2011 MAXAIR® Eliminates the Need for Annual “Fit Testing”

November 8, 2011, Irvine, CA - Bio-Medical Devices Intl. recognized that health-related events this decade and world economics underscore the need for a respirator that not only integrates the best features of both technologies, but also improves on them.

In addition to providing superior protection compared to N95 face masks, the MAXAIR system eliminates the need for annual “fit testing” for workers.  MAXAIR improves productivity and reduces expenses associated with fit testing, potentially saving hospitals thousands of dollars annually.

MAXAIR Powered air Purifying Respirators (PAPRs) provide respiratory protection against airborne (aerosol and droplet) particulates. All are NIOSH approved designs whose heritage originated in healthcare 20 years ago and have become the respirators of choice verses conventional PAPRs and N95 mask designs.

The MAXAIR CAPR, which was recently introduced at APIC 2011 - Baltimore, MD, has a DLC (Disposable Lens Cuff) for a wider angle field of vision and is considered the next generation respirator, taking respiratory protection to a new level.  However, all MAXAIR PAPRs offer unique hose free technology, high air filtration efficiency, quick de-con/wiping of helmet and do not require fit-testing.

MAXAIR’s safety LED Indicators are strategically located in your peripheral vision, providing the user with critical information regarding airflow and battery life.

The MAXAIR system is ideally suited for most healthcare and medical environments requiring respiratory and facial protection.

These environments include:

Hospitals, Infection Control/Emergency Response Personnel – Quick to don and doff, MAXAIR’s simple-to-use design is perfect for fast-paced healthcare environments.

MAXAIR is the next generation respirator for front line, daily-use employee health/safety needs and for users that can't pass fit testing.

Research Laboratories –   Excellent solution for BSL/3 research labs. The lightweight design and increased mobility allow users to sustain high productivity in their demanding schedules.

Forensics/Pathology – The lightweight design provides much needed comfort for the user in both the field and clinical environments.  While offering the necessary protection to the user from exposure, it also helps reduce the potential for contamination of crime scene investigations.
