Description

I’ve just started offering personal protective equipment. Each of these items, I have personally tested and can wholeheartedly recommend. Believe me, there’s a lot of junk out there.

I’m ordering stuff from all over the web, basically wherever I can find it in stock – it changes daily. That means that your order might be split into separate packages, so please don’t be alarmed if everything doesn’t arrive at once.

Also, I will be adding more products as I can find them. Specifically, I hope to offer additional types of respirators/masks and filters once they become available. Also, my apologies in advance if some of the products I list suddenly go out of stock, and I have to refund your money.

Check out the important video below in which I discuss various various types of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Also, please watch the following video that discusses my observations about the coronavirus and specific preparations that I recommend.

1. Are you a medical professional professional?

No. I am a concerned citizen who is just sharing my thoughts and ideas. Please do not treat my advice as professional advice, medical or otherwise.

2. Where can I find N-95 (or other) respirators?

Unfortunately, respirators are in very short supply due to the COVID-19 coronavirus. It is unclear when additional inventory will be available, but when it does, I will offer it.

3. Can I re-use disposable N-95 respirators?

The guidance for this is a little unclear. Medical agencies have advised that when shortages exist, N-95 respirators can be re-used if they’re not soiled. The problem is that there is no way to tell if the respirator has been contaminated with a viral or bacterial agent. For that reason, I recommend decontaminating disposable respirators between each use.

4. How can I decontaminate disposable N-95 respirators?

There is no approved method of decontaminating N-95 respirators. With that said, UV-C light has been shown to destroy a variety of pathogens, including flu viruses and coronaviruses. Based on literature that I reviewed, I believe that UV-C light applied to a 1 J/cm^2 energy level would be an effective method of decontaminating disposable respirators. This is my opinion and not a government-approved recommendation. Please see my video “Decontaminating N-95 respirators” for more information.

5. How can I decontaminate half-face or full-face respirators?

I recommended fully submerging the respirator in a bleach solution (1 part bleach to 49 parts water). After two minutes, remove, rinse with clean water, and allow to dry. My recommendation is based on a number of published studies, but should not be taken as government-approved guidance. Also, care must be taken when removing the respirator since it may be contaminated — wash hands carefully after removing.
