After the outbreak of the COVID-19, many people chose to wear a mask to go out. The demand for masks is increasing, and the industry of mask making machines has also been greatly developed. Wearing a mask seems simple, but are you really wearing it right? What kind of masks can prevent infection? How to wear a mask correctly? Today we will introduce it in detail.



1. What Are the Common Types of Masks?


Common masks include: ordinary cotton masks, disposable masks (such as medical surgical masks), and N95 masks.


What type of masks should we choose? For the purpose of self-protection and reducing the risk of respiratory infections, we can wear medical surgical masks and N95 masks. If we go to a general open-air public place and do not come in contact with patients, we can choose to wear a medical surgical mask without excessive protection, but if we will come into contact with patients with suspected respiratory tract infections, we should wear N95 masks.

3. How Do Special Groups Wear Masks?


Pregnant women who wear protective masks should pay attention to their own conditions and choose products with better comfort. Before wearing, you should consult a professional physician to confirm that your physical condition is suitable for wearing the protective masks.


The elderly and patients with chronic diseases have different physical conditions. For example, wearing protective masks will cause discomfort and even aggravate the original condition for patients with cardiopulmonary diseases. These people should seek professional guidance from a doctor.


Children are in the growth and development stage and their faces are small. It is recommended to choose child protective masks produced by regular manufacturers with professional face mask making machine.



4. How Often Does the Mask Need to Be Replaced?


In order to prevent infection, some people may wear medical masks all day long, but this will weaken the nasal mucosa, lose the original physiological function of the nasal cavity and reduce resistance. Therefore, in places with low population density and ventilation, there is no need to wear a mask.


It should be reminded that the protective effect of any type of masks is time-effective and must be replaced regularly. It is recommended to replace the mask every 2 to 4 hours. If the mask is contaminated, it should be replaced as soon as possible.


Due to the different protective effects of different masks, in order to ensure the safety of consumers, mask manufacturers need to choose professional automatic mask making machines. Common mask making machines include n95 mask making machine, surgical mask making machine, kn95 mask making machine, etc.
