Super Filtration, Fluid Resistant, Level 3

Description

The ProShield® Elite Pleated contains a mask insert that keeps the mask fabric away from the wearer's face. For use during procedures, such as orthopaedics and cardiac surgery, where there is a high risk of exposure to blood and body fluids.

Features and Benefits

  • Submicron filtration - Fluid resistant (160mmHg)
  • Triple pleat design for easy breathing
  • Comfortable hypoallergenic inner liner
  • Anti-glare strip to minimise reflections
  • Suitable for use in all surgical procedures.

Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE)

  • With a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of greater than 99% for media greater than 3 microns, this mask provides superior protection from potential infection.

BFE is an independent test conducted by Nelson Laboratories that measures the effectiveness of face mask materials to filter out bacteria.

Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE)

  • The super high Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE) material filters >99% of particles greater than 0.1 microns. When securely fitted, the mask helps to provide an effective barrier to particulate matter from laser plumes and electrocautery procedures.

PFE measures effectiveness of the mask material to filter particulate matter.

Breathability (Delta P)

  • The mask design provides excellent breathability and low delta P (≤2.8) ensuring coolness and comfort even when worn for an extended period.

Delta P, also conducted by Nelson Laboratories, is a test that measures the breathability of mask materials, ranking masks on comfort and coolness for the surgical mask wearer. The lower the figure, the cooler and more comfortable the mask.

Fluid Resistance

  • The Super Fluid Resistant four layer design provides optimum fluid resistance thus minimising the risk of infection through strikethrough.

Fluid resistance is measured in accordance with ASTM F1862-98 & ASTM F1862-00a standard test method for resistance of medical face masks to penetration by synthetic blood at 16.0KPa pressure.
