OZMAN MEDICAL FACE MASKS are produced according to EN14683 (medical, procedural) to protect healthcare staff and patients from infectious diseases and cross contamination. Medical face masks help prevent large particles expelled by the wearer (e.g. spit, mucous) from reaching the patient or work environment. OZMAN MEDICAL masks are appropriate for situations where exposure to blood and/or bodily fluids from the patient or work environment is not a risk for the healthcare worker.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Choosing between a medical mask or respirator :
A mask can be either a disposable medical device (a “medical” type mask) or personal protective equipment (a “respirator”), worn by caregivers and/or contagious patients. Depending on the type of mask, it protects against the transmission of infectious agents by “droplet” or “airborne” routes. Depending on the standard it meets and its protection class, it can prevent contamination by viruses such as coronavirus, SARS and H1N1.
Why choose a medical mask?
A medical or procedural mask is a disposable medical device. It protects against infectious agents transmitted by “droplets.” However, it does not protect against “airborne” infectious agents. It will therefore not prevent the wearer from being potentially contaminated by a virus.
A medical mask does two things :
Prevents droplets of saliva or secretions from the upper respiratory tract when the wearer exhales. If worn by the caregiver, the medical mask protects the patient and his or her environment (air, surfaces, equipment). If worn by a contagious patient, it prevents the patient from contaminating his or her surroundings and environment. Protects the wearer from infection transmitted by “droplets” or from the risk of splashes of biological fluids. In the latter case, the medical mask must have a waterproof layer. It can also be equipped with a visor to protect the eyes. Medical masks can be used also In the case of isolation.
Storage Conditions :
