An oral nose mask, also called an oral face mask, is designed to be worn during oral healthcare treatments by healthcare professionals. Oral nose masks are designed to prevent infection in healthcare workers and treating staff by capturing airborne bacteria and droplets in the mouth and nose of the wearer. These devices have been found to be successful in the treatment of a wide range of conditions, from minor irritations caused by a common cold to serious infections that can threaten the patient’s life.
There are three main components to a good face mask: the face mask itself, the ear loops that connect the mask to the body, and the mouth guard. The face mask consists of a clear vinyl mouthpiece attached to a rigid fabric head band. A plastic tube with an opening on the side allows airflow through the rigid fabric into the ear loops. The three layers of the face mask are then sewn together to cover the entire nose and mouth.
Nose and Ear Loops Face masks can be worn with or without ear loops. Some people who wear masks as a social distancing technique choose not to wear ear loops because they feel that their ears will be too visible if they wear them. This is an unreasonable reason, however, because people who choose not to wear ear loops can still clearly see the rest of the face when they are breathing and facial muscles do not contract at the same rate as when they do wear ear loops. Therefore, it is unreasonable to argue that wearing nose and ear loops provides some sort of social distancing benefit.
Face Masks With Various Stages of Fabric There are several different fabrics that face masks can be made from. Two of the most popular materials are latex and acrylic. Rubber latex is the traditional fabric that medical professionals and nurses have been using for decades. Acrylics are much newer, but they are rapidly gaining popularity for a number of reasons. The main advantage to acrylics is that they are extremely comfortable to wear; however, this comfort also masks any scent that might be associated with the wearer and they do not absorb sweat well, which is important if the person is going to be exercising.
The recommended use of a pandemic face mask during a healthcare worker’s day is to control the spread of a potentially pandemic virus or bacteria. This can be accomplished in a number of ways. The first way is through the implementation of a mass media strategy, such as television, newspaper, and viral marketing strategies such as Facebook and MySpace. These pandemic viruses can be brought out into the community through these various forms of mass communication and can then be discussed and viewed by a large number of individuals. By taking the time to discuss these pandemic viruses and how to prevent the spread of them, healthcare workers can educate the public about the need to have regular flu and cold screenings and that they should not be afraid to get the flu especially if they are dealing with small children or vulnerable elderly adults.
Another way that the cdc works is by preventing any potential transfer of the disease from one person to another. There are two different fabrics that work in this way: vinyl and polyester. Vinyl has a lower density and allows for more air to flow through it. Polyester has a higher density and allows for more resistance to the spread of the bacteria or virus.
