SARS necessitates medical masks

The N95 mask is in demand once again. In the past this mask has been well tested whenever there has been need to protect our lungs from airborne infection. During all the previous instances around the world for example the world trade center tragedy and during the anthrax danger this mask was used. SARS or severe acute respiratory syndrome, the new viral disease N95 is the safest mask to use to protect against infection..

Hoarding of masks due to fear of shortage during this SARS crisis is being reported. In some places the masks are being very carefully rationed because of actual shortage.

Most of the people do not follow the exact guidelines that are required when wearing the mask. In a real health care environment people are given training; however customers obviously do not have that same sense of awareness. Some studies have found that if the masks are ill fitting people hesitate to turn up to their work place . When the mask has to be discarded , it is found that most people reuse it . This practice can be counterproductive. With the outbreak of SARS in Asia there is a need to learn how to use masks effectively to protect oneself. The N95 mask is once again being used widely as it has a good track record.
