Next Safety's Respirator Outperforms 3M's N95 Respirator

    JEFFERSON, N.C., August 13 /CNW/ - The U.S Government, in pre-pandemic
preparation, has stockpiled over 100 million N95 respirators. However, a study
conducted by the CDC, in conjunction with NIOSH and OSHA, has determined that
N95 respirators are ineffective in disasters and pandemic events. This study,
involving 538 participants in New Orleans, following Hurricane Katrina, found
that 76% of participants could not correctly fit the mask. In a pandemic
situation, these individuals would inhale deadly pathogens.

    Next Safety will begin shipping the world's most advanced respirator for
pre-pandemic planning August, 2007. Unlike the N95 respirator, which is
passive and highly fit dependent, Next Safety's bPure 8500 series respirators
for pandemic events, provides a constant flow of extremely pure air. The
constant, positive pressure flow, prevents leak around during inhalation,
inhibiting pathogens from entering the lungs.
