Medicinal Applications

The requirements concerning protection measures, comfort and 4productivity in industrial settings often by far exceed those of the healthcare industry.

The current dire state of emergency has given more reason than ever to rely on effective PPE. Currently, improved protection is particularly essential in the field of medicine. It has become a matter of life and death to protect health workers from droplet transmissions of the infectious viral disease. Many infectious pathogens manifest through the spread of respiratory secretions. Infectious drops are released by sneezing, coughing, speaking or singing and can be transmitted directly from one person to another or stick to surfaces.

Furthermore, droplets are spread through aerosolgenerating examinations and treatment methods. Specifically, during dental activities, sputum induction, bronchoscopy, medical intubation, ventilation, resuscitation or as an aerosol of technical procedures.

The leading protection standard during times of Covid-19.

Optrel Respiratory protection systems are certified according to TH3 (EN 12941) and correspond to the highest respiratory protection class. They are adept to filter air and remove 99.8% of harmful solid and fluid particles providing for clean and purified inhalation.

Infectious viruses and bacteria that are transmitted through the air, e.g. Droplet infections are effectually evaded. 

In comparison to the protection class’ best, the half mask (FFP3), safety of the user‘s airways is increased by a factor of 10 or even by a factor of 40 (when using FFP2 masks).

This system protects medicinal and laboratory personnel much better against infections.
