Global N95 Mask Market: Introduction
The N95 Mask is used as one of the personnel protective products. It is used to protect the wearer from airborne particles and from liquid contaminating the face. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend that the general public wear N95 respirators to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Covid-19. It is designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles.
The 'N95' means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small that is 0.3 micron test particles. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), even a properly fitted N95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death.
The edges of the respirator are designed to form a seal around the mouth and the nose. Surgical N95 Respirators are commonly used in healthcare settings. They should not be shared or reused. N95 respirators with exhalation valves should not be used when sterile conditions are needed. According to the Food and Drug Administration, N95 respirators are labeled as only single-use and disposable devices. They are regulated by the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) in the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
