A surgical mask, also known as a procedure mask, medical mask or simply as a face mask, is intended to be worn by health professionals during surgery and nursing to avoid catching the bacteria containing liquid droplets and aerosols from the wearer's mouth and nose.
They are not designed to protect the wearer from inhaling airborne bacteria or virus particles and are less effective than respirators, such as N95 or FFP masks, which provide better protection due to their material, shape, and tight seal.
