Which protective mask is suitable for children to wear in haze days? Which type of protective mask is suitable for children? Compared with adults, children are more harmed by haze weather, but wearing professional anti-haze masks for a long time It is easy to cause difficulty in breathing. ZhengQun Medical Devices Co., LTD
. recommends that children choose a non-woven mask with better breathability or a protective mask with a breathing valve as much as possible.
The harm of haze weather to children
Haze weather has many hazards to the human body, the most important of which are respiratory tract infections, acute tracheal and bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia and other diseases, and even emphysema and lung cancer in severe cases. For children with unsound respiratory systems, the harm caused by smog weather is far greater than that of adults.
Do children need respiratory protection?
Because children have no nose hairs, they have one less protective wall than adults. Children are shorter and closer to the ground, and are more likely to inhale the pollutants raised on the ground into their lungs. Children's lungs are immature and their breathing rates are higher, all of which make bacteria and viruses more likely than adults.
Which protective mask is suitable for children to wear
Professional anti-smog masks are actually not suitable for children, because adults wear anti-smog masks with good airtightness, and they can't stand it for more than 15 minutes. Children are young and may be at risk of suffocation if they are not cared for properly.
Therefore, children under the age of 3 are not recommended to wear masks, and parents should try to take their children out of the house as little as possible on hazy days.
Some parents will choose disposable medical masks, fashionable protective masks, activated carbon masks, etc. for their children. In fact, most of these protective masks are not suitable for children to wear. Disposable medical masks have weak dust filtering function, and their filtering effect against haze weather is very small.
Fashionable protective masks have better cold-proof and warm-keeping effect, but the function of blocking bacteria, viruses, viruses and fine particles is too weak; activated carbon masks can effectively isolate harmful gases such as benzene, formaldehyde, odor, and odor in the air, but they are suitable for dust particles in the air. The blocking effect is not much.
