Choosing the Right Disposable Face Masks

Understanding the needs of your organization or personal use for disposable face masks is essential to making the best decision in your purchase.  There are a number of different varieties of disposable face masks on the market and not everyone will be a good choice for every health care worker.  Choose the correct masks for the job and your masks will provide the kind of protection that they were meant to provide.

The first thing that you should be aware of when you are choosing your disposable face masks that you will buy are the materials that are used.  There are a number of different materials that are used in protective clothing items such as face masks.  The mask should be made of a breathable material that is also resistant to fluids and meets the level of standards for the work that will be performed. 

The disposable face masks should also offer comfort for the wearer.  In some cases, people will be wearing the face masks for an extended period of time.  Choose the face mask that offers comfort and protection.

There are also face masks that offer extended protection for the entire face and come equipped with face shields.  These are ideal for those who work in areas where they may be splashed with fluids. 

Other activities will only require the use of a beard cover that is not designed to protect the wearer, but rather the materials that they are working with.  For instance, if it is vital that the materials that you are working with be free of particulate, a beard cover will usually be required.  Spittle is sometimes a problem as well and the face mask will protect the materials from spittle that is distributed through breathing.

Choosing the right amount of protection for your disposable face masks is a great deal more involved than you might have thought.  Consider the job that the wearer will be performing and the level of protection that will be needed.  Those working with hazardous materials will need a face mask that offers protection from breathable materials as well as a fluid resistant material.

Anti fog disposable face masks are a good choice for workers that wear glasses and run the risk of fogging lenses while they are working.  These masks offer a good seal that will prevent eyeglasses from fogging up from redirected breath leaking from the mask.

Some surgical disposable face masks are hypoallergenic and do not contain any dyes that might irritate sensitive skin.  If you have sensitive skin and must keep your face covered, these are the best choice for you.  It is well worth the extra cost of these items if you run the risk of breaking out from wearing your face mask for extended periods of time.

There are many reasons to wear disposable face masks, from protecting the wearer from potential safety hazards to protecting patients and other materials from the particulate that come from the wearer, there is a mask that will work well for you.  Choose the material that offers the most comfort, protection and safety while you are performing your work.
