MakerMask: Science-Based Mask Designs for Community Makers How to Donate Hand-Sewn Face Masks | Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for Employees and Patients Vanderbilt University Medical Center has an adequate supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) currently on hand to protect its employees and patients from COVID-19. However, the global supply for this equipment continues to be uncertain and we are actively taking steps to secure more supplies. Many individuals, groups and businesses from the community have generously offered to help assist in our preparedness efforts by sewing cloth masks. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not suggest cloth material as a first-line defense against the coronavirus causing COVID-19, cloth masks work well for other conditions and can help conserve precious reserves of N-95 respirator masks. If you would like to donate cloth masks to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital or Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital, please email Donated masks are throughly laundered and sanitized before being distributed.

Mascarillas caseras: ¿cuáles son los mejores materiales para frenar al virus? La Voz de Galicia Lorena Maya Redacción 11/04/2020 09:50 h Como forma de ralentizar la transmisión de coronavirus y debido a la escasez de materiales homologados, reservados para el personal sanitario, muchas personas han optado por el uso de mascarillas caseras como protección. En los últimos días su uso ha sido además recomendado por el Centro Europeo de Prevención y Control de Enfermedades para lugares cerrados y concurridos. Esto se debe a que no todas las telas pueden filtrar las partículas de virus expelidas al estornudar, toser o incluso al hablar y cantar. Entre los materiales caseros, explica la Sociedad Española de Salud Pública y Administración Sanitaria (SESPAS), los de algodón «funcionan mejor que otros» ya que no solo tienen una alta capacidad de filtración sino que también, al ser un material flexible, logra una mejor adaptación a la cara. Las bufandas, el lino, y la seda, en tanto, son los que menos evitan las transmisiones. Conoce toda nuestra oferta de newsletters

The seismic wave of this pandemic has shaken up our lives in too many ways to count. COVID-19, the most recent strain of novel coronavirus we’re contending with, has caused numerous illnesses, and unfortunately deaths, worldwide. We are all taking measures to stay safe and flatten the curve, from washing our hands to full on social isolation; these methods have been deemed effective with a resounding consensus. However, one safety measure has become a point of controversy and contention: the face mask. Differing and flip-flopping views of face masks have resulted in confusion, and even skepticism. We're here to give you the facts. Should I Wear a Face Mask for COVID-19? This recommendation was based on the overwhelming shortage of face masks for those who desperately need them. However, on April 3, 2020, the CDC changed their tune. So why has their recommendation changed? Medical Grade Face Masks

Making your own face mask? Some fabrics work better than others, study finds Federal health officials now recommend people cover their mouths and noses with cloth face masks when in public to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Friday afternoon, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidance on the matter, recommending individuals use cloth face coverings "in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain," such as grocery stores and pharmacies. The guidance recommends people use fabric coverings, not surgical masks or specialized N95 masks, which should be reserved for health care providers. If you are making your own covering, new research finds that some fabrics are better than others at filtering out viral particles. "You have to use relatively high-quality cloth," Dr. Full coverage of the coronavirus outbreak Face coverings made of fabric, public health experts note, aren't intended to protect wearers from getting sick, but rather, to prevent them from spreading the virus to others.

Face masks for COVID-19: A deep dive into the data As COVID-19 cases increase sharply nationwide, some health experts are now recommending that seemingly healthy members of the public wear cloth masks when they’re out and about. On April 3, President Trump announced a new federal recommendation urging the public to wear cloth masks to prevent people who are infected, but may not have symptoms, from unknowingly spreading the disease. The recommendation is an about-face from previous guidance on mask usage. Until now, officials at the World Health Organization, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other agencies worldwide have discouraged the public from wearing masks unless they are sick or caring for someone who is sick. They noted that there is little evidence to support mass masking and that the limited data we do have suggests it may reduce disease transmission only marginally at best. With evidence of benefits in short supply, experts also raised concerns about potential harms. As such, some experts—Dr.

Cómo hacer mascarillas caseras con materiales cotidianos y sin coser El hecho de que el COVID-19 se transmita también durante la fase asintomática de la enfermedad ha llevado a que las autoridades sanitarias de nuestro país recomienden el uso de mascarillas como método de prevención. Y, aunque su efectividad para frenar los contagios continúa siendo objeto de debate (la OMS sigue sin recomendarla excepto en caso de estar contagiado), en España se ha generalizado su uso como método para combatir la pandemia. Sin embargo, la escasez de mascarillas y la necesidad de usarlas a diario de quienes tienen que salir de casa cada jornada para trabajar o ir al supermercado, ha despertado la creatividad y el ingenio de muchos para crear sus propias mascarillas caseras. Si bien ya sabemos que su protección (en ambas direcciones) no puede ser comparable con la de las mascarillas tipo FPP, no son pocos los se ven obligados a optar por estas soluciones caseras para reducir las posibilidades de contagiarse o ser contagiados fuera de casa.

COMMENTARY: Masks-for-all for COVID-19 not based on sound data | CIDRAP Dr. Brosseau is a national expert on respiratory protection and infectious diseases and professor (retired), University of Illinois at Chicago.Dr. Sietsema is also an expert on respiratory protection and an assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In response to the stream of misinformation and misunderstanding about the nature and role of masks and respirators as source control or personal protective equipment (PPE), we critically review the topic to inform ongoing COVID-19 decision-making that relies on science-based data and professional expertise. As noted in a previous commentary, the limited data we have for COVID-19 strongly support the possibility that SARS-CoV-2—the virus that causes COVID-19—is transmitted by inhalation of both droplets and aerosols near the source. Data lacking to recommend broad mask use We do not recommend requiring the general public who do not have symptoms of COVID-19-like illness to routinely wear cloth or surgical masks because: Fit

MADE EVERYDAY - Coronavirus: ¿Cómo hacer mascarillas homologadas y caseras? Los tutoriales para hacer mascarillas caseras han corrido como la pólvora desde que el Gobierno recomendó hace unas semanas el uso de mascarillas para la población general al salir a la calle o acudir a puntos de aglomeración, como supermercados y farmacias. A pesar de que "no hay aún un consenso claro respecto al uso de mascarillas médicas en el ámbito comunitario a nivel internacional para la prevención de la infección por SARS-CoV-2", desde el Ministerio de Sanidad han publicado varios documentos que informan sobre cómo utilizarlas de forma correcta y cómo hacer diferentes mascarillas homologadas de manera casera, con o sin máquina de coser. Así, el Ministerio de Industria, Comercio y Turismo ha subido a su página web hasta siete guías sobre las distintas mascarilllas que se pueden utilizar contra el coronavirus Covid-19, así como sus diferencias de aplicación y las normativas que deben cumplir.
