PANDEMIC MITIGATION PLANNING - PROTECTION

According to the CDC, the effectiveness of N95 respirators to control exposures to airborne infectious diseases is highly dependent on proper fit and use.
Respirator fit testing is about more than compliance with standards or about “checking the box” as quickly as possible, it’s about safety. Staff working in dangerous environments deserve the very best protection possible from a respirator. PortaCount Fit Testers deliver safety by utilizing the most effective quantitative fit testing method available to identify poor fitting masks.

FIT TEST ANY N95 RESPIRATOR IN UNDER 2½ MINUTES

The 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a public health emergency that healthcare facilities and workers are preparing for worldwide. Healthcare workers need confidence in their respiratory protection as the disease continues to spread. It is vital to properly prepare and train healthcare workers to respond to the threat.

UNLEASH THE VERSATILITY OF A PORTACOUNT FIT TESTER

The PortaCount Fit Tester Model 8048 provides a consistent and objective testing experience across all respirator types, including all N95 filtering facepieces. FitCheck Mode™ shows in real-time how respirator fit changes throughout donning and adjustment, helping users select the right mask and identify the best fit more quickly. Video animations guide staff through proper fit test exercise movements during a fit test, providing a consistent testing experience and freeing fit test administrators to multitask. Group fit testing allows administrators to test up to four personnel with four PortaCounts simultaneously.

  • Quantitative respirator fit testing (QNFT)
  • Half-mask fit testing & Full-face fit testing
  • Disposable filtering-facepiece fit testing for Series 100/99/95/P1/P2/P3 masks
  • SCBA fit testing
  • Gas mask fit testing
  • PAPR fit testing

CAN YOU BE CONFIDENT IN YOUR QUALITATIVE FIT TEST?

To fit test respirators, many healthcare facilities are using manual and time-consuming qualitative methods with Saccharin and Bitrex. With these qualitative methods, fit test administrators must rely on a person’s senses and self-reported feedback to determine if a mask is a proper fit. As qualitative fit testing is a manual process, there can be considerable variation in how fit tests are performed and the quality of those tests.

Quantitative respirator fit testing eliminates the guesswork and subjectivity associated with qualitative testing methods and provides users with objective data that accurately describes respirator fit.
