• ECRI: Imported N95-Style Masks May Pose Safety Risks

    As COVID-19 cases increase, so does the need to protect healthcare workers and patients from the risk of exposure. While the use of N95 respirator masks helps mitigate this problem, many N95-style respirator masks available through nontraditional international suppliers do not meet safety standards.

    ECRI’s recent research indicates nearly 70% of imported respiratory masks fail to meet NIOSH standards for filtration. ECRI’s N95-Style Mask Testing Program provides assurance on whether masks you have procured or plan to purchase meet industry standards.

    Read ECRI’s recent PPE Testing Report for more information on the performance of N95-style masks.
