A surgical face mask, sometimes called an anti-inflammatory face mask, is designed to be worn by medical professionals during healthcare operations. Surgical masks designed for this purpose are designed to prevent infection in patients and preventing accidental injuries to staff and patients by capturing airborne bacteria and liquid droplets in the mouth and nose of the wearer. The concept behind the design of surgical or anti-inflammatories masks is simple: they are supposed to keep the skin from swelling. How does one go about choosing the right kind of mask for a particular application though?
There are two kinds of skin care application that face masks can be used for, according to Dr. Bruce Fife. “One” of this application uses only cleanser to cleanse the face and clear away any debris and bacteria on the skin. The other kind of application requires the use of cleanser plus antiseptic cream, cleanser plus anti-bacterial cream or a combination of the two. “One” of the types of skin applications in which face masks can be used is for cleansing the face and keeping it clean and bacteria free.
“The second” of the two scenarios also applies to using these types of masks. In situations where breathing is critical, wearing a face mask while breathing can help prevent serious complications. This happens because if there are foreign objects lodged in the throat or nasal passages, such objects would not be inhaled into the lungs if there were no barriers to prevent them from entering. As a result, they could cause infections or even death. Therefore, by wearing a face mask while breathing can save the patient’s life.
Face masks have also been used to fight against other illnesses and spread infections too. For example, some virus spreads through direct contact. However, a face mask can prevent the spread of these viruses, which means people who wear face masks are less likely to get them. As an example, the cold virus spreads through direct contact on the hands and feet. However, if we use a face mask to keep our hands and feet clean and our eyes free of dirt and dust, then we are less likely to get colds and flu.
On the other hand, face masks can also be used when a person has a cold or fever. The reason why a face mask can prevent the spread of the sickness is because the virus spreads from the nose to the mouth. A cold spreads from the nose to the lungs and so on. However, some virus spreads from the mouth to the throat or even to the stomach. A face mask can prevent this type of virus spread as the virus can be carried from one person to another on the wind.
Face masks can be worn on humans and animals. For example, a cat will wear a cloth face mask to protect its nose and mouth, whereas a dog may be wearing a surgical face mask to protect its throat, esophagus and stomach. Humans wearing cloth face masks are thought to prevent the transmission of diseases via air, however, they cannot prevent the transmission of viral infections. So, it is always best not to wear a face mask while working in the house, but if you do have to wear one, wash your hands thoroughly after you remove it to avoid any infection.
