Your mask is the front line of facial protection. Understanding ASTM surgical and procedure mask standards can help you make more informed choices when selecting your next mask. Help keep clinicians and patients safe from harmful exposure. Ensure your facial protection fits ASTM standards.
Surgical and procedure masks are governed by a set of standards and test methods for material performance. ASTM International has been long-held as one of the standards for the testing of face masks by the FDA.
In this webinar, Angela Maxwell RN discusses what ASTM is, the definition of the barrier protection levels, how the risk of infection exposure is real and that most people choose the wrong level of protection. Angela will also provide guidance with four steps to choose the correct mask.
