IRC FACE SHIELD
The face shield is an indispensable piece of PPE in the dental clinic. No dentist performing a dental procedure will be contented with just wearing a surgical mask!
The face shield offers you additional barrier against contaminated and infectious debris flying out from the patient’s oral cavity, such as particles or pastes of removed tooth substances, droplets of blood and saliva, etc. etc. However, a lot of flying debris still escapes beyond the face shield and lands on your face and neck. Wearing it is still better than nothing!
IRC FACE SHIELD is unique in having a more extensive coverage of the face up to the tragus of the ear on both sides. (Other face shields normally end up to the side of the face.)
Price: HK$12/piece (Normal Price: HK$15/piece)
The face shield is a popular piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) that offers a barrier for the facial structures, particularly the eyes, against contact with droplets, aerosols and splashes generated during patient’s treatment. Although this device does not provide total isolation of the facial structures, it does offer a convenient and effective means of barrier against contact with direct head-on projections of fluid contaminants generated in various procedures.
The IRC Face Shield covers wide areas of the face. Comfortable and secure wearing is offered by its light weight and elastic headband. The superior transparency of the facial visor enables clear vision of the operative field. It does not fog up during use.
Instructions for use:
For optimal personal protection, the IRC Face Shield should be used together with the face mask and protective cap.
It is sleeved over the head with the head cushion positioned over the forehead just above the eyebrows and the elastic headband above the occiput. Its position should be properly adjusted so that the facial visor stays vertically when the head is in the upright position for optimal barrier effect.
Allowing the facial visor to tilt upward is a very common and serious mistake in application which should be avoided. In this position, the barrier effect is greatly diminished because it allows free entry of contaminants from below the facial visor.
