BARRIER® Surgical Mask Standard

Standard surgical masks: Effective protection with high comfort

The BARRIER® Surgical Mask Standard assortment consists of surgical masks with high filtration capacity and low breathing resistance. The surgical masks in this assortment are proposed for use during dry surgery, when there is no risk of splashes. These masks are classified as type II in the EN14683 European standard surgical masks.

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

Clear evidence for use of mask in clean air 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 rooms1.
