Type IIR Surgical Face Mask

A pack of 10 3 ply disposable surgical face masks that offer enhanced protection in comparison to standard masks. IIR masks are fluid resistant, helping to prevent infected droplets from entering the respiratory system.

Surgical masks are intended to be worn by health professionals or the general public to shield. The surgical masks work by creating a barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer, and the immediate environment.

Recent guidance from the Government has suggested that face coverings should be worn in instances where social distancing may not always be possible. These masks are extremely handy to keep with you when you travel out and about, so you have them to hand when necessary when on public transport, in taxis and when shopping where social distancing may not always be possible.

Face masks are for general public use and should be used while still adhering to social distancing and maintaining good hand hygiene.

Fluid resistant surgical masks

Fluid-resistant Type IIR surgical masks provide barrier protection against respiratory droplets reaching the mucosa of the mouth and nose. They should be well fitted and subject to the same level of care in use as respirators.

Fluid-resistant masks are for single use or single session use and then must be discarded. Type IIR masks should be discarded and replaced and NOT be subject to continued use in any of the circumstances outlined for respirators.

The protective effect of masks against severe acute respiratory syndrome and other respiratory viral infections has been well established. There is no evidence that respirators add value over Fluid-resistant face masks for droplet protection when both are used with recommended wider Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) measures in clinical care.
