Difference between medical and non-medical face masks
The difference between medical and non-medical masks lies in their function. While a non-medical mask is primarily worn to protect the wearer's environment, a medical mask is worn to protect the wearer from airborne germs. They are therefore also used in hospitals to prevent contamination.
How do I put on an FFP2 mask?
When putting on a medical mask, it is important that you first disinfect your hands with a disinfectant hand gel. Then hold the mask in one hand and the rubber bands in the other. Place the FFP2 mask under your chin and, with the other hand, pull the rubber bands up to your crown. Then place the bottom elastic band under the ears and position the top of the mask just below the bridge of your nose. Finally, check that the mask fits snugly around your face and adjust if necessary.
Instructions for FFP2 Face masks
As with our other mouth masks, such as the disposable face masks or the fabric face masks, it is important to avoid touching the outside / front as much as possible when wearing a medical facemask. The outside of a face mask can be contaminated with viruses and other germs when worn. If you touch the outside of the mask, these germs can end up on your hands and you could end up infecting yourself.
What should I do with a used medical mask?
Nobraa FFP2 masks are for single use only and cannot be washed. When you are finished wearing your FFP2 mask, take it off by grasping the ear loops and pulling the mask over your head. Then dispose of the mask in the waste bin and immediately disinfect your hands with disinfectant hand gel or soap and water.
