The NT-V2 Advanced Technology Respirator Face Mask is now available through BeyondN95Mask.com, a division of Spartan Business Services, LLC.
The NT-V2 Mask is the next step beyond N95 Respirator Masks (patent pending, FDA submission in progress). This unique NIOSH approved N95 respirator utilizes Nano Technology to help neutralize airborne germs, such as those which cause Swine Flu (H1N1), Bird Flu (H5N1), Anthrax, Tuberculosis, and MRSA. It is the world's first self-sterilizing mask, manufactured by one of only two companies in the world with an FDA approved N95 mask.
The NT-V2 represents a technological advance over other N95 masks. It has 7 layer construction (versus the 3 layer industry standard) and offers bi-directional protection. Nano particles & nano silver are embedded in each layer which work to disable viruses at the cellular level, repel moisture and filter bacteria, viruses, fine particles and blood. Because the nano technology helps neutralize germs, the mask can offer up to 24 hours of protection (many other masks need changing every 2 hours).
On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) signaled that a global pandemic of novel influenza A (H1N1) was underway by raising the worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 6. In mid September 2009 in the United States, the CDC reports that influenza activity continued to increase in the United States compared to the prior weeks, with twenty-six states reporting widespread flu activity at this time.
The CDC states that the use of a facemask can be considered in several situations, including; people with increased risk of severe illness from flu in crowded settings in communities with H1N1 outbreaks; a caregiver to a person with a flu like illness; healthcare workers caring for persons with known, probable or suspected 2009 H1N1 or influenza-like illness; and certain other occupations when there is an H1N1 outbreak in the community.
The NT-V2 Advanced Technology Mask can be an important element in your preparations for a public health emergency.
