Next, Zhejiang Anpusen medical mask manufacturer
will teach you how to use N95 protective masks correctly：
1. Wash your hands
It is best to put on your N95 face shield with clean, dry hands.
2. Check your N95 face shield
Always check that N95 face shields are intact before use. Do not use if visibly damaged, dirty or wet.
3. Wear an N95 protective mask
Hold the N95 protective mask and place your fingertips on the nose fixing strip (or fixing foam). If your face shield does not have a nose strap, use the text above to make sure your fingertips are on the top.
Place the N95 respirator under the chin with the nose strap facing up.
Pull the top head strap over the head and secure it to the top of the head. Then pull the lower head strap over the back of the neck, below the height of the ears. Do not cross the straps. Make sure the straps are flat and not twisted.
Place the tips of your fingers over the nose rail. Press the sides of the nose strip to conform to the shape of your nose.
4. Keep the N95 protective mask wrapped
Your N95 face shield must be sealed against the face to function properly. You must breathe through the N95 respirator and not through the gaps in its edges. Gestures, glasses, and facial hair can all cause gaps to form between your face and the edge of the mask. The N95 will work better if you have clean shaved facial hair. Gaps can also appear if your N95 is too big, too small, or not properly fitted.
To check for gaps, gently place your hand on the N95 respirator, covering it as much as possible, and exhale. If you feel air leaking from the edge of the N95, or if the eyes you are wearing are fogging up, it is not wrapped. Adjust the N95 face shield and try again.
If you can't get a tight wrap, try a different size or type. Even if you can't fit the N95 tightly against your face, it will still provide better protection than a cloth mask. Check for gaps every time you put on an N95 respirator.
5. Take off the N95 protective mask
After removing the N95 mask, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol if soap is not available.
6. How to replace the N95 protective mask
Do not wash N95 respirators or sterilize them in an oven or microwave. Replace the N95 face shield when the head restraint has lost its elasticity and no longer wraps around the face, or when it is wet, dirty, or damaged. Then throw in the trash.
