New Mask Study Supports CDC's Updated Guidance for Seasonal Flu Prevention Strategies

devices," said Gary Steinberg, CEO of Crosstex International.  "It was clear that medical face masks were being narrowly compared to N95 respirators for their ability to protect the wearer from the outside-in.  We wanted to better understand the value of medical face masks for source control, that is, protecting others from the inside-out," said Matt Conlon, Vice President at Cantel Medical.  While medical face masks are commonly referred to as "PPE" (Personal Protection Equipment), their original purpose was to protect the patient from acquiring an infection from the physician.  This new research is the first to quantify their important role in controlling the infection at the source and further demonstrated that a tighter fitting medical mask performs best in source control.  

The findings come in the wake of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic when there were significant complications, shortages, and debate surrounding the CDC's formal recommendation for the use of N95's by healthcare workers for protection against the H1N1 virus. Steinberg said, "This shows an exponential infection control benefit at a fraction of the cost and complexity of using N95 respirators.  As one of the few remaining U.S. manufacturers of medical masks, it is important for Crosstex to continue funding this type of independent research to address infectious disease threats through continued mask innovation. We don't overlook the fact that masks are medical devices.  We understand they can save lives and dramatically reduce costs associated with respiratory-borne infections."
