Understanding Mask Differences Pt. 1: The N95 Mask

Due, to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with several Government entities, are now not just suggesting but actually requiring all of their citizens to use a mask as a precautionary protective measure against the virus. As such, and with so many options to choose from when it comes to the vague item that is “masks”, one can’t help but be confused as to knowing which one is best for everyday life’s “new norm”.

In this three-part article set, Healthbot Care explains which masks clinicians and first responders actually use and which ones normal civilians would need. Defining and being knowledgeable about the differences from what someone should use is greatly helpful when deciding which type of mask to take on, say trips to the grocery store, and which ones to use when going to hotbed hospitals.

The first class of mask we will be discussing is the gold-standard: the N95 mask. Learn how it’s different from a surgical mask and/or cloth mask in terms of safety and security:

The N95, or NIOSH 95 mask, is technically considered to be more of a respirator than just a face covering. Their term was coined for the innate ability of a mask specifically designed to filter 95% of all non-oil based particles in the whole of any environment using specialized static electricity. This is the best kind of mask any wearer should look for to fighting against the coronavirus but to ensure their safety, effectiveness and efficacy, make sure to only buy N95 masks that are tested and approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

This is the same type of mask that Healthbot Care, a Healthcare Industry Pioneer, wishes for your support to create with the initiative of helping to provide more protective masks to healthworkers and frontliners in dire need of them by designing an easily washable, reusable and cost-efficient alternative to disposable surgical masks and expensive N99 masks.

In an effort to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, you can help us create an innovative and state-of-the-art N95 mask by pledging any amount. We understand that a lot of people have been hit hard by the economic problems caused by coronavirus so if you’re not in a position to donate, please help share it. Thank you very much for your kind consideration.
