Medical protective masks are commonly referred to as N95 masks. The filtration efficiency of medical protective masks for non-oily 0.3μm particles is greater than 95%. Medical protective masks have a good fit with the wearer’s face. They can filter particles in the air and block flying. Contaminants such as foam, blood, body fluids, secretions, etc., have a filtration efficiency of more than 95% for non-oily particles, and are commonly used personal protective equipment to deal with airborne diseases.
The protection is high, and the breathability and moisture absorption of the mask also become worse, which means that the comfort of wearing it is reduced, and the wearing time cannot be too long.
For the general public who are not high-risk occupational groups, it is not necessary to wear N95 masks to prevent new coronavirus pneumonia. Medical surgical masks can also block most of the viruses stuck to the droplets from entering the respiratory tract.

2. When wearing a disposable medical mask, fully unfold the folded surface, completely wrap the mouth, nose, and chin, and then press the nose clip to make the mask fit the face completely. Also note that disposable masks are divided into inside and outside. The light-colored surface has moisture absorption function. It should be close to the nose and mouth, and the dark-colored surface should face outwards. To check whether the mask fits tightly with your face, the method is very simple. Take a deep breath, and then quickly blow a few breaths, you can find whether your nose and mouth are leaking.

The principle of non-repetitive use, disposable masks need to be replaced every day, and cannot be reused.
For reusable cotton masks, they should be cleaned in time and placed in the sun for disinfection. Used cotton masks can absorb bacteria and dust, and they can be exposed to different sources of pollution if they are left in their pockets. If they are not cleaned and worn again, they are very likely to cause respiratory tract infections.
Children over 3 years old can choose to wear gauze and cotton masks, because these masks have better dust filtering ability, and are also more comfortable and breathable, which are more suitable for children to wear. In addition, pay attention to take off the mask more and breathe fresh air. Patients with respiratory diseases, especially asthmatics, the elderly, and children, wearing a mask for a long time may cause breathing problems.
