3M Health Care understands your need for high quality surgical masks and respirators that help reduce exposure of the patient and healthcare professional to potential infectious airborne particulate hazards.
The right choice of personal protective equipment (PPE) is critical. 3M™ health care respirators are CE marked to EC Directive 89/686 (and additionally comply with the Medical Devices Directive). They can help protect against airborne micro-organisms such as mycobacterium tuberculosis.
With the changing nature of healthcare today, concern for you and the protection of your patients is paramount. 3M™ surgical masks are designed to capture micro-organisms in the exhaled breath of healthcare professionals in order to protect the patient against the risk of infection.
