TECHNICAL BULLETIN – POWERED AIR-PURIFYING RESPIRATOR (PAPR) IN A HEALTHCARE SETTING
17 August 2020
This is a general document and is not specific to any contaminant, including viruses and bacteria.
During these unprecedented times respiratory protection will be recommended for certain workers in a healthcare setting. The recommendations often focus on approved respirators such as “N95, FFP2, FFP3 or similar.” When used correctly, respirators can help reduce wearers’ exposures to airborne particulate hazards but no matter how well a respirator seals to the face and how efficient the filter media is, no respirators will eliminate exposures entirely.
This document will guide you through Centurion Safety Products ConceptAir and its use in a healthcare setting.
