What Do N95 Respirator Medical Masks help protect against and filter out?
The N95 is an industry standard protective mask provides the intended for the effectiveness of filtering up to 95 percent of particles with a mass median diameter of 0.3 micrometers to protect from PM10, PM2.5 and smaller particles.
What is NIOSH Certification?
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), under authorization of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, provides a testing, approval, and certification program assuring respirators used in the workplace meet the standards of 42 CFR Part 84.
How do N95 Respirator Masks Protect Against Viruses that are Harmful to Human Health?
The N95 designation means that when subjected to testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of N95 respirators exceed those of surgical face masks. However, even a properly fitted N95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death. It is important to recognize and follow all of the necessary safety processions in the most optimal way to prevent airborne transmission by implementing all necessary combinations of interventions, including the full hierarchy of proper medical measures, settings, and controls, and not just limited to wearing, Protective Personal Equipment (PPE).
How does the N95 Masks protect against harmful particles or viruses that can negatively affect human health?
Studies also show that linked exposure to harmful particles and chemical pollution may contribute to a number of health problems, including respiratory illness and cardiovascular disease. Many individuals that have been exposed to chemical add/or the chemical combustion of these types of harmful products have demonstrated the likelihood of increased risk for developing different types of cancer or disease. These effects are often demonstrated to be more pronounced among the most vulnerable of age group such as infants, the very young and most elderly. Anyone exposed to these harmful particles should use the most adequate protection and take any necessary safety processions based on exposure.
