The Best Way to Prevent Getting COVID - *NEW* Respokare® N95 Respirator Mask

The Best Way to Prevent Getting COVID - *NEW* Respokare® N95 Respirator Mask
(Personal Protective Equipment)

There is a brand new N95 respirator mask that is NOW available to the public. It’s also a lot more comfortable compared to other N95 masks, and also has the added benefit of inactivating viral and bacterial proteins.

Here is the link: (N95 Respirator Mask)


The TRUTH of How Coronavirus Spreads and How to Prevent Coronavirus:
Watch Now:

How can you prevent inhaling the virus? The best thing you can do to prevent inhaling the virus into your lungs…Is to wear an N95 mask or an elastomeric mask. N95 respirators are tight-fitting and filter out at least 95% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. But, the CDC recommends the public not to purchase these, and not to wear these.

And there are multiple reasons for that. These n95 masks (respiratory protection) are being reserved for health care workers. And Amazon will not sell them right now. They’re also uncomfortable, and your voice gets muffled, or make you feel smothered. It partially obstructs airflow in and out of your mouth and nostrils, so if you have an underlying lung condition, like COPD emphysema, probably not something you can tolerate for very long. Also, these have to fit properly on your face to be effective, and in order to do so, you can’t have most types of facial hair, because that can disrupt a good seal of the mask. An elastomeric respirator is a reusable device with exchangeable cartridge filters. Like an N95 respirator, it also filters out at least 95% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. It fits tight against the user's face but is more comfortable than an N95. Before reusing the mask, all its surfaces need to be wiped down with a disinfectant.

So although both of these are not perfect, they are very effective at preventing inhalation of the virus. So these are the best way to prevent inhaling coronavirus, as well as other viruses like influenza and measles, but wearing these is not necessarily a practical thing to do. But, then, just last week, another doctor saw my video on airborne transmission, and messaged me on Instagram, asking me if I heard about this new Respokare® NIOSH N95 mask. And so I looked it up online and did a bunch of research on it. The company that makes the mask is Innonix. At first, I thought this would be some sort of gimmicky mask, but I was wrong.

I was impressed enough to reach out to them and ask if I could review the mask and possibly make a video about it, and they sent me a few samples, and here we are. Just like a regular N95, such as this one that we use in the hospital, made by the company 3M (3M n95 mask), this mask will filter out particles as small as 0.3 microns. It’s also listed on the CDC’s website of NIOSH-Approved N95 Respirators. It’s also FDA approved. So what sets this mask apart from a regular N95 mask? Several things, actually. For one, it's much more comfortable to wear. You’ve probably seen pictures of health care workers with marks and lines and even bruising on their faces as a result of wearing N95s. And from my personal experience, they’re just not comfortable, especially for more than an hour or two of use. The company also claims that it can “inactivate up to 99.9% of particles within minutes,” So not only trapping viruses and bacteria but destroying them too.
This new KN95 Respokare mask has 4 layers, and the innermost layer is built of soft materials to ensure comfort during periods of long-wear, and is also water-resistant, which is also nice.

On top of that are 3 more layers, that serve to not only trap fine particles, but one of the layers contains copper and zinc ions which serve to destruct viruses and bacteria. Also, the outermost layer has an acidic coating, creating a low pH environment, which helps to destroy viral and bacterial proteins. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any published evidence of this in a medical journal. They also show tables of which viruses and bacteria become activated with a few minutes. So this includes not only coronavirus, but also other viruses and bacteria that can become airborne, like influenza, measles, and some bacteria like tuberculosis, and also helps to prevent inhaling allergens, and pollution. So this is something I am going to buy more of, not only for myself, my friends and family. Also, if you are around other people, don’t forget to protect your eyes with goggles, or glasses that don’t let air in. And try not to touch your face or mask without having clean hands.

What's the best face mask to fight COVID-19?

N95 Disposable Filtering Facepiece Respirator: Donning & Doffing

In this video we demonstrate the critical safety steps involved in correctly donning and doffing an N95 disposable filtering facepiece respirator, and how to perform a seal check prior to rendering patient care in any setting. We also show the most common mistakes made when placing the straps on your head.

In the early phases of a novel infection, airborne protection is commonly used. In order to protect first responders and healthcare providers from exposure to airborne and novel pathogens, the correct use of an N95 respirator is an important first step.

Disinfecting N95 masks for reuse during COVID-19 pandemic

What is the best way to disinfect an N95 mask? With a shortage of masks during the COVID-19 pandemic, doctors need to know if masks can be cleaned and still remain effective at blocking coronavirus particles

University of Michigan engineers and clinicians are working quickly to address the shortage of these masks by developing efficient, effective and scalable ways of disinfecting masks, which are typically discarded after one use.

Krista Wigginton, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, and Nancy Love, the Borchardt and Glysson Collegiate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, are working together to specifically test the best way to treat N95 masks, exploring the use of ultraviolet light, wet heat and hydrogen peroxide. The team also includes Lutgarde Raskin, Lucinda Li, Nicole Rockey, Peter Arts and Katherine Harrison.




Another team at U-M is figuring out how many times these masks can be treated while still effectively stopping coronavirus-scale particles:

The overall effort is a result of a partnership between the College of Engineering and Michigan Medicine to identify problems and assign U-M engineers to address them. Deactivating viruses on N95 masks is among the first, most-pressing issues doctors on this U-M COVID-19 Rapid Reaction Steering Committee identified.

With coronavirus, we’ve learned a lot of new words and phrases like social distancing, respiratory droplets, and of course, the now infamous N95, but what about its less known counterpart, the KN95?

Most of the information out there on KN95’s could best be described as a vast gray area. So when it comes to choosing between the N95 and KN95 for COVID-19 protection, how do know which is the best to use?

Hi, I’m Rachel Walla with Ally Safety and in today’s video, we are going to clearly and simply outline the differences between the N95 and kN95, so you can make the best decision for yourself and your workplace.

In the US, the N95 was developed to be a single use respirator. Some are suited for industrial environments and others for healthcare environments.

The is a KN95 mask was developed for similar purposes as the N95 and also undergoes similar testing. However, the N95 is the American standard that is certified by NIOSH, the KN95 is the Chinese equivalent to the N95 but has some differences.

N95 VS SURGICAL MASKS | The differences, filtration, efficacy, approval, and COVID-19.

With all the information on N95 VS surgical masks out there right now, it can be difficult to know what face masks to use and when.

N95 VS SURGICAL MASKS

Can wearing a face mask protect you from the new coronavirus (COVID-19)?

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is on-going: therefore, world health organizations say to stay informed and follow their recommendations.

Conserving PPE by Decontaminating N95 Masks

Based on existing evidence and guidance from Ontario Health, Trillium Health Partners is decontaminating and storing N95 masks as part of our personal protective equipment (PPE) conservation plan to make sure that a safe supply of PPE is always immediately available. We will only use decontaminated N95 masks if our current supply is depleted and no other option is available.

N95 Respirator Limited Reuse - Healthcare Professionals Providing Clinical Care

In this video we demonstrate potential approaches for donning and doffing of an N95 filtering facepiece respirator in a Limited Reuse situation. This video was developed based on the CDC guidelines for NIOSH approved N95 respirators.

*****************************************************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE: During this extraordinary time of the COVID-19 pandemic, institutions are developing methods to extend wear and reuse N95 respirators. These methods are needed in order to preserve the supply of N95 respirators for patient care. The information in this video should not be interpreted to contradict facility-specific directions and special decontamination and reuse programs.

Do face masks always protect their wearer from COVID-19?

Dr. Andrew French, Chief Medical Officer for Centura Health’s St. Anthony North Health Campus, says even a simple cloth face covering is an extremely effective way to protect others from contracting COVID-19.

What is an N95 Mask Used For? | Coronavirus, history, use, respirators & surgical masks.

With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing the N95 mask into the spotlight this year, many people are asking what is an N95 mask and what is an N95 mask used for? In this video we'll take a look at what an N95 is, how they were originally designed to be used, how they became used in the medical field, and how this all applies to the coronavirus pandemic.

With historic PPE shortages and the sudden difficulty in acquiring supplies, it can be difficult to know what type of masks are right to use in certain situations. The information in the video will help to guide your decisions.

N95’s work by filtering particulate through the tiny pores found in the fabric. The 95 in the name N95 means it filters at least 95% of airborne particles. Note N95 doesn’t provide protection against gases or vapors, but dusts, fumes, mists, smoke, and aerosols.

We hope this video helps you answer the question, what is an N95 mask is used for?

Thanks so much for watching!

Beware of Fake N95 Masks, Govt Says They May be Detrimental to Health | COVID-19 Updates

Across the globe, more than 2 lakh new COVID-19 infections are being added every day. In view of this, many efforts are underway to stop the contagion. One of the efforts is that – the WHO has mandated the use of face masks. Experts have also recommended that countries follow a universal masking policy to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. The Indian government has also made the use of N95 masks mandatory in public places. Last week, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare issued a notice warning against the use of N95 masks with valves. The advisory stated that using N95 masks with valves can defeat the purpose. While the valves filter the air that is inhaled into the mask, they don’t filter the air that exhaled out of the mask. So if the virus enters a person’s respiratory pathway and the person exhales it into the mask, the valves will then toss it out into the air without filtering it. Watch the video to learn more.
