BARRIER® surgical mask Special
Breathe easily with high filtration
The BARRIER® surgical mask Special assortment has high filtration capacity while retaining low breathing resistance and is classified as type II in the EN 14683: 2005 surgical masks – requirements and test methods, Annex A (informative). It is proposed for use during dry surgery, when there is no risk of splashes. The masks have extra features like the “cup keeper”, a device to create distance to the mouth and thereby greater comfort. The assortment also offers various other features such as anti-reflection, anti-fog, visors, extra softness and extra width.

Low breathing resistance makes it easier to breathe and is more comfortable over long periods

High level of bacterial filtration efficiency reduces the spread of bacteria to the air in the operating room

A wall mounted dispenser system allows easy installation and convenient access for staff as masks are required

Feature symbols are clearly indicated on every BARRIER surgical mask dispenser, which enables the user to choose an appropriate mask

Clear evidence for use of mask in operating rooms

Bacterial shedding, wound contamination and clinical infection rates in clean wounds are influenced by staff clothing in the operating room. This was shown in a study performed in the UK, with the aim of clarifying the relative contribution of headwear, masks and clothing to the control of wound contamination in both ultraclean and conventional airflow operating rooms. The study concludes that headwear, masks and clothing with elastic cuffs should be worn by all staff in ultraclean-air operating rooms.
