If the face fits
23 January 2013
As part of a strategy to manage the Swine Flu pandemic, hundreds of respiratory face masks worn by staff at hospitals and in primary care across Hertfordshire have been checked by advanced Fit Tester instrumentation hir
The Hertfordshire Primary Care Trust hired the TSI PortaCount 8020 as a protective measure to ensure that all FFP3 masks were properly fitted, prior to staff treating patients suffering from the H1N1 flu in certain high risk situations.
The PortaCount 8020 can determin the fit of almost any half or full-face mask by measuring the particle concentration both inside and outside the connected respirator.
