What kind of mask should be wearing for Wild Fire Smoke? July 16 2022, 2 Comments
Forest fire smoke is a complex and dynamic mixture of gases and very small particles that can irritate the respiratory system and cause systemic inflammation.
Our N95 HEPA with activated carbon nose mask is the right one to protect you for wildfire smoke. Since no air leaking, HEPA H11 can small particles and activated carbon fibre can remove VOC's for you.
There are a lot of wildfire in Rocky Mountain both Canada and US.
Advice to minimize health effects from Government Website:
- If you have a chronic condition, have rescue medication on hand at all times and a plan to follow if your rescue medication cannot bring your condition under control.
- Look for indoor environments that might be less smoky, such as shopping malls, community centres and libraries.
- Avoid physical exertion because the amount of smoke you breathe increases as your breathing rate increases.
- Keep hydrated as it helps your body deal with inflammation.
The face mask can not remove the smoke since there is air leaking and can not remove the very small particles, e.g. odors, smells, or VOC's.
