N95 masks

Actually, type of respirator, N95 mask offers more protection than surgical mask do because it can filter out both large and particles when wearer inhales. As name indicate, mask is designed to block 95 percentage of very small particles. Some N95 masks have that make them easier to breathe through. With this type of mask, unfiltered air is released when wearer exhales. Health care providers must be trained and pass fit test to confirm proper seal before using N95 respirator in workplace. Like surgical masks, N95 masks intended to be disposable. However, researchers are ways to disinfect N95 masks so they can be reuse. Some N95 masks, and even some cloth have one - way valves that make them easier to breathe through. But because valve releases unfiltered air when wearer breathes out, this type of mask doesn't prevent wearer from spreading virus. For this reason, some have banned them.
