masks may also help reduce exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others.While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a face mask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or certain medical procedures. Medical masks also do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the face mask and your face. Medical masks are not intended to be used more than once. If your mask is damaged or soiled, or if breathing through the mask becomes difficult, you should remove the face mask, discard it safely, and replace it with a new one. To safely discard your mask, place it in a plastic bag and put it in the trash. Wash your hands after handling the used mask.
Before putting on a medical mask, clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Cover mouth and nose with mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the medical mask.
Avoid touching the mask while using it; if you do, clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Replace the mask with a new one as soon as it is damp and do not re-use single-use medical masks.
To remove the medical mask: remove it from behind (do not touch the front of mask); discard immediately in a closed bin; clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
