It's designed to prevent inhalation of bacteria and droplets from the air by capturing airborne bacteria which are shed in the mouth and nostrils of the wearer and catching them in a protective covering. There are many unique forms of medical masks available and are used by many different medical professionals. Some of the common uses for medical masks include providing protection to the respiratory system and eyes from infectious disease and minimizing exposure to contaminated equipment. The many diverse materials used to make medical masks range from latex to silicon. Latex masks have long been a preferred material by many medical professionals for their ability to resist bacteria and other contaminants while maintaining sufficient ventilation. But while they're resistant to infections and contamination, latex masks can deteriorate and may not provide adequate ventilation or are too thin. While they are more durable than many other kinds of medical mask materials, they are not ideal for long periods of usage. Polystyrene, also known as Styrofoam or High-Density Silicon, is a fairly new type of medical mask material. This sort of mask is similar to a plastic container, which is generally made of a high density foam which has an airtight seal when stuffed with medical waste and put within the hospital. Styrofoam is typically thick enough to prevent germs from getting into the individual '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 deeply. They are more expensive than other medical mask materials but have shown to be an effective option 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, which makes it very versatile. for use in medical environments. However, it is much less easily cleaned as other materials and requires regular replacement or specialist cleaning. Since these masks are intended for use by healthcare workers, they should be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis to keep the patient and staff shielded. This should be done by a trained professional using antibacterial solutions, which is usually included in any equipment bought by the hospital or medical facility. Cleaning is easy since the materials are nonporous and there are no chemicals used to wash them. They require just a simple wipe down with a damp cloth or wet wash cloth to remove excess moisture and bacteria. In cases of excessive wear, like in the case of prolonged hospital work hours, it's important to clean the mask often to prevent contamination and ensure a fresh infection-free environment. To disinfect the mask, sanitizer solutions should be poured into a spray bottle and allowed to soak into the foam. The solution should be permitted to sit for 30 minutes, so it doesn't soak in the mask but instead to the skin beneath. After the sanitizer was implemented, it's important to rinse off the mask completely with clean water to remove any remaining sanitizer. Cleaning masks at the hospital can be a pain for the staff members, but if done properly can prevent infections and reduce costs by protecting the employees and patients from contaminants that can infect them. Even a very simple solution of one cup of bleach diluted in two quarts of water is enough to purge and sterilize the mask, preventing it from spreading bacteria and potentially causing a severe infection. Although sanitizing is quite important other than the obvious reason of preventing contamination, the mask itself might also need sanitizing to remove food, drink or other material which can get into the air during use. By way of example, if there are patients that are in and out of the space during the course of this day, the mask may frequently become contaminated during their use. Cleaning this region of the mask with a bleach solution gives 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, in addition to clean up droppings from patients and staff.
