Alpha Pro to increase N-95 respirator masks production

Alpha Pro Tech, a leading manufacturer of products designed to protect people, products and environments, including disposable protective apparel and building products announced that as one of the leading manufacturer of N-95 respirator masks, the company currently has a supply of N-05 respiratory masks and is capable of accelerating production to meet the increased demand amidst concerns regarding the Swine influenza outbreak.

To date, the World health Organization has confirmed 40 cases of swind influenza A (H1N1) virus infection in the U.S. Human cases have been confirmed in residents of California, Kansas, New York, Ohio and Texas as well as Canada and Mexico. Approximately 103 fatalities, all in Mexico, have been reported. This virus is resistant to certain antiviral medications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that:
• Personnel engaged in aerosol generating activities (e.g. collection clinical specimens, endotracheal intubation, nebulizer treatment, bronchoscopy and resuscitation involving emergency intubation or cardiac pulmonary resuscitation) for suspected of confirmed swine influenza A (H1N1) cases should wear a fit-tested disposable N95 respirator.

• Pending clarification of transmission patterns for this virus, personnel providing direct patient care for suspected of confirmed swine influenza A (H1N1) cases should wear a fit-tested disposable N95 respirator when entering the patient room.

• Any person potentially infected with Swine Influenza should wear a surgical mask when outside of the patient room, and should be encouraged to wash hands frequently and follow respiratory hygiene practices.

Al Millar, President of Alpha Pro Tech commented, "Alpha Pro Tech is committed to increasing its manufacturing efforts to provide sufficient quantities of N-95 respirator masks, manufactured in our Salt lake City, UT facility, to address the ongoing healthcare crisis."
