A) Who should be using which face mask?
Please keep in mind individuals in great health need not use a face mask if they are staying at house and not looking after any ill client.
Fabric mask-- Not preferably recommended when looking after infected clients as they do not supply appropriate protection however they are still better for regular use than not covering your mouth and nose. However, utilizing a HEPA filter with a face mask might increase its effectiveness however it results in more difficulty in breathing. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter suggests a filter that is at least 99.97% effective in removing mono-disperse particles of 0.3 micrometers in size. For the public, if a face mask is not readily available a minimum of a bandana or a headscarf may be used to cover the face.

Surgical mask-- Loose-fitting, a non reusable gadget made from polypropylene, may work in blocking particle beads, splashes, sprays which might contain bacteria, keeping them from reaching mouth and nose-- does not block little particles in the air that may be transferred by nearby coughing or sneezing.

To be used by individuals looking after sick individuals with breathing infections and symptoms as cough, sneezing and fever, and health care and frontline workers.

N95 respirator-- Not for routine usage for the basic public. It's made of polypropylene material. These respirators filter out a minimum of 95% of very little (0.3 microns) particles. These respirator masks are capable of trapping 95%, 99% and 99.9% of particles, smaller sized approximately 0.3 microns in size.
N95 FFRs are capable of straining all types of particles, consisting of bacteria and viruses. It ought to be used judiciously only. It should be worn by:

Health care and frontline workers who are addressing patients with respiratory infections as cough, cold and patients under examination.
While entering spaces of confirmed or thought COVID clients.
While getting scientific specimens, soiled medical supplies and equipment or whosoever are available in contact with possibly polluted environmental surface areas.

B) How to get rid of a used mask? (Remember masks ought to be treated as medical waste).
Various bacteria can survive on an utilized mask for various durations. Experts feel that viruses, when left exposed, can endure in between a couple of hours and a few days. My earnest request to all of you is not to throw the used mask indiscriminately in lifts, parks, workplaces, homes, open dust bins as it can position a potential health risk to people who come in contact with such masks. Also, some people are picking them up for re-use and hence putting their life in risk. The infected masks have respiratory secretions on them and can be distributed and sent through the air. So, please be delicate. Always clean your hands prior to and after taking off the mask.

Cloth mask (Wash)-- Must be cleaned correctly and regularly and delegated hang and air dry.
Surgical mask (Fold, tie, wrap)-- It should be removed chin upwards and please make sure to remove it from the strings and be cautious not to touch the front part while removing the mask. After taking the mask off, please fold it half inwards, such that droplets from mouth and nose are not exposed. Then, fold the mask into another half, till it looks like a roll. The mask can also be wrapped with its ear loops so that it will not decipher. Then cover the mask in a tissue paper or polythene bag and right away discard it in the yellow waste bag. Keep the things useful before disposing it off.

N95 respirator-- When removing the mask, hold the edge of the straps connected to take of the N95 mask. Do not touch the inside part of the respirator. Wash hands before and after it. Gently get rid of the mask so as not to disseminate pollutants on the mask. Location the mask in a plastic bag or zip-lock bag. You can likewise keep them in a breathable container such as a paper bag in between uses. Protect the bag securely. Place the plastic bag into garbage can or biomedical waste disposal system. Never ever put on a new mask until you have actually properly cleaned your hands.

C) Can we recycle or sterilize the mask?
A lot of deal with masks are non reusable and are for one-time usage only. Preferably, face masks ought to not be utilized once they are soiled or the inner lining gets wet. Rarely they can be sanitized for minimal reuse. If you wish to reuse the mask, it must be kept dry so that it can last long. While taking out the mask please do not put it under the chin so that bacteria there will not attach to the mask. Please do not leave used masks on any surface area as it will provide infection. It should be correctly saved so that it can be reused.

Reuse-- refers to the practice of using the same N95 respirator for multiple encounters with clients however removing it after each encounter. It's stored in between encounters to be put on again.
Fabric mask-- Can be correctly cleaned, sanitized, dried and recycled.

Surgical mask-- If it's dry and the layers and shape are intact, put it in a zip lock pouch with a desiccated gel. The gel absorbs moisture and keeps the mask dry. If the mask is intact and not torn, it can be recycled for 3 days. If it's used by an infected individual, it must never ever be recycled or shared.

N95 respirator-- When you are not utilizing it, please shop it in a closed plastic container and get rid of and regularly clean the storage containers. When recycling the N95 respirator, leave an utilized mask in the dry environment for 3-4 days to dry it out. Polypropylene in N95 is hydrophobic and contains no moisture. COVID-19 requires a host to survive-- it can endure on a metal surface area for approximately 48 hours, on plastic for 72 hours and on cardboard for 72 hours. If the respirator is dry for 3-4 hours, the virus would not have actually made it through. Best is to use four N95 masks and number them 1-4. On day 1 usage mask 1, then let it dry for 3-4 days. On day 2 use mask 2 and then let it dry for 3-4 days. Same for Day 3 and Day 4. Another approach is to disinfect the N95 mask by hanging it in the oven (without getting in touch with metal) at 70 degrees C for 30 min. Or use a wood clip to hang the respirator in the kitchen oven. N95 masks are deteriorated by UV light so keep them away from UV light or sunlight. Label the string of the mask with your name so that nobody else uses it. Follow the standards offered by the producer or utilize it optimal as much as 5 times.

D) What are the recommendations for the extended use of N95 respirators?
If the materials are limited as in a pandemic situation, the user can be reached protect healthcare workers from the risk of infection. Extended use refers to the practice of wearing the same N95 respirator for duplicated close contact encounters with a number of clients, without getting rid of the respirator between patient encounters. Extended use may be carried out when several clients are contaminated with the same breathing pathogen and patients are put together in dedicated waiting rooms or medical facility wards. Research studies have actually revealed that respirators can function within their style specs for 8 hours of constant or periodic usage.

E) When to dispose of the N95 respirator?
Discard N95 respirators following use throughout aerosol-generating treatments.
Dispose of masks polluted with blood, respiratory or nasal secretions, or other physical fluids from clients.
Following close contact with any client co-infected with a transmittable disease needing contact safety measures.
Consider using a cleanable face guard over N95 when possible to reduce surface contamination of the respirator.
Use a set of clean gloves when wearing a used N95 respirator and carrying out a user seal check. Discard the gloves after usage appropriately.
