What are Surgical Masks?

Surgical masks are worn in health & social care and as NHS PPE (personal protective equipment) as respiratory protection whilst carrying out nursing and surgical procedures.

Surgical masks are also known as medical masks and face masks.

The surgical masks cover the nose and mouth of the wearer and protect the wearer of the Type IIR mask from infected droplets entering their respiratory system, but also protects the patient from infected droplets from the healthcare worker during surgery.

 

The difference between a surgical mask and a respiratory mask

The surgical masks are loose-fitting and disposable and are used to block large potentially infected droplets, splashes or sprays from the wearer’s respiratory system, nose or mouth during surgical procedures.

Type IIR masks also offer the extra protective benefit of being fluid resistant, represented by the R in the name.

Surgical masks also remind the user to avoid touching their face, which is the main cause of spread of bacteria and viruses such as CoronavirusCOVID-19, by cross contamination.

The IIR face masks unlike respirator masks do not filter the air of small particles and the nature of their loose fit means that they are not as protective against germs.

Respirator masks offer a high air filtration rate in order to protect the wearer such as:

The respirator mask is capable of protecting from inhaling even the smallest particles into their respiratory system. Respirator masks are also designed to be close fitting and a fit test is required to ensure the mask fits securely and seal the wearer from germs and contaminants.

Respirator masks come in different protection levels indicated by a grading system, different grades are required depending on use for the mask, such as procedure, environment and risk level.

FFP2 masks and the N95 mask – US equivalent and the KN95 mask which is the Chinese equivalent provide the wearer with an assigned protection factor of 10
