Type II surgical mask
Type II masks are principally intended for use by healthcare professionals. They offer more than 98% BFE protection and at the same time high breathability.
Type IIR surgical mask
Also type IIR medical masks are intended for use by healthcare professionals but they protect the wearer against splashes of potentially contaminated fluids. They may (according to EN 14683:2019 standard) have lower breathability (higher pressure difference) than type II masks. Beside standard more than 98% BFE protection these masks also offer artificial blood splash protection up to 21.3 kPa.
Type I surgical mask
Lastly, surgical mask type I is made for non medical personnel. Type I masks offer BFE > 95% and similarly high breathability.
