Issues with N95 Mask Respirators

Mask Facts:

  • Masks aren’t interchangeable.
  • Masks are designed to protect patients, and HCWs only from splash—not aerosols.
  • Masks aren’t required to be fitted-gaps OK.
  • Masks are designed for one-time use; masks are often re-used.
  • Masks are often worn incorrectly.
  • Masks are insufficient to protect against airborne particulates.

N95 (Mask) Respirator Facts:

  • N95s must be fitted to the wear’s face and seal tested.
  • A fit test determines size of N95.
  • A seal check determines whether it has been donned and adjusted properly.
  • N95s should be performed at least annually, or at the occurance of facial changes, including
    • Scarring
    • Noticable weight loss
    • Cosmetic surgery
    • Dental changes
    • Facial hair

Summary of key points relative to general use of respirators in healthcare environments.

  • Respirators must be NIOSH approved.
  • Employers must establish and implement a written respiratory protection program, to include:
    • Respirator selection
    • Medical evaluation (employee fitness to wear identified respirators)
    • Fit testing
    • Training
    • Use
    • Care (maintenance)

NOTE:

Many, even healthcare professionals “erroneously” believe that the need/not need of respirators is based on TB patients.

  • TB patient frequency is only the most obvious justification for protection against airborne pathogens.
  • Even low incidence of patients and conditions that may produce airborne pathogens is not a justification for not being optimally prepared—
  • If you are not properly prepared, you will not be able to avoid an incident when the conditions occur.
  • Even one incident is costly.
  • What is the cost of one incident?
    • A couple dozen MAXAIRs? Several dozen? More?
    • Even an “innocuous” case of TB could cost an RN incident for the equivalent of 15-25 MAXAIRs—enough to cover the N.P. rooms of most hospitals.

Key PAPR Selection Criteria

Key to insuring infection prevention is compliance. Without it the risks of infection significantly increase - an incident will occur; it is only a matter of when. PAPRs’ inherently higher filtration efficiencies (v. N95 Masks) provide the best protection. More importantly, they can lead to improved compliance versus N95s.

N95 Mask compliance is confounded by high percentages of HCWs not passing fit testing. These personnel need alternate protection or must be “managed around”. Many, who do use masks, re-use them, which is inappropriate. All this leads to cost and management burdens and poor compliance and safety.

Many who are unfamiliar with PAPRs perceive they are too costly, too difficult. In practice, they find PAPRs can be more comfortable, better for patient communication, quite easy to use, and more cost effective to implement. More user and patient friendly PAPRs enhance compliance, which leads to better infection control.

5 key parameters in evaluating PAPRs:

  1. Donning and doffing ease. How much time and paraphernalia – less is better.
  2. Comfort. Not restrictive to breathing with air-flow adjustment matching activity level; not hot to wear for long periods; not too close fitting to cause claustrophobic feelings; quiet so communication is not hampered.
  3. Bulk and weight - interference with maneuverability. Check for components extending away from the body for catching or snagging or that make moving around the patient’s bed and other equipment more difficult and a hazard.
  4. Universal between uses and between HCWs. Eliminate need for variable and unreliable results and the costs of fit testing; easily decontaminated between users so all HCWs can always be protected with minimal training and no fit testing.
  5. Ensure confidence in HCWs’ safety in hazardous environments. N95s are always suspect - one isn’t sure of the fit of the mask they don on any given day. Many PAPRs conceal filters and batteries - HCWs can’t tell, without disassembly, if filters are installed and installed properly, and checking and swapping a run down battery for one fully charged is a chore. These key components should be visible and easily assessable - they ensure proper air filtration and flow. Look for real time visual indicators that provide air flow and battery status continuously during use, unobtrusively. This adds confidence to convenience and comfort; together they facilitate compliance, and improve infection prevention.

Industrial

Written by

The NIOSH approved MAXAIR PPE line of PAPRs includes several configurations to meet the needs of many diverse industrial applications ranging from woodworking and powder coating to construction and CAFOs.

All MAXAIR powered air purifying respirators include key advantages compared with conventional PAPRs, highlighted by:

  • An integrated helmet design that is hose-free (no air tube) and therefore eliminates the need for a bulky blower unit as with conventional PAPRs. This minimizes overall weight while providing unrestricted, full maneuverability.
  • The unique channeled air flow provides the quietest and coolest PAPR for excellent communications and protection against heat stress.
  • The exclusive always on and visible safety LEDs provide unobtrusive visual monitoring, in the users peripheral vision, of all important indications of battery charge status and filter air flow. These indicators eliminate the need for additional equipment and off-use time for manually measuring these key operational safety parameters.
