It is a fluid-resistant, disposable device intended to be placed over the nose and mouth of medical personnel or patients who are infected or displaying symptoms, to create a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and prevent the transmission of airborne organisms during surgery or patient examination. Surgical masks are graded as level 1, 2 or 3 based on the level of protection provided, or fluid resistance.
 
Instructions:

1.  Fit over nose and mouth, place ear loops on your ears.

2. Fix nose bar on the nose.

3. Hold lower edge, pull mask under the jaw. 

 

Why is TGA approval important?

Facemasks that are specifically intended to be used to reduce the risk of transmission of pathogens between people in a health setting are required to be included on the ARTG prior to their importation and supply. All facemasks that are currently included on the ARTG are single use items that are not intended for reprocessing to make suitable for re-use. Facemasks cannot be guaranteed to have the same risk profile for children or people with facial hair.

Surgical masks are single use, fluid-resistant, disposable, and loose-fitting protection devices that create a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and the immediate environment but do not achieve a close seal to the wearer's face. When used, surgical masks should cover both the mouth and the nose, and be secured using the ear loops or ties at the back of the head. Surgical masks have different grades of filtration and are useful for blocking splashes and large particle droplets or sprays which may occur. They do not provide complete protection from germs and other small particle contaminants.
