The 3M N95 respirator unique design fits most face sizes and headshapes allowing standardization to a single respirator for use in the OR, for patient care and throughout the rest of the healthcare facility.
NIOSH - certified N95 respirator. High fluid resistant masks pass ASTM highest level of 160mm Hg for fluid and splash resistance.
* NIOSH approved as a Type N95 respirator to meet OSHA requirements and CDC guidelines for TB exposure control. Tests conducted by NIOSH in accordance with 42 CFR 84.
* The 3M 95 respirator can be used during laser surgery, electrocautery and other procedures using powered medical instruments to help reduce wearer exposure to airborne particulates(plume, smoke) generated during these procedures.
* >99% BFE* to help reduce patient contamination caused by exhaled microorganisms.
* 3M offers training materials and services to help meet OSHA training regulations for the use of their N95 respirators.

* The 1860 is available in regular (1860) and small sizes (1860S) to fit a variety of face shapes and sizes.
* The 1870 fits most face sizes and head shapes, allowing standardization to a single respirator for use in the facility.
* Both styles of respirators are NIOSH certified tested against a 0.3 micron particle (mass median aerodynamic diameter) per 42 CFR 84.
FDA has authorized emergency use of these respirators by the general public.
Below is important information from the FDA regarding disposable respirator masks.
What products does this information apply to?
This fact sheet applies only to the disposable respirators listed in this table. The manufacturer name and model number is printed directly on these products. FDA has authorized emergency use of these respirators by the general public during the current swine flu emergency to help reduce exposure to airborne germs.
What are the benefits of these respirators?
FDA has authorized use of these respirators by the general public during this public health emergency. These respirators are designed to filter out germs that may be present in the air you breathe. They may help reduce your risk of getting sick. They are designed to fit tightly over your mouth and nose, with no gaps. Any gaps will allow air to pass around and reach your nose, mouth, and lungs without being filtered.
These respirators do not eliminate the risk of disease, illness, or death. The effectiveness of these respirators depends on tight fit to your face. Because no respirator provides complete protection against infection, you should always practice other infection control measures such as frequent hand washing, social distancing, and avoiding crowded places. For more information, see www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm.
When should I wear the respirator?
For updated public health recommendations about when and where to use respirators during the swine flu emergency, please refer to www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu.
What are the risks of these respirators?
* Individuals with chronic respiratory, cardiac, or other conditions that make it harder to breathe may have difficulty breathing through the respirator, please consult your healthcare provider (doctor) before use.
* Respirators were not designed to fit children. Children's faces may be too small for the respirators to fit properly and provide protection. Children may have difficulty breathing with use of respirators and may not be able to let others know if they are having trouble breathing.
* Some of these respirators may be flammable; use caution around heat sources and do not smoke while wearing the respirator.
* May cause skin irritation; those with latex allergies should avoid Moldex Models 2200 and 2201 and choose another model.
* Spit, blood, or other bodily fluids may get through the following models of respirators: 3M Models 8210, 8000, & 9210; Moldex Models 2200, 2212, and 2201.
If you are using a respirator at work, talk to your employer about how to wear and use it. When using it at home or elsewhere, follow these instructions.
* Inspect the respirator for holes, tears or other damages to surfaces, straps, metal nose strip, and nose foam. If your respirator has been damaged DO NOT USE IT. Get a new one.
* Anything that comes between the respirator and your face will make the respirator less effective. Do not allow facial hair, hair, jewelry, glasses, or clothing to come between your face and the respirator.
* Put the respirator on correctly:
1. Prestretch the strap(s) before placing respirator on the face.
2. If your respirator is folded, unfold it fully.
3. Cup the respirator in your hand, with the nosepiece at your fingertips, allowing the headbands to hang freely below your hand.
4. Position the respirator under your chin with the nosepiece up. If there are two straps, pull the top strap over your head, resting it high at the top back of your head. Pull the bottom strap over your head and position it around the neck and below the ears. If there is only 1 strap, it should rest high at the back of your head. Make sure that your mouth and nose are covered by the respirator and that the bottom of the respirator fits underneath the chin. Looking in the mirror may help in positioning the respirator on your face.
5. Place your fingertips from both hands at the top of the metal nosepiece. For those respirators without a metal nosepiece, no adjustment is possible. Using both hands, mold the nose area to the shape of your nose by pushing inward towards the nose, while moving your fingertips down both sides of the nosepiece. Pinching the nosepiece using one hand may result in improper fit and less effective respirator performance. Use two hands.
6. Always check your fit when you wear a respirator. There are two steps to assessing the fit. First, place both hands completely over the respirator, then take a quick breath in to check whether the respirator seals tightly to the face. Next, place both hands completely over the respirator and exhale. Be careful not to disturb the position of the respirator. If during either step, air leaks around the nose, readjust the nosepiece as described in step 5. If air leaks at the mask edges, work the straps back along the sides of your head.
7. If you cannot achieve a proper fit and seal, ask for help from someone else or try a different respirator model. Different models of respirators may fit faces differently.
For additional information on how to use the respirator, refer to www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/eua.
* How do I remove and dispose of my respirator?
Additional information you should know before using these respirators:
* Respirators should be changed when they become wet from spit or mucus, as they may be damaged.
* These respirators are designed for single use. Do not re-use the respirator.
* Never wash or disinfect these respirators.
* Never share these respirators with others.
* If the respirator becomes damaged, soiled, or breathing becomes difficult, replace the respirator.
