As more businesses are reopening in Maryland, the community excitedly prepares to meet one another, return to work, and use amenities that they could not have for a while. In the long-term, surgical masks continue to be an essential part of health and safety. Find out more below on surgical face masks and why FORMost Graphic Communications may be an excellent mask provider for your company.
The Importance of Face Masks
One may wonder if face masks really work. It may seem obvious to some, yet it is a fair question. Face masks protect the nose and mouth of the wearer from inhaling or exhaling dangerous pathogens. Experts have different answers to how effective face masks are against viruses, but in general, masks do help. Plus, varying types protect more against pathogens than others.
What Are Surgical Masks?
Surgical face masks, also called medical masks, are supposedly a step up from cotton masks, but are not as protective as respirators. A surgical mask is a loose-fitting, disposable product that protects the wearer from germy sprays, splashes, droplets, and large particles in the air. In turn, they protect others from saliva and other contaminants coming from the wearer. They do not protect against tiny particles like viruses as well. However, healthcare practitioners have been using masks and other PPE since at least the 1860s during medical procedures.
Who Is Using Surgical Face Masks?
Healthcare workers and patients use medical masks to protect against the dispersion of large particles and droplets. They may be beneficial for practices like dentistry, audiology, dermatology, pediatrics, and other fields. Each practice needs to decide what kinds of masks are most appropriate for their establishment.
Questions to Ask Before Purchasing
When considering what kind of mask to purchase, one should consider the general needs of the practice. How much exposure to infectious fluids or particles might your workers have? How flammable is the product? Also, how comfortable and breathable are the face masks?
