Protection on Board from Contaminated Cabin Air
If available and used correctly, a respirator can selectively reduce the amount of polllutants you might otherwise inhale. There are many kinds of masks to protect from air pollution available on the market and companies that specialize; often these companies produce a variety of masks for the workplace environment which are rarely available in sizes that fit children.
‘Soft’ masks for your hand luggage purse or pocket.
If you are looking for a small, foldable mask with good protection you should always check out the technology they use. It should indicate for which particulates, VOC’s, type of fumes, smoke, gas etc. the specific mask is good for and that it has an 'activated carbon' filter within.
So, looking far and wide also for kids’ sizes, we came across the following company, which provides 5 different sizes, the smallest one to fit a baby weighing 6 -10kg (indicating roughly from about 2 months old). They also provide their technology and their ‘Official Testing Results’ (same page bottom right). Specific information about this mask can be viewed here.
Please be aware of the fact, that no mask company will guarantee that all particulates, gasses, fumes or individual components will be filtered by using foldable masks, not even when using half-face or full-face masks with cartridges! Cartridges usually filter specific particulates and not all. The only true protection would be by wearing a hazmat suit with built in CO cartridges and connected pressurised oxygen (=compressed air filter) in which case you would be in a unit which is cut-off from the environment, similar to workers in a chemical factory/ laboratory or other work environment with health hazardeous chemicals!
Your help is very much appreciated!
