FAQs - SAFEMASK GUARDIAN

 

What are bacteria?

They are a large group of unicellular microorganisms. Bacteria are ubiquitous in every habitat on Earth. The vast majority of the bacteria in the body are rendered harmless by the protective effects of the immune system and a few are beneficial. However, some bacteria are pathogenic and cause infectious diseases. The most common fatal bacterial diseases are respiratory infections such as tuberculosis.

 

What is a pathogen?

Pathogen, infectious agent or germ, is a biological agent that causes disease or illness to its host. There are several pathways whereby pathogens can invade a host such as the nose and throat.

 

How do Bacteria spread?

  • Through Exchange of Bodily Fluids

Sneezing and coughing are two efficient ways to ensure bacteria are spread. If you sneeze, cough or blow your nose while in a crowd, you are essentially sharing your bodily fluids with the people around you, and therefore ensuring their contamination.

  • Through the Air

Bacteria can be easily passed through the air. If bodily fluids are launched into the air through sneezing or coughing, it can affect the people in the area, due to its airborne properties. If the bacteria are in the air, anyone is fair game.

  • Through Poor Hygiene

During flu and cold season, the best way to prevent the spread of bacteria is through proper hygiene. That means washing your hands regularly and using antibacterial wipes whenever necessary. Changing your mask with every patient

  • Through Rapid Growth

Bacteria are an organism that is able to grow and divide at a surprisingly rapid rate. Bacteria can multiply relatively efficiently. Even the growth of bacteria can be increased merely by warmth and moisture. If the conditions are just right, the bacteria will grow and spread quite easily.

  • Through Contact

 

What happens when we sneeze?

When you sneeze droplets are propelled into the air at speeds of 320 km per hour. A person is most likely to transfer their cold from one to another in the first 2-4 days when they are sneezing, coughing and have a runny nose. A person with a cold can spread the infection by coughing and/or sneezing. Bacteria or viruses can be passed on by touching or shaking hands with another person. Touching food with dirty hands will also allow viruses or bacteria from the intestine to spread.

 

What is an antimicrobial?

An antimicrobial is a substance that kills or inhibits the growth of microbes.

 

How to avoid infection?

Wash your hands thoroughly (often one of the best ways to avoid catching a cold). Shaking hands with someone who has a cold is risky, so avoid rubbing your eyes or touching your face. With a patient that has a cold wear the antimicrobial mask SafeMask Guardian by Medicom.

 

MRSA in the Dental Office  

 

MRSA also called Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

 

MRSA causes an infection that is resistant to several common antibiotics. There are two types of infection. Hospital-associated MRSA happens to people in healthcare settings. Community-associated MRSA happens to people who have close skin-to-skin contact with others, such as athletes involved in football and wrestling. Infection control is key to stopping MRSA in hospitals. To prevent community-associated MRSA

  • Practice good hygiene
  • Keep cuts and scrapes clean and covered with a bandage until healed
  • Avoid contact with other people’s wounds or bandages
  • Avoid sharing personal items, such as towels, washcloths, razors, or clothes
  • Wash soiled sheets, towels and clothes in hot water with bleach and dry in a hot dryer

What is Streptococcus pyogenes?

S. pyogenes is the cause of many important human diseases ranging from mild superficial skin infections to life-threatening systemic diseases. Infections typically begin in the throat or skin; they include strep throat, localized skin infection and even in certain cases scarlet fever.

 

What is Moraxella catarrhalis?

Moraxella Catarrhalis i was considered a saprophyte of the upper respiratory tract associated with no significant pathogenic consequences. And is a common cause of otitis media and sinusitis and an occasional cause of laryngitis. It can cause bronchitis and pneumonia in children and adults with underlying chronic lung disease and is occasionally a cause of meningitis M catarrhalis is also associated with nosocomial infections.
