Cardinal Health has made available its Smart-Seal surgical mask that improves both its fit and reduces interior fogging while providing a high level of filtration and resistance to liquids.
From the announcement:
The Smart-Seal™ surgical mask features a patent-pending, “cinch and hug” single-tie design that creates a custom seal around the wearer’s nose and mouth. The innovative design eliminates gaps between the wearer’s face and the mask, promoting proper use and helping to reduce contamination risks in the perioperative environment.
The Smart-Seal™ surgical mask features closed-cell foam and a fog-reducing vapor barrier. It also has a large chamber with two rows of sonic bonds that help keep the mask filter away from the wearer’s face and minimize distractions.
The Smart-Seal™ surgical mask provides the highest level of fluid-resistant protection at 160mmHg. In addition, the Smart-Seal™ surgical mask meets the highest level of bacteria filtration efficiency (BFE) and particulate filtration efficiency (PFE), with BFE equaling 99.9 percent and PFE equaling 99 percent.
