									 The use of disposable masks , is a measure of security and safety important for health
personnel, as pollution reduces the risk of both environmental, such as exposure to
contact with body fluids that may be pathogenic.


There are different types of masks , all applied for the same purpose, as Dr. Daniel
J. Sanchez Silva explains, the use of the Mask " protectedfrom possible contamination
with saliva, blood or vomit, which could leave the patient and fall into the oral and nasal
cavity of the worker. "One of the most common type is the disposable mask , that
responds to specific usage guidelines.


The disposable masks can not be washed, or refuse or shared under any
circumstances. The material they are made can be both cloth and paper and parts of it
that have to be in contact with the face should be soft. Being in contact with the mouth
and nose, covering a sensitive area, must have realized that as Red says Dr Michel
Toledano in Biosafety manual for dental services that "in the surgical procedures the
surface of the mask must material be considered contaminated and should be avoided
contact even with gloved hands. "
As for the duration of effective use of disposable masks will depend on several factors,
such as pollution levels, respiration rate, heat or moisture.


Within the group of disposable masks , are not only the masks of protection against
splashes or microorganisms, but also disposable respirators, which clean the air as you
breathe and avoid inhalation of irritants or contaminants. There are also specialized
disposable masks with special characteristics against communicable diseases, organic
and chemical fumes or odors.


You should choose the disposable mask suitable for each task, and bound by the
conditions of use, to ensure the elimination of risks againstpollutants and protect the
health of health workers and their patients.
