Have you ever wondered how big the influence of wearing medical masks? does not seem to be too much of an effect, given how thin a health mask, but a new study shows that they provide greater assistance than previously thought.

Crosstex International, a subsidiary of Cantel Medical Corp., announced the publication of research results that show the value of prevention of infection is much greater than the use of medical masks generally assumed previously. The results revealed that a medical mask or respirator is only effective when used by people trying to protect themselves from exposure to infectious material, but more than that a medical mask that meets the standards when worn on the potential sources of infection, the overall level of protection increased to 300 fold.

This study supports the guide “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” date on Seasonal Influenza Prevention Strategy, which recommends the use of medical masks to minimize the potential exposure to influenza virus. Simulation studies to test the efficacy of medical masks and N95 respirators (disposable face mask) to reduce exposure to infectious particles when used as protective devices (to protect the wearer) or as “source control” (to control infection at source, such as people with flu symptoms). Results The researchers showed “the most important factor in reducing exposure to infectious particles are deflected (reflected) particles exhaled by the source.”

“This new evidence gives new insight to healthcare providers and public health officials about the benefits of medical face masks as a control device for the source of infection,” says Gary Steinberg, CEO of Crosstex International. While these medical masks (disposable face mask) is often referred to as “PPE” (Personal Protection Equipment), which is used in order to protect patients from acquiring infections from the doctor. The results of this latest study is the first time reveals a critical role in controlling the use of medical masks on the source of infection and further demonstrate that the use of medical masks in the right way to give the best results in controlling exposure to infectious material from the source of infection.
