In the COVID-19 era, personal protection equipment (PPE) is needed now more than ever. These essential pieces of equipment help protect frontline healthcare workers from the dangers of the virus, as well as other hazards of the healthcare field.
Face Shields Cover The Whole Face
Face shields, as the name implies, cover the whole face of the wearer to protect them from particulates and droplets. Because the shields are made from plastic bacteria and viruses cannot reach the eyes, nose, or mouth of the wearer. This device is designed to prevent you from being infected by those around you.
Face Masks Cover The Mouth & Nose
Face masks are a very common sight in doctor’s offices and in public. These cloth or paper devices cover the mouth and nose, but do not cover the eyes. Anyone leaving their homes to go out to shop or work should wear a mask to protect themselves and others, especially those at higher risk of severe illness, such as the elderly and immunocompromised. Face masks protect others from the germs you are carrying.
Wear Face Masks & Face Shields Together For Greater Protection
For the best overall protection face masks and face shields should be worn together. This combination protects the wearer from both spreading and contracting viruses. inx Medical has stepped up during this crisis to meet the needs of the medical community by manufacturing face shields compliant with ANSI/ISEA Z87.1 – 2010.
