What are surgical masks ?


Surgical masks are disposable devices that cover the mouth and nose during medical procedures. They prevent the spread of infection between sick and well persons. Surgical masks are typically used in a health facility (hospitals, emergency departments, out-patient facilities, residential care facilities, emergency medical services, and home health care delivery.
During disease outbreaks, health officials sometimes recommend that the public wear surgical masks to control the spread of the disease.

What should I know before using surgical masks ?

• Using surgical masks will not fully protect you from being infected. Hand-washing, isolating infected patients, and covering the mouth and nose when coughing also help to reduce to the risk of infection.
• Masks must be changed when they become wet with saliva or other bodily fluids, as they lose their protective properties.
Surgical masks are not tested against specific microorganisms and do not prevent specific diseases.
• Never reuse, wash or disinfect surgical masks.
• Never share surgical masks with others.
• Place used or soiled masks into a tied plastic bag to prevent dripping.
• Wash hands thoroughly with soap and running water, or use an alcohol-based hand gel after handling.
