There are many different forms of medical masks available and are used by a variety of medical professionals. Other uses include protecting the respiratory system from chemical pollutants and irritants, reducing exposure to harmful agents, preventing damage to the eyes, skin, and nasal cavities and helping to protect the skin from burns and abrasions.
The many different materials used to make medical masks vary from latex to silicon. But while they're resistant to infections and contamination, latex masks can deteriorate and may not provide sufficient ventilation or are too thin. While they are stronger than many other types of health mask materials, they aren't ideal for extended periods of usage.
Polystyrene, also known as Styrofoam or High-Density Silicon, is a relatively new type of health mask material. This sort of mask is like a plastic container, which is generally produced from a high density foam which has an airtight seal when filled with medical waste and put inside the hospital.
Styrofoam is normally thick enough to prevent bacteria from getting into the patient's respiratory system and is designed in such a way that air can be pumped through the mask immediately. Because it's not thick, it's also able to move around freely, keeping the nose clean and the mouth dry and preventing contamination from the individual 's sneezing, coughing or breathing heavily. They're more expensive than other medical mask substances but have proven to be an effective choice for hospital employees.
Silicone is a natural product and therefore will not degrade over time like other materials. It's a water-resistant covering and can be easily molded into any shape or form, making it very versatile. However, it's not as readily cleaned as other substances and requires regular replacement or specialist cleaning.
Since these masks are designed for use by healthcare employees, they need to be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis to keep the patient and staff protected. This should be done by a trained professional using antibacterial solutions, which is typically included in any equipment purchased by the hospital or medical facility.
Cleaning is easy since the substances are nonporous and there are no chemicals used to wash them. In cases of excessive wear, like in the case of prolonged hospital work hours, it's important to clean the mask often to avoid contamination and ensure a new infection-free environment.
The solution should then be allowed to sit for 30 minutes, so it doesn't soak in the mask but rather to the skin beneath. After the sanitizer has been implemented, it's important to rinse the mask off completely with clean water to remove any residual sanitizer.
Cleaning masks at the hospital can be a pain for the staff members, but if done correctly can prevent infections and reduce costs by protecting the employees and patients from contaminants which can infect them. Even a very simple solution of one cup of bleach diluted in 2 quarts of water is sufficient to purge and sterilize the mask, preventing it from spreading germs and potentially causing a severe infection.
Although sanitizing is very important other than the obvious reason of avoiding contamination, the mask itself might also need sanitizing to eliminate food, drink or other substance which may get into the air during use. By way of instance, if there are patients who are in and out of the room throughout the course of this day, the mask can frequently become contaminated during their use. Cleaning this region of the mask using a bleach solution provides a clean-air space that prevents contamination and allows the air to flow freely. Bleach solutions may also be used to sanitize tools and instruments in the room, as well as clean up droppings from patients and staff.
