          Industrial masks with a great seal

          it’s all about the mask seal, right?

          As someone who wears and promotes the wearing of masks, I’m obviously a big believer in respiratory protection. Inherent in a mask’s ability to protect the air we breathe is the ability to direct as much air through the filter as possible. This means that the mask seal around the face is critical. But I’m…



          WHO annual mean suggests lower safe air pollution threshold

          In a previous article, recommended wearing a mask when the US Air Quality Index is at “Moderate” (AQI 51) or higher. But annual air pollution exposure is usually more salient than short-term exposure unless the air quality on a given day is seriously unhealhty. A recent examination of the World Health Organization’s current guidelines for…

          Cold and flu season is back again this year. Health authorities aren’t certain how intense this year’s season is compared to last season.? But I’m taking precautions, which means that cold and flu season is also Mask season. My experience with a series of contagious bugs leading to a hospital stay last spring has convinced…

          When cold and allergy season overlap, April is the cruelest month

          Cold and allergy season have overlapped more this year. This winter has been a long roller coaster alternating between cold and mild weather. As such, pollen begins flying around even as the late winter illnesses continue to pile upon each other. When I went to the ER two weeks ago, I thought it was a…



          Masks, hospital isolation, protecting myself and the community

          I had an unexpected adventure over the weekend. I went to the hospital ER a few nights ago due to asthma exacerbation and was surprised to find out that my asthma was acting up because of an RSV infection, which stands for Respiratory Syncytial (pronounced sin-SISH-uhl) Virus. While RSV is similar to a cold, it…
