3M's expertise in non-woven filtration and coating technologies was key in designing a variety of surgical face masks and respirators to help meet your infection control and personal protection needs.
While surgical masks (molded and tie-on) have been used for years in the health care field to help reduce contamination caused by microorganisms exhaled from the mouth and nasopharynx, a new need for protection is developing because of use of laser electrocautery equipment and prophylactic dental care of animals. Using these tools can cause bacteria, aerosolized blood and body fluids to be atomized into the air which can be a potential source of respiratory disease.
Respirators provide the wearer with respiratory protection from defined airborne hazards that can result from exposure to harmful air contaminants.
