Healthcare masks 2

3M delivers particulate masks in series for healthcare staffs. First we have the excellent 1860 model, a classic against tuberculosis, SARS ... With an external covering against fluids, not fit with an exhalation valve, its an universal model, even surgical rated, and should be your mask against flu. The size small is useful for women and teens. The cup form allows a long time of continuous wearing, as in MDR tuberculosis isolation wards. Easy to don, with latex free straps. Yet the breathing resistance of this mask requires training.

New models after new particulate masks are sold too, the 1861 serie. Not fluid protective, but more comfortable to wear, and packed in individual wraps.
