Why PAPR?

Regulations Require Respiratory Protection

Groups like the California Dental Association (CDA) are providing guidance that compliance with regulations during the pandemic means "dental personnel should wear N95 respirators when performing aerosol-generating procedures on all patients who are “well,” that is do not have confirmed or suspected COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the new coronavirus."

 

PAPR is Recommended by CDC Over N95 Protection

In a recent article, we shared guidance from the CDC indicating that the use of Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) is far more effective and preferable over the use of N95 respiratory protection.

 

Avoid Cumbersome Fit Testing Procedures and Breathe Easy in the One-Size-Fits-All Protection of Loose Fit Respirators

OSHA is Cracking Down on Dental Practices for Proper Fit Testing Procedures

Furthermore, the CDA states: "Dentist employers should understand that although the required annual fit testing requirement has been temporarily suspended, they are still required to provide the initial fit test for each employee who is required to wear a respirator. Fit testing is a two-step process that is usually performed by two different entities: First is the medical evaluation, which is followed by the actual fit test."
