An elastic surgical mask, also called a nasal mask, is designed to be worn by medical professionals during various healthcare operations. Most surgical masks are used during surgeries to prevent infection from entering the patient’s body and infecting personnel and patients by capturing airborne bacteria and droplets from the patient’s mouth and nose. This protective equipment is also used during blood transfusion, and in emergency breathing apparatus, such as CPR. The protective mask is also used during emergency operations to prevent the airway from being damaged by foreign matter entering the body, such as when a sufferer of asthma attempts to breath in a tube or other apparatus.
Different types of face masks are available based on the patient’s skin type and the operation. Some masks are suitable for certain procedures, while others may not be appropriate for certain conditions. This is because different types of face masks have different functions. Nasal masks should be worn during bronchodilator or respiratory treatment. This will prevent the patient from breathing in any airborne germs that may enter the airway while the patient sleeps.
Face cloth masks, on the other hand, are commonly used during bleaching, cleaning and threading of hair, as well as during tattooing and hair removal. Face cloth masks are best suited for all these jobs because they prevent the skin from becoming moist and the possibility of contamination by airborne bacteria. However, the cloth mask traps the dust and may cause allergic reactions to the person wearing it. People with oily skin should use oil-free face masks to avoid aggravating their condition.
Throat sprays are another type of face mask. These devices allow people to breathe through their nose rather than via their mouth, similar to a nose clip. They are placed over or under the nose to expand the nasal passages and provide enough space for easy breathing. The most common type of throat spray is the saline solution misted into the nostrils. There are also gas-permeable sprays that you can attach to your finger and carried around with you.
If you are trying to social Distancing yourself from others and want to make a good impression, a good face mask is a must-have. Aside from keeping your skin dry, these masks also serve as a way to add an extra layer of protection for your lungs and sinuses. Some even go so far as to include breathing apparatus in them to better circulate the air within the mask. Some masks also include exhalation valves that open at the right times to allow people to exhale for a better (and more sanitary) inhale.
These masks work best on people with a dry skin type. It would also be advisable to choose a mask that is meant for your face type. There are masks designed for nose, lips, eyebrows, temples, and cheeks, among other areas. It is important to use one that compliments your natural features to avoid looking unnatural or simply ruining your makeup routine by not choosing the right skin mask. In addition, if you wear glasses or have a large forehead, it is advisable to use the appropriate face mask to draw attention to those areas.
