3M Mask Respirator N95 P2 3-Panel Flat Mask with Fluid Resistance

The 1870+ particulate respirator is a personal protective equipment (PPE) that is primarily intended to protect the health care workers by reducing exposure to harmful airborne particles which are small enough to be inhaled typically particles less than 100 microns in size. These include airborne particles that may contain biological material e.g. Bacillus anthracis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, mould and the virus that causes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), and Influenza.

How is a respirator different from a surgical mask?

Surgical masks are designed to help reduce patient or health care worker exposures from wearer-generated microorganisms. Fluid resistant masks also help reduce potential exposure of the wearer to blood and body fluids.
Respirators are designed to help protect the wearer from certain airborne contaminants. They also have a snug fit around the face to help avoid leaks where contaminants may enter. Most surgical masks do not have the same filtering capability and typically do not have the same snug fit and, consequently, cannot replace respirators in helping provide respiratory protection. The 1860 and 1870 3M Particulate Respirator and Surgical Masks are both certified as a respirator by NIOSH and are cleared to be used as surgical masks in the OR by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
