Medical mask is a unique means of individual protection of the skin of the face and respiratory organs from various small particles. They are most often used to prevent infection with viruses and bacteria that are transmitted from a sick person to a healthy person by airborne droplets. However, many studies have confirmed that the most effective wearing of medical masks is not by those who are still healthy and do not want to get sick, but by those who are already a potential carrier of infection.
In addition, medical masks are used to protect the face and respiratory organs during various manipulations, procedures and surgical interventions by hospital and polyclinic staff. Surgical masks differ from conventional disposable protective masks that are used by ordinary people both in appearance and in their properties.
