These face shields, combined with an N-95 mask for medical workers or a protective facial mask for everyone, helps to provide excellent protection against potential contamination from droplets, splash, splatter, spit, blood pathogens, body fluids, or harmful chemical splash. They are lightweight, comfortable to wear, quick and easy to put on and remove. They can be easily sanitized and helps to block the user from touching their face which can spread germs and disease.
A face shield is classified as personal protective equipment (PPE) which provides barrier protection to the facial area and related mucous
membranes (eyes, nose, lips). A face shield offers a number of potential
advantages, compared with other forms of
face/eye protection used in healthcare and related fields.
Face shields are PPE that are frequently used as barrier protection for
infection control purposes by numerous workers and by the general public during the coronavirus pandemic. There currently is no
standard regarding face/eye protection from biological hazards, but common sense dictates that this equipment will assist to prevent direct hits to the face if someone coughs or sneezes in front of you.
Due to the lack of a
good facial seal peripherally that can allow for aerosol penetration,
face shields should not be used as solitary face/eye protection, but used as one of several safety measures to combat the spread of coronavirus, in conjunction with other PPE, such as protective facemasks, goggles, etc.
Face shields provide protection for essential workers including healthcare
workers, dental providers, veterinary care personnel, laboratory
workers, pre-hospital emergency medical providers, police, firefighters,
and are now being used by everyday people who need to protect themselves during the pandemic.
Some of the advantages of a Face Shield over numerous other forms of facial protection:
protect a larger portion of the face
less retained dermal facial heat
less fogging than goggles
no impact on breathing resistance
no fit testing required
can be disinfected easily
wearers do not need to be clean shaven
easy to don and doff
no impact on vocalization
can be worn concurrent to other face/eye PPE
do not impede facial nonverbal communication
reduced patient anxiety
protects against self-inoculation over a wider facial area
may extend the useful life of a protective facemask when used concurrently
