Patient 'splash' protective mask
Honeywell has recently launched the Blue 1H Half Mask Respirator. The respirator is a reusable, elastomeric air purifying respiratory device that offers protection against airborne infection diseases. It is perfect for health-care workers. A pliable, comfortable silicone mask, the Blue 1H Half Mask Respirator eliminates gaps for a better fit, and provides an impenetrable barrier against patient “splash” — such as spray from a sneeze or coughing which could get past other filters. The P100 filters used in the mask filter out 99.97 per cent of particulates, including microscopic viruses and bacteria. It also has an exhalation port diverter that directs the wearer’s exposed breath from away from the patient. It is also designed with a speech diaphragm to make communication while wearing the mask easier, clearer and more efficient. The reusable mask reduces reliance on disposable respirators which is an economic benefit. The mask is available in a variety of colours.
