BARRIER® Standard Surgical Masks

BARRIER® Standard Surgical Masks

BARRIER® Standard Surgical masks offer  low breathing resistance and excellent filter characteristics. Treatment of the inner layer provides softness and binds the moisture from the exhaled air. The stiffness of the outer layer supports the cup shape of the mask allowing room to breathe.

Clear evidence for use of mask in clean air operating rooms

Bacterial shedding, wound contamination and clinical infection rates in clean wounds are influenced by staff clothing in the operating room. This was shown in a study performed in the UK, with the aim of clarifying the relative contribution of headwear, masks and clothing to the control of wound contamination in both ultraclean and conventional airflow operating rooms. The study concludes that headwear, masks and clothing with elastic cuffs should be worn by all staff in ultraclean-air operating rooms1.
