UF Health Anesthesiology Team Devises Respirator Mask Made From Existing Hospital Materials

With respiratory masks used by health workers battling the coronavirus in short supply, the University of Florida Health’s department of anesthesiology has developed masks that can be produced in large quantities using materials already found in hospitals and medical facilities.

N95 respirator masks have been in high demand worldwide since the outbreak of COVID-19. That led Bruce Spiess, M.D., a UF Health anesthesiology professor, to create a simple respirator mask from the sterile wrapping that is normally used to surround surgical instrument trays before they pass through gas sterilization or an autoclave.
