1. Be sure to do relevant inspections before wearing protective clothing, and do not act on your own experience. Pay attention to check the integrity of the protective clothing, such as whether the surface is contaminated, whether there are cracks in the stitches, or whether there are sharp objects on the body, etc., so as to avoid damage to the protective clothing during work and affect the protective function.

3. Wear medical protective masks to check the air tightness.

Positive pressure test: Cover the mask with both hands and exhale vigorously. If air escapes from the edge of the mask, it is improperly worn, and the headband and metal strip on the bridge of the nose must be adjusted again.

Negative pressure test: Cover the mask with both hands and inhale vigorously. If the center of the mask sinks, if air enters from the edge of the mask, it means that it is improperly worn. The headband and the metal strip of the bridge of the nose must be adjusted again.

For example: Wear an N95 Mask first, and then add a layer of surgical mask.

It seems that this protection is more rigorous, but in fact this may be more risky. Stacking so many layers of masks on the other hand increases the gap between the masks, affecting airtightness and reducing the protective effect. Because the number of layers of masks worn is too thick, it increases the resistance to breathing. When medical staff increase their breathing strength, it may affect the fit of the mask, which may bring risks.
