The Outdoor Research Surgical Mask is intended to be used by operating room personnel during surgical procedures to reduce transmission of and exposure to certain microorganisms, airborne particles and liquids. It is a loose-fitting device worn over the user’s nose and mouth that creates a physical barrier from potential contaminants in the immediate environment and may be use to protect the sterile field. This device alone does not offer protection to the eyes or rest of face. Surgical masks are not intended to be used more than once and are disposable. If the mask is damaged or soiled, or if breathing through the mask becomes difficult, it should be removed, discarded of safely, and replaced.
Thoroughly inspect the surgical mask prior to use. If any components, including the filter material, the elastic earloops, or the nosepiece are damaged or missing, do not use and dispose of properly. Damage may include missing components, tears or holes in the filter material, or other issues which noticeably have a negative effect on performance.
Immediately leave the contaminated area and seek help if dizziness, difficulty breathing, or other deleterious conditions arise.
This is a single use surgical mask. It may be used until it becomes difficult to breathe through, damaged, or is thought to be contaminated in any way. In a healthcare setting, it should be discarded after each examination or procedure. Given the Public Health Emergency PPE shortage, follow current government and facility guidance and regulations.
Given current CDC guidance, it is recommended that this product is not for use by the general public in order to ensure supply for healthcare workers.
A surgical mask is not intended to replace a surgical respirator and does not protect against pathogenic biological airborne particles. This device should not be used in aerosol generating procedures or any clinical conditions where the risk of infection through inhalation exposure is high.
Pull the earloops to the outside of the mask.
With the wire nosepiece up, and downward-facing pleats outward, pull the elastic earloops behind the ears. The mask should be secure over the nose and mouth.
Press the nosepiece so it conforms to the bridge of the nose and pull the mask down to wrap under the chin.
Without touching the surgical mask filter media, remove the earloops from behind the ears and the mask from the face. Be mindful not to the touch face or mask filter as hands may be contaminated. Dispose or store in accordance with current government and facility guidance and regulations.
