Surgical Masks - What Do You Need to Know?

Jun. 16, 2021

Surgical Mask Suppliers share their knowledge about surgical masks with you in the hope that it will be helpful to you.

A surgical mask is a loose fitting, disposable device that forms a physical barrier between the wearer's mouth and nose and potential contaminants in the surrounding environment. Surgical masks are not to be shared and may be labeled as surgical, isolation, dental or medical procedure masks. They may or may not come with a face shield. These are commonly referred to as face shields, although not all face shields are specified as surgical masks.

Surgical masks come in different thicknesses and have different abilities to protect you from exposure to liquids. These characteristics may also affect how easily you can breathe through the mask and how well the surgical mask protects you.

When worn properly, Surgical Masks are designed to help block large droplets, splashes, sprays or splatters that may contain germs from reaching your mouth and nose. Surgical masks can also help reduce the exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others.

While surgical masks may be effective in blocking splashes and large particle droplets, by design, masks do not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted through coughing, sneezing or certain medical procedures. Surgical masks also do not completely protect against bacteria and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the mask's surface and your face.

Surgical masks should not be used more than once. If your mask is damaged or soiled, or if breathing through it becomes difficult, you should remove it, discard it safely, and replace it with a new one. To safely dispose of your mask, place it in a plastic bag and put it in the trash. Wash your hands after handling a used mask.
