Question: Will this mask prevent swine flu?
Answer: Below is some information about surgical & procedure masks.

Ultra 3-in-1 Ear Loop Face Masks item# XE0365VMAX is PFE rated at 99.7% at 0.1 micron.

The intended use of a surgical / procedure mask is to help prevent large particles expelled by the wearer (e.g. spit, mucous) from reaching the patient or work environment. Some surgical masks also have fluid resistant properties to help reduce the risk of splashes or sprays of blood, body fluids, secretions and excretions from reaching the wearer's mouth and nose. Fluids contacting the outer surface of the surgical mask will not immediately soak through to the interior of the surgical mask and contact the wearer's lips or skin.

Surgical masks are not designed to pass a fit test. Flat surgical masks fit loosely over the face leaving large gaps between the mask and the wearer. It is unlikely that most of the air will pass through the mask material. The air (and any airborne particles) will go through the gaps. Cup or Cone shaped surgical masks appear to fit tighter to the face, but they are not designed to seal to the face and cannot be relied upon to provide respiratory protection.

Surgical masks are typically donned for a specific procedure. For infection control purposes masks are typically disposed of after each procedure/patient activity.

In the United States, surgical masks are cleared for sale by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA reviews data submitted by the manufacturer but does not test the surgical mask. The FDA only allows the sale of products that meet their minimum requirements based on the data supplied.
Common tests for surgical masks include: particle filtration efficiency (PFE), bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE), fluid resistance, differential pressure and flammability.

PFE: The PFE test is a quality indicator for healthcare surgical masks. The PFE test is not an indicator of respirator protection performance The filter media of a surgical mask with a very high (>95%) PFE may be less than 70% efficient when tested with the NIOSH N95 test method. The results of the surgical mask PFE testing and NIOSH filtration efficiency testing should not be compared. Conditions of the PFE test include:

  • Polystyrene latex sphere test aerosol approximately 0.1 m in size;
  • Airflow rate of 28 liters per minute (lpm). o Unneutralized test aerosol.
  • No preconditioning

BFE: This test assesses the ability of a mask to provide a barrier to large particles expelled by the wearer. It is not a filtration efficiency test and it does not evaluate the mask's ability to provide any protection to the wearer. Two methodologies are available: the "Modified Greene and Vesley Test or ASTM method F2101-01. Fluid Resistance: The fluid resistance test is typically conducted based on the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) Test Method F 1862 "Resistance to Penetration by Synthetic Blood" which determines the mask's resistance to synthetic blood squirted at it under varying pressures.
